    A summer wedding theme can often be combined with a nature theme, giving your reception a warm, outdoorsy feel. Nature themes can range from animal-inspired weddings to beach receptions – it’s up to you! Try using seashells and sand dollars to decorate for a summer beach theme, and serve tropical-colored martinis during the cocktail reception. If you’re going for a more floral summer theme, try pairing your flower arrangements with summery citrus fruits! Yellow, pink, and orange colors will have your guests longing for the sunshine. As a creative summer wedding favor, try setting up a table full of candy jars with small bags for your guests to help themselves as they leave!

    This is a great idea. Now all the party needs is some EIFFEL bonbon’s! These yummy treats would be a great addition and really goes with the theme and mood of the party!!
