Dying to host an indoor garden party filled with fresh flourishes and effortless extras? The beauty is in the details, but that doesn’t mean they should give you a headache. Check out these gorgeous decorating tips so you can take your spring brunch to the next level.
Pretty up plates with posy plate toppers.
Decorating tip: Adding a nosegay to each napkin makes place settings extra sweet — for pennies.
To do: Snip two light pink tulips to six inches and two fuchsia tulips to four inches. Bundle the blooms in your hand, cinch the stems with a rubber band, then wrap with pink floral ribbon and lay atop a folded napkin.
For a beautiful ribbon option, try this 66-Foot Kubert Leaf Ribbon in Pink (Buy from Amazon, $10.99).
Boost the beauty with bitty bud vases.
Decorating tip: Pop Fragrant hyacinths into champagne flutes, and you’ll form a stunning floral focal point in a flash!
To do: Stack two pink dinner plates, then arrange four water-filled champagne flutes on top, clustering them in the center. Next, pop two pink hyacinth stems in each glass. Fill any gaps with leafy twigs snipped from the backyard.
Celebrate the season with a just-picked spread.
Decorating tip: The secret to a bright, blissful morning scene that’s perfect for ushering in spring joy? Mixing soft pink hues and fresh blooms with elegant tabletop elements.
Here, a wooden table is topped with simple blush-hued teacups and dinnerware. Tying pink raffia around folded napkins and rosé-filled floral-patterned goblets furthers the garden-chic style.
The wow-worthy touch? A lovely “living” runner that mimics gorgeous garden blooms popping through the ground outside!
To do: Lay a faux greenery mat down center of table, stake in water-filled floral picks — like Floral Water Tubes (Buy from Amazon, $7.99) — then pop pink spring blooms into tubes. After your gathering, remove blooms from picks, add to bud vases, display, and enjoy!
