There is just something about the spring season that makes nature feel so inviting.
Life is buzzing and blooming all around, it only feels right to celebrate it!
A garden party is just the thing to bring out appreciation for the life you have built and inspiration for the milestones yet to come, so let’s get into everything you need to know about garden parties!
As the name suggests, a garden party is an entertaining get-together traditionally hosted in a home or community garden.
Neighbors, family, friends, and all kinds of people attend garden parties. They share food, socialize, listen to music, and relish in the season’s gifts of blooming flowers and fresh air.
Garden parties used to be associated with those of high-status many years ago, though today they have become accessible for people of all backgrounds to enjoy.
While garden parties can be had for no other reason than because an afternoon or evening spent in the garden sounds nice, many people mark special occasions like birthdays, anniversaries, or even holidays with a tasteful garden party.
There are all kinds of themes to get you into the spring party spirit, but let’s go over some of the most popular style guides for garden parties in 2023.
It’s no surprise that when on the topic of elegant design French style comes up. Parisian influence on global fashion, art, and design is hard to ignore!
In the context of gardens and garden party themes, French gardens are a magnificent direction to take for those that adore structured arrangements and polished presentation.
You are likely to see a heavy use of hydrangeas, pastels, pastries, and stripes in French garden party designs.
Here are a few elements that embody the French garden party theme well:
Similarly, this particular theme is influenced by the European countryside. However, Italian garden parties incorporate a much more Mediterranean personality. An Italian garden party may include more vibrant color palettes, like bright yellows, ocean blues, rich reds, and lush greens.
This particular theme is largely shaped by Southern Italian and Sicilian cultural elements and culinary items.
The Italian garden theme is perfect for events that should highlight a sense of family, togetherness, and genuine connections between guests.
Here are a few examples of what an Italian garden party might look like:
The Boho garden theme is best understood by free-spirited individuals, as it is loosely bound by the rules of design and style.
Instead, boho garden parties exude a youthful, playful experience with warm magentas and cozy camel tones.
Woven textures, colored glassware, and mismatched patterns work surprisingly well for this aesthetic.
