Ideas for a Garden Party

A Garden Party – is there a better way to celebrate the warm weather? This is a perfect theme for a shower, birthday or just as an excuse for friends to get together. It can be simple and elegant, or down on the ground dirty – the choice is yours but the fun is guaranteed!

Garden Party Invitations
There are all sorts of invitation options for you. If you want something bright and colorful, choose a personalized invitation bursting with flowers from Party411. Contemporary or traditional, whatever style you like!

Buy seed packages of your favorite flowers and turn them into invitations. Print the party information on a fun label and adhere it to the package. Mail them in a coordinating envelope and it becomes a double treat for your guests – an invitation to a party and seeds to plant in the garden.

For a sweet invitation that everyone will love, send a candy bar in a personalized wrapper from Party 411. Milk or dark chocolate, a floral wrapper with the party information printed on it is a unique and delicious way to announce your festivities.

Garden Party Table Decorations and menu
A Garden Party is great because decorating can be simple and reasonable – what a fabulous combination! Assuming the weather cooperates, your Garden Party should be outside of course. Beautiful garden party paper goods will set a beautiful table.

Need more garden party ideas? Flowers are a natural choice for centerpieces. Fresh cut flowers in a variety of vases or small potted plants like geraniums are always a good choice. Or set out a few daisy flowers. For a more informal look, fill flower pots with gardening supplies like a trowel, seeds, watering can even some gummy worms. You can use them as party favors when the event is over.

Balloons can be a fun and economical way to decorate. Tie bunches of pastel colored balloons together and use a bag of sand covered in colorful paper as a weight. Place the balloons in a flowerpot and fill the pot with shredded tissue paper. Maybe a few more gummy worms could be crawling out of the pot too?

A Garden Party is usually held in the afternoon so you’re menu can be ve simple. Your guest will love small sandwiches, a variety of salads and desserts like brownies, lemon squares and cookies. Create a special Garden Party punch for the occasion. Ginger ale (or champagne) mixed with sherbet is always a favorite.

Like the flowers and plants, your guests will need water too. Bottled spring water with personalized water bottle labels are just the thing for your party. Keep your look consistent and choose the same or a complimentary design to the one you used for your invitation or candy bar.

Garden Party Entertainment
Depending on your crowd, there are all sorts of entertainment possibilities. If you are having a garden club meeting (or you are just serious gardeners) invite a guest speaker. Pick someone who is an expert in flower arranging or exotic plants. Everyone will be delighted to learn something new!

Party games are always fun. No one is ever too old to play charades or even a trivia game based on garden and flower facts. How about flower pens as prizes? Or even flower bulbs, seeds, or a gift certificate the to local garden center?

You can even put your guests to work at your party. Have them help plant your garden or, and this would be truly special, if there’s a community garden nearby, they can help plant that one. Turning your party into a service project will make it even more meaningful.
