I have a confession to make. I am obsessed with glitter and I think having a gold glitter themed party would be just awesome. Talk about bringing back your 70's mojo. I am now picturing gold lame shirts and the Bee Gees.
However, as we all know actual Martha Stewart style glitter is extremely messy (unless it's glued to a craft project) and most people would probably call the police if you actually sent them a party invitation with real glitter in the envelope. But that should not stop you from your 70's glam glitter shindig.
Here's a recipe for mixing up the perfect party.
Step 1 - The Invitations
Zazzle has a huge assortment of quality customizable invites that look like glitter. Notice there's no "real" messy glitter which will surely please your guests.
Step 2 - The Party Plates
