Modern Gold and White Holiday Dinner Party

Are you a fan of modern Christmas decorations? Or do you prefer the more traditional look?

When I saw this beautiful dining room the other day, I just KNEW this week’s inspiration board would be centered on it. It’s beautiful, modern, elegant and simple. All the characteristics I like in a design. I was envisioning a modern holiday dinner party. Here’s what I had in mind:

Champagne, Metallic, and Pearl Wedding Ideas

One of the best sounds at a wedding is the sound of champagne glasses clinking. There’s always a light hearted laugh following and some sort of toasting happening in the background. Just thinking about that inspired today’s wedding inspiration board. I’ve envisioned lots of mixed metallic accents with just enough pearl decoration to bring a sense of sophistication to this wedding, without being too formal.

Honeycomb Summertime Wedding Ideas

A warm summer’s afternoon, with just the slightest breeze in the air, and the sweet smell of fresh honey wafting ever so slightly towards you. That’s the atmosphere I could see this week’s inspiration board thriving in. A bit eclectic. A bit untraditional. A splash of country chic. Those are just a few of the words that come to mind when I try to describe to you what I had in mind for this week’s idea board.

In a perfect word, a rustic farmers market on the edge of the country area with a fresh field of wildflowers would be the location where this celebration would take place. I think a local garden would do just fine too!

It’s Written in the Stars – Astronomy Themed Wedding

A few weeks ago I shared a party idea board for an under the stars backyard movie night. If you missed it, check it out here.

I absolutely loved the theme of the party, and just couldn’t stop thinking about how beautiful a wedding in a science museum or planetarium would be. Something under the stars, but without the bugs and heat. That was all I needed for inspiration – the next thing I knew I had found some fabulous inspirational images and compiled them into this idea board:

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:

Shabby Chic + Light Pink Rose – Spring Wedding Inspiration

Hello lovely ladies!

Today may be just another boring tax day, with lots of black and white, dull and repetitive tasks…… but today is also beautiful day! Or at least beautiful inspiration board day. And that’s the story I’m sticking with.

This week I’m channeling a shabby chic goddess at her spring wedding. Think lots of roses, lots of pink, lots of soft colors and super soft textures. I know you’ve likely been staring at your tax paperwork all night, so let’s just get to the pretty pictures.

Here’s what I’m thinking:

Lingerie Shower in Mint and Gold

Breathe in……breath out!

I always find a nice big breath of fresh air to be so relaxing. And there is something so refreshing and relaxing about mint and gold. That combination is always so fresh to me. This week I used that color combo as the inspiration for this lingerie bridal shower. I love the accents of chevrons and cleverly used polka dots. Here’s what I had in mind:

Navy, Mint, Peach + Gold Bridal Shower

Hello!

This week is all about colors! Not just bright and bold, but those sought after spring tones. I’m lucky to not have any sort of serious winter season here in Florida, but still appreciate spring themed parties. We tend to enjoy the few days out of the year it is not excessively hot and humid out.

This week I’m introducing you to a navy, mint and peach bridal shower, with the slightest hint of gold mixed in.

I really think the navy with a touch of gold helps welcome the fresh mint and peach tones into this inspiration board theme. I’m loving this color scheme as a baby shower, or bridal shower, but really think it could be used in a ton of functions. Hellloooo ladies luncheon!

Here’s what I’m thinking:
