Garden Party Decoration Ideas

1. Moss Centerpiece

Centerpieces are definitely not just a wedding option. They are great additions to the dinner table at any event you’d like to throw. Now, because this is a garden party we’re talking about, why not incorporate part of the garden in the centerpiece? We suggest you fill a planter with soil and then add moss in it, playing with patters and shades. The great thing is that once the party is over, you can plant the moss in your garden.

2. Flower Lights

Here’s a creative idea. Why don’t you buy some string lights and then cover them either with real flowers or with faux ones? If you completely cover the string lights, your guests will wonder how come these flowers shine so bright. Just hang the installation around the house and it will give your garden party an intimate vibe.


If DIY projects are too time consuming, you can buy pre-made flower fairy lights.

3. Bottled Light

Speaking of how to provide your garden party with plenty of light, you could try decorating the tables with glass bottles that you fill with lamp oil and wicks. In order to protect them from the wind, you can get a bigger glass jar and cover them up. We guarantee the installation will both look great and provide your guests with enough light to comfortably eat and drink.
