How to throw the ultimate Palm Royale party

If there is one word to sum up Palm Beach in the ’60s, it is opulence. Between its idyllic beaches and perfectly manicured country clubs, this little town on Florida’s eastern coast has long been known as an epicenter of high society.

This is the world in which Palm Royale, the latest new show catapulting to the forefront of TV discourse, takes place. And if you, like us, have found yourself daydreaming about sitting poolside fully bedecked in pink-and-green Lilly Pulitzer pieces, we’re here to tell you how to bring all that Palm Beach luxuriousness to your own backyard.

How to throw the ultimate Palm Royale party

1. The invitation

Make sure the preppy vibes are clear from a perfectly selected invitation. Our personal pick? This palm frond invitation is giving absolute Palm Beach perfection with its color palette and tropical leaves. And if you want your guests to dress up à la your party’s namesake show, be sure to let them know in your Event Details!

2. The outfits

If you’re at a loss, just remember this: Pink and green reign supreme throughout preppy fashion, as do bold florals and paisleys. Opt for silky, patterned beach coverups and dresses in retro silhouettes. Accessorize with big pearls, 1960s-inspired sunglasses and a colorful headband or headscarf. Basically, if your ’fit gives poolside country club vibes, you’re doing something right.

3. The party setup

To curate the perfect vibe, mix vibrant colors like pink, blue, green and bright white with bold, beachy patterns. Grab a couple of artificial plants with big, leafy fronds and place them in every corner. Scatter decorative seashells and starfish across every surface and be sure to go all out with the florals. If you have a pool, fill it with cute floaties like this pink one!

4. The food and drinks

A common thread throughout the show is a certain green cocktail that we personally were shocked to find out is a real thing. Yup, the Grasshopper cocktail is a creamy, minty and classic 1960s cocktail typically enjoyed after dinner. As for food, build a beautiful charcuterie board full of colorful fruits and decadent cheeses to encapsulate that boujee, beachy feeling. Patterned napkins like these pink striped ones can help tie the whole theme together, too!

5. The activities 

We’re going for true 1960s high-society vibes here, and while setting up a full-on golf course in your house might be a bit out of the question (unless you’re, like, really ambitious), getting a little game of backgammon going certainly is not. Tennis is also a great option: These pink rackets are adorable and this net can be easily set up in just a few seconds!

What is a signup sheet?

Signup sheets are the perfect way to streamline scheduling, volunteer recruitment, class parties, snack duty, potluck organization, parent-teacher conferences and more! You can think of them as your digital assistant for coordinating events and tasks and ensuring that your event is a success.

Evite SignUp Sheets offers parents, teachers and event planners customizable online forms that organizers and volunteers can access and update effortlessly. Volunteers can choose their preferred time slots, sign up for tasks or indicate what they'll bring to the event. It only takes organizers a few minutes to create a signup sheet and send it out with a shareable link, so they can get the word out via text, email or social media—whichever way they prefer! 

Long story short, signup sheets save everyone involved tons of time, avoid scheduling headaches and ensure everything runs smoothly before and during the event.

How do I create a signup sheet?

Creating a signup sheet has never been easier than with Evite! Here’s how to create a sheet that’s sure to make your event an absolute success:

  1. Go to Evite SignUp Sheets and choose the template that best fits your needs. Evite offers multiple signup sheet templates perfect for every occasion, including:some text
    • Signup sheets for standalone events (without different time slots), perfect for when you’re organizing a class party, potluck or end-of-season party.
    • Signup sheets for recurring or multi-day events (without different time slots), perfect for when you’re organizing a meal train, post-game snack duty or during appreciation week.
    • Signup sheets for single or multiple day events (with time slots), perfect for when you’re organizing concession stand volunteers, fundraisers and parent-teacher conferences.
  1. After selecting your sheet template, create a title for your signup sheet and add the date, the location, the time (if applicable), who the organizer is, the organizer’s phone number or email and an optional note describing the event to your volunteers. You can also change your signup sheet background and title image if you wish!
  1. Next, create slots for your signup sheet. If you aren’t logged into your account, you will need to do so at this point, but luckily, you can use your existing Evite account (no need to create yet another login!). What you’ll include here will depend on what your event needs, but you can include a list of what’s needed (along with optional descriptions), how many volunteers are needed, and dates and times.
  1. After creating your slots, you can then add a wish list from any retailer or include supply suggestions from Evite’s retailer partners. These are to help your volunteers find and purchase supplies quickly and easily.
  1. Finally, review your sheet, copy your shareable link and send it out to everyone on your list! Every time a volunteer signs up for a slot on your signup sheet, Evite will email you. We will also send reminders to you and your volunteers before your event so no one will forget about it, and we’ll even let volunteers know if you remove their slot or cancel your event sheet so you don’t have to!

What information should be included on a signup sheet?

When it comes to signup sheet information, there are some essentials to include regardless of what you’re organizing:

  1. A title for your signup sheet. Tip: Aim to keep your signup sheet title concise but clear. You want volunteers to read it and have a general understanding of what your event is about, and also make it easy for them to look for later if they need to reference your sheet again. You have the option to include a more descriptive note in a different field about your event, so save the more in-depth details for that!
  1. When and where the event is taking place. 
  1. The organizer’s name and phone number.
  1. Slots for volunteers to choose from. Once you choose the SignUp Sheets template that fits the occasion, the slots you’ll need for your sheet will be right there and ready for you to add the relevant info, such as dates, times, items to bring and tasks to complete. 

When adding your slot information, clearly define what people are signing up for, especially for a what-to-bring list or role assignments. If you want someone to bring healthy snacks for kids to enjoy after a game, specify that. You want your volunteers to feel confident in what they’re bringing and to make it easy for them to know what’s expected of them. It will save them time and stress (and you, too!). That being said, if you make your ask too specific (for example, asking for a hard-to-source item or something expensive), you may not end up with a volunteer for it. So be clear about what you expect, but also be reasonable!

Aside from providing the basic signup information, you can also add optional descriptions to both your entire signup sheet and individual slots. While not required, they can help guide your volunteers further and provide more information. You can add information about allergies, preferences and general info about the event. You can also add a wish list to make it easier for your volunteers to bring exactly what you need!

What are the benefits of using a signup sheet template?

Signup sheet templates offer a ton of advantages for both organizers and volunteers and with Evite SignUp Sheets, you'll enjoy even more benefits than other digital and paper signup sheets! Some benefits our signup sheet templates offer include:

  • A 100% free experience (no subscriptions required!).
  • Shareable links for quick and easy sharing.
  • No need to create another login—you can use your existing Evite account.
  • The option to add a wish list to help your volunteers out.
  • Automatic reminders—we’ll remind everyone on your behalf.

With Evite SignUp Sheets, you can enjoy organizing and coordinating all your events with ease. Signup sheets streamline the signup process for everyone involved, ensuring that everything will go to plan on the day of your event while saving you precious time in the process.
