Oui Party's Best of 2017 Round-Up

2017 was the first full-year Oui worked together to create the parties of our dreams. We went through all of them, and there were many (link to press section), and rounded-up our favorites. Come to think of it, we may just have to make a calendar out of ‘em! 

“I love an elevated take on a casual gathering, like a Superbowl Sunday party, so adding florals to football was right up my alley. Using balloons for a backdrop is always a fun way to add dimension, the stripes reminded us of the umpire’s uniform. Go team!” Rachel


“If I could add a pop of pink into every party palette I would be on cloud nine! So, naturally, pink cotton candy from Sugar Bouffant was the perfect touch for this Valentine’s Day soiree.” Royale

“This was the first time we had Earthbaby Flowers do an ombré rainbow arrangement and I haven’t been able to get over it ever since. It’s still my go-to any time I want to add a bit of playfulness to an arrangement—it works for a variety of themes; unicorn, rainbow, My Little Pony, even St. Patrick’s Day!” Rachel


“Finding the picture perfect location for a celebration is something I live for. Baby Bea’s Bakeshop could not have been a better place for this Easter bunny bake date. The coral stripped awning was just screaming for a balloon installation, and we listened!” Royale 


“I’m obsessed with the nontraditional use of pastels for a holiday like Cinco de Mayo, especially in those piñata‘s Lula Flora made; she always nails it with her color choices! And the fringe chandelier is bomb!” Rachel

“So, this Cars 3 party was extra special because it was for my son Stellan’s third birthday. His favorite color is red (my least favorite) thanks to Lightning McQueen, so this space worked seamlessly with the theme. The white wall tire donuts are one of my favorite treat details ever!” Royale

“I usually don’t go for primary colors, but there’s no better time to use them than Fourth of July! Add a winky-face on a red balloon and I’m in!” Rachel


“This balloon animal bash was just as FUN to style as it looks. Sometimes all a primary-colored party needs is a twist—or a twisting balloon.” Royale

“The heat was not on our side for this Palm Springs bachelorette brunch, but the textures and the colors of the treats made our mouths feel like they were on vacation. You can never go wrong with a pool float as decor on a hot day!” Rachel


“Halloween is my absolute favorite holiday and so I really wanted to blow it out, and what better way to do that than with a room full of balloons? Blacks and deep reds are not colors we see often in balloon installations, so we had great fun playing with those darker colors.” Royale


“The food was the star in this Friendsgiving spread, it was more than we could wish for actually. Get it? Wish—wishbone, like the decor we used. I can be such a ham turkey sometimes.” Rachel

“If you’re not obsessed with Peggy Porschen, you must not be on Instagram! Her holiday doorway installations give me life. So, for Christmas we wrapped up Bonjour Fete’s pink door in pastel perfection—we even popped real fairy floss into the garland.” Royale
