Vibrant Summer Birthday Party Idea for Her

It’s later in the day – the sun is still shining. The guests are starting to arrive, and the music is the background to great conversation. The drinks are cold and the aromas of sensational food are sifting through the air. The mood is light and upbeat, with the sun shining in through the windows. A bottle of champagne is popped and the toasts for the guest of honor start.

That’s the sort of mood I’m envisioning for this week’s inspiration board. I really want something bright. Something up beat. Something high energy with a relaxed undertone. Here’s what I had in mind:

I think this would be a perfect color scheme for a woman’s birthday party this summer, but how else could you see this theme working for? Maybe a bridal shower? A wedding?

Bohemian Patio Party Ideas

I could go for a party this weekend, how about you?

I’m in the mood for a patio party. I don’t actually have a patio for entertaining; much less the patio featured in this week’s inspiration board, but it doesn’t make me not want to throw this party any less. It’s getting warm out here in the evenings, so I’m thinking ice cold cocktails, star lights, great food and summery colors would make for a fun get together. Here’s what I had in mind:

Blue + Gold Agate Wedding Ideas

Refined, but natural. Elegant, but effortless. Those were some of the words I kept in the front of my mind when putting together this week’s idea board. It had to be a wedding, no doubt about that, but it had to be something easy spirited, relaxed even. Having said that, here’s what I ended up with:

Sugary Sweet Pastels + Jelly Beans – Baby Shower Ideas

Ahhhhh yes. The smell of sugar.

You know what I’m talking about. At some point in your life you’ve opened up a bag of your favorite sweet treat and inhaled the sugary scent that was released. And you totally loved it. I would go so far as to say you even had a smile on your face after.

A lot of mommy-to-be ladies out there share a similar smile, for obviously more legitimate reasons – I mean they are making a tiny human after all – but they still are happy and smiling and full of positivity.

Those emotions are what sparked the inspiration for this sugary sweet baby shower inspiration board. Here’s what I had in mind:
