Blooming Invitations

Many free printables are available today. However, there is nothing more exciting that receiving a truly creative invitation. Find the time to unleash your artistic ability and prepare a hand-crafted flower themed invitation. Where and how to start?
  • For the not-so-crafty ladies out there, you can try tracing a basic flower shape on a cardstock. Input the party details in each petal, with the name of the celebrator at the center.
  • Get the usual ready-to-go card-style invitation. Also buy some small terracotta pots or plastic pots and a packet of flower seeds. Tuck the packet of seeds and the card invitation inside the pot then tie a ribbon around the pot. Hand-deliver the invitations.
  • Use circle-shape and flower-shape punchers to create a flower-shaped invitation. A green pipe cleaner or popsicle stick can serve as a flower stem.
Flower Garden Decorations

It is impossible for you not to find a flower-themed party décor. There are flower garlands made of paper, balloons you can shape into flower, and of course fresh flowers from your garden or those pre-arranged you can order online.

A bowl of floating flowers would look perfect as a table centerpiece. You can also use old jam jars or the ever reliable mason jar as vase. You can use it as flower vases placed on tables or you can hang it at the back of the chairs or on the rail of your stairs.

Tissue papers can be made into flowers. Just follow the tutorial found here.  Flower garlands made of paper flowers or fresh flowers would look really lovely. Don’t forget to look around the house and find items you already own, like watering cans and flower pots, that can serve as decorations for a flower-themed party.

You can also focus on a single flower as your theme. Sunflowers and daisies can both bring that fun, vibrant and cheerful vibe to your celebration.

Flower Power Food

A party won’t be complete without some party food. There’s the cake and the sweets that must always be present. For adult parties with flower theme, you can serve dishes with edible flowers as décor or ingredient. 


For children’s parties, serve flower-shaped cookies, butterfly-shaped sandwiches and cupcakes with flower frosting. 



A fruit flower centerpiece on the buffet table would be eye-catching and would be perfect for both kids and adult parties.

Floral Party Supplies

If you’d choose to focus the flower print and flower-theme on decorations, you can go solid on party supplies. Opt for white table cloths so you can easily play with prints and colours. To create balance, use solid-colored paper plates, cups, utensils, and table napkins. Go for pastel colours to complement the feminine, floral theme. Or you can also choose a shade lighter or darker than the main décor’s colour.

For balloons, solid and printed ones are available. You can get a 3D flower-shaped balloon to decorate the entire venue.  

When it comes to party favour, there are plenty of options for you to choose from. Give away flower seeds or a small potted plant that your guest can grow. For kids, a “bouquet” of lollies would be really cool. You can also fill a flower pot with candies or frosted flower-shaped cookies.

Whether you choose to do the party indoors or outdoors, a flower-themed celebration is sure to bring joy. If you want to add more character to a flower-themed party, advance the motif by going on a full scale garden-themed celebration. The flower theme may also be incorporated in fairy, nature, rainbow, bee, ladybug,  color, princess, and Hawaiian themed parties.
