Summer is almost upon us and it’s conjuring up some visuals of tropical getaways, warm beaches, and oasis inspired event designs. The hottest event trends for summer 2019 have tropical vibes and beach-inspired looks. Whether it’s a wedding, social gathering or corporate event, tropicals impart fun and bold color in a hot way. To prepare for this upcoming summer soiree season, we’ve created three on-trend, tropical design guides that will help you get the look you’re dreaming of. Here are some of our favorite looks for this summer that embraced this trending style.

1. Neon Modern Tropical
Neon is so hot right now! According to Pinterest’s 2019 trend forecast, searches for “neon wedding signs” are up 291 percent. This neon rage is making waves everywhere, from hair and makeup to graphic design. We think there’s no better way to start the summer season than by adding an injection of neon into your summer event, and what better way to incorporate it than in a tropical look?
How to get this look: Punches of bright pink transforms a tropical look into a modern and youthful design. Graphic pink tropical prints are a great place to start. Add hot pink trimmed napkins and white boho beaded placemats to make the look more formal. These grapefruit thyme popsicles are also a cool way to incorporate bright pink hues into the menu!
2. Havana Cabana Chic
Rich and layered emerald greens of a lush tropical getaway, the deep turquoise of the shaded blue pool, flowing gauzy white drapes of the cabana blowing in the breeze… this is a tropical dream we were envisioning when we put this look together. Relaxed, yet chic, this cabana look is a perfect mix of elegance meets vacay vibes.
How to get this look: Citron and jade tropical print table linen paired with jungle patterned menu atop an emerald green charger plate. Fun palm plates added to this polished charger make this look feel more relaxed. Finish off the look with custom tropical print pillows, to add luxury and comfort for your guests.
3. Nautical Tropics
With the charm and luxury that the south is known for, but tropical vibes that make this look perfect for a summer soiree. This refined look is all about the natural elements and colors of the tropical coast. Sandy nudes, stately blues, and classically trimmed touches make this look easy and stylish.
How to get this look: A soft-hued stripe is a sophisticated staple to start this look out with. Next, you’ll want to pick a classic hemstitch napkin with a polished napkin ring. Choosing a colored hemstitch napkin is a way to update this look from the traditional Nantucket look we’re all used to seeing. Seagrass bowls add the tropical and natural elements that set this look apart.
