To get inspiration and ideas for a garden party decoration,
grab everything that lasted from the last garden party you did and all the materials you have available right now and put it all together on a table. Looking at it all will sparkle some new ideas for the garden party decoration.
Lots of materials can be reused for party decorations.
This way you will spend less money and will also be helping the environment. Left over paper napkins, that will not be enough for this party, can be used as little color flags on shrubs or to cover food plates.
In a garden party planning, it might be helpful to choose a garden party theme.
Some ideas for themes: a color, a movie, a book, a season, an animal, a number (someone age or a date for instance), a flower, a character (from a book, TV series or movie), day/night, small/big, a period in time… let your creativity spill over.
Seating is a major key for a garden party.
If you don’t have enough chairs for everyone, use pillows, blankets over the grass (a favorite with kids), big clay pots turned upside down… not only will you get more seating places but it will also contribute to the decoration.
Don’t forget to count plants and flowers as garden party decorations.
Pots and garden planters can be moved to a different place to have more impact on the party decoration or out of the way if more free space is needed.
Use aromatic herbs in garden planters or pots.
Move it to be near to the place where people will be seated, so they can enjoy their fragrance. Quick tip: water the plants near the party and the fragrance will be stronger.
Use decorations on the trees, big plants, doors, walls, windows, chairs, tables… every place goes.
