Since neither of us have an outdoor space at our apartments, we held our garden party at a public park in the city. We grabbed an available picnic table, brushed it off and set out a table runner.
Wanting to keep the décor simple and natural, we bought a few loose stems of flowers with large blooms and placed them in small vases to create a centerpiece that made a big statement. We combined Fostoria glass pieces with feminine bowls and vessels to hold small bites of food in an eclectic way.
Because our garden party was held outdoors, we decided to use paper plates in a soft pink color and mixed in some navy lattice napkins that we had on hand. Bamboo forks were the only utensils needed, so we decided to add a special touch by gilding the handles for a dipped gold look (using our left over gold-leafing from this project). The overall palette was white, navy, pink and yellow with hints of gold which created a girly yet natural feel. This type of outdoor party could be translated into any girls get-together such a wedding shower, baby shower or birthday party.
