A Spring Time Party Idea!

I just found the cutest party decor idea on the Hostess with the Mostess blog! I love the idea of not having an actual theme but using beautiful colors and modern patterns to create a dynamic and interesting tablescape! Mixing patterns is a HUGE trend this Spring so wow your friends with these fun ideas that don't take a lot of time but make a huge impact!

Everyone has a collection of vases or jars hanging out under their sink so round them all up and get ready to revamp them! Now they suggest covering them in wrapping paper but we say FORGET THAT! Wrap them in fabric and you can change the decor whenever you want and all you have to do is pin the fabric in the back and you can use it again after your party! This makes it not just a totally cute but a totally GREEN idea as well. I'm also loving that simple table runner! You could pick two different fabrics and make it reversible so that it could work for more than one event! 

You could even use bright colored fat quarters for some sweet fabric napkins! I love that nothing matches yet it all goes so perfectly! Just pick lots of pretty prints in several of your favorite bright colors and mix them up to perfection! If you're a little intimidated by mixing prints that aren't in the same fabric line, just look at a fabric line for hints! You'll see that in all lines there's usually a few big bold prints that the collection revolves around along with smaller, less busy or repetitive prints like a polka dot, stripe or a plaid in coordinating colors! It may seem hard at first but once you get the hang of it, you'll be mixing patterns like a professional stylist!

And if you EVER need any help picking out fabrics or planing party decor, come into the shop and talk to one of our awesome Cabbage Rose gals! Bring your ideas or your inspiration and we'll help you make your perfect party a reality!
