Flowers!

A botanical garden must have flowers!  Hand pick your favorite flowers and put them in a cute teapot for a centerpiece!  Try choosing one-color flowers for a more put together and clean presentation.  Keep the flower’s height low so your guests can see over them across the table!

Patterns

Now that you’ve picked one color for your flowers, have fun mixing and matching any patterns you’d like for your tablecloth, seat cushions, napkins etc.  This will add a fun and stylish vibe to your party.  To keep in line with the botanical theme, some ideas you can use for these patterns are lemon trees, butterflies, leaves and palm trees.

Community Table

To keep your guests together and so everyone can share in conversation,  go for a single long table.   Decorate with a neutral runner and you can place your centerpieces on it.
