Summer is in full bloom and there’s no better way to enjoy the great outdoors than with a delightful garden themed get-together! We here at White Bow Events have rounded up a party palette that is perfect for floral fêtes: creamy off-white, soft dove gray, brilliant chartreuse, and delicate rosette. Using these seasonal colour combinations as guidelines, we’ve pulled together an assortment of inspiration that will elevate even the simplest backyard soiree to the next level.
The key to keeping a garden party fresh is to juxtapose rustic and contemporary elements. Dressing a farm-style wooden table with solid, graphic settings will create an atmosphere that feels intimate and inviting, but that is also clean and modern. Mix in new sleek finishes with antique finds and coarser textures (like hemp sleeves for your silverware) for an extra chic, eclectic feel. For your centerpieces, try a row of vintage lanterns alternating with bouquets of full, fresh pink dahlias.
In terms of recommending a dress code for your guests, suggest bold, bright ensembles—after all, if not now, when?! Give a nod to the theme of your party with a subtle accessory, like a floral printed pair of espadrilles.
Now all that’s left to do is slip into your favourite sunhat and sip on some (spiked?) lemonade—ahh, summer!
