Whenever I’m planning a get-together, big or small, I always start with a color scheme. Lately, I’ve been a big fan of combing blue, green, and aqua. There’s something about that combination that feels so fresh and modern. While I try to stick with this scheme for most of the decor, I also tuck in a few unexpected pops of color. Flowers are my go-to for unique splashes of color. This particular arrangement, Smiles & Sunshine, with a rainbow of colorful flowers, was perfect for the table.

I also really like the blue mason jar. It has a rustic-meets-modern feel. I carried that look through the rest of my table by including some wood plates, brass candles sticks, modern salt and pepper shakers, and a unique table runner.

The food also fits the theme. A rustic salad and grilled chicken sandwich, dressed with your favorite toppings, create a light, but delicious afternoon meal.

Close by in my dining room is my simple, but hard-working little bar cart. Whether I’m shaking a cocktail, pouring a glass of wine, or mixing a pitcher of lemonade it’s nice to have an area where drinks reside. This way, as the host, if I get busy with the party or event, my guests know where to go to help themselves to another beverage. And don’t forget to decorate this space as well. An easy-to-care for-succulent garden adds life and freshness.

And last but not least, let’s talk dessert. For today’s luncheon, I decided to make a Frosted Sugar Cookie Bar. Because honestly, what’s better than a cookie? A whole pan of cookies! I drew inspiration for the bars from these amazing orange roses. I used four different frosting colors to create a unique and gorgeous ombre effect that mimics the look of the flowers. You can get the recipe for these cookie bars on my blog, Inspired by Charm.
