Step outside of your comfort zone this year and dress up that garden party even more. We were inspired by a theme that knows no boundaries (other than the garden wall) to create the perfect look for outdoor entertaining. Which version is your favorite?

The British Look

Try adding a colorful cocktail (we used Lillet Rose with champagne) to a victorian style glass, and pair with a sophisticated yet modern flatware set to bring a bit of edge. The British look is soft and feminine, so we took inspiration from a classic english garden. Shades of lavender, rose, and green create a soothing environment that’s perfect for any occasion.

The Bold Look

We embraced the bright outdoors for this iteration of the tablescape. Fresh cut flowers and a pop-y plate can go a long, charming way. Greenery is the base, but brighten up the colors with orange and red blooms. A bright plate adds a tropical touch, as do the fruit we scattered around the scene. Feel free to lean on your menu to add color to the table, too!
