Garden Party Ideas

Some fabulous Garden Party Ideas to inspire you this summer! Taken from my Pinterest board of the same name.

Beautiful table flowers create the right atmosphere..

Create beautiful centrepieces for your party tables with traditional English flowers; peonies and roses smell divine on a warm summer evening. Or how about deliciously scented sweet peas?

Vintage china is the perfect look for an English garden party.

Vintage china is the perfect look for your tables, mismatched pieces give a quirky, eccentric vibe. Why not try making your own Vintage China Cake Stand? Follow my simple instructions on my post: Make a Vintage Cake Stand.

Create an outdoor "drinks bar" for your garden party

Homemade bunting adorns this “outside bar”, which is a zinc topped planting table, garden planters are the perfect containers for ice to keep drinks cool.

Use garden twine and wildflowers such as buttercups to tie up cutlery and napkins. If you use disposable cutlery and paper napkins this will make them look really good!

Adorable way to serve appetizer salads at a party.

Serving food in pretty, individual glass dishes is ideal for outdoor eating.

Raspberry Basil Mojitos -Yum!

Create a signature drink for your party, this Raspberry and Basil Mojito sounds delicious! Find the recipe at A Spicy Perspective.

Make a Maypole Cupcake stand

Go to town on the presentation of your food. This Maypole inspired dish is so cute!

Add interest to your food table by displaying plates at different heights -lovely!

Displaying food at different heights creates drama and makes it easier for guests to see (and reach) dishes. An eclectic mix of plates is brought together by sticking to the colour white.

Write menu items on stones and place near the dishes on the buffet table

Use pebbles to write on the name of dishes and place them near to the corresponding  platters/plates.

Heavenly Angel Food Cake Recipe

Individual cakes are easy to eat and this angel cake recipe is heavenly with sugared rose petals as decoration. Find the recipe at My Recipes.

Garden party, tablesetting, use jam jars and garden flowers.

For pretty table decorations, fill a variety of glass vases/ jam jars with garden flowers.
