Rather than creating an elaborate centerpiece, let a potted succulent be the focal point of your table. It’s the ultimate in verdant modern style. Below we see a photo of a Healthy Girls’ Grilling Party from Camille Styles:

How does this vibrant look translate to party table style? Use a tablecloth in a bright color. Incorporate a vivid backdrop by hanging patterned artwork or creating an interesting backdrop for photos. Purchase eye-catching party decorations from fun brands such as the Oh Happy Day Shop. And let your food add a colorful touch! Below we see neon cookies from Mirror80:
