Tropical Party Ideas 2

Tropical Party Tableware

This summer we have plenty of ranges to shout about, but this collection by Ginger Ray is definitely one of our favourites! Hot Summer is perfect for tropical inspired parties, mixing classic motifs like pineapples, cacti and palm fronds with modern, iridescent details. The colourful collection is ideal for effortlessly brightening up any party table, simply throw on a vivid table cloth then accessorise with plates, cups, napkins, adorable paper straws and of course a sprinkling of tropical party confetti.

Totally Tropical Decorations

Go totally tropical when it comes to your party decor, I don’t think it’s necessary to stick to the ‘less is more’ motto with this theme. Think heaps of greenery like palm fronds and artificial plants, fresh fruit bowls, coconuts and plenty of pretty party accessories. Add a bold pop of colour with our quirky cactus garland and tropical bunting.

Summer Photo Booth Fun!

What better way to jazz up your summer snaps than with a selection of exotic photo booth props. Choose from pineapples, fun signs, glasses and even a sombrero!

Pineapple Invitations

Invite guests to your summer soiree with their own personal pineapple. We love this cute DIY from Oh Happy Day which turns paper cups into fill-able invitations!
