To reflect the theme, we went with a full Polish menu and carried the image of the traditional pisanki (ornately decorated egg) throughout. We mimicked the brightly colored pisanki with traditional brightly striped table clothes and flowers held in wine bottles spray painted a bright robins egg blue to match. We kept the flowers in the pink and red family so as not to add too much color to the already colorful decor. A playful, interactive drink bar with mimosa's and the light French Thyme 75 to complement the overall light fare quenched guests thirst. Shots of Żubrówka (buffalo grass vodka) provided an extra kick and good luck to those who drank it (as the tradition goes).

I didn't get a chance to take a picture of the invite before sending it out, but it was designed to again reflect the pisanki and printed on simple white card stock in a variety of bright hues including the coral shown above.
