Soft Pastels: the Life of the Party

A bit of August party inspiration coming your way… pinks, corals & oranges make the perfect backdrop for a shower or tea party and I LOVE love the upside down poms (turned flowers) hanging over the top of this table. How creative! Can you imagine sitting beneath with the flower blooms swinging gently above?

Oh sweet summer nights.

Bouganvilla, sweet peas, garden roses and boxes of ripe peaches make the perfect centerpiece. Handmade soap {scented similarly?} wrapped in scrapbooking paper works well for a great favor. I love the simple menus and the floral napkins (so easy to diy) – pictured very top.

And here’s another option with plenty of peonies in birch vases – how delicious does that grapefruit mimosa look? Details such as the drink tags help to personalize a bigger party.

Hope you have a few reasons to throw some fun summer celebrations before fall finds us! Images from A Diary of Lovely.

    Wow, what a pretty punch of color! So warm, so inviting. Absolutely gorgeous and one the most stunning tablescapes I’ve ever seen. Keeping this color combo in mind next time I host a shower. Thanks for the sweet inspiration.

    Oh my gosh this is absolutely beautiful. I am not just saying this to give you a compliment but I think this is just perfect. It even has my favorite fruit and you could add apricots too. I want to have a party when I get all done with my cancer treatment and I want it to look like this!!! Thank you for posting it this made me happy :)

      I’m so glad you were inspired! Best of luck with your treatment and you must throw yourself a pink, coral & orange party when you’re finished. I have a close friend dealing with the same sort of treatment and I send all my prayers your direction :).

    Wow! What a fabulous job she did styling this party! The colors are so pretty, but I’m loving how “fresh” it all looks…from the beautiful flowers to the peach crate…I LOVE it! Really like the hanging tissue paper flowers, too! Thanks for sharing! :)
