Summer blooms for your dinner party

During the warmer summer months, parties and various social events are common. Whether you’re hosting an informal or formal event, it’s important to make sure you decorate the venue appropriately. Even if you are having a house party, you should set the table or tables and decorate them with something colourful. Summer blooms are perfect for adding colour to any table setting, and you’ll find many beautiful blooms at your local flower shop. Here are some ideas to help you decorate your summer dinner party.

Affordable seasonal bouquets

One of the main concerns when it comes to organizing an event is the budget. You not only have to plan your menu and drinks, but also your decor. You need to make sure you have enough space for all your guests and you will need to decorate each table. If you’re on a fairly tight budget, don’t worry as you can save money by ordering seasonal flowers. Seasonal flowers are great because they are readily available. When they are available in abundance, you will have much more choice and you will find them much more affordable as well.

Casual décor for a casual event

If you’re having a fairly casual dinner party, you might as well keep your decor casual. The meal will generally consist of sandwiches served buffet-style or a plate meal with regular items such as soup, salad, a roast with vegetables, and a light dessert. No need for a fancy plate or seven-course meal. Without a doubt, three courses will be enough, and you can also serve coffee and tea after dinner. As far as decor goes, summer blooms like daisies will add colour without much of a fuss.

Something a bit more formal

If you’re planning a more formal event, you’ll need more elegant centrepieces. The best summer blooms for these types of displays include lilies, roses and orchids. You don’t need large flower arrangements for every table. In many cases, less is more. If you have round tables, place a small arrangement in the centre of each table. If you have long tables, you can choose horizontal arrangements or create elegant tablescapes. A tablescape consists of a main central arrangement with smaller arrangements and decorative elements on either side. There will be variations in height and size but all of these items will fit within your chosen colour scheme.

Remember, you don’t always need to choose a specific colour scheme for every event or dinner you host. If you’re looking for inspiration, search online for summer blooms and you’ll find a wide variety of summer bouquets at your fingertips. Local and online florists are very skilled at designing bouquets to suit every season, so you can rest assured that your summer selection will always work.
