Styling tips

We share our best hosting tips for pulling off this event.

Tip 1

We used a mixture of pink carnations, white roses, greenery and wildflowers to create a relaxed, yet elegant combination of flowers.

Tip 2

We added a fun photobooth to this party – pink tulle, balloons and flowers would make a perfect and easy backdrop!

Tip 3

For the decor setup, we created two stations, one for the beverages and one for the food using a combination of the linens and decor items.
