Summer is here, and maybe that means you’ll be taking the opportunity to host a few outdoor parties. A clever way to provide everything they need for liquid refreshment in one spot is a beverage station. This can be as simple as a spot to keep all the soda cans chilled or as elaborate as a mini-bar where they can create their own mixed drinks. I’ve been seeing a lot of great ideas for building drink stations lately, so I thought it would be fun to share some of them with you. Here are 5 Ways to Create an Outdoor Beverage Station.
As the days get warmer, I’m drawn more and more to the kind of colors that decorate beach towels and umbrellas. Sun-drenched rooms have the light to be able to handle saturated colors. This room by Holly Hollingsworth Phillips of The English Room was featured at House of Turquoise. It’s a good example of how a room with great natural light can support a bright, busy mix of color and pattern. Check out the tutorials I found for DIYing several elements of this inspiration room.
New Year’s Eve is quite the event at my house. Since it involves lots of kiddos running around, I tend to keep things pretty simple and don’t go too crazy with fancy decorations or gourmet food. But a girl can dream….and I find the combination of coral and gold to be simply divine. You can’t help but think of pink champagne and gold stars when considering the combo of coral and gold. So really, it seems like the perfect color trend to incorporate into a celebration of the New Year.
