Palm Springs Deco Ideas, Black, White and Yellow

Love these Do-it-yourself wedding ideas from Lollipop Event & Design!Black, white and yellow is a great color scheme for spring, summer or fall and instantly adds a modern touch to any event. Here are some tips from Lollipop Event & Design on how they created these Palm Springs details (the table runner was made with wrapping paper!):













Table
:
Start by simply throwing a standard white table cloth onto your table. Then, to add the bold stripes of this contemporary look, find a table runner that is brilliant with colors! To add the bright sunny Palm Springs feel to our d├ęcor, we made a table runner out of wrapping paper to give a pop and layering affect to this modern look. To line the paper, we glued on black velvet ribbon to finish off the look, giving it the appearance of a fabric table runner. Use any color of ribbon or size to create a different effect on the table.















Centerpieces:
Simply get three mirror candlesticks, one higher than the other two for a main centerpiece. To play with the illusions of the mirrors, top off the candlesticks with a ball of dainty daisies, incorporating the colors of yellow and white!
Next, add four square small black vases, two on each side of the ceramic shape, to integrate the contemporary look, while tying together the black stripes of the table runner. Simply add white roses into the vases, arranging the roses so that the buds are perfectly above the rim of the square vase, giving it a full bodied affect.














Table Settings:
Sophistication, elegance and glamour were the inspiration for this table setting! The mirror placemats are the epitome of elegance! You can rent simple circle or square mirrors. We then placed classic patterned platinum-lined china onto the mirror to transform this table setting from ordinary to extraordinary!
For the napkins, simply find a pattern that offsets the bold strips of the black and white table runner to mix & match the patterns. We then used the same wrapping paper and velvet ribbon of the small table runner to make stylish bellybands, linking together the sunny bold yellow color of the deco look with the glitzy facade of the mirrors. You can place the napkins in any position you’d like! Play with them to see what fits your table! We positioned ours hanging down, springing color onto the white table cloth. To finish this table off, put your baking apron on! We had cupcakes made with yellow and black dots to add a sweet taste to our modern look!












Paper Candy
:
For this super stylish table featuring bold colors, patterns and centerpieces we wanted to remind the guests the goal of the night… to have fun! We played with them a bit by making them find their own dinner! Menu items were hid in the word jumble for the hungry guests to find. Little yellow golf pencils could not have matched more perfectly!
