Hosting Fantastic Garden Parties

Summer is a great time for parties, no matter what the occasion. Why not plan an outdoor garden party and take advantage of fresh air and green space? If you have spending the spring season planting flowers and vegetables, as well as pruning the landscape, why not show off all that hard work to your guests? A garden has a beautiful natural back drop, and often gardens have unique and interesting spaces. Outdoor dining during the spring, summer and fall seasons can be a great experience, one the whole family can enjoy, especially in a garden setting. Planning the perfect outdoor garden party does not have to be difficult or expensive, it just takes the proper planning.

Creating a comfortable space for your guests can be achieved, no matter the size of your yard or garden, or your budget. Tables, table covers, chairs and more can be found online, both used and new, at reduced prices.

Shop the end of season clearance sales for plastic serving trays, glassware and plastic plates.

Kids especially enjoy dining outside, so consider the little ones when planning the seating. A smaller sized, lower to the ground table and shorter chairs work best for kids. Dress up the children’s table with fun decorations, party favors and treats. Be sure to have a few outdoor games planned to keep them entertained. Be sure all tables sit on level ground! You can also get creative and bring some of the indoors out and use chairs, side tables and blankets and create a living room outside.

It’s important to consider lighting, especially if you are having an evening party. Accent lighting around the landscaping and walkways will add visual interest and help set a festive mood. Large citronella candles will provide light and keep away the bugs. Hanging lanterns and glass tabletop lanterns look pretty and provide additional ambient lighting. In the fall or cooler spring evenings, a fire pit is the perfect way to warm up and provide a place for guests to gather.

Garden parties do not require a lot of decorations. The garden setting should speak for itself; however, adding a few special touches here and there is a nice idea. Hanging a few paper lanterns or light strands to the trees is a nice touch. Chairs could have balloons or paper flowers attached to them.

Showcase your garden space and plan an outdoor garden party this summer!
