Modern Event Reception in Turquoise and Yellow (with a Touch of Paisley)

Years ago, and I mean YEARS ago, back when I started sharing these weekly wedding and party inspiration boards, I created an ideas board for a turquoise and yellow wedding, with a hint of paisley. That was 4 years ago, FOUR.

I like to think a lot has changed in the fluidity and cohesiveness of my boards. My inspiration has changed, and my interests have switched from weddings to more social and fundraising events and themes. Periodically I like to go back and look at some of my earlier work, revamp it, and take a stab at it with all of the new ideas being shared these days.

This week, I look back at my turquoise and yellow event, and bring it into a more modern and warmer design concept, with turquoise blue, bright yellow, and chartreuse green all mixed in. A little paisley print thrown in with the linens adds interesting contrast, while the colorful lounges and additional solid linens help balance out all the colors.

Here’s what I had in mind for this modern take on a turquoise and yellow event with a touch of paisley and wood:

Modern and Clean Thanksgiving Decor in Maroon and Turquoise Blue

As we find ourselves in that final stretch before Christmas madness takes over, it’s important to remember that all of the stress we put on ourselves during the holiday season is not as significant as who is around us. It’s easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of the season and forget that all these get togethers and parties are there for us to connect with our friends and family, not to show off or one-up someone’s pumpkin pie. With that mindset at the forefront of your thoughts, allow me to present to you the concept and idea for this week’s Thanksgiving decor idea board.

For this week’s theme, I choose to create a calming but welcoming effect with this modern and clean styling Thanksgiving decor. Maroon and turquoise blue are the heroes of this color palette, with crisp whites and silvery greys accent in the background, merging with the inevitable orange hues of natural autumn decor. Creating such a warm and inviting environment for you and your guests to share can help foster a relaxed and more intimate visit, with the focus on each others company, and not overwhelming decor. Why not try it in these shades?

Here’s what I had in mind for a modern and clean Thanksgiving decor in maroon and turquoise blue:

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:

I think this would be a perfect color scheme for a woman’s birthday party this summer, but how else could you see this theme working for? Maybe a bridal shower? A wedding?

Bohemian Patio Party Ideas

I could go for a party this weekend, how about you?

I’m in the mood for a patio party. I don’t actually have a patio for entertaining; much less the patio featured in this week’s inspiration board, but it doesn’t make me not want to throw this party any less. It’s getting warm out here in the evenings, so I’m thinking ice cold cocktails, star lights, great food and summery colors would make for a fun get together. Here’s what I had in mind:

Lime and Turquoise Spring Luncheon

Happy Wednesday!

Today I am so excited to share with you this vibrant inspiration board. I was channeling bright and bold colors, but wanted the softness of a spring function. After a bit of brainstorming, I came up with a luncheon in turquoise and lime, with hints of paisley. Here’s what I had in mind:

Summer Wedding Ideas in Turquoise and Silver

When I saw this great art print by IkeStudio on Etsy, I knew it would be such a cute print to have framed and put on a wedding table, maybe near the desserts, or even near the cocktail station! It said, “Today is a perfect day to be happy”. What better quote for a wedding day is there than that?

I loved it so much I decided to use it as the main inspiration for this week’s inspiration and idea board. I’m channeling a beach or destination wedding, with bright blues and a hint of sparkle.

Love Is Sweet – A Cocktails and Sweets Engagement Party

Have you heard the phrase “Love Is Sweet” before? As the rise of themed candy bars grows, so does the popularity of that saying!

Do a quick search for “Love Is Sweet Take A Treat” and you will get MILLIONS of picture results with every color candy bar imaginable. Crazy isn’t it?

I thought: why not take that theme, and go a little bit further?

This week’s inspiration board was for a young, recently engaged couple who are fun loving and want to celebrate their engagement with their family and friends.  They want a relaxed and fun environment where everyone can mingle and chat. So what better way to do that then to have a cocktails and sweet party?

love is sweet cocktails and sweets engagement party ideas teal blue bronze unique pastiche events

Love Is Sweet – A Cocktails and Sweets Engagement Party

Everyone loves desserts and can’t resist a yummy drink. I went with a light blue, almost turquoise color, paired with a bronze for this idea board, but any color combo you choose would do.

A must have for this type of party is a signature drink, extra points if you can make it match one of your theme colors.

Another must is lots and LOTS of desserts. I tried to get a little of everything in, but the highlight of the evening will undoubtedly be the Ferrero Rocher inspired desserts.

If you REALLY wanted to run with this color scheme, you may want to take a trip to the thrift store. They often have odd mix and match glasses, and I bet you could probably pick up a few blue glasses for your guests to use. Don’t worry, they don’t all have to match, in fact, it’s almost better that way. Everyone will have their own unique glass, and they will help enhance the party’s décor! Win win!
