Attention to detail

In my opinion, attention to details makes any party memorable. Do you remember my party for my friends' 25th anniversary? For me, my inspiration comes from many sources. For this event, the inspiration came from the ribbon and a piece of fabric that I found in my entertaining arsenal.

The ribbon

 The fabric

I found coordinating card stock to make invitations from paper-source.

In addition to the teal colored cake, the same ribbon was used to tie the gift packages and also to make a bow for the cake knife.

 Teal/ blue and brown color theme was carried through the tablescape with a silver accent.
My inspiration fabric is used on the dessert table. The dessert table is coordinated with teal, brown and silver.

The accent teal bamboo lanterns were used throughout the house to tie everything together.
