What better way to celebrate the great British summer sun than throwing a lavish garden party. The summer sun invites you to embrace the outdoors and entertain outside. If you follow my blog regularly, you would know that I hosted a garden party on my blog’s first anniversary. The theme was blue and white vintage tea party. You can read all about it in my previous post here. Here are some pictures from that party.
This year we got a new deck in our garden. Since our house is on a higher level, access to the garden was uneven and with two young kids, I wanted an easy access to the garden. One option was to get a full blown extension done but it was an expensive choice so we opted for a new deck. Now that we have the deck and an easy access to our garden, it has enhanced our experience of being outdoors.
Few weeks back, I hosted an intimate family get together. On this occasion I fully utilised our deck space. I had a garden table where I created the main decorative set up. The central focus of this set up was the flower arrangement. The theme was woodland decor and the flower arrangement fully complemented the theme. Normally for table set ups, I use bouquets but this time I tried something different and it seemed to work fine. The key thing to remember when setting up a party table is to integrate food into your decor. It’s not always easy to integrate food but try using finger foods as decor objects. For my arrangements, I used biscuits, salads and bread sticks as decor pieces.
During summers we have light till 9 pm but most of my garden parties continue beyond that so I used pontoon lights in the background. You can also use fairy lights and lace curtains as your backdrop to create a vintage look and feel.
I hope you enjoyed reading the post and got to see some new decor ideas for your next garden party. If you would like to see more decor-related blog posts, then let me know.
