Summer flowers for a fabulous dinner party

During the warmer summer months, it’s common to host parties and various social events. Whether you are hosting a casual or formal event, it’s important to ensure that you decorate your venue appropriately. Even if you are hosting a party at home, you should still set your table or tables and decorate them with something colourful. Summer flowers are great for adding colour to any table and you will find plenty of beautiful blooms at your local florist. Here are some ideas to help you decorate your summer dinner party.

Seasonal blooms

One of the main concerns when it comes to event planning is the budget. Not only do you need to plan for your menu and drinks, but your décor too. You need to make sure that you have enough space for all of your guests and you will need to decorate each table. If you are on a fairly tight budget, not to worry because you can save by ordering seasonal flowers. Seasonal blooms are great because they are readily available. When they are available in abundance, you will have so many more options and you will find them to be so much more affordable too.

Casual designs

If you are hosting a fairly casual dinner, you can keep your décor casual too. The meal will usually consist of either finger foods served in a buffet style or a plated meal with regular foods like soup, salad, a roast with vegetables and a light dessert. There is no need for fancy plating or a seven course meal. Three courses will certainly do and you can serve coffee and tea after dinner too. As for the décor, summer flowers like daisies will add colour without too much fuss.

Formal décor

If you are planning a more formal event, you will need centrepieces that are more elegant. The best summer flowers for these types of displays include lilies, roses and orchids. You do not need large flower arrangements for each table. In many cases, less is more. If you have round tables, place a small arrangement in the middle of each table. If you have long tables, you can either choose horizontal arrangements or create stylish tablescapes. A tablescape consists of a main central arrangement with smaller arrangements and decorative elements on either side. There will be variations in high and size but all of these elements will suit the chosen colour scheme.

Remember, you don’t always need to choose a specific colour scheme for every event or dinner that you host. If you are looking for inspiration, simply search for summer flowers online and you should find a wide variety of summer bouquets at your fingertips. Local and online florists are very skilled in designing bouquets suited for each season so you can be sure that their summer selection will always do the trick.
