  • Shabby Chic Party Décor Ideas

If your next party will be outfitted in shabby chic décor and party supplies, then you may need some theme ideas. Here is a look at some shabby chic party décor ideas:

    Whimsical Creatures

    Mermaids and fairies are the most whimsical mythological creatures you can base a shabby chic party around. However, you may use elves, dragons, or other woodland creatures to round out a whimsical party idea. If you choose mermaids or fairies, then your table linen rentals should be in soft pastel colors with hints of blue or green. Fairy décor can use floral streamers, and mermaid décor can use pearls or seashells.

    Shabby Chic Garden

    A shabby chic garden party should have bistro style table and chair rentals surrounded by walls of flowers and hedges. To display your buffet or dessert, use vintage or worn-looking tables. To complete the look, rent pastel or lace table linens that will complement your flowers and add softness to the overall setting.

    Vintage Tea Party

    Tea parties can be for your child’s birthday party, a baby shower, or a bridal shower. Rent vintage or bistro style tables and chairs where guests can gather. Rent dishware in pastel colors or with vintage designs. You can use old, wooden boxes and birdcages with flowers as shabby chic centerpieces.

    Vintage Paris

    Paris, Rome, London, and many other places can be used for a themed party with shabby chic elements . You can use vintage furnishings and decorations from the country or city you choose, which will make the look stand out. Serve famous desserts from the location, such as macarons from Paris.
