Disco Ball Party Decor

You know how sometimes, people say “Let’s host a summer luau party” and a lot of the time the initial reaction is “EEEHHHH” because it’s been SO commercialized and become less and less authentic, and incredibly predicable and cheesy? I think the poor disco ball has also waltzed into that arena. It’s hard to work with disco balls and make them look high end. The proportions, proper lighting, and necessary ambiance needed to really pull them off is hard to do. Then there are the other questions that come up, such as what type of party is this? Is it a neon party themed? Or just disco balls? Can you even use disco balls without other decor?

This week I’ve put together a disco ball party decor ideas board to help navigate and inspire your inner decorator. I think the key is to work with lots of quantities, you can’t just have one big disco ball over the dance floor, and to work with lots of different sizes. There is a reason people are fascinated with the disco ball; it’s just so shiny! So to keep the focus where it should be, I’ve opted to make the focal “color”, if you will, white. It’s not really a focus, but it’s what everyone else will be seeing in the areas not touched by the disco ball decor. Plus, white is an excellent background to make the disco ball effects pop on!

Here’s what I had in mind for my disco ball party decor:

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.

Enchanted Evening Garden Party Ideas

Hello, whimsy! This week I am taking a step back away from modern or industrial event decor ideas, and sharing a classic enchanted evening garden party idea board. There are hundreds, probably thousands, of ideas on the internet that are all so magical and enchanted. I’ve picked just a few of my favorite to share with you this week. Given the fact that the options and ideas are limitless, I choose to hone in on elements that I believe to be must haves for any event. To me, these are the make or break elements that really bring your theme from concept to reality.

For example, if you were to throw an enchanted evening garden party, some of the most important elements would be the table decor and the fairy lights. Ideally, a themed invitation and entryway would be incorporated into your design, to help set the mood. And in today’s modern world, a magical photo backdrop to remember the evening by is a must.

Here’s what I had in mind for this enchanted evening garden party ideas board:

Mechanic’s Car Garage Party Ideas

Vroom vroom! Doesn’t it feel like this year is racing by? I swear not too long ago I was thinking, “Oh, I have PLENTY of time to prepare for Mother’s Day.” Boy was I wrong. Before I know it Father’s Day will be on us, and I thought it would be in my best interest to start brainstorming ideas for the perfect party for any special guy in your life.

This week I thought I would take our party ideas mood board and channel a home mechanics car garage as party inspiration. Of course, I think this would be great for Dad’s birthday party, or even Father’s Day, but it’s got a lot of potential for different uses.  Channeling the more casual home garage vibe in this party inspiration board, it allows the environment to be much more relaxed, perfect for an afternoon BBQ or even translate into an evening soiree with a few friends and family.

Here’s what I had in mind for a mechanic’s car garage party ideas board:

Summertime Unicorn Piñata Party

Higher temperatures = more outdoor parties!

While the temperatures are rising to meet their summer highs, so does the number of amazing outdoor party themes you have the option to choose from when getting ready for your next soiree. And what kid doesn’t love a fun party in the backyard over the weekend?

This week’s party idea board is a summertime unicorn piñata party, filled with pinatas of all sizes, and of course: the classic unicorn rainbow. I love the layered texture the pinatas naturally bring, but layering rainbows of colors just makes it that much more fun. It goes without saying, that plenty of colorful candy, treats, decorations, and drinks are a must for a successful unicorn party. I often think that a unicorn party is a lot like throwing a candy party, but with more of a whimsical and make believe element to it.

Quick tip: as the summer continues to heat up, I suggest going with warmer, more vibrant hues when selecting your unicorn piñata party decor.

Here’s what I had in mind for this week’s themed party idea board:

Modern Mirror Event Decor Ideas

Looking for a clean and modern event decor concept for an upcoming event? Have you considered creating something that will really stand out, like a modern geodesic mirror theme? With plenty of wow elements, balanced out by clean, modern lines, this concept is sure to have guests talking for days. I love the idea of a dramatic entrance that gets guests thinking they are in for one thing, and then have that massive impact moment when they realize it’s the exact opposite of what they thought they were going to walk into, which is exactly what happens in this week’s modern mirror event decor ideas board.

Guests walk in through a dark but dimensional room, with hints of the geometrical mirror, and then the next thing they know, they are out in the open of a bright outdoor space, layered in sculptural mirror elements and complimentary white furniture. To me, this decor design concept could easily translate into a hyper-modern conference reception, scaled to fit any sized summer wedding, or even be thrown for a unique birthday or social celebration. It’s the sculptural, multi-faceted mirror decor that really creates the “wow” in this event, which lends this theme to all sorts of creative functions.

Here’s what I had in mind for each element in this modern mirror event decor concept:

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:
