Today we will discuss how to host an Independence Day-themed garden party. More now than ever, people are becoming creative with their outdoor living spaces. When you have a well-balanced custom landscape, hosting gatherings is effortless. We encourage you to try something new this year and bask in the beauty of your garden during this patriotic holiday. Here are some valuable tips.
How to Tackle Garden Decorations
Less is more. You might find it pleasantly surprising how small efforts make a big difference. For example, you can group outdoor patriotic plants in a pot. By “patriotic plants,” we mean plants that are red, white, or blue. You can also buy inexpensive pots in the colors red, white, and blue and add a flag to these decorations. Plates, napkins, and tablecloths with stripes and stars also fit the theme but choose which type of decoration you like the most. When you pair all of these together, it can cause visual clutter.
How to Think About Food
Foods such as hotdogs and burgers are Fourth of July staples. However, if you want to play into the garden party theme, you should incorporate blueberries, blueberries, and a bunch of fresh food into the mix. If you’d like to add some pizzazz, try baking or ordering a three-layer cake with red, white, and blue layers.
Invest in Landscape, Deck, and Patio Maintenance
If you want your landscape to be as beautiful as it can be, remember to keep watering it, but at the proper times. It’s best to water grass early before the sun has reached its peak. In addition, if there are any weeds or crabgrass or your lawn, it can detract from curb appeal. Deck and patio maintenance is also a necessity before guests come to enjoy the holiday festivities. You may need to give your deck or patio a thorough cleaning.
Another thing to consider is upgrading your landscape lighting. Unfortunately, July is the hottest month in Maryland. With that in mind, you may want to benefit from having a BBQ when the sun is no longer shining. Landscape lighting can illuminate your beautiful outdoor living spaces stunningly. You can also add tiki torches and string lights to enhance the ambiance.
