Colorful Ideas For Your Summer Parties

Summer nights… are my favorite! because ! I LOVE to create dinner parties for my family and friends. Recently I headed to Pier One and bought this cool turquoise color 6 piece dinner plate set for 70% off the retail value.  It was a great buy!

I had this great idea for a dinner party by adding these colorful plates to the  table setting for a festive gathering.  I thought it was a fabulous idea and could  not wait to do it.

I LOVE color and its a great way to create a memorable dinner and to add that punch to something!

So the set-up went like this!

Grabbed my white table cloth from the closet and set the table with my new all turquoise plates! added colorful cloth dinner napkins and my favorite margarita/style glasses. In one of my recent posts I made a Oyster Shell Candle Holder and had that for the center piece.

I am addicted to candles…… and had two lanterns with candles inside of them. The adorable turquoise lanterns fit perfectly into my colorful dinner theme. I found them the other day on a clearance table at  Micheal for $7.00 each.
