We recently collaborated with the styling + entertaining guru Annette Joseph to pull together our best tips for putting together a modern, stylish party in an affordable way. The centerpiece of the party was our tray of Waverly ® Inspirations Super Premium Semi-Gloss Acrylic Paints. These gorgeous, glossy paints are multi-surface and work flawlessly both indoors and outdoors. With 50+ shades to chose from, it was no easy feat to decide on a color scheme.
But now that the weather is cooling down and fall is in full view, we couldn’t resist throwing a nature-infused party. We covered everything from our front door to our place settings ranging in dreamy shades of lemon lime and evergreen.
We count ourselves lucky to be living in Georgia – our home is surrounded by lush green forests and plant-life, which couldn’t have been more perfect for our nature-inspired party. Keeping mother nature’s amazing colors in mind, we decided to paint our front door evergreen to match the ferns that grow abundantly along the walkway. It was so simple to apply the paint and the resulting saturated blew us away. Waverly Inspirations’s new line of super premium semi-gloss acrylic paints is not only heavily pigmented, but extra durable too, perfect for high traffic areas like our front door.
We’ve called this barn home for 19 years with our 5 kids, while the barn itself has been around for over 50. We love the lived-in, cozy atmosphere that the exterior provides for our family. With the added bonus of a fade-resistant formula, we didn’t hesitate for a second before giving our door a colorful makeover!
Isn’t is amazing how a simple coat of paint can make a world of a difference? Painting your front door is such an affordable way to change up the look of your house and add some high-impact curb appeal. Plus, our guests would get to see a sneak peak of the colorful party awaiting them inside! We were so pleased with the results, and knew it was the perfect addition to our nature-themed gathering. We couldn’t wait to welcome all our party guests through our fabulous evergreen door.
