Embrace Garden-Inspired Decor.
A garden party brunch wouldn’t be complete without beautiful floral accents. Create centerpieces by filling vases with your favorite flowers to give the table a blooming touch of springtime. Furniture Row has a wide selection of vessels for roses, daisies, or whatever other buds suit your fancy. In our lineup, we featured the Small Segovia Vase, Murano Vase, Small Seeded Hurricane, and Small Langdon Vase. A garden party brunch should be casually eclectic, so don’t be afraid to mix and match different styles of vases and pots on your table and serving stations. If you are looking for extra blossoming style, incorporate furnishings with floral upholstery into the mix. Our pick is the Seaside Accent Chair, which is the perfect amount of sweet and whimsy. The Bluebird III Print is also an excellent choice, especially when you want to bring some garden-inspired decor indoors!
Choose a Bright Color Palette.
A garden party brunch should have a bright, spring-inspired color scheme. Many times, the inspiration for the palette is taken from the floral arrangements. The Magnolia Home Swedish Oval Dining Table in antique white along with the seafoam green Cottage Side Chairs are the perfect backdrop to highlight the colorful decor and bouquets you choose to display. Some of our favorite colors for the mix are sunshine yellows, sophisticated blues, charming greens, cheerful oranges, and of course, every shade of pink. Mix and match pastels with brights to create an eye-catching look.
Create a Drink and Snack Station.
In addition to your garden party brunch dining arrangement, consider creating a cute drink and snack station for your guests to utilize while the food cooks and after the meal is done. The Sonoma Island is a great way to serve mimosas, iced tea, coffee, and small bites to your group. It also had casters, so this rustic server is portable! Be sure to choose fun glassware and plates (such as the Souk Platter) to serve your refreshments and appetizers.
Make Your Garden Party Brunch Comfy.
A garden brunch party is just as much about the food as it is the conversation with great friends. Keep your guests chatting longer by making everyone comfortable. Try to throw some plush accent pillows onto the chairs – Our favorites are the Burlap Trim Pillow and the Heathered Outdoor Pillow, or consider adding a soft rug into the mix. The Emmie Kay Gray Rug by Magnolia Home is the perfect combination of sweet and cozy. For the party-goer that likes to nap after a big meal, the San Martino Hanging Basket Chair offers maximum outdoor comfort.
Overall, make your garden party brunch your own! It’s so much fun to get together with friends and loved ones for Easter or a cheerful weekend meal, so make sure your furnishings and decor are just as sweet as the memories! Happy brunching!
