From time to time, we love nothing more than throwing parties of our own and with the British summer teasing us with tropical climates and monsoon-like downpours, we felt it was the perfect excuse for a party – because any excuse is a good excuse, right?
So, welcome to our tropical fiesta!
A fiesta theme calls out for colour. We wanted to make sure our celebrations were vibrant (thanks to the drizzly day) so we created floral arrangements that packed a colourful punch!
We created vases from hollowed pineapples, adding a tropical twist to our arrangements. These are super simple to make and great if you’re planning a tropical party of your own!
Try it for yourself… DIY Pineapple Vase.
To bring some added flair to our flowers, we accessorised our arrangements with Flamingo Party Food Picks. Pineapple vases, bright blooms and pink flamingos?!… Argh, we just can’t take our eyes of them!
Decoration can be tricky when you’re planning a garden party or something al fresco, so be creative with your application!
We tied streamers of satin ribbon to the washing line to give the garden a celebratory feel. Simple, effective and colourful – the kinda party prep everyone likes!
When we style a celebration, whatever the setting, we like to create areas in which guests can really enjoy the theme. Our tropical chill out gave guests the opportunity to rest their party feet and day dream of sunnier days…
Dressed with palm leaves and Tropical Fiesta Bunting, our stacked apple crates gave our chill out area a styled setting.
Inflatable Watermelon Chairs (which might be the coolest things ever) teamed with tropical fabric made for the perfect little escape.
We love to repurpose styled elements so that guests can enjoy the party as it transitions from day to night, so our feature wall transformed into the backdrop to our fun fiesta photobooth!
But what’s a photobooth without props? These Hot Summer Props from Party Pieces meant we could strike a pose with the perfect accessory – and who doesn’t look great in a set of pineapple glasses!?
A table setting with total tropicana feels!
Our pop-up backdrop is fully customisable to any theme. We created a display of palms and paper fans so that the food became a feast for the eyes – especially with tasty nibbles served in these Cuban Fiesta Food Baskets.
These Neon Decorative Paper Fans are great for pops of vivid colour within any party venue.
Pair them up with artificial palm leaves and you’ll be transported to a fiesta of fun in no time!
The Hot Summer range from Party Pieces was the perfect pairing for our tropical fiesta theme!
Into the Night
With the party in full swing, we couldn’t wait for the night to fall and work its magic…
Flamingo lighting illuminated the garden, faces were adorned with glitter and the darkness of night transformed tropical celebrations into a fiesta of fascination!
We’re not sure what’s left of the summer, but what we do know is we wish we could do it all over again!
