The hardest thing for many people is to find a theme for their party. For everyday entertaining, the key is to find a connection, a directing line for your décor.
Why not get inspired by a color scheme for your next party? Looking at the handpicked items picked by Efratom, you can feel the festive vibe.
I particularly like these for a bunch with the girls:
Invitations: Set the mood with by sending the good morning buttercups by lncgreetings – price: $4.50 USD
Decor: Tie on the votive holders a few Betty by the Pool…fabric covered bead bracelet by AnnieandOlive – price: $15 USD
Tablescape: Lay down an orange polka dot piece of fabric for your tablecloth. Or you can frame the Pass the Orange Spotted Coffee picture by weberphoto – price: $10 USD
Centrepiece: Go simple like a bouquet of lovely orange Ranunculus or a grouping displaying a single bloom. The Rhode Island photograph dsbrennan produced this Ranunculus 8×8 print – price: $30 USD
Party favors: Go green with this coin purse made of salvaged banner by birdversusbird, Russell Coin Purse – price: $8 USD
The Bobby Flay Turquoise Dinnerware at Kohls fits well with our theme. Unfortunately, only the oatmeal bowl is still in stock.
The next time you need to find some inspirations for your party, you can browse through my site :-), but you can also look in your closet or flip the page of a home decor magazine to find a pattern from which to derive all the party elements.

Hi! I was just searching for a color palette of teal and orange. I came across a website ranting about orange and teal that didn’t link to the pic I like. I am SO glad I went through the comments, and found yours linking it to your website.
To be honest I was only reading the comments to find someone to defend the color palette. I happen to LOVE teal and orange, and want to plan my autumn wedding around these colors.
Anyways beautiful collection, and I’m glad you stood up for yourself!
