Golden Pineapple – Summer Party Ideas

What a colorful summer it’s been, here on the blog! I’ve been loving the combination of vibrant summery hues with strong golds lately. If you were to take a look at some of my most recent posts, you’d see all the color I’ve been incorporating in all sorts of interesting elements for each event.

This week I thought I would combine gold (in the form of golden pineapples) with bold summer hues, with a touch of elegance by incorporating black and white stripes. While it sounds like a lot, I actually think the trio is quite impressive together. There’s something about each of these elements that balances the other out, so as to not let any one element overly dominate the design. This themed party could be used for summer wedding receptions, birthday parties, or even just a fun night with friends and family. Lots of great options!

Since I could probably go on and on about how intriguing I find incorporating golden pineapples as party décor, I’d rather have you see what I had in mind. Here’s what I’m thinking for this week’s party idea board:

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:

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:
