My Garden Party Hosting Tips
Host your own garden party at home with these easy tips and tricks!
1. Build Your Flower Arrangement
Trader Joe’s has the best prices on fresh flowers, and they get them by the truckload every morning! Get there early for the best selection! They last up to two weeks! I pick out flowers based on color and shape. I start building my arrangement with the larger blooms at the bottom, and I love using hydrangeas! Then I sprinkle in the medium stems, and in the middle I put the tallest stems and green filler for height. This makes for a well-rounded, large display!
2. Style Your Table
I like using my heirloom silver when I can, but sometimes I switch that up for bamboo flatware! My go-to tablecloth is my blue gingham tablecloth (it doubles as my tree skirt at Christmas!). I like to layer my dishes. I always use my white China pattern (linked on my LIKEtoKNOW.it, and then I change out the tiny accent plate on top based on the occasion! These cut work napkins and bow napkin rings are pretty for anytime!
3. Sprinkle Special Accents
I love to add in matching accents with my blue and white like hand towels, tea towels, and framed art. Here are a few of my favorite home accents to complete the look!
4. Make a Special Drink
Create your own garden party cocktail! Or, choose a cocktail you love, but give it a special name for the party. Mimosas are always lovely for a mid-morning brunch. I suggest Mint Juleps or anything with lemonade or strawberries in the summer afternoon. I love these acrylic drink stirrers by Simply Jessica Marie! They are a garden party essential! Below are some of my favorite glassware and barware!
5. Style Your Bar Cart
Do you have a bar cart? If not, I’m linking some of the cutest bar carts below. I love being able to move a bar cart near the “happening” spot at the party, so that guests can easily refill their special cocktail. Add a pretty, small arrangement to carry your garden party theme throughout your home!
