Blue + Yellow = Awesome!

Mixing primary colors in design can be tricky… take for instance the red and green bedroom project I tackled awhile back.  However, if you pair the right hues together, mixing primary colors can turn out really cool.  That is why I was struck by this image of a blue and yellow party I came across on Pinterest:

This version of the blue and yellow color palette seemed so fresh and unexpected. When you keep the blue a more turquoise shade and pair it with sunny yellow you have a winning combination.  I loved the color combo so much I decided to try it out on our Easter table:

The blue came from the place mats I found at Pier 1, blue polka dot plates, die cut Easter egg, and turquoise vase I had.  A fresh bouquet of daffodils and little fluffy chicks (fake, not real!) that I also found a Pier 1 provided the pops of yellow.

I made a couple DIY decorations for the table like these egg flowers I found on Pinterest…

…and these coffee filter flowers I made by soaking coffee filters in water and food coloring, making some cuts to form petals and then layering the filters on top of each other.  I used a yellow marker to add a little more detail to the center of the flower:

The little fluffy chicks were my favorite part of the table.  How cute would they be with these cards at a baby shower?

I think the blue and yellow color palette is just perfect for a spring / summer party, but it would also look awesome in a room.  Check out some of my favorite blue and yellow rooms:
