You just finished your backyard remodeling project, and now it’s time to show it off. What better way to do that than to invite your friends and family over for a garden party? Whether you go all out and put up canopies daytime feting, or string up some party lights for a nighttime soiree, you can create the perfect garden party with minimal effort.
Bring the Outdoors In
Why limit your decorating to just the outside? Why not bring some of the outdoors in? If people will be walking through your house to get to your outdoor party, you will want some al fresco ambience inside. Start with a few vertical hanging garden pieces that you can leave up year round, if you choose. You don’t need many supplies, and it won’t take as long as you think. For full instructions, go here.
You can also pot some of your fresh-grown spices in mason jars and hang them on the wall. This project might take a little more effort, but it’s not only decorative, it’s functional, too.
Get Your Juice On
Juicing is not only a growing health trend, it’s also a way to provide your guests with something refreshing on a hot summer day. Start with some of your favorite fruits and vegetables, and pick recipes you think your guests will enjoy. If you have a color theme, choose ingredients that will produce a juice in that color, and use it as a focal point of your party. You can put the juice in mason jars or glass pitchers for aesthetic effect.
Up Your Planter Game
Putting your garden above ground is a way to bring attention to something specific in your backyard. Up your planter game by elevating your container vegetables or flowers and creating a decorative display using old hangers, plastic pots and spray paint.
Set Up a Drink Station
Turn an old desk into a drink station for your garden party. Your guests will love being able to mix their own beverages, while having the option to spike or not. You can use a snow cone machine for ice needs (and snow cones!), or line a basket with a decorative plastic tablecloth and fill it with ice.
And once your garden party is over and you’re ready for your next digging project, give Texas811 a call!
