I am so excited about it being an Olympic year, heavily pregnant during the last Olymipcs I am going to be making the most of partying during Rio 2016. We put this Bright and fun tropical party together in no time at all and it is one of my favourites. Using a bright colour palette you can create a party with huge impact and atmosphere very simply and quickly.
you will find all the details of how to achieve this look below.
How this party was created:
DIY's and points of interest:
The Throne: Our Tropical Throne was created by attaching Palm Leaves (from the garden) to the back of a chair using masking tape. We added a comic touch by hanging our Star Sunglasses onto the leaves.
Pineapple honeycombs opened only halfway were stuck to the wall with bluetack to create a cute backdrop. We used our Giant Pineapple Balloons and Potted Ferns accessories with Flamingo Stirrers and some Plastic Featherstone Flamingos to create some interest.
Mini Balloons were used as a table centerpieces (note these only last 1-2 hours inflated with helium)
On The Tables:
Bottles: Our cute Glass Drinking Bottles were decorated using a touch of Fringe Garland and 500ml Serving Bottles were topped with some Neon Pink Washi Tape. Each Bottle had a flamingo Stirrer and a paper straw.
The cloth on the table is a Large Paper Lime Green Tablecloth. and we lay paml leaves down the middle with bunches of bananas, lemons and bright mini honeycombs to decorate.
For tableware we chose Palm Print Paper Plates with Pineapple Napkins, Sunny Yellow Utensils tied with Raffia.
Our Kraft Deli Boxes held the individual desserts and were tied with raffia and decorated with fruit picks.
Boo! - Halloween has not been cancelled! Although traditional Halloween parties and Trick-or-Treating may not be on the agenda for most during this COVID19 pandemic, there are still plenty of ways we can celebrate this special time of year in a way that is safe and that follows social distancing restrictions.
I ordered these and the pastel wooden cutlery to give out to friends at socially-distanced gatherings so that I don’t have to wash up and risk spreading the virus. They are disposable but much more eco friendly than plastic. Ideal.
