Outdoor Garden Party

This post is brought to you by TIKI® brand. All opinions are 100% my own!

Ok, let’s talk Outdoor Themed Parties here for a minute, shall we? Themed parties are loads of fun! But moving the party outdoors can add some unpredictable and often, more complicated issues to the party planning. For example: temperature, lighting, bugs, shade, uneven surfaces, dirt, wind, rain, seating, to name a few.

One of my favorite casual party themes is a simple Garden Party.

 This is a no-fuss theme for me because we live in a humid and very green state {Virginia}. So our backyard offers plenty of pretty backdrops and the perfect setting for an outdoor garden party.


tiki-gardenI place a few potted plants and flowers around the yard and add seating in several nooks in our backyard.

The food and drinks are simple and easy and I can coordinate the paperware and throw pillows with the colors of the flowers. {so basically any color except black, gray, and brown. haha.}

*Throw pillows are one of the best secrets to themed parties. They’re a quick and easy way to change your decor to fit the theme of your party. You can buy cheap outdoor throw pillows or make your own. {see this easy envelope pillow tutorial

The main issue I deal with with a garden party theme, is pesky bugs. {go figure, right?!} There are sure to be plenty of plants around at a garden party and therefore, plenty of bugs!

garden-party1I love using fire elements with an Outdoor Garden party theme because it adds so much ambiance. And these pretty blue glass TIKI® Brand torches are so perfect! I love how whimsical they are. I believe you can only find these unique torches at Target.

So what themed outdoor parties are you planning this summer?
