Flowers for your garden party
From centerpieces to other arrangements, flowers are an incredible and important addition to any garden party. There are many different ways to craft beautiful and unique decorations to fit the theme of your party as well as your existing outdoor space. Whether you want to create a whimsical and fun arrangement or you are looking for a more elegant way to display your flowers, there are plenty of idea on how to do so.
To get started consider the theme and the mood that you want to create. Taking into account factors such as the types of flowers you want to use and your budget, and you can come up with a great plan to display your flowers.
Rather than one large centerpiece, consider utilizing several small bud vases in different shapes and sizes to display single flowers, stems, and leaves. Small bud vases will create a beautiful, romantic display with additional visual interest. Remember to choose flowers within the same color scheme to keep the design from becoming too "busy". Unify the look by arranging bud vases on top of a mirror, platter, or another similar base. This arrangement is a great way to bring delicacy and elegance to a floral arrangement and is perfect for a traditional look with a contemporary twist.
On the flip side, reduce the visual impact of the vase and bring more attention to the flowers themselves by choosing a small, round vase that can hold a lot of flowers. A shallow vase can hide among the flowers in the arrangement. This arrangement a great way to display a more extravagant look while maintaining an elegant, natural appearance.
For a beautiful, contemporary look, choose clear glass containers for your floral arrangements and fill them with natural elements. Sliced limes or lemons bring in a splash of color (and the natural aroma will help to bring a pleasant atmosphere to your garden party, as well). Simply choose two glass containers of differing sizes. The first vase contains the flowers while the fruit slices fill the additional space between the first and second vase.
Those of a craftier nature can easily design vases, pots, and other ways to display flowers. Flower pots can be painted with chalk paint and decorated (either by yourself or by kids) for a fun and whimsical touch. Metal containers such as watering cans make for a shabby chic arrangement that is as adorable as it is affordable. Even a simple coffee can is perfect for an arrangement when decorated with twigs, sticks, or even clothespins. Unfinished wood helps bring a more natural feel to an arrangement that is the perfect touch for any outdoor space. Even old, painted tires can make a great, fun way to display flowers. Experiment with different options and different ways of decorating. Paint or colorful tape could be used to craft beautiful designs.
