DIY Garden Themed Decoration Ideas

Let’s explore a few creative and budget-friendly DIY garden-themed decoration ideas that will transform your party space into its very own garden.

  1. Flower Wall Backdrop:
    Create a beautiful focal point with a flower wall backdrop. Use a pegboard or chicken wire as the base and attach fresh or artificial flowers using floral wire or zip ties. You can select a mix of colorful blooms like roses, sunflowers, hydrangeas, or your child’s favorite flowers.
  2. Mason Jar Vases:
    Repurpose mason jars as adorable vases for your garden party. Fill them with a variety of wildflowers or daisies and place them as centerpieces or scattered around the space. You can add a rustic touch by tying twine or lace around the necks of the jars.
  3. Hanging Terrariums:
    Bring a modern touch to your garden party with hanging terrariums. Fill glass orbs or geometric containers with moss, air plants, and miniature succulents. Hang them from tree branches or create a beautiful display by suspending them at different heights.
  4. Floral Table Runners:
    Go beyond traditional tablecloths and adorn your tables with floral table runners. Use a variety of fresh flowers or faux flower garlands to create a unique and fragrant centerpiece. Play with different colors and textures for an eye-catching effect.
  5. Potted Plant Party Favors:
    Give your guests a gift that keeps on growing by offering potted plants as party favors. Choose small herbs, succulents, or flowering plants in decorative pots. Attach a custom tag with each guest’s name and a brief care guide for their new green companions.
  6. Tea Light Lanterns:
    Create a magical party space by incorporating tea light lanterns into your garden party decor. Use mason jars or glass votive holders and place tea lights inside. Hang them from tree branches or place them along pathways for that warm and inviting glow.

Garden Party Themed Food and Treats

Alright, there are PLENTY of ideas for garden party-themed foods, but we’ll keep it brief for you. Here are a few ideas to consider:

  1. Cucumber Caterpillar Sandwiches:
    Simply slice cucumbers into rounds and sandwich them between two slices of bread with cream cheese and a variety of fillings like turkey, ham, or hummus. Use olives for eyes and cherry tomatoes for a pop of color. These little critters are nutritious and will definitely excite the kids.
  2. Veggie Skewers with Dip:
    Create vibrant and healthy veggie skewers by threading colorful veggies like cherry tomatoes, bell peppers, and cucumber onto skewers. Serve them with a tasty dip like ranch or hummus.

Sweet Treats

  1. Flower-Shaped Fruit Popsicles:
    Cool down the guests with refreshing and beautiful flower-shaped fruit popsicles. Blend together a mixture of fresh fruits like strawberries, blueberries, and pineapple with some coconut water or yogurt. Pour the mixture into flower-shaped molds and freeze until solid. The kids will love these icy treats, and they’re a great way to sneak in some extra nutrients.
  2. Cakes and Cupcakes:
    No garden party is complete without cake. Here are some fun ideas to help with your planning.
