    Everything in this slideshow

    • Choose a Beautiful Setting

      Gardens offer a dramatic and beautiful backdrop, perfect to honor a bride-to-be. Find the perfect setting in a friend's backyard, or rent a space in a park, a courtyard hotel, or botanical center. Look for a location that will be relatively quiet and private.

    • Set the Tone with the Invitation

      Set the stage with for the upcoming garden event by sending an invitation matching the color scheme of your gala. Here we used a floral patterned paper to line the inside of the invitation. Layering different color and sizes of paper creates a dramatic look for the inside of the invitation.

    • Create Amazing Tables

      Use unique garden chairs, embroidered linen napkins, vintage tin plates, silver chargers and flatware, and cut crystal with a botanical theme. Top it off with beautiful flower arrangements to flaunt your garden theme and add pops of color.

    • Place Flowers Everywhere

      Gather a few blooms and tie them together with lightweight paper-covered florist wire. Leave tails on the florist wire to attach to the back of the chair. Finish it off with a simple bow made of satin ribbon.

    • Leave a Favor

      Using two shades of fine-wired French ribbon, make the trio of roses on the top of the favor boxes wrapped in pattern scrapbook paper. Create the rose detail by rolling the ribbon into loose cylinders and hot-gluing them to a small square of cardstock. When the glue has cooled, fan the cylinder into roses and glue a wire charm under the center rose. Use double-stick tape to attach the roses to the box.

    • Use Unique Touches

      Add a personal touch to a garden shower with beautiful floral antique china.

    • Surround Yourself with Flowers

      Create grand centerpieces to be placed on tables throughout the garden. We chose imported roses, spray mum, snapdragons, dahlias, bells of Ireland, and peonies, to set the tone for the flowery garden gathering.

    • Use Fresh Fruit

      Make an easy-to-handle treat with watermelon triangles, strawberries, and orange slices attached to a skewer. Keep them chilled by filling the bowl with ice covered with fresh mint.

    • Top It Off with Dessert

      Bake petite layer cakes topped off with fondant and embellished with flowers. Cut these tiny delights from sheet cake using round graduated-size biscuit cutters. For clean edges, freeze the cake and thaw slightly before cutting.
