BBQ’s, cocktails and our sunnies on - its official gals, garden party season is here! You gals know we love throwing parties, but even more so when it’s in the comfort of our own garden. This year we’re going for a super chilled tropical vibe. To give you gals some party inspo we’ve put together our garden party essentials…
1. Invite Your Queens
A fabulous invite is the starting point of any great party! It sets your theme, invites your guests (obvs) and let’s face it - gets you super excited! When it comes to garden party invitations, we love something bright and pretty with a chic and sassy vibe. If you gals want a more classic invite, a simple and pretty design will go down a treat.
Top tip: Don’t forget to add an RSVP.
2. More Pineapples More Flamingos
We’re so over the whole ‘less is more’, us gals at CL believe that you can never have too many decorations! Depending on your garden party theme, we think adding themed accessories is PERFECT. This year we’re going for a tropical theme. So, inflatables, brightly coloured paper pom poms and plenty of pineapple garlands is what we’re all about.
3. A Super Cute Cosy corner
A cosy corner is a garden party essential. You need somewhere for your gals to sit and chill whilst enjoying the party right? So effective and super easy to achieve, a cosy corner is a MUST. Grab a whole load of pretty cushions, blankets and rugs and fill the space with gorgeous twinkle lights and candles. If you’re going for a more classic party vibe, a table and seating arrangement can look super cute if decorated and covered in flowers and candles.
4. Party Snacking Feeling
You gals know we love snacks, so what better way to combine our love of food and parties together than with party food! YAS! A gorgeous spread of light nibbles and yummy drinks is the perfect way to keep your guests happy. Our FAVE go to has to be cupcakes! We’re obsessed with these super cute palm print cakes and they’re perfect for our party theme.
5. A Cocktail or Five
It’s not a party without a summer cocktail now is it?! Again, depending on your theme, continue this through to your cocktails. For us, a coconut and pineapple cocktail is perfect and looks FAB! Fruit punch bowls are a great way of letting your guests help themselves but for us we LOVE filling milk bottles or jam jars. It’s seriously cute and looks super instagrammable.
6. Dress to Impress Your Guests
OBVS we have to slay at our own party and so should you! Garden parties are the perfect time for pretty, feminine and floral dresses. Our fave look is a cute dress with sandals and loose tousled waves. If dresses aren’t your vibe, denim shorts and a girly blouse are a fab alternative!
7. Delicate Accessories
We’re loving delicate jewellery this season especially when we’re going for that girly vibe. Paired with pretty florals and ruffles our Rose Gold Link Bracelet is perfect >> Click here to view.
