Come Party With Me: End Of Summer BBQ - The Look

Usually when I plan a party, I base the colors around the invitation. But this week's invite — for an end of summer barbeque — was a hot dog, and I don't want neutral shades to set the tone for a warm weather bash. So I've decided to use a watermelon as my inspiration and create a look with bright green, hot pink, white, and black. Set the tables with white tablecloths and pink floral arrangements in over sized margarita glasses. Watermelon shaped candles are festive and fun. Plate the nacho potato skins on plates stamped with a watermelon print. Serve the white peach margaritas in classic marg glasses and let guests make their own burgers on lime serving platters. Stack green and pink striped linen napkins next to the food to wipe messy condiments off lips. Night falls earlier at this time of year, so hang green paper lanterns from the trees and deck. Use moss green crepe paper to create garlands and line tables. What decorations are you using this weekend? Share your ideas with us below!
