Thousands of people can stare idly at a rolling sea and find inspiration and ideas about what to do next in their lives. The beauty in the crashing waves and the amazing colour spectrum it can make end up sparking a great imagination for an event, whether it be for a wedding, a beach birthday party, or some other sea breeze style party. Here are some amazing colour palettes I found from Sally Lee by the Sea that can really help you come up with the perfect colour combination for your beach themed party!
This one simply screams Tropical Paradise with it’s amazing over water beach villas and crystal blue waters. You can create the Tahitian dreams feel by using tans and browns that would usually be found in the material of villa huts. Using actual wooden slats in your event is a great way to give the same feel in a different aspect, giving the colour palette a more 3D visual experience than just simply using the colours you would find in this particular slice of paradise.
This colour palette goes along the same theme, and would be a great combination to use in a South Coast beach wedding as it follows that particular style of coastline. Use tan tablecloths and white starfish and shells to create the rock ambiance and add a touch of blue to the flowers on your centrepieces. Beautiful!
If you want to bring an aspect of the beach to your event, but don’t want to go too overboard with the blues and seafoam greens, you can focus on a more sandy, shelly colour palette than a sea based one. I would suggest still using the kind of colours in your event that you would find in the water, but make their influence small and rare. Use the majority of your decorations as a mutual tone, like tans, sandy browns and pearly whites. It’s natural, but oh so elegant!
If you want to go the other way and use vibrant natural colours, but want to stay away from the blues and clear colours you would find in your average beach, you could take a more lagoon feel to the decorations you would use at your event and focus more on the teals, darker greens and less highlighted aspects of the beach. When you think of the ocean you think blues and sand and crests of white, so take it a more unique way and focus on the deeper ocean and what lies beneath it. This would also make a great colour spectrum if you were having a Creature From The Black Lagoon kind of party!
