Peacock feathers can add a bold, elegant statement to any party. In different cultures, peacocks are revered and represent luck, beauty, fortune and courtship, which makes the incorporation of their feathers perfect for just about every celebration!

For your color scheme, use rich purples and blues contrasted by bright greens, teals and/or turquoise. Purchase plumes of peacock feathers to add to floral centerpieces and/or place settings. You can even add to fans, to keep guests cool during summer shindigs.

When I saw this feathery wreath in Michaels, I just could not contain myself! So pretty and bold! you can even lay flat for a funky table setting or centerpiece!

Pom Love, an Etsy vendor, offers gorgeously colored tissue paper pompoms. The pictured pompoms are great for a peacock themed celebration such as The Inspired Bride's suggested color palette.

Tissue pompoms are relatively easy to make with tissue paper, wire, string and patience. They provide a great whimsical and fun look to party decor.

Another Etsy vendor, Local Colorist, offers beautifully crafted origami cranes on peacock patterned paper. These can also serve as cool place settings or interesting hanging decorations.

If you're hosting an intmate affair at home, use these cool coasters from World Market to protect your counters and tables from inevitable spillage and staining.

I came across another Etsy gem, Timeless Paper, that created these beautiful perforated peacock placecards (I've featured their butterfly placecards before) that are perfect for larger dinner affairs.

Plates and Napkins also offers peacock themed items. Use these beverage napkins to punch up table settings.
