#TheList: How To Throw a French-Inspired Summer Soirée
When it comes to throwing a party, a theme can help add a playful element to the evening, and give your guests a touch of the unexpected they will never forget. With Bastille Day here, an “avant garden” soirée feels nothing short of chic and is the perfect way to add a little je ne sais quoi to your typical get-together. Here, we tapped landscape artist Lily Kwong, whose design company Lily Kwong Studio connects people to nature through innovative landscape design. Her recent art installation on the High Line featured a collaboration with St-Germain, and showcased thousands of florals that transformed the NYC hotspot into a botanical fantasy. From whimsical cocktails to romantic decor, peruse Lily’s tips below and throw your own French-inspired bash.

"People are used to bouquets as table centerpieces, but a floral runner or hanging blooms add a visual interest and magic to a table setting or party decor."
"No garden soiree is complete without a simple and refreshing cocktail in hand. Personally, I love the signature St-Germain cocktail, made with St-Germain elderflower liqueur, Champagne, and sparkling water over ice with a lemon twist. They also have a beautiful carafe that can serve up to six people at a time, and can double as a floral vase."
