Here are some very nice and simple suggestions for DIY Party or gathering!  Most folks enjoy a casual gathering, uber good food, and varied desserts.  Personalized, with printed labels, the honored guest’s favorite flowers, and colors is a great way to entertain.

Personalized and Delicious Summer Tea

Carrying your color theme throughout is an excellent idea, you can do this with dishes, glasses, flowers, place mats, table cloths, or other accessories.  Remember to infuse with three, or more colors!  If you go monchormatic (the use of one color only), it will have a formal look.

Food selection can be just as fun as eating it, old fashioned favorites are always a hit.   Just add a new twist, like a side dish with lemon, or lime to liven up the pallete.  No wonder Eve had such a hard time resisting the apple!

Organic Summer Fruits make a dramatic enticing display

This fabulous place setting can really lend its self to be formal, or informal. The use of various tones makes the setting feel lively, and helps set the tone for the get together.

A basket of biscotti was strategically place by the door. Every guest will feel really special, and the printed label says “Thank You”, and has a sweet message.

There are many ways to choose your color for a personalized theme, and flowers are just one of them. I hope this has inspired you, please do send in any of your party pictures, or blogs, that you would like to share!

Cheers!

What You Can Add: When you go to staple the Thank You bags, take a small ribbon and staple the ribbon to the bag on top. Tie the ribbon to create a pretty bow, hiding the plain stapler.  An extra touch, creating a completely finished look!
