Finally here is my much delayed post with highlights of some of the foods I served at my garden party. I don't have as many photos of the food and drinks as I would like as I left the photography to my husband
First up, my husband purchased these wonderful cupcakes from a local cake shop called The Cakebox.This photo shows only a small selection of them.
My Mom made these traditional sandwiches and a yummy cucumber sandwich too!
I made several drinks including a mint lemonade, white wine sangria, red wine sangria and a sparkling strawberry lemonade.
I tried one of the hottest recipes out there right now, a fruit salsa with baked cinnamon pita chips. This was absolutely amazing and would encourage you to try it. There are lots of recipes out there all of which I am sure are yummy but I followed the recipe at AllRecipes here.
I also made Cupcake Bites, sample photo below from Bakerella and recipe featured here, and although they are a bit time consuming to they always go over extremely well.
Next I dipped rice crispies to create rice crispie pops, this was completely copied from this Pinterest photo below.
And as featured at Iowa girl, I made these Caprese Bites. If you like tomatoes, you'll love these.
The menu also featured veggies/dip, chocolate chip cookies(my sister's specialty), strawberry salsa, and yummy scones made by my Mom served with cream/jam.
It was such fun to try new recipes and remake old favourites!
