See Jane Celebrate: Chic Tropical Engagement Party Decor

Posted on May 25, 2016 by Jane Summers

Spring and summer weddings instantly make us think of chic coastal retreats, breezy palm fronds and sophisticated color palettes. Once we saw Studio DIY’s “Palm fronds + Bon Bons” dinner party feature on her blog, we couldn’t help but channel our inner stylish 70s Hollywood Hostess. The laid back sophistication, effortless elegance and inimitable style of Palm Springs is perfect inspiration.

Imagine hosting a chic, tropical mid-century modern Palm Springs-worthy engagement party. Studio DIY’s “Palm Fronds + Bon Bons” dinner party feature on her blog makes planning this event a breeze. (Click this chic little link to see it all for yourself.)

We still can’t get over the palm fronds table runner, the mini pineapple accents or the palm fronds-decorated balloons. Did we mention Kelly Mindell (the woman behind this incredible blog) made it all herself? As if we needed another reason to love sophisticated wedding balloon décor ideas…select this lovely link to view one of our favorites from our previous post.

Of course, the best part of inspiration is finding a way to make it your own.

SEE JANE SIP

Let your guests not only see, but taste the magic of summer celebrations with a personalized cocktail. Use pineapple, guava or another fun fruit juice as a base to create one-of-a-kind drinks they’ll want to savor. Consider styling a mid-century bar cart as well…Select this lovely link to view Jane’s Pinterest Board – See Jane Style, full of inspiration for planning a Palm Springs-esqueTropical Chic Engagement Party.

SEE JANE SIT

Set the scene with inventive seating charts. While it may take some time to get the design just right, this can be well worth it. Imagine your guests’ surprise when they see their names beautifully written in calligraphy across a gold pineapple-accented seating chart. The mix of modern and tropical designs will be breathtaking and worthy of a few shots for Snapchat.

SEE JANE PLAN

Select a location to remember. If California wedding celebrations have taught us anything, it’s that you cannot go wrong with an ocean view. Friends and family members will love toasting your upcoming nuptials, gazing across the serene blue waters, enjoying the fresh scent of ocean air and taking in a welcome dose of sunshine.

SEE JANE STYLE

Slip on the perfect dress. Take a style cue from Hollywood starlets of the 60s and 70s and select a modern shift dress. Nothing portrays understated elegance and chic design quite like a smart two-piece, shift dress.  Select this lovely link to see one of Jane's favorites.
