Host Your Own Garden Party

Looking for a great event for friends, family or your community for the spring? How about trying something new? I’d recommend hosting a Garden Party!
We recently threw a Garden Party at our apartment community, Camden Brushy Creek. It was a huge hit with our residents and we had a great turn out! What exactly is a Garden Party you ask? It’s a fun and creative way to make decorative pots, planters, and garden rocks. You can use these in your garden area, entryway, balcony or patio for your apartment home.
- Terra-cotta pots (we used 4 inch)
- Garden rocks
- Succulents or Plants
- Acrylic Paints
- Mod Podge or an outdoor sealing pray
- Paint Brushes, Sponges
- Paper Plates & Paper towels
- Food & Drinks
We had tables set up designated for food, drinks, and supplies. We also had an area for our residents to paint their terra-cotta pots, and to plant their succulents. We provided sandwiches, chips, veggies fruits, and drinks for our resident to snack on while they painted, planted, and visited with their neighbors.
Residents of all ages had a great time decorating their terra-cotta pots and rocks, We made sure to get pet stickers and designs for our many pet lovers that live at our community! Other residents used stencils, stickers, or created their own designs, such as their apartment number or pictures. We even had a couple of pet rocks created!
Once their terra-cotta pots were dry, we sprayed Mod Podge on them to seal it for outdoor weather. Once their pots were sealed, Devon helped residents plant their succulents. Our landscaping company Complete Landscapes donated the succulents and soil for our event.
Overall, this event was a huge success! Take a look at some of the photos from our event below.
Next step? Ask your friends, family or apartment community to host a Garden Party! It's sure to provide a good time full of creativity, fun and laughter.
