by Claire O’Sullivan, Content Marketing Manager

There was much to celebrate in June: Pride, the first day of summer, Father’s Day, the Tony Awards, Stanley Cup champions — the list goes on. The hundreds of events uploaded to PartySlate in June lived up to the lively month with the most vibrant color palettes, incredible branded installations, unique themes, and more. Almost impossibly, we selected the top 12 events uploaded to PartySlate this past month. Read on to be wowed by two destination weddings, an inspired beach-theme gala, and more.

“A sense of youthful joy exudes from every photo in this gallery — but my absolute favorite photo is the colorful smoke bomb shot over the water. Cedar Lakes Estate offered a picturesque rustic canvas for this Southeast Asian wedding celebration. I love the deep tones from the oriental rugs and the pops of royal blue that brighten the space.” — Lauren, Director of Marketing

“A blush palette and some rosé makes any event so much more chic — not that this event needed the boost. Incredible floral centerpieces and perfectly coordinated tablescapes made this cocktail party one to remember. And I can’t forget to mention the luxe bar cart décor.” — Claire, Content Marketing Manager

“It seems each Bat Mitzvah uploaded to PartySlate is more glamorous and over-the-top than the last. This Chloé-inspired party climbed its way to the top of my list with its endless creative activities and incredibly detailed branding, including a life-size perfume bottle constructed completely of pink roses. The guest of honor was ahead of the swing trend we’ve been spotting all over — I’m sure there was a line for the interactive photo booth all night.” — Pamela, Editor

“This incredible destination wedding is inspiring my next getaway — or perhaps my move — to Kapalua, Hawaii. The green, full-of-life landscaping, wood detail elements, and crisp white florals created the dreamiest palette. I can’t imagine a celebration more serene and romantic.” — Amanda, Marketing Coordinator

“German food, fun, and, of course, beer — all under the Miami sun and palm trees? Count me in. There was no holding back with this creative birthday party theme, like the blue and white draping recalling Oktoberfest’s iconic tents and dirndl-donning servers.” — Nick, Growth Marketing Manager

photographer: Patty Nash Photography | planner: Plan Design Events | venue: Mr. C Coconut Grove

“This party really committed to its theme — complete with multiple vintage car installations, reminiscent of Gatsby’s iconic yellow convertible. Entertainers on stilts, ceiling-suspended acrobats, and glitzy silver and gold décor perfectly painted a picture of the epic parties we all loved reading about. I will definitely be taking this roaring 20s inspiration with me into 2020!” — CJ, VP of Sales & Customer Success

“I’ve never seen a blue so bright. This incredible gala exploded with color from within a clear-topped tent. I’m crazy about the multiple monochrome tablescapes that cast a rainbow design across the space. The heart décor was playful yet tasteful — and it’s making me crave a sprinkled ice cream cone.” — Marlee, Customer Success Director

“It’s hard to describe a wedding as unique and breathtaking as this Tulum celebration. Wicker lanterns, woven chargers, feathered florals, and tinted glassware effortlessly dress the dreamiest tablescapes. But the element that stole my heart was the extraordinary wedding arch. Half pampas grass, half greenery, all pure perfection.” — Kim, Account Executive

“From the second this Bat Mitzvah was uploaded to, our whole team couldn’t stop obsessing over every rainbow detail. The ombré balloon clusters hanging from the ceiling caught my attention initially, but the wall of rainbow tassels and hand-painted bar have to be my two favorite décor elements.” — Nicole, Marketing Manager

“HMR Designs celebrated their anniversary the only way they know how: with an absolutely stunning party in Chicago. The evening was full of surprises, with a different theme and corresponding décor in each room. A lavender room, epic projection mapping, custom cocktail art, and one of my favorite performance line-ups ever from Élan Artists, were just a few of my favorite elements from this celebration.” — Pamela, Editor

“Food was front and center at this interactive, festival-themed event in California, but I also loved the on-theme décor. The bohemian-chic accents and lounge areas were perfectly complemented by a Coachella-style ferris wheel. And can you spot the life-size gummy bears? One of my favorites.” — Erin, Customer Success Associate
