Remember Grace Nuth‘s celestial party how-to in our winter issue? Well, reader Meg Eubank and her starry friends threw a celestial party of their own and Meg sent in this story and these photos from the event (the photos were taken by Meg and Roland Kaelin).
How lovely is this?
“We are a group of fae friends and subscribers to Enchanted Living who held a celestial gathering inspired by Grace Nuth’s party in the latest issue of the magazine. We emulated her table decorations by hanging draping fabric from a faerie lantern above the table, which we covered in a star-covered cloth. On top of the table, we scattered cards representing each of the astrological signs that guests could take home with them.”
“We cut out stars from craft paper for decorations and hung lights everywhere around the house to make it seem like we were among the stars. Most of our decor was made from items we purchased on sale at craft stores or from the thrift store. We told our guests to “come attired in the garments of the stars,” as the celestial party in the magazine had. We set up a photo station in the basement that included a backdrop of lights to look like stars, hanging lanterns, and props, where we shot photos of each other.”
“The outfits were stunning – in the photos, you will see Bianca attired in a vintage gown purchased from Velvet Moon Boutique, faerie wings from Wild Plum Boutique, and crown purchased from a vendor at Faeriecon. Kristin was attired in her own designs from her ‘Faultlines’ Kristin Costa Designs fashion line (she is a fashion designer in New York). JaQuinley and Jose made their own illuminated costumes, and Laura put hers together from a variety of items that reminded her of the moon, including an iridescent corset from Passionale. Meg wore faerie wings by Zakit and a crescent moon crown by Thyme2Dream, along with a thrift store dress and accessories.
We had a magical time and can’t wait to hold our next themed party inspired by the pages of Enchanted Living!”
