With summer upon us, there's nothing quite like an outdoor garden party to celebrate a birthday or to just give family and friends their day in the sun.
Make it special by sprucing up an otherwise casual backyard garden setting with real silverware, elegant tablecloths and, of course, for splashes of bright, vivid color - don't forget your outdoor area rug from madisonatmain.com. To let you in a little secret, there will be a flash sale on Saturday Aug 4th from Noon until Midnight. Don't miss out!
Like any good party planner your should expect it to rain, and have an alternative space inside where guests can party indoors. After all, there is nothing like being prepared for the worst to insure it won't happen!
Send out invitations using downloadable clipart or garden photos, then set up any outdoor space decorated with fresh flowers (silk or paper flowers will do if you don't have a green thumb), terracotta pot utensit holders, or a bright carved watermelon basket you can make yourself.
You don't need an enormous lawn with space for furniture. A small patio, city backyard - or any outdoor space with room for chairs and a group of people - can be a perfect garden party setting.
So enjoy the weather and celebrate whatever life has to offer!
