Summer Style- Tropical Cocktail Party

Despite the weather, I'm still optimistic that summer will finally be here soon.
I love summer, I love cocktails and I love parties so what better than a tropical summer cocktail party to spend an evening. Dan and I have even thrown a tropical themed party for New Year before, everyone froze and it was snowy outside but we had an amazing time :)
So here's my tropical party mood board!

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8
Tropical parties are all about fun and colour so think balloons, fancy cocktails, fresh fruit and colourful decorations.
I chose a simple black and white dress with a pretty palm tree pattern because it would be very easy to look OTT in bright bold prints, but pair a simple coloured dress with bright shoes and fun accessories for an easier to wear look.
I found the decorations on The Party Works which is a fab site for all manner of fun decorations. How cute are the floral cups?
The bamboo outdoor torches are a great way to light the garden after dark. They cast a really beautiful light and last a long time without burning out. They can be bought in a wide range of colours and aren't very expensive.
And of course I had to include my all time favourite cocktail, Pina Colada which is a must for any cocktail party!

And there you have one gret fun tropical cocktail party!

      I really like the dress too, I've been so tempted to buy it a couple of times hehe :)

  3. Seems to be an amazing share! Went for a social meet of our society at one of the nearly located event venues few days back. Venue was simple yet a good one. Food ordered was of high quality. Liked the desserts as well. Will suggest the group members to have such luncheon, tea or dinner parties every month.
