You know that’s a reference to a song, right? By Johnny Cash? You might have heard it played this past St. Patrick’s Day? Not sure what else you might have thought I was referring to, but just wanted to clear up any confusion right away! So as I was saying… I’m dreaming of the color green this week, all 40+ shades of it. It’s so calming and cooling, although that kinda makes it sound like I’m talking about calamine lotion! But it’s true, psychologists say so. The color green reminds us of nature and is a great neutral in so many different color palettes.
I hope you liked the photos we shared this week. Take a look below for a refresher! Maybe you’ll get some ideas on incorporating the color green at your next event. Like if you’ve always wanted a grass-covered loveseat, but didn’t know if such a thing exists, well wonder no more! It does! (See Tuesday’s photo.) Sharing cool ideas to inspire creativity is what The Party Goddess! is for. I plan ridiculously fabulous events, each with a different look and feel. And I’m happy to share some of my faves with you so you can make your own event just as fab, just as unique.

If you’ve been one of my loyal blog followers, you know that we publish these image roundups weekly. We feature a particular event for a particular client so you can go deep on the particular theme. If you know what’s up, skip this part. New visitors, take a look below…
In case you missed it, here’s what we’re doing, mentioned in the first blog. (And if you already know what’s going on, skip to the first photo!) Every day we’re posting event photos & inspiration to my Instagram page to give you ideas for your own events. And, of course, to encourage you to hire yours truly, one of the top Los Angeles event planners, for your next soirée! In terms of format, we’re trying to capitalize on the whole hashtag calendar world and take advantage of #WeddingWednesday (#WW) and #ThrowbackThursday (#TBT) by posting wedding photos and cool stuff we’ve done on Wednesdays and on Thursdays, harkening back to a past client’s event, be it a celebrity, or just one of us tastemakers.
Favorite Event Photos and Inspiration – Monday:
Dreaming of… the color green. Olive green to be exact. Or maybe I’m just dreaming of olives… and the drinks that I’ll put the olives in? Oh whatever, it’s all dreamy. Next time you’re making an antipasto platter, or a martini or bloody mary bar, load up on the olives so everyone can enjoy!
Favorite Event Photos and Inspiration – Tuesday:
Talk about taking the whole green furniture thing to the extreme! This loveseat was a fun prop at an Into The Woods–themed Halloween party. And it made another appearance at a wedding where the centerpieces were all made of gorgeous succulents.
Favorite Event Photos and Inspiration – Wednesday:
Dreaming of… the color green. This time, it’s shades of bright green and blue thistle. What a beautiful combo! Happy #WeddingWednesday!
Favorite Event Photos and Inspiration – Thursday:
This succulent arrangement is not only a beautiful shade of green, it’s also taking the “Go Green & Recycle” mantra very seriously. It’s planted in some recycled AC ducting. So when you’re finishing up your next heating/cooling project — you know, from your side job as a contractor — save some of the ducting and give it an elegant upgrade as a planter! Pretty genius huh?
Favorite Event Photos and Inspiration – Friday:
Dreaming of… the color green. This time in the form of green drinks! Appletinis, grasshoppers, mint juleps, margaritas, mojitos, anything with cucumbers or mint, even a plain old smoothie with kale for the day after all of those drinks! They’re all delish! #TGIF
Favorite Event Photos and Inspiration – Saturday:
Everyone loves a luau-themed party, right? I mean what’s not to like about mai tais, drink umbrellas and cheesy Hawaiian shirts. They’re not cheesy if you’re in Hawaii or Trader Joe’s, but when everyone is wearing them at a party in LA, it becomes sorta funny, and fun! So at your next luau, why not go all out and make a Mr. Pineapple Head mannequin like this one?
