Styling tips

Mint Event Design shares its top tips for pulling off this event.

Tip 1

I love incorporating as many cute desserts into the dessert table as possible — I try to offer more variety than quantity.

Tip 2

I personally love the mix of vintage finds with modern accents, but you can use your own style.

Tip 3

Set up as much of the party decor and prep as much of the food the day before the party so that you have plenty of time and don’t feel stressed the day of the event.
