Decorating with Plants: 3 Summer Party Ideas
Say hello to bright sunny days with a warm summer breeze! Summer is here and we’re ready to party! Summer is filled with fun occasions already, but why not create even more fun with a themed party? We’ve put together a list of our top summer party ideas and how to incorporate your houseplants into the party decor.
Summer Party Themes
1. Red, White and Blooms
If you’re feeling extra patriotic this summer, consider displaying red, white and blue plants in your home or outdoors at your next BBQ. Bold red bromeliads and anthuriums can be paired with white orchid blooms and blue watercolor orchids. If this combo isn’t to your liking, any plant can be incorporated into a patriotic centerpiece or table display. Stick a small American flag into your plant pot or have kids paint and decorate plant pots with stars and stripes. These decked-out plants make great hostess gifts as well for your July 4th or Labor Day celebrations.
2. Island Getaway
Whether you’re spending time this summer traveling to exotic destinations or not, with the right decor elements and a lot of plants, you’ll be able to pretend you’re on an island getaway right at home! To achieve those island feels at your next soiree, incorporate splashes of color with vibrant blooms and luscious foliage - think palms, monstera, alocasia, calathea, orchids, and bromeliads! Truly tropical and absolutely adorable, the new Max and Miles Pineapple Bromeliad is the perfect addition to this party lineup. Be on the lookout for the Pineapple Bromeliad at an HEB near you. Don’t forget the hollowed out coconut cups and a soundtrack of ocean waves playing in the background!
3. Festive Fiesta
Nothing says summer like bright colors, margaritas, and samba music! When decorating with plants, consider a pop of color from a vibrant orchid or bromeliad which can take center stage on your fiesta. Mix in some green beauty with lush foliage and succulent plants. Coordinate with colorful placemats or tableware. Don’t be afraid to mix and match patterns!
