Party Shopping: Rainbows and Confetti

Good morning and happy Monday! I thought I’d start the week with a punch of color and sparkle. Sound ok with you? This is actually a little feature I’ve been wanting to introduce for a while – party shopping guides! (Better late than never, right?) Basically, I’ll showcase an image or two from a really great party or wedding and then hook you up with a party shopping guide for recreating the look yourself.

The basics of this party are lots of punchy color paired with loads of confetti and sparkle, all lending to a really vibrant and exciting atmosphere. This is actually a party that’s pretty simple to reimagine for your own celebration. Focus on bright, rainbow-inspired colors and inexpensive decor like balloons, crepe paper streamers and oversized paper flowers and honeycomb balls. Add a bit of glitter and confetti and you’re ready to party!

You did a great job in collecting seven fabulous resources for party supplies - sometimes the simplest things (like party horns!) can be the hardest to find!

I love this post! If I can't go to a party, I'll just make my own. :)
