We can’t think of a better way to say goodbye to the dog days of summer than with a fabulous party.
For the season’s last hurrah, we’re merging the far east with the upper west side to create a glowing, neon wonderland.

Neon paper lanterns set the scene for a one-of-a-kind outdoor event. Here, we’ve mixed pink, orange, lime, turquoise and plum lanterns. Color blocking is used to unify each table. The lanterns hang from custom metal tripods with white jumping grass added for visual interest. This simple and easy to assemble centerpiece makes a huge statement.

A custom umbrella wall provides the perfect backdrop for the evening’s festivities. Lit from behind, the gorgeous paper parasols cast an vibrant glow on the dance floor and provide a great backdrop for photos.

Matching capiz candle holders decorate the top of each table. Battery operated votives make this table setting a show stopper with minimal fuss. Matching lazy susans provide a fun way for guests to enjoy the evening’s cuisine. A simple place setting with neon colored napkins completes the look.

As night descends, things really light up. The party is transformed from a festive summer fling into an electric neon fantasy. Custom lighting adds interest to the dance floor, inviting guests to get on their feet and send summer out with a bang.
