Modern Industrial Event Decor

This week I am channeling a modern industrial event decor theme with perfect pops of bright orange mixed in for freshness. Cool grays mixed with sleek metal finishes, dusted with slight touches of textures from concrete, garnished with a few pops of bright orange combine to create a soft but masculine event decor concept, sure to please many attendee’s senses.

The high impact piece of this modern industrial event decor, is the entrance. An orange carpet is eye catching, and different. But it’s the length, perfectly edged with silver metal lanterns and coordinating balloons that really make it a statement piece. Mixing gray furniture, with metal textures and accents keeps the event fairly gender neutral and subtle, so the focus could be on the entertainment or other activities going on throughout the event. Fresh floral should be kept to a minimum, so the focus of the decor is towards the clean and curated furniture and displays, and not the arrangements. Having well thought out and strategically placed pops of color will far outshine any arrangement that would be used at this event.

With this particular style of modern industrial event decor, I think it would be well worth the money to spend some time developing unique buffet tables and food displays, such as the French fry tower, or the cubic based salad bar shared in this week’s inspiration board.

Here’s what I had in mind for this modern industrial event decor with pops of orange:

Farmers Market Themed Luncheon Ideas

Looking for the perfect theme for an upcoming luncheon? Be it a thank you lunch, annual meeting, or even a fundraiser – don’t overlook the theme and decor of your event! It is so easy to be underwhelmed at luncheons, due to their perceived limits of timing. In all reality, if it’s noon or 8 in the evening, a ballroom will often look the same, if it’s a standard no-window room. There are a lot of creative ways to bring a farmers market themed luncheon to life, indoors or outdoors. This week, I will be focusing on an outdoor take to hosting a farmer’s market themed luncheon.

Ideally, for hosting this event outdoors, you would have a nice lush green space, the grass would be coming up, and there would be plenty of natural foliage and growth in the area. So picture that as we move forward. Here’s what I had in mind for this week’s party theme and idea board:

Modern Blue Pumpkin Thanksgiving Decor Ideas – in Light Blue and Navy Blue

With Halloween just behind us, and Thanksgiving just a few short weeks away, it’s time to start thinking about what your Thanksgiving dinner is going to look like. If you are looking to mix up the traditional rustic orange color palette and go for something more modern, you’ll love the Thanksgiving party decor idea board I have put together for this week. Shades of light blue, mixed with a dark navy blue and hints of taupe and ivory combine to create this modern Thanksgiving dinner styling. To me, having lots of pumpkins in various sizes and colors help make this a cohesive look. I’d love to see the buffet have a few pops of blue or a gentle metallic accent, perhaps in the plates. To add just a touch of freshness, the pumpkin succulent planters have been incorporated. A fun dessert display is always in good taste, and this hanging dessert buffet stays within the color palette, but brings that modern touch with its clean lines. Beyond Thanksgiving, this is a great concept for transitioning from the end of summer into the fall season.

Here’s what I had in mind:

Ideas for National Chocolate Cake Day for Two….with wine.

What are the odds, that not only is today both Wine Wednesday AND National Chocolate Cake Day? As if we needed a reason to consume either! This year they both line up perfectly into one glorious day. Maybe it’s because it’s getting close to Valentine’s Day, or maybe I’m a fan of date nights that involve a good red wine and a luscious cake, but I feel like this week’s idea board should be an ever-so-lightly romantic evening for two. And you guessed it: chocolate cake and wine are on the menu. Here’s what I had in mind:

Ideas for National Chocolate Cake Day for Two….with wine.

Don’t you think that card is adorable? How cute would it be to write a little love note and ask if your other half will join you for a little wine and chocolate and mail it to them? I would be thrilled to get that in the mail! Here’s where I found all of these great images for this week’s inspiration:

Dinner Party Menu: Baked Scallops and Roasted Potatoes

So guess what? Tomorrow is apparently National Baked Scallops Day. Who knew that was a thing?

I’m from Florida, so I know the deliciousness to be savored when feasting on fresh seafood. I couldn’t resist putting together a scrumptious dinner party menu for this week’s inspiration board. And no party of mine is complete unless there’s wine!

Wine and Cheese Birthday Party Ideas

Happy Birthday toooooo youuuuu!

Ok, well maybe it is not ACTUALLY your birthday. Yet. That doesn’t mean you can’t start dropping hints now! This week’s party inspiration is all about wine and cheese, and how you can turn them into an entire birthday bash.

This party is perfect for foodies, or people you want to throw a surprise bash for, but know they won’t really like.

Key elements for this event:

  • Tons of selection – this goes for wine AND cheeses! Don’t just get what you like, everyone’s gotta eat!
  • Other options – not everything can be wine and cheese, there is always someone who doesn’t like it, and see above about selection.
  • Light music – this is going to be a mix and mingle event (more than likely) so don’t let there be any awkward silence. Pandora can help you find some light background music if you need a last minute fix.

If you are looking for pairing ideas or just a lite of basic wines and cheeses to choose from, check out my board on Pinterest devoted specifically to Wine & Cheese Parties. I’ve got several good charts and infographics that will likely help you out when deciding what to pick up.

Oh, and make sure to check out where I got all of these lovely images:
