Do you need a little inspiration? Well, find that party inspiration through color. Basing your party around color gives you a lot of options for your party.

Colorful Party Invitations –When it comes to the party invitations, make sure to represent the color scheme. Get creative and think outside-the-box. Paint your own party invitations, make a VIP invite attached to lanyard, get ribbon and attach colorful paper to the end of it or create a pop up invitation to make these unique. Go all out with this party, especially with the invites since they are the first impression.
Tabletop Decor – Decorate your tables in full color. First, pick out a table-cloth and then add a table runner with some print on it. The print on top of the solid creates something fun on the table. For centerpieces, you could take a glass vase and fill it up with small paper lanterns or even fruit. However, if you want something a little more elegant, create a floral centerpiece. You can also buy melamine plates in different colors and patterns. Be sure to mix and match them along with your napkins.
Party Decorations –Keep it simple, yet in the color. Have your florist create small floral arrangements to set throughout the party. Place them on each tables, throughout your house and even in the center of food platters. You can also use candles and string lights too. A fun party accent is frames. Frame the party menu, but make sure it features the colors of your party.
