For my girls’ birthday party, I recently arranged a Flower Crown Party. My objective was to organize a relaxed afternoon of making together over beautiful food, fun activities, and sweet memories. I’m already planning to do it again next spring because it was so much fun!
With the arrival of summer and Mother’s Day just around the horizon, here are some fun flower crown party ideas!
I invited a friend who owns a florist shop to lead a DIY flower crown making activity during our lunch for our Flower Crown Birthday Party, which was quite helpful. It can be done without a florist (step-by-step instructions at the bottom of this piece), but make sure to rehearse a few times before guests arrive to avoid any DIY disasters!
Make an appointment with a local florist or place an order for flowers at Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods, or another supermarket store. Using flowers in season, as well as foraging for greens in your yard, will save you money! What you can find in your own backyard may surprise you.
Poppies, ranunculus, anemone, and a variety of greens were among the most lovely flowers we had.
I always use the creative supplies as table centerpieces when I host parties with activities. Use the flowers from your crowns as a table decoration for a flower crown lunch. To make a temporary table runner, go to your local fabric store and look for coordinating cloth. My arrangement wasn’t flawless, but with all the blooms and texture, no one noticed!
The sweets were served in milk glass serving dishes and presented on a vintage dresser that was purchased for $20 at a garage sale. It turned out gorgeous after a few layers of coral pink paint! Paint’s power should never be underestimated!
I purchased gold embroidery hoops for my dessert backdrop and had a friend assist me turn them into flower crowns. She cranked these up in no time, and they turned out precisely how I had envisioned! We used 4m clips and sticky wall tack to hang them on the wall.
It’s probably a good thing that flowers wilt when they’re not in water because it made it easier to take these down after lunch. Breaking down parties is always a challenge for me. I guess I say the same phrase at every party, and I’d like to hang this on my wall!
Foods and Drinks
If you’re preparing a dessert buffet, keep the food and drinks to a minimum. I set up a beverage bar with two different sparkling fruit drinks and a fruit infused water for our flower crown meal.
Adding fresh fruit to your drink dispensers adds a nice touch and looks great! Freshly sliced watermelon, lemons, and berries were added to the mix.
Drinks can be served quickly and easily using colored paper straws and basic mason jars.
Simple sandwiches and tortilla wraps should be used to keep the food light. You can get as inventive as you like with the meats, cheeses, and other ingredients. Remember that ladies don’t eat in great numbers, therefore it’s better to serve less than a lot of food!
It’s never a bad idea to eat some fruit. Watermelon season has officially arrived in Seattle. A juicy watermelon is one of my favorite fruits since it adds so much color and texture to any meal!
Fruit kabobs are ideal since they may be prepared ahead of time and are quick to serve. The fruit kabobs were presented in an antique bread pan. The size was ideal!
Desserts are, without a doubt, my favorite part of any gathering. I wanted the desserts to be lavish and indulgent because we were having a party for my girls. I went with a whole chocolate dessert table, piled high with LINDOR truffles and other Lindt delicacies.
LINDOR truffle balls are one of my favorite decadent desserts. As busy moms, even a small piece of chocolate might feel like a well-deserved vacation. After tasting this delectable treat, you can’t help but feel better about everything! I unwrapped the truffles for a more classic look, keeping the table looking uniform.
To add a flash of color and a little liveliness to your chocolates, use loose petals. This table turned out fantastically!
We started crafting our flower crowns once our guests had arrived and had a bite to eat.
They were quite enthusiastic about constructing their crowns. I was blown away by how well they all performed!
It’s a good idea to keep your activity varied. If guests finish before others, it’s great to allow them to get up and wander around. Adults lose interest in things faster than children do. Before I had three flowers on my crown, my daughter finished hers. I could have spent the entire afternoon at the table, crafting!
I enjoy sending a take-home treat to my guests. I gave each guest a box of truffles wrapped in the colors of our party palette to stay with the chocolate theme. It’s available in practically every color and flavor, making it simple to match almost any party theme or color scheme!
It’s nice to send a follow-up card thanking guests for visiting and include copies of images taken at the event even after the guests have left and the celebration is done. In an online store, I found matched thank you cards. Who doesn’t appreciate receiving a handwritten card?

Print the final draft of your invitation card on any printing paper you have chosen. For me, I’d rather use a quite pricey paper for better quality than using a cheaper one but sacrificing the quality.
