Petal Theme Party: 35 Creative Ideas

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

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. Sugared Rose Petals 

A glistening sprinkle of sugar, egg whites, and water are all you need to make these stunning edible petals (just double-check they are non-toxic). The rest is up to you! Top them on cakes, cookies, or these Rose-and-Ginger Cupcakes. The intoxicatingly sweet scent, the soft colors, and (of course) the ambiance of romance.

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. Vintage Petal Cones

Decorate your home by perching the cones in hatboxes or fashion-themed cardboard boxes and cylinders. Fill paper cones with petals and add fragrance and whimsy to your home. Making them out of pages from 1950s fashion magazines brings a touch of vintage glamour to your home. Look for vintage perfume or toiletry advertisements with colorful hues and women in fashionable hats and outfits. Glue the banner to the center of a cone and fill them with petals. 

7. Pickled Rose Petals

Don’t be fooled: pickling your petals boosts their floral fragrance and brings out their sweet taste. It’s anything but impractical! From there, sprinkle them onto salads and healthy snacks like our Beets and Yogurt with Pickled Rose Petals.

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!

14. Cookies 

Make or purchase several flower-shaped cookies and place a few in cellophane bags for your guests.

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.

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!

24. Paint

Give each of your guests a plain flower pot or watering can and plenty of paints to decorate them with at your parties.
