Styling tips

Kiss Me Kate Studio shares top tips for pulling off your event.

Tip 1

Rent your birthday girl’s attire!  There are some fabulous web sites that offer gorgeous luxury party wear rentals for a fraction of the full price if you were to purchase them! Check out Rainey’s Closet and The Borrowed Boutique for fabulous rentals!

Tip 2

Do as much prep work as you can in the weeks and days leading up to the party to make it as stress free as possible!

Tip 3

Have a friend who has offered to help? Have her take photos during the party so you can focus on having a good time plus have lots of memories after the fun is over. Take photos of the birthday girl with each guest, print out and include with each thank you note as a fun remembrance for the guest.

Tip 4

For a fun twist on food for the party guests, have a DIY taco bar!  Provide taco shells, different types of fillings and plenty of toppings!

Tip 5

Along with a taco bar, have a DIY ice cream cookie sandwich bar. Give your guests a few different choices of cookies then keep it simple with vanilla ice cream. Of course, provide lots of options to roll the cookies in like sprinkles, chopped nuts, and even mini marshmallows!  To save time and if you have young guests, you can even prep the cookies and ice cream sandwiches together then simply have your guests choose which options to roll the cookies in. Fun, fun!!
