Fabulous Finds, Inspirations

Pink + Orange = One Perfect Party

While trying to come up with a theme for a summer birthday bash, we keep coming back to this gorgeous table we saw at Spring Awakening last month inspired by the Broadway show, Flower Drum Song.

Nothing quite says “fiesta” like this color combination so if we throw a pink and orange party this summer, here’s what we would do.  Send out great invitations…

    I saw some cool large paper poofs that can be suspended from the ceiling like paper lanterns. They are dramatic and would look so awesome in large numbers.
