Celebrate the season with a garden party!

Alfresco is the way to entertain this season…..

By Jeri Barry


Summer is finally here after what seemed like an endless winter and if you’re like me you will think of any excuse to spend time outdoors. One way to celebrate the season is to take your entertaining alfresco with a garden party!


An assortment of seasonal menu items on the buffet. This menu consisted of assorted tea sandwiches, shrimp cocktail with vodka spiked cocktail sauce, antipasto kabobs, fruit kabobs, fresh vegetables, lobster salad in cherry tomatoes and asparagus wrapped in prosciutto.

When hosting a garden party you can take advantage of the beauty of the outdoors and utilize the fresh, seasonal produce available without the pressure of providing an entire meal. Finger foods can be displayed on a buffet and beverages can be set up so guests can serve themselves. If you have flowers in your yard those make a great backdrop or can be cut and used on tables or the buffet.

Lobster salad in cherry tomatoes

A beverage table looks seasonal and festive with colored linen and fresh flowers.

At this particular party Zuppas provided lobster stuffed cherry tomatoes, asparagus wrapped in prosciutto, antipasto kabobs and macaroons. We have many other great menu options available and are always happy to help customize a menu or assist with linen and other rentals. Are you inspired? Get your guest list together! Your friends and family will love you for it.

Macaroons are a nice accompaniment to a cake on the dessert table. This cake was provided by Cake Anatomy in Kaukauna.
