You can hang flower strings for a dreamy setting, or get some refurbished bottles with a single flower stem hanging from it all over a tree. You can even hang floral baskets!

You can stick to whatever colour theme you want, but make sure that the furniture has that worn out vibe, which totally goes with the backyard theme! Long picnic tables also work really well for backyard affairs!
- Have a pretty table setting going with the theme
