A Cozy, Colorful, and Comfortable Event

It's spring in West Michigan and the newest Crate and Barrel catalog has arrived, tempting me with gorgeous outdoor living areas. I'll be the first to admit that our current patio furniture is anything but glamorous, however when (and if...) I have a great space to create an outdoor living area, I'm going for something like this...Cozy. Colorful. Comfortable.


I absolutely love the reds, oranges, and purples, grounded by the gray furniture and stone seating. I enjoy this color combo enough, I decided it would also be a great event color palette. Maybe not for an entire wedding, but at least for a bridal shower, or even baby shower!

Finding linens was a breeze - BBJ Linen had two great options - silver pintuck and silver twist. And upon further searching, Ami at Elizabeth Anne Designs pulled together some great details a few months ago, shown below. By adding fun containers and a lot of texture with flowers, plus lovely paper products - you'll have pulled together one fabulous party! Don't forget to add romantic candlelight for the comfy, cozy atmosphere!

I love this post Aletha. Crate and Barrel is amazing. Have you looked at CB2? I have used it for a full color palette for a wedding.

Hope all is well for you!
