3 al fresco table setting ideas with flowers

Create stylish summer soirées with flowers

Warmer weather means fuller social calendars, giving us more reason than ever to get outdoors and dine al fresco. Whether your planning a garden bbq, picnic in the park or an upcoming wedding, we’ve put our best flowers forward to share the most inspirational table decoration ideas.

Whisk your guests away on a floral fantasy. These simple DIY flower arrangements and outdoor decoration ideas are total show stealers. You’ll find flowers to use in our summer bouquets. They’ll add a sense of tropical luxury to any outdoor get together.

Tropical Oasis

Summer style at a garden party or picnic at the beach asks for fresh neutrals mixed with vivid colour. Dress a table in crisp white linen and use large monstera or palm leaves as a placemat for an effortless tropical touch. Finishing touch? Dot exotic stems, like eremurus or lotus seed pods, with pineapples and lemons around the table for a zesty pop of colour.

Bohemian Balcony

Turn your balcony or terrace into a sanctuary, filled with fresh flowers and chilled summer vibes that conjure feelings of Coachella. It’s all about mixing natural textures and bold prints. Think rattan rugs, velvet pillows, woollen throws with geometric prints to dine on picnic-style, and plants in terracotta pots. The finishing floral touch? Let your bloomon bouquet take centre stage.

#ProTip: Add flowers last

Add the flowers to your setting just before guests arrive to avoid having them exposed to direct sunlight and too much heat. This’ll help to keep them farm-fresh for as long as possible.
