Tabletop Tuesday: Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

Tuesday, August 7, 2012

Cyndi Lauper may have immortalized the phrase, but it was a POSH Petite Board Member (Laurel’s adorable daughter Chloe) that reminded us: Girls Just Wanna  Have Fun. Dressing up for 80s Day at school, Chloe’s layered lace, leggings, and teased hair inspired us to change up tabletop Tuesday with a throwback eighties theme. Whether you’re planning for your own posh petite cutie or a fun adult party, this decadent decade provides a dramatic background for your next event. Start with our exclusive Resource One Paris Plaid with black sequin trim linen. It’s reminiscent of vintage eighties Chanel prints, but the sequins take it to a new and fun level. Toss in the modern Onyx glassware, and you’ve got one wonderfully layered and luxe tabletop. For adults, we would suggest adding a few candles for an over-the-top tablescape, but we’re afraid of what could happen with all of that hairspray! Whatever you decide, this is sure to be a tabletop treat that gets guests in the mood.

Who knew the eighties could look so cute? Chloe (left) proves that layers and lace can be a showstopper. Just add a side ponytail and a little bit of attitude and you're all set! The POSH Petite tabletop (right) carries off the theme with aplomb. Rentals: Children's round table with Pink Chiavari Chairs, Paris Plaid linen (Resource One, exclusively ours), Black Acrylic Round Chargers, Pink Polka Dot China, Onyx Glassware, Cupcake Ferris Wheel; all POSH Couture Rentals.

Clockwise from top left: Our Eighties Mood Board. Cyndi Lauper's iconic album, Katy Perry's 80s throwback video ("Last Friday Night"), Molly Ringwald in Pretty in Pink, the ultimate teen - Sarah Jessica Parker as a young Carrie Bradshaw, cult classic Girls Just Want to Have Fun, starring SJP and Helen Hunt. Of course, we couldn't leave out two more stars of the decade: neon bangles and Aqua Net.
