Unique Table Décor Ideas for Your Next Garden Party

Warm evenings and sunny days are here, and we can expect summer garden parties to be in full swing very soon. But if you want to host a memorable soiree, you'll need to put in a lot of work and planning.

The first – and often most difficult – step to planning a party is picking a theme to guide your décor. This is why we've rounded up some of the most unique table décor ideas to make you garden party one that guests will be talking about all summer!

Let Conversation Pieces Take Centre Stage

A focal point makes a world of difference for table décor. When decorating a round or square table, use a single centrepiece; for a larger table, use several smaller decorations. Just make sure they don't block your guests' view or clutter the rest of your table placements, like the cutlery and glassware. 

This is a great opportunity for you to let your creative prowess run free. Make the most of your outdoor and table space. You can use anything from crystals to shellac-coated pebbles to mason jars filled with fresh flowers and scented candles to reflect your personality.

Carefully Coordinated Patterns

Stick to a uniform design style to keep everything more streamlined and add contrasting elements for dimension. Dinnerware with earth tones and odd shapes and plain table linens mixed with patterned placemats bring an eclectic blend of modern and natural elements.

It's always interesting to see how contrasting objects come together. Play around with different fabrics and materials, such as textured linens with glossy porcelain dishes, earth-friendly bamboo cutlery, and dainty stemware on a rustic wooden table.

Eco-Friendly Bamboo Tableware

When hosting a large gathering such as a garden party, it's more efficient and practical to use disposable or reusable tableware. Eco-friendly solutions like bamboo cutlery not only complement the greenery in your garden, but they are a more environmentally responsible choice than plastic or stainless steel.

My Little Panda's plastic-free, reusable bamboo cutlery sets are excellent for outdoor events, picnics, or even daily use. Our online store has even more eco-friendly options, including reusable bamboo chopsticks and organic bamboo straws.

All our items are made from locally grown bamboo and are completely organic, BPA-free, and compostable. So go ahead and plan a garden party that is green inside and out. Reach out to us to learn more about plastic-free and sustainable living.
