Garden Party Ideas:
Have A Sangria Bar
Sangria is the perfect fruity drink for an outdoor occasion. Having a sangria bar with different fruit options provides guests with a good selection.
Hang String Lights
String lights are one of the simplest ways to decorate an outdoor space. They provide soft lighting for when the sun goes down. String lights always look cute, and are relatively inexpensive. Check out these inexpensive string lights for a classy garden party look.
Drink “Fancy” Fruity Cocktails
Another amazing thing to include at your garden party is a fruity cocktail. Make it “fancy” by garnishing with an herb sprig and a splash of fruit juice for color. Fresh fruit slices will also make the drink pop and add a refreshing element.
Create A Grazing Table
One of my all time favorite ideas for a garden party is the grazing table. This way you can implement various items for people of all dietary considerations. It’s super easy to slap together and with some herbs and flowers mixed in looks very put together.
Decorate With Herb Bouquets
Herb bouquets are such an organic and aromatic way to lighten up your garden party. The pop of fresh green will add an actual garden elementto your party. Herbs are also significantly less expensive than any other type of floral bouquet you can purchase.
Make It A Picnic
Making it a picnic is a fun way to bring casualty to the event. I love the idea of low tables with cushions on the ground, so everyone can sit together. Cute patterned blankets and towels can add that Cottagecore element to your garden party.
Create A “Dress Code”
This is something that definitely doesn’t have to be enforced. Having a dress code will help your guests decide what to wear. Nice floral sundresses will really help tie in the feel of the outdoor spring/summer vibe.
Play Lawn Games
The best way to keep guests entertained and engaged is to set up lawn games. Horseshoe, corn hole, croquet, you name it. It definitely wouldn’t feel like a garden party without some sort of lawn game.
Make and Hang Dried Citrus
One of the simplest and least expensive ways to add a pop of color to your party is to make your own dried citrus. This is simple to do by drying sliced citrus in the oven then weaving the slices through twine. Everyone is going to be asking about this type of decor.
Decorate With Lots Of FLowers
Bring a cutesy feel to your party by decorating with lots of flowers. Trader Joe’s always has a good selection where you can mix and match your own bouquets for a great price. Use lots of Baby’s Breath, Daisys, Sunflowers etc.
