Greenery Inspired Parties – Color of the Year
March 6, 2017

Greenery Inspired Parties

I’m a BIG fan of color. So when March rolls around with St. Patrick’s Day, like everyone, I start thinking about green. I don’t like getting pinched so I make sure to have lots of green in my wardrobe arsenal! But I love green throughout the year. It helps us with our connection to nature and becomes as versatile as a neutral in clothing, home décor, and opens up a host of party ideas. Apparently lots of other people are loving it too because Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2017 is Greenery! It’s a wonderfully clean green that reminds me of fresh cut grass, new sprouts, and gives me hope that someday this long winter will end and Spring will eventually come. {Anyone else feel like they are stuck in pre-Aslan Narnia?}

Greenery inspired parties can come in many forms. This week we’ll explore the use a backdrop of plants, trees, or shrubs. This allows a very simple transformation to the party space with big impact. My favorites right now feature animals and today we’ll check out parties with:

  • Amphibians and reptiles
  • Dinosaurs
  • Jungle animals

Frog Party, Crocodile Party, and Reptile Party Themes:

I love frogs! And Kermit happens to be the perfect shade of Greenery but there is so much more we can do with an amphibious or reptilian affair.

Dinosaur Party Themes:

The favorite green animal in my house roamed this earth millions of years ago. Science hasn’t quite decided whether dinosaurs are closer to cold-blooded reptiles, or warm blooded birds. The answer so far is somewhere in between. Either way, we love them!

Dinosaur Party. Greenery Inspired Parties | Halfpint Design - This green backdrop is awesome for a dinosaur party. I love the volcano cake, moss cake pops, and dino eggs.

The potted ferns really set the stage for a prehistoric party. You could also grow your own wheatgrass to create a similar look. The large inflatable dinos are also a fun addition to this Dinosaur Party from Party Wishes.

How cute are these dinosaur tails!? They attach at the waist with velcro for an “authentic” dino experience! These could work for a Crocodile Party as well!

Jungle Party Themes:

Jungle parties are a spin off of the tropical parties we love so much. But instead of focusing on the beach, we safari deep into the jungle in search of of animal life!

These large trees frame the dessert table perfectly in this Jungle themed party. The animal garland and cute hanging monkey help bring it all together. Found at Catch My Party.

Jungle Party. Greenery Inspired Parties | Halfpint Design - This was actually a crocodile party but I think works equally well for a jungle party too!

This table is actually from the same Crocodile party shown above, but the neutral kraft paper and burlap makes it an ideal base for any green inspired party theme. Switch out plates, add a monkey or a tiger, and you’ve got yourself a Jungle Party!

Jungle Party. Greenery Inspired Parties | Halfpint Design - Great Jungle Book Party favors

Sending guests away with a book is my favorite type of favor. These Jungle Book Party favors, from Grey Grey Designs, will be used long after the usual trinkets are lost.

I had a great time finding Greenery Inspired Parties to share with you today. Did any of them inspire you?

If you didn’t quite find what you’re looking for, check out my list with another 5 great nature inspired themes. Take a look if you’re interested in a Lumberjack party, Camping or Glamping party, Woodland party, Fairy Garden party, or Cactus Fiesta party. Any of the nature inspired themes will be heavily influenced by green! Now quick go find something in your closet to wear next week or I’m going to have to pinch you!

Until next time,
