Savannah Soiree

We're in the Midwest...but that didn't keep us from putting on a house party that was pure Savannah Style!  


When these napkins caught our eye, we knew we had to build a look around them!

The bold pattern was the perfect way to set off our favorite Spode dishware.  Vintage 1940s silverplate accents & a rustic charger completed the look.

A Classic Party Rental provided the White Belize Linens, peach satin high-tops, pure white Chiavari chairs, and vintage-feel Preludio stemware.

Inspiration: Vintage

What's better for a 90 degree day than a custom-designed fan? We drew from the linens, dishware, and Georgia peaches to create these double-sided fans, which also served as dinner menus.  We tied vintage-style handkerchiefs around the handle to keep guests' hands cool & dry.  A custom banner, finished with the same vintage handkerchiefs, welcomed guests to the party.

Custom Paper

For a deep-south party, only comfort food could possibly do!  We selected local caterer Chef Dan to whip up a feast that left guests asking for thirds.  When we help our clients select the perfect caterer, we consider theme, costs, and the caterer's history and adaptability.  

Southern Fare

When we design an event, we read the venue this case, a private home.  The existing backdrop, with a columned veranda, antique fountain, and mossy brick courtyard, was a one-hundred percent match for a Savannah-style party.  Don't have a venue that meshes with the style you want?  Miracles can happen with proper staging - and we can help you make it happen!

The Setting

We have A LOT of pieces in our collection of vintage, antique, and FUN party goods.  This gold frame is one of our favorites...We coordinated the signage with the rest of the party pieces for a photo backdrop/accent piece.  It's the little things that set Invited apart from other party planners...we even compiled a custom Georgia-themed music playlist to get guests in the spirit. All five senses are engaged at every event...and we make sure we appeal to
all of them!

The icing


Although we tailored the party to the Southern-style space, there were still some....shall we say....warts to cover.  This end of the veranda was blank siding when we started...and it was uninspiring! We pulled some treasures from our extensive inventory, including a pair of straw-look armchairs to make this area pop.  It also served as a wine & beverage station, as well as a focal point, and extra cocktail seating.
