Creating a festival garden is fun and we did just that a while back by combining our love of all things boho with our enjoyment of our coastal surroundings and create a fun feel in our garden. It was a brilliantly hot summer’s day and we just let our love of festival brights and coastal living run riot.
So we just took a garden bench, a wicker chair, stacks of colourful cushions, a few other bits and bobs and let our imagination off the leash. We had stacks of fun and here are just some of the looks we created.
The key with festival style flowers is to work towards a natural, just picked from the field or garden look to blend in with your surroundings.
It doesn’t actually take many blooms to achieve a lovely rustic look. This hydrangea and small stem of begonias really pop against this rich terracotta wall of our courtyard garden.
Grouping vases of the same flowers together, in colours to tie in with your wedding theme gives you a cohesive look, whilst the natural trimmings on the jars keeps things relaxed.
Use Soft Furnishings to Add Pops of Colour
OK, so we went a tad OTT with the cushions and throws on this bench below, but it’s given us a full on festival vibe and also illustrates how adding just a few pops of colour, say just the pink, baby blue and zesty lime cushions can elevate a plain bench, or sofa into something more of a statement piece.
Here’s what we mean. Just enough colour to retain the boho vibe whilst looking sooo inviting.
Add Fun Accessories
Who doesn’t love a fun quote or statement sign? Guaranteed to put a smile on your face and so versatile as you can use them outside or take them indoors.
Colourful Mason Jars
Mason jars are timeless pieces that fit festival weddings perfectly and also add a lovely relaxed vibe to any party. Use them for drinks, but also don’t forget they look beautiful when filled with flowers.
We love coloured Mason Jars. You can buy specific colours like these or if you’re using them for decorative purposes only, you can paint them whatever colour you want. They would look amazing painted Bright yellows, pinks, reds and greens for a Mexican themed wedding. Or if vintage rustic is more your look, pearlised pastels would fit so well.
Seaside Festival Vibes
As many of you know Girl Gets Wed is based by the sea, so we couldn’t resist putting together a seaside themed festival table.
Festival Chill Out
Every festival needs a chill out zone, so we thought we’d finish with this.
We really hope you’ve enjoyed our take on how you can translate festival vibes into everyday living and bring some boho brights into your garden.
We’ll be bringing you more home and interiors inspo really soon, all oozing with our signature vibrant style.
