PartySlate’s Top 10 Instagrams of 2021

What do A-list celebrities, fruit-shaped florals, and selfie cocktails have in common? They all topped our most-liked Instagrams of 2021 (some more than once). The PartySlate team has their own favorite events from the year, party trends to obsess over, and designs we’ll never forget — but according to you, these are the best photos from 2021. 

A year in review wouldn’t be complete without a look back on the most-like post on PartySlate’s Instagram — a place where you get to be the judge. You spoke, we listened, and this year’s top 10 photos are filled with fun catering trends, creative details, completely unique weddings, and (un-surprisedly) Instagram-worthy photo ops.
