One of the biggest trends for Spring 2009 is “Crazy Lady Chic” – full of patterns, florals and every color of the rainbow – this trend can be a colorful inspiration for both fashion and parties this season.
A couple of easy ideas for food: ladies like to eat light, especially at lunch time. So keep the meal to a minimum; serve a fresh salad with fruit, and save up those calories for a strawberry-lime stuffed cupcake for dessert!
This idea could be used for a birthday party or a shower – mix and match colorful chairs, different patterns of china, and a variety of whimsical flowers. I love the pink candelabras with green candles! (Think pink candelabras are hard to find? Check your local Home Goods, Marshall’s or Target for any color, cheap candelabra….and then spray paint it whatever color you desire!)
Place cards add a lovely, personal touch to any party. I absolutely love this idea of using grass and miniature cups! So easy to do yourself, and you could really use any type of glass – a mini tea cup, espresso mug or even a shot glass. These are so cute, your guests will be thrilled to take them home with them as a reminder of their sunny afternoon!
