I wanted to start off by thanking CME for allowing me the pleasure to be a guest blogger. Thanks so much! :)
For those of you with a birthday coming up soon and no clue what theme to use for a party, never fear. Just about ANYTHING can be turned into a theme- your favorite artist, music, flower, place... ANYTHING! Grab a piece of paper and write down 10 of your favorites. Are you a Starbucks junkie? Have a grown up tea party with your girlfriends. Or maybe you pictures all over your house from when you went on vacation to the Bahamas. Put a spin on the run of the mill Luau.
Let's say your favorite artist is Romero Britto. With his bold patterns & bright colors, his art work would make a great theme for your party. Linenbook.com has a Britto table linen in their Specialty section you can use for the main table where the cake is or for a few highboy tables if you're having a cocktail type party. You don't want to put patterned linens on EACH table- it'll look like a preschool. Also use black linens to make the art pop.
If you've decided to use the patterned linens on the guest tables, use clearn plastic plates and utensils.
For decorations, google some of his art work and print it on card stock, or order some posters from Art.com. Put a couple on the walls and near the main tables. Your centerpieces can be colorful and crazy. He is known for his daisy art, so a few gerberas arranged artfully will make his art work come to life.
Go crazy with the cake! Take some of his prints to your local baker and ask if they can incorporate his smaller prints- the heart, the daisy, the fishes, onto the sides of the cake. If you'd like, have a topsy-turvy cake to add boldness.
I hope you guys liked my post! Have a great day :)
