Starting with color...
Sometimes the best place to start planning a party theme is with a color palette. Here is one of my favorite places to find inspirational color combinations. It's a website called Design Seeds. Each day is a new photograph that has the colors pulled out in a side bar. What colors do you think make a room look great? Do they make you feel a certain emotion? These are considerations for your next event because a sweet baby shower feels pretty different from a wild and crazy bachelorette party, right?
I also include proportions of color when looking at a palette. This image is proportionately about half of the lighter gray and the other half is a combination of light purples and just a spot of dark purple. How would this translate into a tablescape? or an entire banquet hall?
