How to Transform your Space for Outdoor Parties
Looking for great garden party ideas this summer? From table settings to twinkling lights to decorations, there are countless ways to make your party the best ever.
Warm nights are here, but throwing a garden party takes a lot of preparation if you want it to be an unforgettable night. Before you start shopping for decorations and preparing a tasty menu, make a plan of action.
Will your party be a low-key gathering or a sit-down meal? Once you've decided what type of garden party you want to host, it's time to start planning.
• First, choose a topic
From the color palette to the flower arrangements, this will make gathering supplies easy. You can have a garden party in any outdoor space, so don't be put off if you have a porch. With a few tweaks and a slightly condensed guest list, you can make it work for you!
• Decide what areas you want to decorate
For example, do you want to expand your front yard decorations? Or do you just have time to decorate your patio?
• Make a list of everything you need
Such as lighting, napkins, or seat cushions. See if you can borrow items from your friends to cut costs. It may be tempting to go overboard, but garden parties really do give you a chance to get creative and do your own thing.
"Save the jam jars and fill them with wildflowers," suggests Bethan Harwood, partner, and home design stylist at John Lewis. Or try making gift wrap bunting and old fabric swatches to strengthen your color scheme.
Garden Party Decorations
There is so much pleasure in garden dates, especially since so many loved ones have been apart for so long. If you have the privilege of having your own garden or any type of outdoor space, maximize it to its full summer potential.
Decorations are a great starting point, especially those that can be pinned quickly (think pennants, paper lanterns, and long garlands). Depending on how creative you are, you can make it yourself or buy them ready to hang (shop our favorites below).
For larger decorations, spice up your garden party by putting your hands on a wall of donuts, a fun-filled photo booth, a garden bar, or games like the giant JENGA.
Although highly dependent on the size of your space, they will make every garden as welcoming as possible. Other garden party decorating ideas include trendy balloon arches, drinking stations (like "your Prosecco" bowls), and flower walls. It can be tempting to go overboard, but just pick your favorites to lead.
After decorating the basics, you can really play with other element layers. Jars filled with flowers always look great placed near the front door, while a box of sparkling wine for guests to enjoy in the evening is sure to be a treat.
And another Garden Party Tip ... Hang empty wine or beer bottles with beautiful flowers on a tree for a unique focus.
