Last month we welcomed the arrival of spring at Linen & Flax by hosting our first ever Spring Garden Party. We transformed the backyard of our storefront home on Canton Street into an outdoor gathering space for guests to grab a drink, pull up a chair, and get inspired to kick off the spring season in style. Take a look at a few highlights from the night and grab a few tips on how to create your own dreamy outdoor space to celebrate the season.


Create an environment.  We wanted to create a completely new environment for guests at our Spring Garden Party. Rather than just have them gather in the usual space, our team worked hard to create a completely new environment right in our very own backyard. We set the scene using antique garden tables, mix and match seating, string lights, pillows, lanterns, and our custom designed Canton Street backyard swing. We even incorporated some custom made Linen & Flax corn hole boards to include a little something playful for our guests. You don’t have to completely transform your backyard to give it a different feel for your gathering. New lighting, fun seating, and some comfy throw pillows are simple ways to create a new outdoor environment for your own spring celebration.

Set the table. An easy way to update your space for a new season is to put together some simple seasonal tablescapes and centerpieces for your home. We demonstrated a few ideas for our guests at the Spring Garden Party, giving them some helpful hints on how to put together their own incredible tables for their next party. Grouping an odd number of items in different shapes and sizes creates an eye-catching and interesting focal point for your table. Incorporate pieces like globes, vases, candles, baskets, flowers, lanterns, and greenery to create a unique seasonal tablescape for your own home or gathering.

Gather your people. What’s a party without your people? Ours certainly wouldn’t have been as fun without our friends, family, and the people of our community in Roswell in attendance! Remember that no matter how well you transform and decorate a space, it won’t be complete until you fill it with the people you love! We’re so grateful for all the ones who stopped by to spend an evening with us last month. And we’re excited to continue making Roswell beautiful together.
