The tropical trend! I personally love that this is a trend right now. Who doesn’t want to step into a world of pina coladas, beachy vibes and serious vacay flashbacks? The only problem with themes like this is that the party decor can get cheesy real fast. So I put together a complication of tropical goodness to break down how to throw a stylish tropical-themed party.
Colors are always where I start as a designer. They set the mood, as well as reign in multitudes of ideas I get excited by. I included white as part of the color palette because I think it provides a calming complement to the intenser blushes and greens. Because tropical is all about the flowers, you can bring in a lot of color just through florals. And you should (in my humble opinion)! Just use white to help balance everything out 🙂
