Throwing the Perfect Garden Party with Flowers

Garden parties are so popular right now.  From Victoria Beckham to the Queen of England, celebrities and the public alike are loving the chic look of wildflowers, natural greenery, and fun accent pieces adorning their parties.  Here are some tips and tricks to throw the perfect garden party with a floral theme.

Bigger is Better

The garden party style is all about the organic look and feel, as if the flowers were “just picked” and growing all around the space.  A fantastic way to complete this look is grouping fun greenery like cocculus, eucalyptus, and ruscus around tables and chairs.  For a more dramatic look, try draping greenery on a mantle or outside trellis, as well as welcome signs and fun photo spots.

Choose the Right Blooms

For the garden party vibe, choose flowers that would naturally grow in your area.  That “just picked” style can be achieved with hydrangea, ranunculus, daisies, or peonies.  The lighter, pastel blooms create an upscale and gentle look, perfect for an English garden themed party.  Flowers with a pleasant and fragrant aroma, such as lilies and roses, can quickly fill a room and brighten your guests mood instantaneously.

Adorn Yourself

Another fun way to add even more flowers to your garden party is to wear them! Of course corsages of sweetheart roses and wildflowers are popular, but think outside of the box.  Decorate a hat with big blooms like peonies, or try a daisy chain or flower crown.  Your guests will also love taking home such a fun, wearable floral accessory to keep the party going.

The most important part about throwing a garden party is of course the actual garden! Choose a venue with a beautiful outside view, a nature park, or your own backyard! All the added flowers will be sure to give your party that extra special flair, and Matlack Florist is always there to help you along the way.
