Garden party ideas

wtorek, czerwca 04, 2013

Having a garden party is a wonderful way to celebrate spring/summer and get everyone outside.
A garden party may seem like it has to be expensive but it doesn't have to be. Garden parties are a great way to entertain friends and give you an excuse to dress up!

1. decoration
The garden party décor does not have to be elaborate. If you have the space decorate a small table with a tablecloth  (or anything  similar) place a vase of flowers in the middle or float some flowers in a bowl of water and voilà!

2. food
it could be: vegetables, fruits, canapés, cupcakes.....
2 recipes:

1. Cold Roast Beef, Blue Cheese & Grapes
  • Rare roast beef
  • Blue cheese
  • Grapes


Stack a thin slice of rare roast beef on top of a chunk of blue cheese and a grape. Spike it and eat it!

 2. Cherry Tomatoes Stuffed with Pesto
  • 1 cup fresh basil leaves
  • 3 to 4 cloves of garlic, peeled
  • 5 Tbsp. pine nuts
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt, or to taste
  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus additional as needed
  • 1/2 cup grated Pecorino Romano cheese
  • 1 pound cherry tomatoes


Place the basil leaves, garlic, pine nuts, salt, olive oil, and Pecorino in a food processor or blender and process until smooth. If the pesto is too thick for your taste, add a little more olive oil.

Cut the tops off the tomatoes. With a small spoon, scoop out the seeds and pulp, taking care not to puncture the skin. Fill the tomatoes with the pesto and serve at room temperature. 

have fun and  Enjoy!
