Indoor Garden Party with The Atrium at Overton Square

Today on the Southern Bride Blog we are excited to have The Atrium at Overton Square here to discuss the popular and oh so beautiful wedding reception trend: An Indoor Garden Party.

Outdoor wedding receptions can be both breathtaking and scary. If planning one

reception wasn’t enough, outdoor receptions require a thorough plan B just in case

Mother Nature decides she doesn’t want to cooperate on your big day.

Why not host your garden party indoors? The heat of the southern sun is no picnic on a

bright, cloudless day, so perhaps your guests would be more comfortable celebrating

in an open air-conditioned venue with lots of light and outdoor accents. When

searching for the perfect venue, look for a space that is a neutral canvas with adequate

open space and plenty of light.

Steal these bright ideas for a reception that is anything but garden-variety!

1.  Create a refreshing focal point. Cool of on a hot day with a custom

ice sculpture like this one from Premier Ice Sculptures. Have the artist design the

piece to include your monogram or a symbol to commemorate your favorite

relationship memory. Have your florist dress it up with colorful accents like

these provided by Ashlye McCormick Design, and your guests will be in awe!

2.  Pair classic shapes and ideas with whimsical

flourishes.This cake by The Flour Garden uses clean lines and gold tones to

create the perfect backdrop for ornate floral accents.

Put a modern twist on

traditional fare by adding a punch of color like Simply Delicious Caterings did

with these gorgeous chocolate covered strawberries.

3.  Take a load of and lounge in vintage style. Give your guests a

comfortable place to kick back and rest amidst all the fun. Hosting an indoor

garden themed party means you can incorporate lush furniture that wouldn’t be

possible in the elements. Place pieces like these from Propcellar Vintage Rentals

near a window to summon the perfect afternoon tea party ambience.

4.  Dress up your dinnerware with foliage. A ginkgo leaf adds an

understated elegance to an ornate place setting like this one assembled by

Mahafey Party Rentals. If you choose to use place cards, add an accent from the

season’s bounty.

5. Sway the night away amidst candlelight and

abundant topiaries.

Who needs a disco ball and flashy lights? Create the perfect

ambience for your first dance by hanging an overhead floral arrangement like

this one designed by L and Jay Productions and incorporating votive candles

reminiscent of twilight. Your guests won’t be able to stop themselves from

joining in.
