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:

Sophisticated Blush, Gold, and White Gala with Crystal Accents

What comes to mind with you think “black tie gala”? Is it the gowns, the champagne, or the socializing? Do you ever think of associating the color blush in a fundraiser or gala setting?

It’s easy to disassociate the two, as blush is a popular choice for weddings year round; however I think it’s worth exploring that soft shade of pink in the gala setting. Used sparingly and carefully, blush can add a sense of life and freshness into an environment that is often a little stiff. Below I’ve curated a few of my favorite inspiration pictures that I believe would be a great start to a sophisticated blush, gold, and white gala with crystal accents. The crystal chandeliers and candelabras make the event so refined, but it’s the subtle blush napkins or rose accents that help soften this design. Where I think this concept really shines is its ability to translate into an after party space or lounge on the lawn. The greenery in the grass only enhances the neutral color palette, enhancing the look further.

Would this look work for any fundraiser or gala? Certainly not! But for the right group with a focus on appealing to its female guests, this ideas board could be the perfect beginning to a lovely and elegant evening. Here’s what I had in mind:
