Taylor Swift was so driven and determined that she moved to Nashville at 14 years old to pursue her music career. Two years later, at 16, her debut album set a course for a successful music career. Inspired by the women of country music and her former opera singer grandmother, Swift’s passion is evident in her lyrics. We’re calling all Swifties to grab their friends, put the playlist on shuffle, and enjoy the music together. If your favorite album is her Debut, this one is for you.
Debut the Tablescape
Create an atmosphere that sets the mood for a Taylor Swift-theme fete. The Jungle Oasis box from Yellow Bliss Co. perfectly encapsulates Taylor’s debut. Pulling colors from her album cover, the charger plates are inspired by the leaves and water in the background.
Finish with a blue tablecloth to bring in more water elements and butterfly confetti. Fresh flowers in the center of the table will add a beautiful live element. The tropical and animal print motifs in the Jungle Oasis box evoke the nostalgia and vibrant feeling we get when listening to Taylor Swift’s debut album.
Food and Drinks
The debut album is heavily inspired by country music, so it’s the perfect opportunity to go all-in on the southern country favorites. For drinks, classic country sweet tea and Meyer lemon lemonade will be a hit. And if you’re looking to serve a cocktail, something blueberry with Tennessee whiskey is perfectly on theme.
As for food, you can’t go wrong with Nashville hot chicken and waffle bites. And Memphis barbecue is a must. Mac and cheese and fried pickles on the side. Finish with a sweet Tennesee moon pie or a Tennessee Mountain apple stack cake.
Decorations and Attire
Lean into the country theme and decorate the party with motifs cowgirl boots and acoustic guitars. You can also bring in butterflies to tie it back to the album cover. Paper flowers and butterflies will make great wall decorations.
Set the dress code as Debut chic. Come in flowy boho dresses and cowgirl boots. Delicate floral shirts with denim skirts or jeans also make a great option. Again, use butterflies as accents with either earrings, hair clips, or necklaces.
Blast the Music
Of course, all the songs from the Debut album are on the playlist for this party. But you can also lean into the poppy country music feel of the album for similar songs. Mix some Shania Twain, Faith Hill, and Dolly Parton on the playlist, some of Taylor Swift’s biggest influences. Throw some current country pop from Maren Morris, Megan Moroney, and Kacey Musgraves to complete the playlist.
