Elegant Sheet Music Inspired Event Decor and Party Ideas

It’s always around this time of year there is a burst of energy, directed at the planning the next season of afternoon luncheons or fundraisers galas. Everyone seems ready to take on their next challenge and plan big grand events. Unfortunately, during this excitement and period of motivation, I often think many event designers and planners seem to think so little of their event decor and concepts. Is it because they are in such a rush in their excitment to keep the planning train moving on schedule? There have been way too many “Night in New York”, or “Great Gatsby”, or even “Evening in Paris” themed events ever done, and I have to assume part of it is due to rushed deadlines and frustration trying to come up with something new and exciting. With that said, I’d like to challenge planners to come up with new and invigorating concepts, pushing their decor vendors to new creations and designs.

A theme that I think would work particularly great for an afternoon luncheon,  a corporate event, or even a symphony fundraiser gala, would be an elegant sheet music inspired event. Think classical instruments, traditional or vintage washed sheet music. I can honestly say out of the many, many events I’ve been a part of over the years, I’ve never seen one like this. It is elegant, and refined. Unique, and also able to be fitted into a larger concept or branding. What I especially like most about this sheet music party decor, is that it could be done with or without floral elements. With proper instruments, some accent candles, and plenty of sheet music accents, it is possible to pull off this concept, without having a huge floral expense.

Hot Pink + Gold Ladies Luncheon

Planning a summer luncheon for you and a group of ladies? Maybe you are part of an organization that hosts annual meetings over lunch. Spruce up your next luncheon with this fabulous color scheme: pink and gold!

And how cool would this floral infused hot pink and gold color scheme be paired up with a fundraiser for a local charity? I invasion this color palette at a women’s organization annual meeting, that has lunch and a fashion show. There are several trendy area boutiques and designers that attend and showcase their wares in the fashion show. Hot pink flowers adorn the stage, and of course each of the tables.

Here’s what I had in mind:

High Tea Lunch {With the Girls}

First there were the holidays, then New Years, back to work, back to school, Easter…you’ve probably been running around like crazy keeping busy! When was the last time you had a great lunch with you girlfriends where you could just nibble on some great food and chat and catch up?

I bet it has been too long!

Why not get them together over at your place, and have a cute high tea luncheon! You only need to invite a handful of ladies. Make sure to have a selection of teas and sandwiches, and some pretty sweets to nibble on. Oh, and don’t forget to pick up some lovely fresh flowers for the table!

Don’t worry, if you don’t have enough tea cups, a quick trip to your local thrift shop can fix that problem.

So pencil in a date with your girlfriends and start searching tea sandwich recipes. Here’s my inspiration board for a high tea lunch with the girls:
