Lemon & Citrus Party with a Tropical Vibe

A fun and funky tropical lemon citrus party is so easy to put together for a summer backyard party, a tropical bridal shower, or a “She Found Her Main Squeeze” bachelorette party. Lots of brides are choosing a citrus themed wedding. This theme features yellow, orange and lots of green palm leaves for a bright summer color pallet.

Layer, layer, layer – when it comes to your backdrops, to get a fun, full and festive space – layer backdrops and balloons. Add the citrus slice balloons to a balloon arch. Layer the lemon yellow backdrop fans with a fun tropical palm leaf garland in front. You can create fun themed mash-ups by using these elements from the shop.

This monstera and palm leave garland is a really fun addition to your backdrops. You can even hang it on the front of a buffet or cake table for a really tropical vibe.

A party isn’t a party without flowers. I LOVE this beautiful lemon slice and bright floral centerpiece from The Hostess with the Mostess. She really brights the vibrancy of a tropical citrus party in this arrangement. Just line the inside of a clear vase with thin slices of lemon, or other citrus fruits.

PRO PARTY TIP: If you want your roses FULL like these, you need to condition them a few days ahead of your party. Start by making fresh cuts (at a 45-degree angle) on each stem, and place in warm water. Peel off 2-4 of the outer petals of each rose. That will allow each rose to really open up and curl out fully like they are here in the picture.

Set the table with our fun, bright-colored collection of Boho Fiesta and other designs. These collections are meant to mix-and-match, so select the designs that you like the best!

Create a Menu with Fun Citrus Themed Food & Drinks

There are so many fun citrus-based cocktails out there. The first that comes to mind is of course the margarita. We LOVE a good margarita here at EnFete, and there’s sure to be a flavor for your event and helps carry the tropical vibe.

Find your perfect margarita in this post of 6 margarita recipes.

A lemon-flavored cake or macrons in citrus colors make a delicious ending to your event.

Over at PROPER they feature this lovely simple naked cake decorated with some lemons, clementines, and some greens cut from my her parent’s backyard. – the cake was make by Whitney from The Blonde Who Bakes. I don’t know about you, but I want to be invited to her parties 🙂

A crowd-pleaser is always the charcuterie board. You can make one to match almost any theme. This one from the College House Wife has fun pops of color that match our tropical citrus color-theme.

How gorgeous and delicious do these Citrus Caprese Skewers look? Find the recipe on Summer Citrus.

No matter what food you serve, or cocktails you imbibe, remember to ENJOY your event. We can easily get lost in the details, but it’s really the gathering that matters. If 2020 has taught us anything at all, it’s to enjoy being with the ones you love, when you can be together. Celebrating doesn’t have to be grand, it can be limited to 10 guests or less (in a pandemic!) and still pack a lot of style. I hope you enjoy these fresh citrus-themed ideas.
