COLOR: Sassy Sherbet

color-intro1

For my first post on COLOR, I decided to use a piece of Trina Turk for Schumacher fabric.  This new Collection is launching this Spring – and makes me dream of decorating a fabulous vacation home in Palm Beach!  Can’t you just picture the bold, vibrant colors….the clean, modern, white furniture….the pool in the backyard where I could host FABULOUS pool parties?!  Sorry….I’m getting distracted!  Back to the post….

Gorgeous shades of melon, pink and sunshine yellow – you can feel the energy come out of this color palette!

I think these colors lend themselves to a cheery brunch – birthday, Mother’s Day, or just a friendly get together.  Use these colors as your guide to create a cohesive, vibrant party.

Joyous bursts of color above your table creates an instant celebration.

These dahlia-like pom-poms appear to float in the air; in reality they are hung from the ceiling with clear fishing wire. See Martha Stewart for instructions on how to make these darling pom-poms.  You can either carry the pom-pom theme throughout the table by making pom-pom napkin rings in citrus shades to adorn each place setting…..or you could simply tie a brightly colored napkin with a patterned ribbon.

These sherbet colors can easily be incorporated into your food – a lovely pink lemonade, a salad full of citrus fruits, and cupcakes adorned with flowers for dessert.  Looking for a cute favor for your guests to bring home with them?  I love this idea of planting small, bright colored pots with either herbs or flowers.  Dress the pot up with a ribbon and their name….and it will be a darling reminder of your Sassy Sherbet party!
