Elegant Invitations and Postage
A classically elegant event calls for a very special invitation. Much has changed in the online invitation world since we first curated this page. Now most of our favorite merchants carry specialty papers and various upscale print techniques including thermography, letterpress, embossing & even foil stamped & laser-cut. Below are just a few sample styles. Again, any color will be beautiful.

Now you can easily add some elegance to everyday stationery or as an elegant alternative to having your return addresses printed on your party invitation envelopes. They also make wonderful gifts.

Elegant Table Decor
Hunt through your cabinets and pull out all your crystal and silver pieces. This is the occasion to use all those wedding gifts and your grandmother’s silver tea set. Just be sure to shine it all up ( Wrights Silver Polish Cream)!
Supplement your own pieces with stunning bone china, sterling silver, and crystal glassware.
Elegant Party Candles
Low lights and candlelight can transform an ordinary room into a chic and festive party venue. There is no such thing as too much twinkle at any party so the more candles, tea-lights and votives, the better.

Most venues supply tea-lights and holders but if yours does not, consider purchasing some. The play of light makes a difference. Place at least three on each table

Elegant Napkin Rings
How you deal with your napkin will depend on what you choose to do for place cards and party favors. One option is to simply skip the napkin rings altogether. Instead use flowers as napkin decor. Just fold your napkin beautifully and place a flower in the pocket.

Elegant Party Favors
An elegant event lends itself to so many options, Party Idea Pros could not choose just one best option, so here are a few choices we call the best of the best … One more thought — party favors can double as place cards when combined with a place card tag or can be used as small tokens of thanks when a thank you tag is attached.
