Baby Shower: Persimmon and Olive

 

The months following Christmas can be kind of dreary, the weather almost depressing!  I don’t know about you, but this is when I start to CRAVE color!  If you are hosting a baby shower during these months, opt for a bright, colorful theme.  Today’s inspiration is full of persimmon orange and lime green (with a few accents of yellow for good measure!).  Sophisticated decor and details will make this an event all will enjoy!

Invite your guests with this invitation from Minted.  It’s cute and simple….and it works perfectly with our color palette!  Keep your decorations simple…a stunning wreath on the front door or over a mantel, monochromatic centerpieces done in shades of orange.  Keep your details simple and your color strong.  As a unique touch, create a hanging placecard that can attach to the back of your guest’s chair.  It will add an unexpected element to the chair, and open up your place setting for an interesting napkin treatment or room to place your party favor on their plate.

Don’t forget to carry your color theme throughout the entire event….especially dessert!  Have your pasties made in coordinating colors to create a stunning affect!
