Today’s guest post is from Kelli Agnich, one of our resident merchandising and DIY experts!
Celebrate February 14th in style by gathering the girls you love for a “Glitter + Girlfriends” soirée!
We’ve collected a few of our favorite DIYs from around the internet and combined them with some great Zazzle products that will set the tone for your sparkly shindig. The best part? Because it’s faux-glitter, your friends won’t be covered in sparkles upon opening their invitations, dusting glitter off their plates, or picking it out of their cupcake frosting!
For a super-fun touch, ask your girlfriends to come dressed in their sparkly best; after all, who doesn’t love an excuse to get dressed to the Nines?
Set the tone for your party before your guests even open their invitation!
From return address labels and custom postage to a glitter sticker seal on the back, show your ladies some love.
Mark it on your calendars, ladies!

Top your cupcakes with custom stickers + toothpicks (that won’t leave glitter in your frosting… ;)

Add to your décor by creating an easy, classy bunting from our custom paper roll. We typed “bunting template” into a popular search engine and had trouble choosing between the traditional triangle, flag and scalloped edge styles, but the bonus of DIY is that you can go with the style of bunting that works best with your décor! Attach the cut-outs to clear thread for a “floating” bunting or to a sparkly gold ribbon for a bolder effect.
For an even easier décor add, simply roll out the paper along the center of your table for an outstanding table runner!
These faux-glitter business cards (we love the “Ultra-Thick” style) are perfect as placecards and as food cards to go in front of each dish along your buffet. Grab your favorite marker and customize your cards!
For a more formal fete, create a menu card for each guest’s place setting.
No party is complete without some additional DIY inspiration! Here are some of our favorites:
