On Trend: Inspiration From Fun In The Sun
What better way to celebrate our great nation than with Americana style inspiration?! Whether planning an outback BBQ, or just kickin’ back with family and friends at the beach or pool, the Fourth of July represents a day for casual get-togethers in the US of A. No matter where you live, or what you plan to do on July 4, we can all let our love for this great nation inspire us on this holiday.
GET CREATIVE: 3 Ways to Let Summer Style Sizzle
Mosaic loves summer time! Whether you live in New England, Southern CA or anywhere in between, warmer months provide a time for casual dinners, poolside BBQs and relaxing picnics with friends. For those lucky enough to be near the ocean or on a lake or river, lazy evenings can even include a sunset dip in the water or cruise on a boat! Whether sipping lemonade, slurping boozy popsicles or eating lobster rolls, there are endless ways to create décor and menus that are no-fuss crowd-pleasers!
Umbrella Stripes and Ocean Waves
Dreaming of that perfect beach day? Crisp blue skies, turquoise water and sand so hot it hurts to walk on it? Whether you live near the ocean or not, you can certainly use this palette to create a festive backdrop for celebration. Cabana stripes can be used for cloths or napkins but can also be translated into accents on straws, menus or even paper products. Golden hues feels sunny and warm– so let the sun shine in with sunflowers, lemonade, and other maize toned details!
Flip Flops and Fancy Free
We love this summer palette! Pastel tones of pink, blue, green and yellow are oh so sweet. Using wicker and shabby chic accents with these hues provides a combo that sets the tone for relaxation and conversation. This color concept could work well for a pop up picnic, a poolside afternoon or even a children’s celebration. Keep it light, and keep it simple in design. And oh yeah, a candy display or pinata would be the perfect ending to a soiree using these candy coated colors!
Easy, Breezy, and Fruity
Just lovin’ this combo of citrus tones, turquoise and a pop of strawberry! It makes us want to cool down in the shade, relax on a hammock, and sip on some fruity beverage from mason jars. Who says a summer holiday weekend has to be red white and blue? We think easy, breezy and a touch of fruity tones will set the stage for laughter and festivities.
