Nothing says spring like a garden party.
What better way to celebrate mom, than throwing her very own botanical brunch?
Garden parties don't require an outdoor garden...with our fast and easy tips and trends you can create a gorgeous setting right inside your home.
Trend 1: Flowering Plants.
Set the table in style with locally grown, beautiful blooming plants - a long lasting, easy care floral centerpiece. So many flowering plants inside your local florist, grocery and more are American Grown, on family farms that have been passed down two, three, even four generations. Sold in pots with soil, roots, etc they last for months with a little TLC, water and indirect sunshine. How easy is that?
Kalanchoe, shown here, come in many bright, spring colors and are as easy to display as placing into a pretty pot or vase, and covering any exposed dirt ontop the vase with sheet moss.
Trend 2: Colorful vintage glassware.
Nothing brings brunch for a bunch to life like mix and match glassware. Gone are the days of matchy matchy sets at each placesetting. Today tables pop with coordinating, varied looks around the table.
Trend 3: Mixed vases.
Skip the plain glass vases for flowers, and instead open up your cabinets or pantry and pull out favorite family heirlooms and collectibles to use as vessels down the table. Sugar bowls, creamers, juice glasses and more all make for fresh, unique containers for fresh floral blooms.
Trend 4: Party hats.
Nothing says fun like a party hat. The best parties capture beautiful memories with photos of guests having fun as they celebrate - and a chic petite paper party hat helps set the tone for love and laughter.
Party Hat Diy:
Hot glue small silk or paper flowers onto mini party hats for beautiful decor to be enjoyed multiple ways: at each placesetting, dressing the table before guests are seated, and also as wearable fashion decor for guest photos.
Trend 5: Printed Party Details.
The details make the party. From your food to your drink to your floral decor - it's all about celebrating mom and showing off her favorite tastes and style. Create a menu card for each guest, and add butterfly or spring themed stickers to instantly add a pop of color. Watercolor patterns make great patterns on paper, and can be found anywhere on Pinterest. Choose a favorite, handwrite or print your menu on the computer, cut and place at each setting for a styled, elegant touch mom will cherish.
Trend 6: Personal Touches.
Cut out butterfly (or any spring shape) place cards and personalize with each guest's name. Handwritten, even by the kids in their adorable writing with pen or crayon, or printed off with a pretty font onto pretty paper, they are easy to tuck into the fork tines for a whimsical garden vibe.
Trend 7: Sweet Treats.
A beautiful, mini garden cake for each guest is a gorgeous touch. Whether it is a custom cake, or even a simple cupcake topped with a flowery party pick, it's the final cherry ontop your pretty party. Click here to shop Party Picks to top your sweets (and savory).
