There’s no better time than Mother’s Day to show the moms in your life how much you appreciate them. This year, do something special and different by hosting an outdoor garden party dedicated to them.

The Basics

Every garden party has a few must-haves to get started. First off, the seating! Depending on the party theme and the look of your landscape, outdoor furniture can play a huge role. If you’re going for a vintage look, consider looking for unique pieces at your local antique store. For standout pieces that you can use for the rest of the season, and beyond, check out the great selection of patio furniture at your local Hortons.

Tableware is also essential for any garden party. If you decide to go with the vintage theme, also consider incorporating floral China pieces and antique silverware. For a more budget-friendly party alternative, find plastic silverware in different colors like pinks and blues to make your place settings pop.

The Decorations

When it comes to decorating for your Mother’s Day party, the easiest place to start is the centerpiece. Floral centerpieces are always on trend. For Mother’s Day, choose pastel colors to create a soft and inviting look. Hanging fairy lights in trees and along fencing is also a signature touch to any garden party. If you’re looking for a more romantic feel, highlight walkways with path lighting and trees with spotlights. For a finishing touch, find the best home accessories for your party at Hortons online.

The Menu

Whether you choose finger food or a full meal, a garden party menu should always be fresh and inviting. Visiting local farmers market is the best way to incorporate the spring air into your Mother’s Day menu. From crisp cucumbers in finger sandwiches to sweet berries in fruit tarts and pies, the moms in your life will be overjoyed at the delicious options you’ve prepared for them.

Happy Mother’s Day from Hortons and remember to stop in or shop online to find the lighting and décor pieces to make your Mother’s Day garden party a hit!
