How to Have a Groovy Garden Themed April Birthday Party!
With the chill of winter finally behind us, April is the perfect time to bring the party outside before the bugs take over during the warmer months!

Spring is a magical time to spend outside — there’s the buzzing energy of new life, the perfumed air, the still-crisp evenings, and keeping warm with a light sweater, not to mention aromatic herbal tea. Take advantage of spring’s natural enchantments by making your next celebration a garden party!
You don’t need a garden to have a garden party — the idea is to capture the feeling of being in a garden, and potted plants are an easy way to add some spring to your space. Put the pastels away for the season and bust out the vivid hues, especially green!

I can’t find the documentation to back this up at the moment, but I’m completely certain it’s a scientific fact that a bunting banner automatically levels up the cute factor for everything within a half mile of its radius. This craft requires no sewing skills, and you can make them out of just about any fabric — it’s so much fun to mix and match different patterns! Find out how at The Turquoise Home.
Blooms and Tunes
Potted plants are always a great choice for decorating, especially if you’re planning a garden party without a garden. This Plant Pot/Speaker combo cleverly blends the tunes right into your decor so you can keep rockin’ around your rhododendrons.
