Summer Party Tips

It’s getting sunny and warm and time again for any excuse to throw a summer party. So I decided to get the girls together for a summer brunch complete with a yogurt bar, chocolate covered strawberry toadstools, cranberry orange gluten free muffins and organic berry champagne. I will post links to recipes as I get them done.

The chocolate covered strawberry toadstools we’re a big hit and pretty easy to make. Just dip strawberries in melted chocolate and paint with white chocolate or powder sugar mixed with a little milk. Store in the fridge until time for your party.

Chocolate Strawberry Toadstools

Our pretty champagne drinks were made with organic berry juice and champagne. I added skewers with frozen berries attached for an easy but elegant display.

I’m gluten intolerant so everything I served was gluten free including the gluten free cranberry orange muffins. No one seemed to mind, in fact I ended up giving the recipe to almost all the ladies at the party.

Champagne Drinks

Wanting to keep things light I added a yogurt bar with a selection of fresh fruit toppings and granola. This party would also be a perfect set up for a bridal shower or baby shower and the best part is that it looks impressive without being over complicated.

Keeping things simple with your decorating will save you both time and money. The use of bright colors and flowers made the display summery without adding to much work. I think the most time I spent was wrapping the silverware with purple napkins, tying with ribbon and adding a single silk flower to each one.

I hope this gives you some some ideas and inspiration to get together with your friends and enjoy the lazy days of summer.
