Garden Place Settings: Ideas & Inspiration

Last year, we gave you our roundup of favorite BBQ table place settings for all of those evening dinner parties with the neighbors. And now, we’re compiling a list of place settings that are made for the outdoor, but with a bit more of a delicate touch … with somewhat of a garden inspiration. Whether you’ve got a bridal shower planned in the midst of your beautiful rose garden, or you just want your family over for a light dinner, here are some beautiful garden place setting ideas that will certainly inspire.

1.  Whimsical Tea Party.

We love the variety of textures made to create some a whimsy style. It’s perfect for an evening tea party in the garden you’ve worked so hard to create.

2. A Simple Nod.

Remember, you’re dining at home, so don’t be afraid to go with something more casual. For a slight nod to the garden-style, add a flower or even a butterfly to the tablescape.

3. Neutral Foundations.

Sometimes, it’s nice to have the food do the talking. So, we love how this setting keeps a neutral, yet natural foundation for dinner to be served.

4. Creativity at its Finest.

Not only is their a garden glove incorporated into the design, but the dessert is completely garden-inspired. Potted plants (cookies and cream pudding) and plates that pay complete homage to your venue make this an incredible table style.

5. Golden like the Sun.

Use elements in the outdoors as your inspiration. What do all flowers in the garden need to thrive? Sunlight of course, so use that as a jumping point for your color choices when setting the table. Like this golden-hued design, it’s beautiful and perfect for a light lunch in the garden!

6. A Theme Within.

Why not add some luxuriousness to your garden dinner? Have the girls over and use golden-rimmed plates and wine glasses to celebrate .. the season! Who cares if there’s nothing “fancy” going on, treat yourselves to a night of royal vibes.

9. Quaint, Cozy Greens.

Add a herb or small plant as your favor for the party and keep things in neutral territory. Kind of like we said previously, let the food do the designing. But, in this case, add some green to pay homage to the scene!

10. A Modern Take.
