Summer Entertaining: Garden Party

We were certainly enjoying the “real” Spring that we were afforded in Austin, and we officially have outdoor entertaining on the mind. There is a small window where the temperature is just right for a charming garden party before the scorching summer heat sets in, and we might be just about there. Please relax and enjoy these beautiful images captured by Jessica Taylor of a garden party we hosted at our home. We hope they will inspire you to host one of your own with your dear ones!

On the menu:

  • Savory salmon, cream cheese, and caper brochette
  • Homemade biscuit BLTs
  • Ham and cheese cornbread
  • Fresh fruit kabobs
  • Donut hole croquembouches

We chose a traditional blue and white color palatte complemented by vibrant orange. Guests enjoyed full bar service, complements of a dear friend, and had fun playing bean toss.
