Holiday Party Inspiration from Tinsel & Twine

The countdown to sparkly dresses, lots of bubbly, and awkward small talk with your boss is on. To celebrate holiday party season, our design pals at Tinsel & Twine took over the styling of the Green Building and 501 Union to show off the true spirit of a stellar holiday party: the beautiful mess of the aftermath! Read through for their expert tips for creating an unforgettable night!


1) Create a stylish lounge area that provides the perfect place for guests to perch, drop glasses, and kick of shoes between dance sets. 

2) Since guests will likely be spending quite a bit of time at the bar, we like to use this space as a blank canvas for striking flowers, lights, or other decor details.


3) The venues feel polished without being stuffy, and intimate with enough floorspace for spins and  high-kicks. Our clients have always had an amazing time there. And any given party tends to look like this by the end of the night: a beautiful mess!

4) We love the Gatsby-esque spectacle of serpentine streamers. Pick a big moment-- a toast or kiss at midnight-- and cue a bass drop for a big, explosive moment to let these fly."
