Perhaps a more monochromatic color palette. Maybe leave Oliver/Jason red and go with beiges/greys for the rest.

I love the over all feel of the card very cute and trendy but my eye gravitates dinner and dancing and it seems out of place, maybe try aligning it with the main type but leave it the fun colors.

I like the unique color combo. I suggest removing the slanted yellow dotted borders. Maybe replacing one of the lower cerulean stripes with the "DINNER & DANCING TO FOLLOW" line.
