In 2008, the Sex and the City movie was released and millions of viewers witnessed Carrie Bradshaw, played by Sarah Jessica Parker, emerge from  a limousine wearing the Vivienne Westwood wedding dress and a beautiful peacock headpiece.

Seeing this ostentatious headwear on the style icon was enough to set the trend. Even now, four years later, we see girls wearing peacock feather jewelry, home decor and prints on t-shirts and clothing.

I want to help you use this trend to create your own unforgettable party!

Firstly, your invitations should be plain and feature a simple print of a peacock feather, it is classic and bold.

Your invitations should also encourage guests to wear peacock feather accessories! Women can wear shoes, accessories and jewelry featuring the feathers while men can have the feather in their suit pocket!

A peacock feather theme offers a beautiful colour scheme to work with; you have the option to use real feathers, prints of feathers or merely the colours. I like the idea of having decorations and tableware in green, blue and purple and accessories and additional props that are made from real feathers.

For this party theme, you can be very liberal with your food offerings. Hors d’oeuvres and bite-sized snacks are a great party food because people love to munch while chatting or during breaks from the dance floor! Sweets will never go to waste and can be made to match your theme easily; they can be  extravagant (like the cake below) or simple (like macaroons)!

As always, the music is what gets the party started so here are a few ideas for your playlist!

4. Lights – Ellie Goulding
5. Wild Ones – Sia & Flo Rida
