Revelry. Everywhere. Everyday. We believe in living a lifestyle of celebration. Taking up our stashes of confetti making today special. Baking cakes just because they taste good, and because that cake stand is too damn pretty to be sitting in the cabinet! Enjoying every moment. Because REVELRY is waiting for you everywhere, you only have to create it. Welcome to the party.

We love to talk about cakes + balloons + garland + easy party hacks & making every holiday more festive!



Making parties more awesome one chat at a time.




A Subtle Revelry has been voted one of Babbles 50 best design blogs for moms. We’ve recently been featured in Inside Out Magazine, The Today Show, Better Homes & Gardens, Living Etc., Martha Stewrt, Home Beautiful, Good Housekeeping, Elle Decor, Artful Blogging and Family Fun magazine.


A Subtle Revelry the magazine was created in 2011, because I am crazy and thought this little blog, just couldn’t hold everything I wanted to share. I like to think of it as the art of merrymaking in editorial form!

Our first book, Materially Crafted, is a passion project of mine – think of it as your crafting bible.

I am Victoria, I am a mom to twins who are almost 5! I’m married to my best friend and college sweetheart. He’s also my editor and self-titled V.P. of Common Sense – which I definitely need because left to my own I do crazy things, like hanging cakes up in a tree! I have a huge passion for finding Revelry in the everyday, because life can be hard and every day deserves a celebration.

This is how we teach our kids dinner party manners if you’d like to see.

Athena is a freelance photographer currently living in southern Italy with her family. She’s a decent baker, terrible cook, and collector of kitschy things (sometimes). She likes to plan “runcations” and hopes to grow her Starbucks mug collection while traveling through Europe the next three years.

Brie Zacher


Brie Zacher catalogs her favorite projects and posts anything she’s passionate about on her blog. Her brain usually has way too many project tabs open at once, and she loves doing anything that deals with DIY crafts, parties, yummy food, paper making, decor, design, and really good photography. Brie currently resides in Ogden, Utah and has been married for 5 years now to a good look’n hunk, whom she gave her number to at a bakery (written on a PB&J sandwich). So cute! She also love Dr. Pepper and chocolate cupcakes.

Do you and your husband the same birthday?

Why I thought you’d never ask! What a normal question. Yes we do! Hence the always combined celebrations. We were actually born in the same hospital within 1/2 an hour of each other – nursery date! We met for the first time in college and married a week after graduation. How’s that for a soulmate! Also, we rented out a Starbucks for our wedding, the best idea ever – you can totally steal it, I won’t tell.

Do you get paid to write posts on this site?

Yes, sometimes. I have a handful of wonderful partners I work with to promote their products – it funds the projects and work I do here daily. To learn more about partnering with us – see here. View my complete advertising and privacy policy – right here.

OMG you have twins? So do I!


This is honestly the title of hundreds of emails I’ve received over the years. Yes, we have twins. No, they do not run in my family. Here’s a quick recap of our experience with IVF, if you are interested. Yes, the first year was brutal – although now I think I have it easier. They are my absolute treasures.

Can I work for A Subtle Revelry?

One of my favorite parts of running this site is the staff team I get to work with. I am always looking to add new talent to the mix! If you are interested in joining up as a contributor email with a link to your site or portfolio and I’ll check it out.

Can you teach me how to grow my blog, make money blogging, or start a new blog?

It was because of all the emails I’ve received that I initially began giving personalized business consultations. It’s a great option if you are interested in launching, growing, or monatizing a blogging site. I share lots of juicy details about our process and the triumphs and trials of building a profitable blog. I also write monthly posts here about blogging, and how it’s a lot like dieting.

Can I post your photos & ideas?

Thanks for asking – I’m flattered, really! Having friendly sites feature my work is a HUGE way we’ve grown this site and I am always thankful for a kind mention. Since all the work on this site is protected by copyright, I do have a few rules: Please only feature one photo from any post or project – I do not allow a complete project to be reposted anywhere, anytime. Please always link back to the original article here on my site whenever a photo/idea is run and please always credit the project designer and photographer in your feature. Thanks!

How do I get a book deal?

Getting our first book deal was a surreal experience and I’ve been learning so much in the process! Here are my tips for landing your own book deal – or anything else you want in life, a little bit about my production process and of course you can grab the book right here.

Hey! Want email and say Hi, Help, or Hooray!?!
