Step 2: Decide on a color palette.

Consider whether you are sticking with cool tones like blues and greens, or warm tones like burgundy, or golden yellow. Make sure that every detail matches and compliments the chosen color palette.  

Step 3: Hone in on details

Candles are a great way to create a mood, linen draping, and of course flowers!

Step 4: Plan the food and refreshments!

Having people bring food to share makes the party have a more intimate and friendly feel, plus, it saves a lot of money! Creating a simple Google doc for people to fill out what they want to bring is a key way to staying organized.
