Hi! It’s Mel from So Festive! It’s officially May. And you know what that means? It means spending time in the yard, eating lots of fresh fruit and veggies, and getting excited for summer! I always find a new wave of inspiration come this time of year.
Since this is the season for outdoor entertaining, I’m going to share some simple Garden Party ideas with you. A Garden Party would be the perfect theme for a Baby Shower, Wedding Shower, or simply a Backyard Party to share garden tips. But, even if you won’t be having a formal Garden Party, these Garden Party ideas would be perfect for a BBQ or any other Spring and Summer party you might be hosting.
A simple bunting made with floral and striped paper can be the perfect decor to set the tone.
Instead of a typical veggie platter, serve the veggies in individual cups. A good idea is to place dip in the bottom of the cup of veggies and then your guests will able to quickly grab it and go. Have you ever tried jicama? It’s my new favorite veggie. It has a mild flavor, but has an awesome crunch and compliments other veggies nicely.
Your focus may be on veggies and fruit, but come on, isn’t chocolate a necessary ingredient for a good party? Serve Grasshopper cookies and get a win-win. They tie in with your Garden theme and help satisfy that chocolate craving.
Water is always a good beverage to serve at your parties, but why not spruce it up a bit? Beverage labels are super cute and all, but if you need a quicker alternative, simply remove the wrapper and wrap a piece of washi tape around each bottle.
Have fun with your Garden Party! If you do end up hosting one, let me know how it goes! I’d love to hear any ideas you have as well.
