Colorful Streamers and Ribbons Party Ideas

Is it too much to ask for a summertime party that is colorful, doesn’t look cheesy, and also doesn’t cost a fortune? I don’t think so! While it’s easy to get swept up in beautiful tropical oasis soirees and exotic paradise island themed parties with all the inspiration on Pinterest, it’s important to remember that you don’t have to have all those specialty plants and decor to make a summertime party that wows. With some imagination, ribbon, streamers, and some string lights, you can create colorful party decor without it looking cheap or overdone. Here’s some ideas to get you started:

Colorful Streamers and Ribbons Party Ideas

Some of the key takeaways for this colorful streamers and ribbons party ideas board would be:

  • Keep your color range in the same hues – so do all warm colors, or all pastels, just don’t mix them together!
  • Length is key! Make sure you play with proportions and height for optimal impact.
  • Think about where there is movement. The great thing about using streamers and ribbon is they have natural fluid movement. Use that to your advantage with perimeter decor, hanging from trees, etc., and be careful of too much movement in traffic areas such as the entrance.

Manicured Garden Soiree Ideas

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:

Backyard S’mores Party Ideas

It’s crazy to think that the summer is just a few weeks away from being over, and even harder to think about how this time last year, I was designing a party idea board for a backyard movie party under the stars. With today being National S’more’s Day, I thought it would be appropriate to add a new party idea board to our growing collection of summertime celebration themes. Why not combine a movie night under the stars with a s’mores campfire session? Seems like the perfect way to say goodbye to summer.

Here’s what I had in mind for this backyard s’mores party idea board:

Starry Night Sparkler Wedding

Picture a magical evening wedding under the stars: twinkling lights draping down from a massive oak tree, suspended over the place where you and your loved ones are gathered to witness your wedding ceremony…..sparklers illuminate your reception, taking focus in your centerpieces, your cake, your send off, and even your photo opps. That’s what I envisioned when putting together this starry night sparkler wedding idea board. Something magical, something different, and something truly memorable. I think this week’s wedding inspiration board captures those things and so much more. Here’s what I had in mind:
