When summer finally arrives, vacations, relaxation, and parties come with it. Is it any wonder this is the season we choose to cut loose? After a winter spent indoors, often at the mercy of snow and chilly temperatures, the lengthening daylight and growing warmth tempt us outside and inspire us to unwind. If you’re throwing a barbecue, beach party, or garden party, or perhaps just hosting a few friends to celebrate the season, flowers are the perfect summer party decorations.

Summer Party Flower Decorations

Evoking both the abundance of the season and the beauty of nature, flowers can transform your yard or home into a welcoming party venue. So many flowers are in bloom that you’ll have plenty of options to evoke whatever atmosphere you choose. Cheery gerbera daisies or sunflowers, romantic hydrangea and peonies, beautiful roses, dahlias, and alstroemeria—these are just a few examples of the flowers that you can easily find at the florist or the corner bodega as the days grow longer.

Decorating for a party can be as easy as putting an eclectic mix of your favorite wildflowers into mason jars and scattering them around tables and countertops. Vibrant arrangements mixing contrasting bright hues will make your floral decorations lively, and combining different textures and forms of blossoms and foliage will add interest. One of the easiest ways to find inspiration is to start by picking out the most beautiful flowers available in the shop at that moment, as flowers always look best when they are at the peak of their season.
