On Trend – Geometric Shapes

As an artist, I have always enjoyed a balance between organic and geometric shapes. Repetitive use of geometric shapes in event design is trending right now and I LOVE it. One of the great things about this trend is that, with a little bit of crafting, you can easily create a stylish party on a budget.

Geometric shapes make an appearance on tablescapes in weddings and parties. Pastels colors and the use of greenery soften the hardness of the shapes and make it a perfect element for bridal and baby showers.

These plates from Amazon are adorable and totally affordable. Because of the colors and patterns you could use them for birthdays, showers, a playful picnic, or a tea party.

I also love these lights because not only are they beautiful, but they are battery operated which means you can easily incorporate them into you party decor. I can’t count the number of times I couldn’t make my lighting vision work due to the lack of an outlet!Geometric shapes can be tastefully added to cakes or used in paper decor to add further dimensionality. Often times it is used as a simple metallic accent which I find elegant.

On Trend – Desert Rose

I am absolutely in love with the “Desert Rose” theme that I’m seeing in party decor, interiors, edibles, and more. Cacti have been extremely popular in weddings lately too. The cool greens of succulents and the darker, almost emerald, cactus greens make a beautiful contrast with dusty rose and blush.

Using crisp and clean design elements and metallic accents makes this a perfect theme for a bridal or baby shower. I would LOVE to host an eclectic desert rose dinner party for a more simple production, but I have seen some amazing weddings pulling from this trend.
