Here are some ways to execute a gnome-themed party:Stick to the theme -
If you go to the trouble of coming up with a party theme, stick to it. You can tie the garden gnome idea into everything - from astroturf on the tables to the large gnome statue to the food.Use what you have -
I love using mason jars for party decor, so I liked seeing how Shannon turned simple glass jars into terrariums for table decorations. And stumps? You may be able to find some similar ones in your backyard. Be creative and you don't necessarily have to spend a fortune.
Shannon set up a fabulous dessert table, and it really stole the show. Instead of decorating everything, try focusing on one table or area. It will grab the guests' attention and remind them about the party theme.Focus
- Instead of trying to serve a full dinner, consider focusing on one type of food - maybe desserts or appetizers. This will allow you to better tie into the theme and keep you from getting overwhelmed.Set up a photo booth -
This is a fun takeaway for any party. Set up a simple fabric backdrop and a camera and ask guests to get photos. Shannon provided some funny props and bought bubbles. These pictures will be fun to look at for years to come.
