Choosing to have a party in the garden is a good way to gather in this time of social distancing, and even a party in the garden could use some favors and decor! Although a garden party will utilize the flowers in your garden, they don’t have to be your only decoration. If you’re stumped on what other sorts of decorations to use, don’t worry, there are many themes to choose from. Here are some garden party favor and decor tips to welcome your guests and help them enjoy themselves.
Garden Party Favor Ideas
1. Gardening Tools
Give your guests mini gardening tools as a thank you for coming! To keep it fun and colorful you can give them kids versions of garden tools found at most children’s toy stores and convenience stores.
Why not give your guests the chance to plant their own garden? Give your guests seeds as a thank you for coming to your party! You can give out a variety of seeds, or keep it simple with just one type. This flowery favor will help remind them of your party for a long time!
3. Gift Basket
A small basket decorated with vines and flowers can be a fun favor for your guests. You can have small treats and candy on hand for them to fill their baskets or they can just use it as a beautiful theme décor basket!
4. Bird Feeders
Birds are often one of the favorite parts of being in the garden. To encourage birds to visit your guests’ gardens, give your guests small bird feeders to take home.
Floral scented candles are a perfect gift to give to your guests! Another great idea is a flower-shaped candle. Candles are a beautiful gift that will help your guests remember the party long after it ends.
6. Mini Plants
Another party favor you could send home with your guests is a miniature plant! These are normally smaller plants that come in mini pots. This will allow your guests to take the garden into their own homes. Most home improvement stores have inexpensive miniature plants.
7. Fruits and Vegetables
Give your guests some homegrown fruits and vegetables to take home from your party. To make it more special, provide fruits and vegetables grown in your own garden!
Garden Party Favor Decors
Hanging a canopy in your garden will create a seating area and give the garden a special feel. Plan the seating in a shaded area to keep the guests cool and comfortable.
Outdoor fairy lights can add a bit of twinkle to your garden party! You can hang these from the canopy, in the trees, or lay them on the bushes. A little bit of magical light can create a mood for an evening garden party.
Bright tablecloths can help your tables blend in with the beautiful flowers in your garden. Try to utilize colors that are already present in your garden, for example, if you have many pink and yellow flowers, use pink and yellow tablecloths.
12. Cushioned Benches
If you would like to provide seating for your guests to socialize with their friends, benches are a great option. When choosing this option, using bright colored cushions on the benches can make them more comfortable and charming!
Do you have any large stones in your garden? These can easily be turned into a decoration! If you spray paint these rocks red and let them dry, you can then put black spots all over them and give them little faces! Now you have large ladybug decorations! They’ll look just like the little creature you come across while gardening. This could also be an enjoyable activity for your guests.
If your garden isn’t already full of flowers, drape it in flowers! You can put them on the tables, the chairs, everywhere! If your garden is already overflowing with flowers, try adding different colors and varieties or even flower potpourri!
