Summer is winding down, so it’s time to throw your final end-of-summer shin dig with the perfect themed dinner party! The rooftop or patio is calling for a stylish celebration, but no matter where you choose to host your party, you’ll be able to create the perfect summer setting with this year’s hottest trends! I’m in love with the flamingos, palm leaves and pineapples that are popular this season, and coupling them with a bold and chic color palette of hot pink, bright green and gold just screams summer. We’ve put together some tips and tricks to pull off this summer’s hottest party theme that will make a lasting impression on your guests!
Move over, flamingos and pineapples! There is a new player in town! Cactus and succulents are the new rage this summer and they are all over the party scene. And thanks to my friend Shelby with BerryPom and James, DFW’s newest online party goods and gift shop, your next cactus-centric celebration is at your fingertips too!I’m loving the cactus theme because it’s fun and summery, plus it brings in a natural feel to your party that is refreshing, light and airy. It’s also a great way to put a spin on a traditional fiesta so you can mix up the party style but still get to indulge in some tasty chips and guac!
BerryPom and James has a passion for party planning and has filled her shop with gifts and decor for all the cutest party trends, but her cactus decor is on point! From the plates and cups, to the balloons, to the candles, I can’t get over her adorable ode to the prickly plant!
To further help your party go off without a hitch, we’ve put together the perfect inspiration board to help guide you as you plan your next fiesta gathering!
You can also play with the color scheme a bit too! I personally love the bold greens and blues with pops of gold as shown in our inspo board, but you could also highlight the lighter greens and use more of a pastel palette and bring in light pinks (especially for a girl’s party)! Keep Reading!
When it comes to hosting a dinner party, it is all about the details! One of my personal favorite details and part of the dinner party planning process is designing the tablescape. Whether you are hosting a casual weeknight meal or a festive fall gathering, the dining room table is where everyone comes together. The way you set the table can determine the formality and mood of the entire evening, so this is not a detail that you want to overlook!
I recently hosted a simple and classy dinner party for my boyfriend and his family. I found tons of inspiration from these dinner party tablescapes, and I hope they inspire you as well!
