For the longest time I’ve wanted to host a garden party. I don’t know where the idea came from, but I’ve always daydreamed about cooking a lovely dinner for close friends using ingredients from my garden and from the local farmers’ market. I imagined we’d dine at sunset and drink wine as we laughed into the night. And that’s pretty much exactly what we did. It was picture perfect. I didn’t mess anything up and I can’t wait to do it again next summer!
With a little planning, you can host an incredible garden party, too. Here’s how my co-host and I pulled it off.
