Picking Flowers to Complement Your Theme
Plan the perfect patio party by selecting flowers that will complement the theme of your party. Your first step is to choose flowers based on color and appearance. Think about the theme of your party. Are you planning an outdoor wedding reception? Ivory or purple roses are always a good choice. Roses also come in a wide variety of colors that you can choose from to match the colors used in the wedding. Planning a Fourth of July party? Consider getting red petunias or roses and combining with white lilies and blue hydrangeas. When choosing flowers, start by thinking about the colors and themes being used for your party. Then shop your local greenery for matching flowers and plants.
Choosing the Right Flower Planters
Pick flower boxes or outdoor planters that will best showcase the appeal of your flowers and plants. Think about the flowers you are using and the theme of your party. Fiberglass and resin planters can provide a traditional look, that is great for weddings or formal events. Metal and iron garden planters could also work well for a formal event and include a variety of modern designs that can act as a conversation starter.
If you are worried about the constant care required to keep your flowers healthy, then think about using self-watering planters. Our cottage-weave mocha self-watering planters have a natural wicker look to match your patio furniture. If you are limited in space, a self-watering window box lets you bring flowers to eye-level and off the ground. Self-watering planters and window boxes let you focus on the party instead of caring for your plants.
Arranging Your Outdoor Planters for Patios
Now that you have chosen which flowers and outdoor planters you intend to use to decorate for your party, it is time to consider how to arrange your planters. Your outdoor planters can be used to accent areas along your patio. Use a pair of Promenade tall patio planters to create an entry point for guests. Arrange smaller planters near a buffet table to draw people’s attention towards the food. Carefully consider where you want to place your planters and use them to highlight specific features or locations around your patio or yard. Your guests will naturally be drawn to the bright, vibrant colors of the flowers that you use.
