As the summer is winding down and the last of the summer 3 day weekends coming up I thought it would be fun to go a little retro in this week's themed Thursday. At the end of the summer it is always a great time to get all your friends together for one last big party weekend and what better way to do so than going old school!! I found this amazing retro citrus party theme from Lollipop Events and Designs.
This retro citrus party includes lots of DIY party decor that I just love and you can coordinate it for any occasion be it a shower, birthday party or just a fun get together. The focal point of this retro tablescape is the amazing wrapping paper table cloth. To make this table runner all you need is a wrapping paper of your choice and a spool of grosgrain or felt ribbon. Unroll the wrapping paper and cut it the length that you want it. To attach the ribbon take some craft glue and glue the ribbon to the edge of the paper. It will make the runner look like you bought it at the store and you can make as many different ones as you like.
The second DIY project to create this tablescape is the flower arrangements. To make these vases you just need a great spray paint and a few vases. A nice bright color, like this apple green, really pops against the table runner and makes the whole table arrangement stand out. Make sure you get a spray paint that works on glass so that the paint doesn't peel off after one use.
To finish out this table set-up use a third color that is bright and festive, like a lemon yellow, in your napkin, plates, bowls, and cup selection. With bright neon colors in all out fashion, decor and accessories it is easy to find table accessories to create this amazing citrus table arrangement.
What neon creation would you create for an end of summer party?
