With the first signs of spring, can garden parties be far behind? So for your springtime wedding rehearsal, why not opt for a romantic outdoor brunch rather than the usual dinner? We’ve got lovely inspiration from our own vintage garden party set for tablescape elements and decor. Then, we picked some garden-fresh favor finds and scrumptious brunch recipe ideas for you that go perfectly with the springtime theme. (*this post contains affiliate links)
Tablescape Elements for a Springtime Garden Soiree
A vintage-inspired country garden look is just the thing for an outdoor venue this season. See how we created that romantic ambiance with carefully chosen decor touches that you can use, too.
The contrast of romantic and rustic is surprisingly easy to pull off. Over burlap or linen tablecloths lay antique-style lace runners. Then, use dainty paper doilies as placemats.
Another contrast you could opt for would be modern acrylic “ghost chairs” to set off against the vintage garden scene. While an embroidery hoop display would provide a pretty backdrop for the brunch buffet.
Make every element part of the spring rehearsal brunch decor—as in lace and floral design tent cards for cupcake favors in pretty packaging.
You can also DIY lovely vintage-style guest favors, like these antique-lace brooches with pearl centers or favor cones filled with dainty baby’s breath.
And for a springtime brunch, one of the must-have morning cocktails would be sparkling mimosas. While you could also serve lemonade and a selection of breakfast teas and coffee.
