Having an event on the Fourth of July is a great way to celebrate with your company, your friends, and your family. People are in the mood to celebrate not only summer, but also this sizzling holiday. Unfortunately, the color scheme can be rather, well, limiting! Here are some ideas to add sparkle, and the WOW factor – to patriotic red, white and blue.
This is a great time to add a lot of sparkly embellishments … no such thing as overdoing it on this holiday!
If you want to go classic and a bit more subdued, here is a nice way to do it. Start with a blue linen, white chairs, and flowers. Add red plates and stemware to finish this look in an All-American style!
My gift to you: A real “wow” of an idea! A patriotic swag bag is hot, hot, hot! Don’t wait until the end of your event to give it out. Sparklers, a small bag of red, white, and blue jellybeans, noisemakers, or a Solo cup emblazoned with a Fourth of July detail, creates a great icebreaker. Guests will have a lot of fun with the swag during the party. If you are having a corporate event, you can brand the items in your swag bag with your company logo to create a long-lasting memory.
If you are planning a Fourth of July wedding, I love this red, white and blue look by Nisie Vorachard, the Floral and Design Guru of Southern California. Even if you are planning it for this year, there is still time to talk to your lighting designer and add a pop of color that is so effective here.
From our team to yours, have a happy — and safe — Fourth of July!
