Throw a Glamorous Bash with These Glitter Party Ideas

Glam up any occasion with our Glitter Party Idea. Take your party to the next level by jazzing up dessert with edible glitter stars and cupcake flags!

This month we're falling in love all over again -- with glitter!

As kids we crafted like crazy with glitter, but as adults it was hard to get excited for the stuff since it always seemed to come with a mess to clean up. After seeing how big glitter has grown as a trend though, and all the fun you really can have with it, we decided it was time to fall back in love with the sparkly dust.

A little glitz and glam can go a long way - guests will feel fabulous taking a bite out of one of these glamorous dessert ideas!


  • Glitter isn't just for crafts anymore! We discovered this edible star glitter and had so much fun with it we had to pack a container in each Crate.

    After dipping an assortment of treats into chocolate, we sprinkled with glitter to achieve a real sparkle. For cocktails, we rimmed glasses and also made some yummy Champagne Jell-O shots with the stars mixed in.

  • Edible glitter isn't the only way to add sparkle to treats, though. Mini treat toppers are a huge trend and these gold glitter cupcake flags from Penelope & La La are almost too cute for words. We're such fans of this little shop and all their handmade creations!

  • When we first started playing with our glitter set from American Crafts we used the traditional apply Mod Podge, cover in glitter approach on a couple of martini glasses' bases and a piece of cardstock we slipped into a frame for an easy and inexpensive party decoration.

  • Then we discovered if we combined the glitter with the Mod Podge glue we had a real winning combo on hand! There was no stopping us from glitterizing everything we possibly could once we mixed the two and created Mod Podge glitter paint.

  • We turned glass mason jars into glitzy vases...

  • And candles into extra sparkly decor!
