Friends and relatives of a US bride-to-be gathered quirky garden ornaments, plants and flowers recently for a very special themed party.
Jessica Whiting of Marietta, Georgia, has been a lifelong fan of the much-loved children’s book The Secret Garden – and it was this book by Frances Hodgson Burnett that inspired the bridal shower.
Upon arrival, guests were greeted bygarden urns painted in bright colours, with the venue decked out with more flowers and decorative garden ornaments, such as garden statues, antique keys and gargoyles. This was followed by a delightful picnic-style lunch including cucumber sandwiches and chicken salad.
Garden parties are very popular in the summer months – although Georgia is of course lucky to have more hot days than back here in the UK! A celebration in a garden brightened up by statues and other garden ornaments can be a delightful but economical way to mark an occasion – from a bridal shower to a birthday.
