Cool trick to steal: A tropical-themed party doesn’t need to be loud and bright all the time. This one uses white as the main canvas to allow the soft hues of pink, blue and pink to be soft accents to the party.

Cool trick: There can be a tendency to go a bit cray when planning a tropical-themed party, this party shows that keeping things in  the same colour family can work just as well. When displaying your desserts, side tables of different heights also keep things visually interesting.

Cool trick: Print bright tropical-themed pictures and frame them up to use as a simple backdrop for your dessert table. Repurposing wooden crates are also a nice way to give the eye a rest from all those bright colours.
