Wine Glass Painting Party Ideas {for National Wine Day}

In honor of National Wine Day, May 25, I present to you this party idea and inspiration board, full of wine themed party décor. I envision this party theme being used for a birthday party, or perhaps a bachelorette party, where lots of wine is enjoyed, and there is plenty of good spirited company around to celebrate with. A wine glass painting party should be in a comfortable area, where people are free to roam about and mingle as their work is drying, and they can nibble on finger foods as they walk about and enjoy the creation of their fellow guests.

For this wine glass painting party, here’s what I had in mind:

A Gilded Botanical Wedding

We’re doing it up like Midas today! Roses dipped in gold, garlands of gold bay leaves, centerpieces featuring gold garlands over crystal….the list of gold elements in this week’s wedding idea board is quite long. But don’t worry! I’ve included all the links below to the sites where each of these images were found.

The inspiration for this week’s wedding idea board actually came about when I was looking at my “Unusual and Unique Wedding Bouquet” board on Pinterest working on last week’s inspiration board. (If you missed that inspiration board, it’s a fun and modern tropical beach wedding. Go see it here.) I had been browsing through that board and saw it. A bouquet of golden roses. Over the top but completely fabulous. I knew I had to do something with it.

After thinking about it a little more, and looking back at some of the other posts I did with gold, I wanted to try something different. Botanical elements kept catching my eye, so I opted to feature lots of different types of gold leafs and foliage elements.

Here’s what I had in mind:

A Modern Tropical Beach Wedding in Orange

Would you say “I do,” on the beach?

Come get away with me today! We’re going to the beach for a fabulous destination wedding, with a modern vibe and LOTS of vibrant orange accents. All the traditional elements of a beach or destination wedding are included in this week’s wedding idea board, just with more of a modern twist. I opted for a perfect shade of orange that pairs well with the tropical foliage leaves that I’m including sparingly on the tables. Adding dark wood elements on the tables helps to ground the wedding decor, and helps keep it from getting too south beach colorful. Maybe another week!

It’s not a destination wedding to me if there isn’t an abundance of tropical flowers! This week, I’ve made sure to include a variety of flowers with all sorts of different shapes, sizes, and colors. The simple but modern arrangements are all so different, but still highlight the textures and natural beauty of each flower’s natural shape.

Eclectic and Colorful Mother’s Day Party Ideas

Bright and bold, full of sunny colors and vibrant accents, this week’s party idea board is the perfect eclectic mix to celebrate mother’s day this year. Mixed florals and textures combine to create this color heavy summery party inspiration board while still looking cohesive and put together.

The balance is in the black and white accents you see here and there. The white table highlights the bright floral centerpieces, while a black and white background helps amplify the fresh flowers in their summer shades. The flat black and white elements really work well together to help make the mix of textures and colors stand out.

Here’s what I had in mind:

Golf Partee Party Ideas

Do I have any golfers here? How about anyone who needs a father’s day party idea? You’re going to want to pin this week’s party idea board for future reference!

This week’s party idea board is more of a partee than a party! With father’s day around the corner, it’s time to start planning something special for the special guy in your life. Now you know I love a good themed event, but I’m a sucker for unconventional materials, and you know there’s nothing more un-traditional for event décor then golf balls and AstroTurf.

It’s amazing how these two simple materials with a few tees can be used in escort cards, centerpieces, place settings, and event décor. This week I put together a golf party idea board for you with some of my favorite ideas. Here’s what I had in mind:

Rustic Sunflower and Navy Country Sunset Reception

“Never look directly at the sun. Instead, look at the sunflower.” This quote resonates seamlessly with this week’s wedding and party idea board. Picture a rustic country soiree, with lots of lanterns filled with candles, and vibrant sunflowers everywhere you look. Hints of navy help balance out the bright yellows in the sunflowers, and add pops of color to the rustic elements.

I’d love to see this summer celebration take place outside on a beautiful country property, perhaps with rolling hills and a vintage barn a little off in the distance.  If you felt so compelled to, this party idea board could easily transform into a rustic country wedding filled with the same sunflowers and navy blue elements. A natural branch altar adorned with sunflowers and navy ribbons would be all you need to add. And I’ll be the first to say I’m not normally one to choose country anything, but sunflowers have always been a favorite of mine. They have such a happy energy that they seem to radiate out, naturally making them the perfect flower to be at the center of this event design. I can only imagine what the ambiance would be like after the sun sets, as the candles are all flickering and enhancing the glow of the sunflowers that are everywhere you look. I bet it would be magical!

Modern White Orchid Outdoor Wedding Ideas

Are you a fan of modern or classic event décor?

I hope both! This week’s wedding idea board is all about modern. Some of the phrases I would use to describe this event décor would be: Clean shapes. Bright white. Modern elegance.Those are the inspiration words for this week’s wedding inspiration board.

This modern white orchid idea board would be perfect for an outdoor wedding this summer. Orchids generally hold up well in most temperatures, and their clean lines really feed into this modern styling.

The pops of green floral here and there help add a bit of color, while their unusual uses and shapes help add depth and dimension to this event. I opted for several unusual centerpieces, because I like to have several interesting pieces in my design. It helps keep the eye interested and wandering to discover the next stimulating element in the event décor.
