The details of this party are absolutely fabulous… from the fluffy pink peony arrangements and aubergine ruffle placemats (swoon!) to the lovely guests who were all decked out in black & white “Upper East Side Chic” to match the party’s color palette & style!

The invitations were simple & elegant – and we asked all the ladies to dress in black or whites, Upper East Side Chic, and accessorize.

For those that were not as familiar with the Gossip Girl show or “Upper East Side Chic” we showed fashion inspiration boards of what Blaire Waldorf would wear including accessories – especially head bands, handbags, shoes. (Click here to view the inspiration boards.)


When the ladies arrived, they were asked to pick a head band, which also doubled as their party favor. The head bands were of various styles with gems, feathers, embroidery, etc.

The color palette was very Chanel – black & white, with accents of aubergine & pink.

We were deciding between using Casablanca Lilies for the main florals since the Bride’s name is Lily, and also in the show “Lily Bass” loves Casablanca Lillies, or to have Blaire Waldorf’s favorite flowers – peonies.


We ended up going with fluffy pink peonies with containers dressed in a velvety purple wrap & ribbon made to look like a flower.
