Planning Garden Parties–Vibrant Colors and Decoration Ideas for Grownups and Kids Alike!
When most people think of garden parties, they think of a time in the past. Women strolling in long dresses through beautifully manicured gardens. Historically, a garden party would have been what most people envision, and more, involving things like playing outdoor sports, roaming about the lawns and gardens of the homeowner, and enjoying tea and some light afternoon treats.
There are many ways you can create a modern garden party enjoyable for adults and children. Here are three easy tips to follow to help your garden party be a success:
1) Pick a color theme that is strong and vibrant, and is easily accented by the outdoors. For example, choose strong hues of red, yellow, or blue, which are easy to find in a variety of flowers, giving your party a sophisticated feel. These colors also look great and stand out against the natural greens found in the outdoors.
2) Carry your theme color into subtle parts of the decor, such as the table linens, serving trays, cocktail napkins, and any party games you might include. Games that are easily altered to include your color theme are ones that include water balloons, or games like ring toss or bean bag toss style games. Adults will notice that the party looks uniform and pulled together, and children will enjoy the fun pops of color everywhere.
3) Include the main color of the theme in your food and drinks as well. You want to keep the food easy to eat, and light if you are trying to keep with a traditional afternoon garden party. Lemonade with colored ice cubes, decorated sugar cookies, petit fours with colored icing or miniature flowers featured around your garden party are great ways of pulling the outdoor features of your festivities in with the culinary aspects.
