Warm Color Inspirations for your Debut Party Motif

We has displayed some party color motifs / color schemes we have come up with based on pink and red hues. Remember that in choosing a color scheme, choose only one primary color – the other colors will be for support and accent.

For instance, your gown can be made in light pink, then you can accent it with a darker shade of pink or whatever combination you want. Don’t place all the colors equally, especially if it won’t look pleasing to the eye. Seek some help from friends and family who have an eye for design.

Don’t forget to print out the colors you like if you are going out to look for materials. Most colors and shades have no name, except for HEX color codes, which can be understood by your Adobe Photoshop.

Here are some screencaps of colour inspirations from a website called Design Seeds. Make sure to check them out and explore more of their color palettes.

  2. hi. would a pool party in november be advisable? we want something laid back, not much of the traditional stuff. and could you suggest a budget friendly caterer here in qc. Thanks!

    • Hi Joanne,

      A pool party is good anytime of the year, it really depends on how you’re going to use the pool to your advantage. Sometimes, debutantes who have the privilege of having a pool in their venue don’t like to use the swimming pool, but we still advise them to go with it because they can still decorate it beautifully. Debutants who don’t want to use the swimming pool just fill it up with balloons and flowers, or sometimes they have some big floating candles moving around for an elegant touch. Here is our list of caterers you may want to call =) http://debutideas.com/?page_id=798

      Happy Planning! πŸ™‚

  3. What kind of Color would best fit in a Vintage themed party? I’m thinking about turquoise as the Base color. TI hope you could help me Thanks!

    • Hi Rejina,

      When I think of Vintage, i think of black and white movies, so a black and white party can be a nice twist to your vintage theme. Also, vintage reminds me of old letters and postcards which brings me to my next color palette which is more earthy colors of cream, antique white, peach, pale aquamarine, pale mints, rust orange and chocolate brown, and yes turquoise is also vintage for me because it reminds me of gemstones that may be heirlooms. I think turquoise with accents of peach, rust orange or chocolate brown are great color combinations. Hope this helps.

  4. helo. do u think rainbow motif will fit in a butterfly theme? πŸ™‚ thanks.. may debu is on upcoming may.

    i want a souvenir that is useful and cool. πŸ™‚ can u help me? thanks,

    • Hi Hany,

      Yes a rainbow motif would definitely fit a butterfly theme. Put rainbow colored drapes at the center of your stage right at the top of your debutante’s chair for a magical effect.

      For souvenirs, give away multicolored pens, rainbow keychains and charm cellphone holders, plants, flowers, colorful baskets with pastries, can with multicolored M&Ms or skittles, seeds for planting, preserved butterfly paperweights, just to name a few. Hope this helps and happy birthday.

    • hi ana,
      it’s really up to them as long as the style of their outfits fit the Old Hollywood description πŸ™‚

  5. hi debut ideas πŸ™‚
    i am khei.
    what will be the perfect color for masquerade party ?
    i want yellow and black for my gown. is it okay if i choose yellow and black for masquerade ball theme ? tnx πŸ™‚

    • Hi Khei,

      Masquerade parties usually have bold colors like RED and BLUE. You can make Yellow as your main color motif, but add other bold colors too because just Yellow will be too boring. However, maybe you can still stick with a yellow and black color motif and just let the masks carry the different bolder colors that will make your Photo ops more lively and interesting! πŸ™‚

  6. hi my friend wants to have a reggae-themed debut? i know that the color schemes are red, yellow & green. i dont know how vebue would look like or the invitation or the attire of the guests and the debutant as well…need your help asap…thank you

    • Hi Hedwig,
      Outfits can range from Bohemian to beach outfit (white shirt, etc. The men can wear light colored pants and long sleeved polos. Women can wear long colorful bohemian skirts and tank tops. Basically when you say reggae, it speaks much of the beach! When you have a reggae party, make sure to include the important elements like the tri-color (red yellow and green) and of course the reggae music.

  7. hey debut ideas,

    I want to have a barbie theme, but I really don’t know what my guests will wear, sometimes I think twice whether I’ll celebrate it this way or blah blah, I’m having trouble about it. It’s whether by a barbie theme, greek theme or fairytale theme. I also wanted my concept to be β€œGlam your own style” but how will it be? whatwould my motifs be? and the venue that’ll fit? please help !

  8. hi, do you think royal blue and silver is perfect for my debut? I want something different and elegant. Is it okay? or can you suggest some color combinations for a simple dinner dance party?
    thanks. πŸ™‚

    • Hi Nikki,

      We think that’s a lovely color! Blue is regal and silver makes it even more elegant πŸ™‚
      We have some articles in this site that talks about some color schemes. Maybe they can help in case you change your mind.

      Hope this helps!

  9. Hey there debutideas! I’m just wondering, is it advisable to have a Katy Perry themed debut? If so, what would my guests wear? And what will I replace my 18 candles/roses etc with? Thanks and I hope you reply. Another thing pala, if I’m doing my own invitations, how much would my materials cost? Kahit estimated lang. Thanks and more power!

    • Hi Kaitlyn,

      If a Katy Perry themed debut party is what you really want, then go for it! Katy Perry has a nice and naughty personality so that’s like a contrast of black and pink. You can pattern your theme on one of her songs. The California Gurls for instance displays candies and sweets and ice cream! You can use that as a basis for your Katy Perry themed birthday. You can tell your guests to wear metallic colored outfits plus a pink or white or blond or blue wig if they can. You can use 18 Sweets to replace your 18 candles in which your friends will give you a certain sweet food that they think describes you.

      About the materials for invitation, P500 for the papers + 150 for materials (glue, glitters, ribbons) + 1000 for your ink so that’s around P1,650. Just an estimate πŸ™‚

      Hope this helps!

  10. hi debut ideas πŸ™‚
    i have read some of your suggestions and came up with a reggae-beach themed debut at la vista pansol. i dont know how venue would look like, the invitation, the attire of the guests and the debutant as well. i really have no idea on how to celebrate a CHEAP YET UNFORGETTABLE debut.

    • Hi Czarina,

      Dreadlocks, red green and yellow, knit hats, loose khakis, white loose poloshirts, bohemian dresses, long skirts, long beaded necklaces, tank tops — these outfits describe the freedom-loving Rastafarians! Don’t forget of course Ska and Reggae music that should be played throughout the party. If you want a memorable one, allow for more audience participation. Organize some games that will allow you and your friends to have fun and let your hair down. Basically a reggae themed party is like a beach party (venue-wise). Hope this helps!

  11. hi, i’m having an old hollywood theme-d debut and i would like to see your suggestions on what to replace the 18 candles/roses/treasures with πŸ™‚

  12. Hi Debut Ideas,

    I can’t decide a theme for my debut. I am a person who loves pink, hearts and music. I want my debut to be unique and not the traditional one. I want it to have twists that my guests would really remember. And also suggest things that would replace my 18 candles, roses and treasures. Please do help me my debut is only 5 months away. Thanks a lot! πŸ™‚

  13. hello!

    i’m planning for a alice in wonderland inspired debut and Is it okay for me to have a blush pink or nude pink/peach colored gown? and for my guest, what would be the color of clothes they would wear?

    thanks and more power πŸ™‚

  14. Hi, I am planning to have a debut this July. I am interested in having a fairy tale or butterfly themed party but in a party hall only. Can you give me suggestions for motifs or more themes? I have chosen turquoise for the theme but i am not yet sure. Also I am thinking of a souvenir that is cheap and easy to buy. Thank you! πŸ™‚

    • Hi Anne (jemimahannesamin@yahoo.com),

      If you want to buy cheap debut souvenir items, you can read this article from bridalbook.ph — http://www.bridalbook.ph/wedding-articles/divisoria-hot-spots/?filter=1&sec_id=souvenirs-favors

      We recommend going around Tabora and Ylaya streets because you might get some ideas there. Divisoria Mall is also a good place to start! Of course there’s also Greenhills and you can also check out the suppliers at Multiply.com. πŸ™‚

      We have listed our debut themes in this category: debutideas.com/?cat=5

      Turquoise as a debut motif is also a good choice! There are debutants who go for dark colors like red or midnight blue but these colors only make you look old. Debut parties not just celebrate your coming of age but also your youth and you should look fresh enough for the challenges and adventures that lay ahead. πŸ™‚

      Hope this helps!

  15. Hi! πŸ™‚ I want to have a Parisian debut themed party and I just want to ask if what color motif is the best for my event? My gown is like aquamarine blue I don’t know what it is but it’s a modern-like party.

    • Hi Shara,

      A Parisian theme depends on the props, decor and stage design that you will use. Dark color motif will add to the ambiance of a night in Paris. Also choosing darker color will make your aquamarine gown pop. Try dark blue with silver drapes. Dark table cover with silver or white table napkins and table runners, Eiffel tower cardboard cutout with silver glitters. Dark brown will also create a similar effect. Hope this helps.
