Sometimes when you write a post, you discover some pretty fabulous finds.  This week I have some garden party accessories and essentials to go with all the outdoor party decoration ideas from our last post.  Plus some fun and unique treasures too.

Plus at the bottom of this post you will find a few of our best outdoor party ideas.

Garden Party Accessories

Starting with the centerpiece on your table let's look at a few easy ideas from one piece in the middle of the table to a long centerpiece that run down the middle of the table.

Garden Party Centerpiece Accessories

Eucalyptus garland garden party accessory

A long garland is an easy way to add that garden party vibe to your table. Measure your table length and then order the garland to run the length of the table. You can also let it trail to the ground on each side. If you love that idea simply measure from the floor on one side of the table across the top of the table and then down the other side to determine how long the garland should be.

If you choose a longer garland you may have to get two garland and connect them together in the middle.

garden party essentials like floral centerpieces

Every party needs flowers, and peonies are perfect for spring and summer garden party essentials. This adorable centerpiece is a one stop shop. If you order this flower arrangement simply place it in the middle of your table and like magic you have a beautiful garden party centerpiece.

Garden Party Details

Probably the one thing that will set your table apart from other garden party designs are the little details and this detail is the cutest.

Garden party essentials rolling pin and whisk decorations

To start looking at garden party accessory details let's begin in the kitchen.

Here is a secret of mine:  I can decorate all day long, but I am not the best at cooking. However, I adore using vintage or old kitchen utensils as decorations.  Don't be fooled by this rolling pin and whisk because they are very very large.  They actually hang on your wall or fence as decorations.

Here is where I used an antique rolling pin on an outdoor hygge Thanksgiving table.



Garden party essentials mud pie salt and pepper shaker

Every table needs salt and pepper shakers and while searching the web for inspiration for the event planning checklist, I came across this sweet little salt and pepper shaker.  I knew the minute I saw it that I had to share it with all of you.

Wouldn't this be the perfect addition to your elegant outdoor tablescape?  I love that they are stacked.

And that crystal knob is the icing on the cake.

Stamped spoons are great garden party accessories

Oh my goodness!  Isn't this absolutely adorable!  These stamped spoons would make the perfect garden party essentials. I actually threw this one in at the last minute because I couldn't resist

Garden party essentials Springerle patterned rolling pin

Many of you are probably wondering what exactly does this patterned rolling pin has anything to do with outdoor party decoration ideas?

While antiquing with my daughter, Hannah, I found a German Springerle rolling pin, and it came home with me.  I have my great grandmother's rolling pin and thought, “Wouldn't this be cute in a crock or something with my grandma's rolling pin?”

But here is my idea for your outdoor dinner party.  There are many Springerle recipes on Pinterest, and if you get a patterned rolling pin like this one to roll out the pattern, those would be the most special cookies ever to serve your guests.

PS, there are YouTube videos, too, on how to make them.


Now that you have ideas for amazing garden party accessories here are our best garden party idea.

First, we created a garden party table using my mother's desert rose dishes. We set it all up in our backyard to create a charming southern-style event. Get all the details in my garden party decoration ideas post.
