If you’re hosting your family or friends over for a garden party, you’ll want to ensure that your backyard is a gorgeous sight. After all, the season of outdoor entertaining calls for beautifully arranged blooms and chilled cocktails. As long as there’s no rain in the forecast, your afternoon will go absolutely smoothly with the perfect décor for the occasion. We’ve curated a few gorgeous ideas to help you create the garden party of your dreams.

Think assorted blossoms and patterned glasses: As we embrace the beauty of a Canadian summer, the key is to transform your humble patio or backyard into a tropical oasis. Try arranging a handful of yellow and pale pink flowers in a clear crystal vase, and then contrast the blooms against printed glasses. Punchy flamingo or floral designs can instantly revitalize traditional clear glasses, and leave your guests ready to toast Summer 2017.

Go for monochromatic white décor: If your backyard is home to shrubs, grass and plenty of greenery, ivory accents can offer the perfect contrast. Turn to white-painted patio chairs, white table linens and ceramic plates. The elegant ivory palette will instantly evoke country club vibes, for a slightly more formal approach to the garden party.

Channel a tea party theme: Perhaps you’re just entertaining your close girlfriends, and want a chic outdoor space to share appetizers and catch up on gossip. If that’s the case, turn to dainty floral-patterned teacups and matching saucers. A delicate pink rose motif can capture a tea party aesthetic, and also bring a vintage feel into your humble backyard.
