Landscapers offer 8 creative ideas for a ‘Garden Party’

Visions of tea sets, floral arrangements and maybe even some twinkling lights might pop into most people’s minds when they think of a garden party. 

However, the eight landscaping companies who created massive garden displays for the Spring Dispatch Home & Garden Show were a bit — and in some cases, a lot — more imaginative for this year’s Garden Party theme. 

Wandering through the gardens at the Ohio Expo Center, visitors will see a movie theater concession stand with an apothecary-like candy display and a bench made from the tailgate of an old Ford truck, perfect for watching the big game. 

There’s also a whiskey-pouring water feature (it’s really iced tea) and a stunning orchid-covered pergola along with pizza ovens and custom-concrete stovetops.
