Cha Cha Cha! Palm leaves, greenery, pineapples and lots of color make this Tropical Bridal Shower one that the bride to be and guests will love!
Palm leaves and pineapples continue to trend this year, especially with greenery being 2017 Pantone color of the year. However, this tropical bridal shower is anything but dull, with the pops of color and creative design elements.
Details! Guests are greeted with tropical fern green leaf leis and signature drinks, a tropical mimosa bar! Palm leaf bar sign designates the bar area. These chic colorful plastic cups are perfect for outdoor entertaining and include different color pineapple drink charms so no one mixes up their drink.
Create a festive vignette to serve your food by adding paper lanterns, garland, and lanterns. Have food displayed and décor displayed at varying heights to draw the eye in and make an interesting design. Love this table top tent from Oriental Trading which not only serves the purpose of shading the food from the sun but adds a unique design element. Guests enjoyed small bites such as tropical fruit cups with drink umbrellas, mini chocolate moose flower cakes, coconut and chocolate covered cookies, and vanilla butter cream dirty iced cake!
We love this pineapple Turkish towel from Olive and Linen, which is a perfect table linen for a tropical bridal shower or summer party.
Create an eclectic look by layering the pineapple Turkish towel over a white linen and then adding several pieces of chinaware. We played up the gold and white by using gold chargers from Oriental Trading’s wedding collection, white dinner plates, gold foil pineapple dessert plates from Via Blossom, gold and white palm leaf candles with a pineapple scent, gold geometric terrariums filled with succulents, and gold calligraphy table number.
Be creative when design your tablescape! We used these palm leaf placemats and layered them under the dinner plates for a punch of color! Mixing and matching your napkin linens pulls together the eclectic relaxed vibe and adds interest to the overall table design. Playing on greenery we used magnolia leaves and gold calligraphy from LJ Design Co. for place cards and large green palm leaves from Pottery Barn Kids as a table runner.
Adding a lounge area to any party makes guests feel relaxed and provided another vignette to your overall party design. Lanterns, flowers, plants, and festive pillows can easily transform a space. We love how our DIY hibiscus and confetti pineapple turned out, which makes a festive centerpiece!
Tropical Party that transitions from day to night! A sign of a good party is one where guests want to stay and relax. By adding strings of lights, candles, and lanterns you can easily create an event design that’s festive and perfect for enjoying the night with friends!
How fun are these tiki torches and colored lanterns that line the steps?! We added a pop of color with paper lanterns, greenery and tassel garland to the bistro lights above the dinning table.
Give your guests sweet treats as a party favor in this cute pineapple gift box!
