Moonlight Masquerade Ball in Black, Purple, and Silver

There’s never a dull moment in life, and there is always a reason to celebrate. With fall right around the corner, I thought I would take this week as an opportunity to do something different for the season. While I’m no serious fan of Halloween (gore is just too over done for my liking), I do like the idea of a thrilling dress up party, and so why not have a marvelous moonlight masquerade ball?

Now, it’s important to note that this is not just any masquerade ball. No, this is a moonlight masquerade ball. It’s darker, a bit mysterious, and a heck of a lot more dramatic. On any given day when you google “masquerade party” or any variation, the go-to images that come up are gold, green, purple the majority of the time. While that is a great combination, with a warm and inviting sense to it, I think it’s over done. So to mix things up, I’ve created a masquerade ball idea board in black, purple, and silver.

Here’s what I have in mind:

Vineyard Wedding in Shades of Plum

How many states do you know that has world class beaches, shopping, amusement parks, AND vineyards? Not too many states coming to mind, do they? Here in Florida we are lucky to have all of those, and so much more. People often forget that we have a number of great wineries here, perfect for an end of summer wedding. This week, I channeled the beauty of wineries from around the world, with shades of plum purples, to create this week’s vineyard wedding idea board. Here’s what I had in mind:

Asian Infused Wedding in Red

It’s not too often I find myself designing concept boards based specifically around a cultural theme, but this week I was overwhelmingly inspired by the tablescape you’ll see below. The red and gold paper lanterns with an array of fresh flowers on the table caught my eye. After more digging into similar looks, I found myself disappointed in the number of higher end weddings that incorporated these beautiful red paper lanterns. With that in mind I challenged myself to create this Asian influenced wedding in red, featuring beautiful paper lanterns that looked luxurious and opulent, and less crafty.

Here’s what I created for this week’s Asian inspired wedding in red:

Tropical Backyard Engagement Party

Are you the first person to toast to a good time?

I know I try to stay as upbeat and positive as I can, and never really need a reason to celebrate. But when I do, I like to do it in style! Thinking back on engagement party ideas I’ve done in the past, a lot of them seem very…serious. And when I say serious, I don’t mean the parties are happening in the library. No, I mean more along the lines of: the parties seem like more structured events. That are very official, with a specific start and end time. And an MC could direct the event if need be.

Maybe it’s the summertime sunshine that’s gotten into my brain, (or my cup!) but I’d like to see a more laid back, tropical backyard style, out on the patio engagement party. The vibe is relaxed, great music in the background, and of course….. some tiki torches!

Here’s what I had in mind for this tropical backyard engagement party:

Backyard S’mores Party Ideas

It’s crazy to think that the summer is just a few weeks away from being over, and even harder to think about how this time last year, I was designing a party idea board for a backyard movie party under the stars. With today being National S’more’s Day, I thought it would be appropriate to add a new party idea board to our growing collection of summertime celebration themes. Why not combine a movie night under the stars with a s’mores campfire session? Seems like the perfect way to say goodbye to summer.

Here’s what I had in mind for this backyard s’mores party idea board:
