An antique bistro table set is the perfect sitting space for your romantic themed garden. You can typically find bistro sets at antique and thrift stores fairly inexpensively. Chairs that feature intricate designs or a uniquely shaped back, such as a heart-shaped back will fit the theme of your garden perfectly. You may choose to upholster the chairs in a romantic looking fabric, or you can use chair covers and a matching table cloth to dress up your bistro set romantically.
You romantic garden can look just as stunning during the night as it does during the day by stringing twinkle lights in the trees in your garden. Soft white twinkle lights will give your garden a magical look that is spring and summer appropriate. This will also reduce the risk of injuries occurring in your garden at night, as the lights will make it easier to see and find your way around in the dark.
Decoupage Flower Pots
Dress up your plain terra cotta flower pots by decoupaging them with a romantic themed scrapbook paper. This easy craft project is fun to make and will enable you to incorporate your flower pots into the rest of your romantic decor. Use Mod Podge to decoupage strips of printed scrapbook paper onto the terra cotta pots and use a waterproof glaze as a sealant.
Antique Bird Cages
Antique bird cages will add a Victorian look to your romantic garden, and are an inexpensive and surprising element of decor that will make the space more visually interesting.

Smaller cages can easily be converted into bird feeders and suspended from trees, while a large cage can sit directly on your patio to add elegance in your sitting space.

Intricate, formal-looking candle holders can easily make citronella candles look more formal and romantic looking during mosquito season. You can pick up a romantic looking candle set at nearly any thrift store, making this one of the most inexpensive ways to make your garden more romantic looking.
