Summer is officially here, even though living in Florida it’s summer everyday..LOL! Bring on the heat and pool days! To celebrate summer, I decided to throw a tropical chic party. The backdrop for this party was created using a gorgeous white 12ft balloon garland filled with fresh, tropical greenery. Food was kept on the lighter side with a simple charcuterie board.
I headed to my local florist to purchase the greenery I would be adding into my balloon garland to bring the tropical vibes to life!
- 15-20 areca palms
- 20 green palm reeds
- 4 selloum palms
- Purple orchid spray
I made the 12ft garland with pearl white 11″ and 5″ balloons along with 11″ white tissue confetti balloons. You can purchase your own DIY kit here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/608598764/balloon-garland-diy-balloon-garland?ref=shop_home_active_1
Once your garland is complete, start by sliding palms into the garland alternating directions.
Here are the food items I purchased for the charcuterie board:
- Imported aged cheddar
- Pepperoni stick
- Cheese twists
- Artisan crackers
- Savory rice thins crackers
- Hot pepper raspberry preserves
There’s no right or wrong way to assemble your board, just have fun with it!
A macrame table runner added a boho touch to the food table. To bring more tropical vibes, I also decorated the table with a fresh pineapple and purple orchid spray.
I love how this party turned out! It is super easy to recreate with the simple, yet gorgeous tropical touches. I hope this gives some inspiration for your summer events!
