Event Decor

My 8-5 job is event planning for the Florida State University Foundation. Lately I have been working on the decor for several events we have this spring. Below are some images that I have complied for an annual luncheon near the end of February.
"Corporate Events" can have expectations of formality, but I am attempting to give this event some fun and whimsical elements, while keeping our attendees up to date on trends, like the oversized balloons. (I wish I could throw in a dessert table)
My inspiration came from the napkins shaped like a bow tie and continued once I saw the lemon centerpieces, the carnation balls and the individual cupcakes at each setting. My hope is that it won't look too much like a shower but will still carry a subtle yellow theme.
