Last week, Anna blogged about decorating with chrome yellow, HGTV’s August Color of Month. So, as I prepared my post on entertaining with chrome yellow, it dawned on me that I must have a thing for color, because I seem to adore every hue that is picked as the Color of the Month. One of these days, the HGTV color team will select a tough one for entertaining, and I promise to confess if I hate it. For now, I’m all about this month’s bright shade of yellow.
My favorite color trend right now is the yellow and gray combination. From home decorating to weddings, this pairing is simply gorgeous. These pretty paper details will add color and texture to your next soiree.
To bring in the bright yellow color to your party, use lemons for decor, desserts and drinks.
I recently styled this yellow and gray dessert table for a HGTV feature on “Elements of a Dessert Table“. Created to celebrate an engagement, the ideas shown are also perfect for a bridal shower, baby shower or wedding. Brightly colored candy and desserts bring pops of yellow into the design.
