Oh, summer. You are such a great idea in theory. Then the temp hits 100 degrees and I am drenched in sweat just walking from my car into the Target dollar spot.
What’s a girl to do?
If its going to be hot outside, then the we need to bring the fun to our parties in other ways- mainly by having adorable party decor without breaking the bank. So here are the best inexpensive centerpiece ideas and dining table decorations that will delight your guests and make you forget the heat!
Simple Table Decorations
Any great party or table centerpiece includes donuts. I mean, can we just be honest? Donuts bring the fun. Donuts made to look like pineapples- well, its now fun overload. Look at these adorable toppers- simply stick them in the donuts and suddenly your table decorations just went to a WHOLE ‘NOTHER LEVEL.
Adorning the table are tropical leaves. These tropical table decoration ideas are inexpensive and easy to find- simply raid the outdoors, or if you don’t live near the tropics, you can find them online. Dressed up with pineapples throughout the center of the tables makes this table centerpiece so festive.
And do not forget about the kids. These Jello cups are simply bought in bulk, placed on a cupcake stand, and dressed up with a tropical umbrella. So easy that you will not have the shame of a Pinterest fail here! Score one for Mom!
Fruit makes a perfect centerpiece for a backyard party–it is cute and practical. It’s a centerpiece you can eat! These pineapples are festive and summery. I used bright plates and colors and dressed it up with an inexpensive lei.
If you would like to see me explain these ideas live, I was just featured on Fox Good Day sharing some table decoration ideas for parties. Watch it here!
