Lemon Yellow Celebration Inspiration

Here’s a bit of inspiration teaming with soft yellows and golden accents - reminds me a bit of lemon sherbet, actually, which is just perfect for a summer celebration.

This inspiration board lends itself to any sort of shower, birthday or even for a wedding. Or how about just a summer get-together with friends under the stars?

These miniature yellow bags would look great with a custom stamp and filled with sweet treats.

Below, vintage lace works perfectly as a table cloth, and wild flowers in a matching palette are a beautiful addition to a simple tablescape full of thrift ware finds.

I love this dessert bar with it’s colorful accents and the green grass moat around the base of the cupcakes. We did something similar for a friend using wheat grass, though you could also check out your local home improvement store for flats of grass.

A delicious bourbon spiked ginger lemonade punch and more inspiration after the jump….

Chalkboard walls are my favorite in the kitchen and bedroom. Choosing a pop of color (like turquoise) helps balance the darker background.

Keep in mind there are many different types of black so before you grab the nearest pitch black gallon of paint, determine if your room would benefit from a blue-black, deep midnight color or dark gray. You’re best bet is a matte – avoid the glossies.

If you’re not a black-wall-type-of-person, not to worry – but if you are, there are four more delicious examples after the jump! Plus credits for all of the images….
