Guest Picks: Plan a Fresh, Turquoise-Blue Patio Party
How about a signature fruity cocktail in this pretty glass? I have similar glasses.
Pass out appetizers on this beautiful ceramic platter.
I love a fun drinking straw. These are great with polka dots.
Here is another pretty cloth napkin option. I have this in the table cloth.
Crisp, coordinating paper cocktail napkins are a good idea.
Choose a lovely outdoor table like this French-style one from Ballard Designs. Black and white looks great with turquoise.
Use these casual cotton napkins. I love the stripes.
Start with a rattan charger. The textures look good with turquoise. I use mine all the time.
Layer the charger with this pie crust dinner plate. These are similar to the plates that I have.
Top the white plate with a turquoise salad plate or bowl, depending on your menu. It makes for a really pretty table before your guests even sit down.
Add a large water glass with ice and lime to each place setting.
Line the center of the table with recycled bottles filled with a bloom or two.
Scatter some sea glass on the table. I have these and use them in the bottom of hurricane lanterns.
Freshen the space with a few outdoor pillows like this one from Restoration Hardware.
Or this one from Serena & Lily.
Ice down your beverages in this white ceramic tub. Note: Perrier bottles blend in well with the theme.
This 16-inch platter is great for serving vegetables or meat straight from the grill.
Here is another outdoor dining set that I just love. It's whitewashed with a British Colonial style.
As the sun sets, light candles in lanterns like this one, and place them randomly around the patio.
Then, plug in string lights to complete your magical turquoise party.
