A petal theme party is the perfect floral theme for the spring or summer season. A great idea is to choose a color, such as orange or pink, and centralize your theme around it by decorating with petals and other items of that color. These theme party ideas are also fantastic for a bridal shower, baby shower, Mother’s Day, or Valentine’s Day! We’ve put a list of some fantastic ideas that we think will help you get started on planning your petal-theme party!
Petal Theme Party Decorations
1. Beautiful Flowers
Decorate the party area with beautiful flower arrangements. If you are following a color scheme, match the flowers to these colors. Use elegant vases to hold these and tie a ribbon to each vase to complete your flower party supply.
2. Petal Pictures
Hang pictures of flowers and petals around the room. This will create a relaxed and calm atmosphere that your guests will find very pleasant. Put your guests to the test by asking them to name each flower in every picture! An idea is to match your flower arrangements to these lovely pictures. Everyone at the party will enjoy looking at the matching pictures and arrangements!
3. Sweet Aromas
Set the mood by lighting floral-scented candles. These will create a tranquil ambiance and swirl some sweet smells around the room. Be sure to pick scents that are related to flowers such as lavender, lilac, and rose. These scents are sure to make your guests blossom with excitement!
4. Floral Leis
Decorate the room with floral leis. Make streamers out of these by tying several of them together and dangling them from the ceiling or walls. You can also supply your guests with them to wear during the party!
5. Petal Bowls
Use shallow bowls or vases as petal decorations! All you have to do is fill them with water and pour some colorful petals in so that they float above the surface. For your blossom supplies, you can either use real petals or purchase some that are made out of plastic or fabric.
6. Petal Centerpieces
Fill empty flower vases or jars with lovely flower petals. Using these as centerpieces is a great way of brightening up your tables! Add a ribbon around the vases to add extra color! You can buy supplies for these centerpieces at your local florist or art supply store.
7. Petal Streamers
Purchase some petals that are made of fabric. Use a needle to thread these through a strand of ribbon or string. Once you have added enough to this strand, dangle this streamer from your walls or ceilings for beautiful flower decorations!
Petal Party Favors
8. Florist Specials
Provide your guests with a personalized gift card to their favorite florist. This favor will be a huge hit among your guests because they will love to pick out some beautiful flowers for their home!
9. Sweet Scents
Give your guests some scented candles that they can light in their own homes! Purchase scents that smell like flowers, such as lavender, lilac, and rose. You can also give your guests a preview of these wonderful scents by using similar ones at your party. You can also use the candle prizes for a game!
10. Name That Flower
In order to familiarize your guests with the different kinds of flowers in the world, give them a flower book that will provide information about each one! Make sure this book gives a brief description of each flower as well as where they can be found. Perhaps you may want to purchase books that only name flowers in a certain country or state such as your own.
11. Fresh Flower Arrangements
While you will most likely decorate the party area with some fresh bouquets, you can also give bouquets to your guests to take home. Add ribbon to each arrangement in order to keep the flowers together, as well as provide extra décor!
12. Lollipop Flowers
Make lollipop flowers by threading heart-shaped pieces of cardstock or tissue paper onto lollipop sticks to look like petals. Display them in a flowerpot and have your guests take one as they leave.
13. Flower Pots
Fill small flower pots with a mix of small candies for your guests to take home. Try some for decoration that will end up looking unique like this product!
Make or purchase several flower-shaped cookies and place a few in cellophane bags for your guests.
15. Indoor Garden
Give your guests the tools they need for their own indoor garden by giving them a small flower pot as well as seeds for indoor flowers.
Petal Theme Party Games
16. Aim For My Heart
This game is great for children’s parties. Cut a heart out of red or pink construction paper and place it on the ground. Have the children take turns standing on a step stool while they try to drop rose petals onto the heart below.
You can either use real flower petals for this or just purchase some that are made out of fabric. Every time a child is able to drop a petal onto the heart, they receive a point! The child that has the most points at the end of the game wins!
17. Lovely Bouquets
This game is a way of teaching your guests how to arrange a beautiful bouquet. Just have several flowers ready and let your guests begin arranging! Give a prize to the guest who can create the best arrangement!
18. Smell Me!
Prepare different kinds of flowers and store them all in a brown paper bag so they can’t be seen by your guests. Ask guests to take turns being blindfolded while they smell each flower and try to guess what type of flower it is!
19. Paper Flowers
Show your guests how to make floral arrangements by only using construction paper and pipe cleaners! Use colored construction paper to make origami flowers. Then, stick pipe cleaners to the end of these so they serve as stems! You can even get creative and make a bee for your flower!
20. Nature Stroll
Take your guests on a walk through some flower fields. Point out all the lovely flowers you find and try to name them all. Bring booklets along so you and your friends can write down all the plants you see and where they are located.
21. What’s My Name?
Prepare cards with pictures of various kinds of flowers. Ask your guests to take turns trying to name each flower on the cards! The person who correctly names the most flowers wins! Make these activities extra exciting by dividing your guests into teams!
22. Watering Can Relay
Divide the players into teams and give each team several full watering cans. Set several large buckets across from the teams, one for each player. Each player should run their watering can to their bucket and fill it up before returning to their team. Use confetti instead of water to play this game inside. Get creative with what flowering cans you decide to go with!
23. Dana likes Daffodils
Set up all of the players in a circle for these activities. Have the first player begin by stating his or her name and a flower that begins with the same letter as their name. The second player does the same but also repeats the first player’s statement.
For instance, the first player could say, “My name is Dana and I like daffodils,” and the second player would say “My name is Christina and I like chrysanthemums and she is Dana who likes daffodils.” Keep going until everyone runs out of ideas!
Give each of your guests a plain flower pot or watering can and plenty of paints to decorate them with at your parties.
Petal Party Food
25. Pineapple Flowers
Cut pineapple slices in the shape of flowers. This can easily be done by peeling the pineapple first. Once this is done, cut it into thin slices.

Serve these masterpieces on a platter for your guests to admire and devour!
