Everyone loves a party. I know I do. When I was in New York City, I was fortunate enough to work alongside some of todays top talents. Because I was doing an internship during the summer, most of our celebrations were weddings (although, we did throw a botox themed party for a new york socialite). When Spring comes along, I think about outdoor parties. I love the idea of gathering all of your friends for an afternoon lunch or late-night cocktail. How gorgeous would it be to throw a nautical themed party on the beach? All you Hamptoners out there, I envy your location!! I'm thinking everything would be deep navy blue and white; crisp, beachy and sophisticated.
I'd like to think of this as a party inspired by the fashion spreads of Ralph Lauren:
Here's an idea: Instead of plain table cards, why not use cork to write the table numbers (or you could use them as escort cards)
Have all eyes on you in this classy Ralph Lauren piece
Use deep blue and white striped pillows to keep your guests comfortable
Need I say more?
Having one long table makes for a more casual party. Its nice having everyone gathered around one table (and better for sharing those family style platters)
A great way to come up with a theme or get inspired is to look at fashion or design pieces. Start thinking about a color palette and work from there!
What parties will you be throwing this Spring?
