There are some things in life that are just right. Parties in your garden are one of those things in life that are just right. Of course, one or two things need to be in place in order for the party to work. The weather has to be good: you have no control over this. The guests have to be right: you mostly have control over this. The garden decorations have to be spot on: you have complete control over this.
Of course there is a great deal of choice as far as garden party decorations go. Much of what you do is down to your preference. A bit of inspiration never goes amiss, though, does it? So here are my five top garden party decoration ideas.
1. Make Your Garden an Extension of Your Home with Your Garden Furniture
Garden furniture says something about you. You can, of course, invest in new garden furniture for a particularly important party (and it is an investment). However, you do not have to splash out. An alternative is to demonstrate your creative side and renovate the furniture you already have. By renovating your furniture yourself you are putting a bit more of you into your garden. Another good thing about renovating is that you are extending the life of much loved furniture without changing it drastically.
2. Hire a Marquee
There are several reasons why you might want to hire a marquee. You can not guarantee the weather will be kind to you so a marquee allows you to remain outside (well sort of) whatever the weather.
What you might want to do, however, is use your marquee for staging something just a bit special and different. Why not use your marquee as your own movie theater for the night. An alternative is to hire some live acts to come and perform for you. Your guests will just love it.
A third alternative is to get your guests involved. You could, for example, invite them to a talent contest where they are the talent. Those who are not too keen on performing can just be part of the audience.
3. A Centerpiece with a Difference
If you are dining at table you will want a centerpiece for your table. Traditionally centerpieces are made from flowers. However, why not be different? Try using a flowerpot and fill it with fresh fruits. If you use citrus fruits like lemons and oranges the bright colors will stand out beautifully. Why not have several centerpieces?
4. Create a Unique Place to Eat and Rest
Here is a great idea to add another bit of you to your garden. Choose a spot where you can place your dining table under a canopy. Make the canopy out of fabrics that you choose. It could be a sunshade made out of curtains. Your guests will find it relaxing and different.
5. Get Yourself A Summerhouse
A summerhouse is one of the most versatile additions you can get for your garden. It is great for summer dining when the sun goes down and it is just a little cooler. Alternatively, you can use it to shade you from the heat of the day.
A summer house is not just a summerhouse. It is also a place for the kids to play; for you to use as a home office or study or a bit of a man pad or beauty salon.
It is true that there are some things over which you do not have control; however, how you decorate your garden is not one of those things. You are restricted only by your own imagination.
