Envision your place with much bloom and have it brimming with vibrant colours all around, from plants to tableware. Don't be afraid to be playful, mix different hues for your cutlery and linens. Colours that usually clash won't matter in a garden party (and might even work beautifully) so don't be afraid to be playful.
If your party is in the morning, afternoon, or evening, hanging decors should be an essential. From banners to string lights, these will add a more festive vibe to your event. For a whimsical atmosphere, try taking out your vintage (or antique-inspired) furniture and ornaments. If you have kids, do a movie night or for that summer vacation feel, bring out your inflatable pool!
Since it is an outdoor party, always remember how unpredictable the weather can be. Provide blankets with the chairs for a chilly night or a tent if the sun is too hot or for any sudden rains.
To enhance the alfresco ambience, you can try grilling meat or fish for the main course, complemented with a fresh salad and squeezed juice. If you're imagining a dinner party where your guests can mingle, set up a buffet table with tiered stands or do a Korean barbecue night and get everyone to enjoying cooking while socialising.
If it's an all-adult party, topping it all off with a gin and tonic in the summer, served with edible flowers and herbs will surely be a show-stopper.
