Cactus Party Ideas for Summer!

Cactus Party Ideas for Summer!

The cactus trend has been around for a while, although it used to be that cacti were similar to marmite in the way that individuals either seemed to love them or hate them. Now, I think it’s fair to say we’ve all become a little obsessed with them. It’s rare to scroll through your Instagram feed without seeing one of those ridiculously perfect interior images with a cactus carefully placed in the background. I’m no exception, I absolutely love them; they’re cute, quirky and probably one of the only house plants I don’t manage to kill off. Not only are they popular with interior bloggers and house plant fanatics, they’re becoming a party favourite too! Here’s a few fun ways to incorporate this hardy little water-hoarding plant into your summer parties.

Cactus Party Bunting

Unique and colourful, our wooden cactus bunting is perfect for setting a tropical scene. Each garland features light and dark green cacti strung on hot pink twine. A fun party prop that can be re-used each summer, or a cute addition to your bedroom decor.

Cactus Ice Cream Cones

I wonder how long these actually keep their shape? They might not be totally practical but who cares, they look amazing and I bet they taste incredible too. These are made with pistachio ice cream – my absolute fave.

Cacti Cookies

One for the creative cookie designers among us – how beautiful are these iced sugar cookies? If you’re up for the challenge you could make (or buy) sugar cookies and decorate them with delicate royal icing cacti. They might take a little time to create but they’re so effective!
