- None Suggested.
- Decorate as for a garden party whether indoors or outdoors.
- Use lots of baskets, potted trees, and pots of flowers.
- Make walkways by lining up flower pots or even use garlands of greenery and place on the floor to make edging around walkways (garden paths) for your ladies to walk on.
- You could even lay down material (old sheets or inexpensive fabric would work) to make the pathways. Or use large pieces of cardboard (the sides to a refrigerator box would work well) and paint a flagged stone walkway. Just make sure it's taped down good so no one trips.
- Use watering cans to fill with flowers or greenery.
- If you have a table top fountain or even a small freestanding one made for outdoors, bring it in for your event.
- A birdbath would be a nice addition for your garden theme. You can even place some fake birds around.

- If you enjoy taking pictures at your events, this will make a nice backdrop area.
- Any song that deals with being more like Christ will fit in, because that is what kindness embodies--being more like Christ and reaching out to others.
