I discovered these tropical decorating ideas while helping plan an event very close to my heart…
My wonderful Mom was married to her very sweet beau, Richard, this summer. The loving couple had a simple, enchanting, homemade, fun, tropical wedding and reception. The affair was filled with love and tropical beauty.
Pardon me for the tropical interruption. This seemed like a good place for a video of Stone Calypso Medley – Trinidad&Tobago – Steel drums.
Color the party fun and festive with bowls and other serving pieces in the blue/green pallate, accented with crisp white.
Great serving spoons were found at a dollar store.
2. Scatter Fabulous, Decorative Fish Nets. They can be found at dollar stores and used over plain white tablecloths for a tropical touch. Try them for a tropical wall decorations.
3. Sprinkle sea glass. I found small packages of it at Michael’s for around a dollar.
4. Beautiful Baskets, Crazy Useful. You could fill them with tropical colored napkins, an arrangement, or to hold chips or bread.
5. Put it All in Positively Perfect and Multipurpose Pails. They’re available in all sizes and colors and can be used for everything from holding arrangements to silverware and drinks.
6. Flexible, Fabulous, Faux Foliage. We found ours at a dollar store and they really amp up the tropical feel.
7. Burlap, Not Just for Bags Anymore. A great layering piece. We used a 1’ x 1’ square as an inexpensive starting point for a tropical centerpiece.
8. Bouncy, Beach Balls. Scatter on the tables or fill the pool with these playful, always tropical, adorable additions.
9. Lanterns, Some Light Up for Extra Pizzazz. I found these little ones at CVS, they’re tropical, add interest and beautiful at night.
10. Fish Decorations, Plates, and Bowls. They are just tropical and cute
