Cocktail Accessories, Bold Decor & Party Attire: We're Color Crushing on Cobalt Blue

With the seasons beginning to change, people usually turn to warm earth tones and soft metallics for fall. But there's a new trend we've been spotting in fashion, home decor and even serving essentials – cobalt blue.

From party attire to DIY home decor ideas, cobalt blue is the perfect way to add a bold pop of color to your party or event. Whether you want to go as big as painting a big piece of furniture or as small as adding a fun cocktail stirrer, we've got you covered. Check out our favorite finds for your fall party in cobalt. 

  • DIY Bookshelf

    Need some extra storage around the house? You can build this bookshelf from Simply Designing in no time, and add a pop of this trendy color to your place!

  • Drink Stirrers

    When I’m throwing a party, it's great to add in something fun for guests to enjoy with their cocktails. While shaped ice is always a plus, these drink stirrers from C Wonder add a fun pop to whatever drink you're serving.

  • Cobalt Mani

    Blue has been a popular choice for manicures in the last few years, especially turquoise and light mint blue. But we have been noticing a big trend in cobalt blue nail polish that we love. It's the perfect way to add a pop of color to any fall party outfit or occasion. We're inspired by these delightful digits shown on Sephora's Southern Living page.

  • Drinking Glasses

    Even if you’re not hosting a dinner party, these glasses would come to good use with just your closest friends around, or even you and your beau having a date night in. Of course these water colored glasses from Terrain are gorgeous, Because they aren't overwhelming with the cobalt, and they each bring their own special personality to the table.

  • Peplum Dress

    You should celebrate in style, always. This dress on ASOS is perfect because it’s in this season’s hottest color, and the peplum style is flattering on everyone (it keeps your waist looking small and who doesn't want that?)

  • Mugs

    If you love to enjoy a cup of coffee or tea with guests at the end of a dinner party, then a set of these mugs from Design to the trade are ideal. I might not be able to wait to show these off! The boho feel of the design is great, and they are not overwhelming with the color.

  • Mirror

    Welcome your guests into your house with this stylish mirror from Etsy. The color of the frame is really bold, and adds just a touch of color to any tabletop or wall space.

  • Pitcher

    Make some cocktails in bulk and serve them up in this colorful pitcher from Seven Hopes United. Winding down a cold pitcher of something fall festive will totally get your guests into the seasonal mood!

  • Napkins

    Serve up dinner along with these pretty blue napkins from Gracious Style. By adding these napkins to your celebration you can add a pop of this new color, without making too much of a permanent change.

  • Pants

    Wanna have killer style like Kate Middleton? Jump onto this color band wagon and grab yourself a pair of cobalt pants. They go great with a white shirt, or to really step your style game up try light pink or yellow! You will be sure to impress.

  • Napkin Rings

    Napkin rings usually feel a bit formal and fancy, but these eco-friendly paper ones from Etsy add just the touch of color your tablescape needs. And if you’re feeling crafty, you can always DIY your own version!

  • Serving Plate

    What is a party without a serving plate, or two? These cobalt ones from Kitchen and Company are the perfect shape to entertain with, and would look perfect on your dinner table.

  • DIY Serving Utensils

    We've seen this DIY all over the internet, but this cobalt and gold set of utensils from Design Mom might actually be the winning set! The color contrast is perfect for any kitchen.

  • Night Time Entertaining Dress

    If you're hosting a cocktail hour, or even drinks with the girls before hitting the club this sparkly number from ASOS is the perfect dress to wear out on the town.

  • Centerpiece Decorations

    What really caught our attention about this new color was how perfectly it looked with some flowers as the centerpiece on a table, like this wedding inspiration from 100 Layer Cake. We’ve been thinking about making my own blue vases with this tutorial from Madigan Made and adding some seasonal flowers. Wouldn’t sunflowers look just beautiful in these vases for the fall?

  • Serving Tray

    Another must have entertaining piece, this serving tray from Macys has a refreshing print to help you bring this color into your home without overwhelming you. Even just hanging this tray on the wall could brighten up and room and make you look totally on trend!
