Feminine Soiree in Blush and White – Event Decor Ideas

It’s the simple things sometimes that make events great. A good color combination. A fantastic live band. Amazing food served to perfection. I often think that it’s the event decor and concept behind the event that makes it not just memorable, but enjoyable.

Now I’m not saying you have to go all out themed to the max or anything. But a little thought and a little planning go a long way, For example, a few weeks ago I shared this sophisticated blush and gold decor ideas board, perfect for any number of events. It’s traditional, elegant, sophisticated. It looks like it is a higher end event, not because of the blush pink, white, and gold. No, it looks so refined because of the strategic use of items and shapes combined.

Using those same colors: blush pink, white, and gold- I am able to create many feels to an event. For example, the board below is the same color combination, but with a modern flair, with an emphasis on feminine softness to it. Here’s what I had in mind for this take on a feminine soiree in blush and white:

Race to the Finish Line – Racing Inspired Reception Ideas

This is getting out of control! A few weeks ago I shared an inspiration board on a fun, vintage feeling classic cars party. A few weeks before that, a party inspired by a mechanics garage. This week? A high end – race to the finish line racing inspired reception ideas. Will this trend end? I don’t know!

Part of it, or at least part of what I’m chalking it up to, is Pinterest’s ability to integrate things you have searched for into your feed, because you’ve clearly shown interest in it. Maybe all these ideas have been subconsciously making me want to keep curating car themed parties? I suppose we will never know. Don’t worry, I’ve been pinning all of my favorite classic car, race car, monster truck, NASCAR party ideas all on THIS board.

For this “race to the finish line” party ideas board, I really wanted to keep it modern and more traditional racing, which is why you see lots of red with the classic white and black checkers. To keep it feeling modern, I made sure the lounge groupings and furniture set ups had that nice clean look with the texture in the metal, with a pretty sweet metal bar.

Here’s what I had in mind:

Classic Cars of the 50’s Party Ideas

This week we are taking it back to the fifties, party people! That’s right, a classic cruisers of the 50’s party ideas board awaits you!

A few weeks ago when I was working on my mechanic’s garage car themed party, I stumbled onto a ton of fantastic car related decor, for all sorts of different styles. Now, of course I pinned my favorites to my car and racing party ideas board on Pinterest, but I save a few just for this week’s classic car themed party.

Amazingly, I happened to have stumbled onto a venue that actually looks like a classic garage already – complete with cars! From there I built up the rest of the classic cars party decor ideas that would complement the space, without being too distracting. To me, the 50s era for party decoration was not as layered and intense as some of today’s modern parties, and with that I think it’s important to try and reflect that in the event decor, even if it is all hypothetical! That’s why there is a lot of simple white linens and flowers, with a few colorful accents here and there. Let the classic cruiser cars be the highlight, I say! Let the cars shine and the music play, as they will do more for setting the mood then any flower arrangement or tablecloth will. Here’s what I had in mind:

Colorful Wildflower Party Ideas

Normally I try to have a really thoughtful and heavily themed party decor ideas board to share with you. But this week, I don’t! I’m just so inspired by these colorful and free flowing wildflower elements I’ve found lately, that they really don’t NEED to be in some themed event. They ARE the theme. Having big arrangements of long stem wild flowers with lots of greenery but with every color of the rainbow involved, makes it such an eye catching and energy infused event, whatever the event is for.

To me, this colorful wildflower party ideas board gives off this boho glam garden party. No one is really sitting on the floor, maybe there is one of those beautiful white tents on a lawn, but there is also no formal tea service and scones getting handed out by fancy butlers. I could see this working for a lovely daytime wedding, baby or bridal showers, or maybe even a fundraiser luncheon.

Enough dreaming up in the clouds, let’s take a look at this colorful wildflower party decor ideas board:

Navy Blue and Sunshine Yellow Summer Soiree Ideas

Some things just go together, like chocolate and peanut butter, or salt and pepper. In a not so foody sense, so does blue and yellow. One of my most favorite color combinations for the summer in blue and yellow, because I find that it tends to be greatly underused. It can be feminine or masculine, formal or informal, but still retain a quality to it that makes it appropriate to be used for guests of honor of all ages. It’s all about how you incorporate the colors!

Texture is always at the top of my mind when I am putting together this party idea boards, so when I was dreaming up this navy blue and sunshine yellow summer soiree ideas board, it was important to me to figure out where the texture and dimension would be. For this particular event, I opted to have the smaller scale texture double as the yellow, as lots of fresh sunshine yellow flowers are used to run down the table and make perfect centerpieces and room decor. To help create a larger sense of texture, but also integrate the navy blue, I decided to use oversized tissue paper pompoms that included yellow, navy blue, but also some neutrals such as gray and white via additional paper lanterns.

With such a colorful table full of contrast, and a well decorated dessert spread, it’s easy to host this summer soiree party, without it looking too nautical or themed. Here’s what I had in mind for this navy blue and sunshine yellow summer soiree:

Disco Ball Party Decor

You know how sometimes, people say “Let’s host a summer luau party” and a lot of the time the initial reaction is “EEEHHHH” because it’s been SO commercialized and become less and less authentic, and incredibly predicable and cheesy? I think the poor disco ball has also waltzed into that arena. It’s hard to work with disco balls and make them look high end. The proportions, proper lighting, and necessary ambiance needed to really pull them off is hard to do. Then there are the other questions that come up, such as what type of party is this? Is it a neon party themed? Or just disco balls? Can you even use disco balls without other decor?

This week I’ve put together a disco ball party decor ideas board to help navigate and inspire your inner decorator. I think the key is to work with lots of quantities, you can’t just have one big disco ball over the dance floor, and to work with lots of different sizes. There is a reason people are fascinated with the disco ball; it’s just so shiny! So to keep the focus where it should be, I’ve opted to make the focal “color”, if you will, white. It’s not really a focus, but it’s what everyone else will be seeing in the areas not touched by the disco ball decor. Plus, white is an excellent background to make the disco ball effects pop on!

Here’s what I had in mind for my disco ball party decor:

Colorful Streamers and Ribbons Party Ideas

Is it too much to ask for a summertime party that is colorful, doesn’t look cheesy, and also doesn’t cost a fortune? I don’t think so! While it’s easy to get swept up in beautiful tropical oasis soirees and exotic paradise island themed parties with all the inspiration on Pinterest, it’s important to remember that you don’t have to have all those specialty plants and decor to make a summertime party that wows. With some imagination, ribbon, streamers, and some string lights, you can create colorful party decor without it looking cheap or overdone. Here’s some ideas to get you started:

Colorful Streamers and Ribbons Party Ideas

Some of the key takeaways for this colorful streamers and ribbons party ideas board would be:

  • Keep your color range in the same hues – so do all warm colors, or all pastels, just don’t mix them together!
  • Length is key! Make sure you play with proportions and height for optimal impact.
  • Think about where there is movement. The great thing about using streamers and ribbon is they have natural fluid movement. Use that to your advantage with perimeter decor, hanging from trees, etc., and be careful of too much movement in traffic areas such as the entrance.
