You’ll be surprised to learn that your garden is not only a place where you can practice your planting skills or where you go to relax after a long workweek.
A great way to throw a party is by hosting it in your garden. Your guests will enjoy socializing and dancing in the fresh air.
Decorate with Flowers
You can improve the look of your garden by adding a few more pots with beautiful plants and vases with decoration flowers. Pick out a colour theme for your flowers. Consider warm colours like orange, yellow and red for an exciting aesthetic or cooler colours like white and blue for a softer ambiance. Play around with the heights of the flowers to avoid a repetitive layout. It’ll keep your scenery dynamic and interesting. Orchids can add a luxurious touch to your garden party. A few lilies and roses here and there will give a more romantic feel.
Mix & Match Cocktail Bar
A mix & match cocktail bar is the best way to get your party started. Every guest can create their own cocktails using the ingredients you offer. Make sure you have citrus juice, sparkly water, homemade syrups, gin, vodka, and tequila. Also offer some natural ingredients like mint, lavender, rosemary, and cilantro. Your guests will enjoy playing around with various aromas to make that perfect cocktail.
Place a few vases with orchids and lavender on your cocktail bar to make it more tempting. If you don’t want to purchase a bar for your party, think about renting one out for the day. Go online and search for mobile bar hire from Feast It. The solution is at your fingertips.
Dress Up Your Ice Bucket
What’s a party without ice? Especially during the summertime. Turn your ice bucket into a magnificent display of flower petals and place it on the floor next to the cocktail bar. You’ll integrate the beauty of your garden arrangement with the functionality of the ice bucket. Your guests will be pleasantly surprised to see the ice is hiding inside an amazing bouquet of flowers.
Put Lavender in Your Cocktails
Lavender is a great ingredient to spice up any cocktail. Its purple colour and exquisite taste will give your drinks that extra spark. Mix in lavender with vodka and a bit of Japanese whiskey, along with some Gin Mare and you’ve got a perfect summer drink. For a fresh feel add lavender to a vodka, aloe and lemon drink. It’ll shoot up the taste buds of your guests.
Create a Sign Out of Foliage
Use the leaves that have fallen on your garden’s floor or pick out some off the trees. You can create a welcome sign and place it in front of your garden’s gates. Paint a hexagonal piece of cardboard in green and yellow colours and create a welcoming message using the leaves for letters. Spell out messages such as Join the Fun or Let’s Have A Blast to instantly get your guests into a party mood.
Wrapping It Up
An outdoor party is a great way to entertain your friends and benefit from the great garden you’re always taking care of. With these few tricks up your sleeve, you’re on your way to throwing the Garden Party of the Year!
