DIY Ideas for a Lawn and Garden Shower (or just a fun party!)

If you’re anywhere in the Upstate of SC this week, you know what I mean when I say it’s been HOT HOT HOT!!!! WHEW! Makes me want to pretend I’m five and run through the sprinkler on the lawn…and speaking of lawns…

I just designed these fun invitations for a Lawn & Garden Shower…

…and in looking for inspiration, I found some ADORABLE DIY and decor ideas that I just had to share as well!! I don’t have any lawn & garden showers to plan, but some of these would be great for just a summer Saturday cook-out!

I’d love to make these hanging vases just to have around when everything starts to bloom!

Or how about this fun gift idea? Or this one… what a GREAT idea for a gift basket!!! I’ve seen several ways that this can be written, but here’s one from The Krazy Coupon Lady.

Created a card with this wording:

On (enter date of wedding), (Groom’s Name) and (Bride’s name) will PLEDGE themselves to each other and(Bride’s name) will GAIN a new last name. It’s no SECRET that their life will be full of JOY. We know you think your HONEY is FANTASTIC but your CHARMIN fella might not always be MR. CLEAN. You might have to put in some EXTRA effort and give your counters a SOFT SCRUB. Remember to always SNUGGLE up close at night. At DAWN take on the new day and live your lives in total BLISS.


Chalkboard adorable-ness. Check. Tiny carrot cuteness. Check. Precious terra cotta pots as serving ware. Check. Such a good idea.

I just love this wreath as well. I think a front door without a wreath is like a present without a bow. Just not right, I tell you…ESPECIALLY for parties!

And of course, no party is complete without the perfect favor for guests to take home! How about these perfect succulent favors?

Happy Planning!
