Garden Party Invitation Ideas

Attach a small card or postcard with the birthday information on it to an artificial flower with a pretty ribbon.

Print party information on large labels and stick onto the back of seed packets.  Ask guests to bring the seeds with them and set up a seed planting station with small terra cotta pots and soil  where they can plant their seeds and take them home as a favor. 


Garden Party Decorations
Decorate the party table in bright colors such as yellow, pink, orange, blue and green.  Buy large yellow plates and set them out on the party table at everyone's place.  Underneath the plate place a colorful doily that is larger then the plate to look like petals of a flower. 

Line the walkway with lots of flowers and greenery.  Or make a balloon garden by twisting colorful balloons into flowers and using a green balloon to twist into the stem and leaves.  Tie them to stakes and place them along the path to the party. 

Decorate the party table with flowers in different colorful pots.  Utensils and snack foods can be set out in new terra cotta pots with a bright ribbon tied around them.  Small wheelbarrows and buckets can be used also.

Bug and Flower Hunt
A fun treasure hunt that kids of all ages like to do at parties.  Buy lots of small plastic flowers or bugs and hide them around the party area or backyard before the party starts.  Give each guest a butterfly net (or a paper sack will work) to collect as many flowers and bugs as they can find.  If they want to play again (and they will!) divide the kids into two groups.  One group will hide the items first and the other group will find them and then they will reverse so everyone gets to hide the items and find them again.
