I’m not saying this because green is my favorite color, I’m saying it because it’s true: green is an amazing color. Not just for events, though that is true too, but for all sorts of decor. Green is one of those few colors that is good year round, any season. It’s welcomed at just about every holiday, from a lively bright green to a dark and rich emerald green. It can soften and lighten a room, or intensify and enrich the space it is in. Shades of green have such a wide range of effects, it’s no wonder that green is always in style and often used at events.
This week I thought I would try to re-envision on of my earliest party idea boards, still found on my other blog, A Sparkly Life for Me (you can see the original idea board HERE). Partially inducing excitement, and the other part a bit of cringing (why the need for balloons?!), I like to look back and see what fresh new twists I could come up with on previous concepts. Plus, I think I’m on a green kick at the moment!
I thought I’d start with keeping that brilliant emerald green and gold concept from my original challenge, transforming it into a manicured garden soiree, still elevated, still formal, but with the emphasis on the emerald green. The gold, now with mirrors, would be subtle but well placed in strategic points throughout the decor. Boxwood hedges, cubes, arrangements, and topiary would be the defining decor at this event.
Here’s what I had in mind for this manicured garden party decor:
