If you’re looking for a traditional yet relaxed summer wedding theme, it’s hard to get much prettier than the rightly popular English Country Garden theme.

With strawberries and Pimms on the lawn to pretty English roses and outdoor games, here are 6 ways to help create your theme…

Food flags

How about decorating the feast of cakes on your dessert table with pretty little food flags? These are perfect for a Victoria sponge or strawberry tarts! Complete the look with vintage floral napkins.



Scatter some of this rustic wooden heart confetti on plain linen tablecloths for your reception decoration for the perfect English Country Garden themed feature. Simple yet so effective!


Mini jars

Mini jars of honey or strawberry jam is a great idea for your wedding favours. You could even involve friends or family and make a batch of jam yourself! Finish them off with a pretty tag and handwritten message on it saying ‘thank you’.


Card case

Your guests will often bring along cards with vouchers or money inside, so it’s a good idea to provide somewhere for them to put them. An old suitcase, lined with pretty floral fabric and draped with hessian ‘CARDS’ bunting is the perfect, rustic solution!


Guestbook alternative

Instead of a guestbook, how about an ‘Advice to the bride and groom’ book? It will inspire guests to write something more than ‘Thank you for inviting us’, and will be something that will no doubt make you smile every time you open it after your big day.


Light up

As the sun goes down and it becomes dusk, light pretty tea light holders like these are a fab idea to lay out. Place them around your venue to shimmer all night long!


And All Things Nice have lots of amazing things to decorate your wedding day beautifully, have a look!
