Find some old glass jars and fill them with candles to dangle over branches and hang over your picnic setting to add a festival vibe to your garden party. Try adding some fairy lights or lanterns to hang off surrounding tree branches.

Layer tapestries and rugs

Embrace the natural beauty surrounding your garden party by including elements of nature. Start by collecting fresh flowers of different sizes and colours. Tie them into bunches and place them in glass jars around your picnic, hanging some tree branches as well.

 

 

Dream catchers
