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!

Here’s what I had in mind for this summer soiree idea board:
