The color team at Design Happens chose cerise as HGTV’s June Color of the Month. In the reveal post, Anna shared a collection of fabulous products along with home decorating inspiration using this fun hue. Some of you loved it and some of you were not big fans. For those who adore this happy, vibrant color, I’m wrapping up our June look at cerise with entertaining inspiration featuring this deep, hot pink and similar shades. Personally, I have a weakness for all tones of pink, so searching for party ideas that incorporate this color was quite enjoyable. I adore it paired with blues, especially bright blue as shown in this gorgeous tablescape.

Planning an event or gathering? Cerise is an unexpected, gorgeous color to incorporate. It works well for showers, brunches and weddings. With such a girly color, dainty details are a must. Dress the part with a gorgeous frock or accessorize with a ruffled clutch. Yes, I am one of those hostesses who coordinates her outfit with the party. Display cupcakes beautifully by adding cerise ribbon and bows to a tiered cupcake stand.

This dessert table designed by Amy Atlas is a perfect example of utilizing this hue for an event. Use color coordinated candy and desserts to continue the color scheme of the party. Use party decorations like flower arrangements, centerpieces, hanging garland and bunting consistent with the color to create a festive atmosphere. Select desserts and beverages that complement the event decor.

Start the party right by using cerise in the invitation! This cerise and navy monogram announcement I designed would work for many events. A perfect party favor would be beautifully packaged French macarons in various shades of pink. Tissue paper poms are available in nearly every color and provide an affordable way to spruce up any event setting.

    Actually, Kayla. What do you think of cerise, turquoise and your existing yellow dining room chairs? I know you're not a pink lady, but it could be super fun in one room!
