Flowers add to the festivities
A backyard BBQ is relaxed, festive and friendly, and flowers only enhance the event. Nothing makes your yard and BBQ more inviting to friends and neighbors than Fresh Flowers. If you don't have a garden from which to cut your own flowers, ask your florist about which varieties will hold up well in summer's warm temperatures. Your local florist will also help you with floral design tips to further enhance your backyard.
Create a centerpiece by filling Mason jars with bunches of flowers, such as mums, daisies, marigolds, roses, lilies, asters, sunflowers or scabiosa. Drop a few candles into the jars if it is an evening event.
Special floral touches add to the occasion. Decorate pies and cakes with matching flowers.
Tie strands of raffia around silverware, slipping a single flower stem into each bow.
