How to Host a Garden Party
1. Decide on a color scheme and stick to it. This will ensure that youroverall design is cohesive. We kept everything in shades of blues and white.
2. A great way to brighten up any space is with fresh flowers. There are times when I like to create a really uniform look, using only a couple different varieties of flowers in a single shade. We only used dahlias, peonies and gloriosa flowers.
3. A cute, inexpensive way to make your guests feel super special is to hand out colored wine goblets so it instantly feels like you are at a party.
4. Use soft colored dishes so that the design elements and overall color scheme can take center stage. We also added these gorgeous white and gold chargers to add depth to the tables. The pattern was the perfect texture to add to the desired aesthetic.
5. A fun way to dress up napkins is with fresh stamped logos of the couples initials.
