Enjoy delicious food and great company at a summer garden party. But to do that, you must create a delicious and enjoyable plant-based menu that everyone can enjoy. Read our tips on how to throw a vegan summer garden party that’s entertaining and memorable.
1. Craft Flavourful Dishes
Flavourful dishes will keep every guest happy and well-fed. Create a filling main course with grilled vegetable skewers, marinated tofu or tempeh, or homemade veggie burgers.
A vegan taco bar is a fun, interactive dining option that’s big on flavour. You can make chilli-lime tofu or smoked vegetables the star of this delicious dish. Choose plant-based salsas and brightly coloured sides to accompany the main course.
2. Showcase Vegan Drinks
No summer party is complete without refreshing beverages. Instead of standard sugary sodas, impress your guests with yummy vegan drinks for the summer.
Juice, lemonade, cocktails, and mocktails help you relax and celebrate this summer season. Also, offering water infused with lemon, cucumber, strawberry, or mint encourages guests to stay hydrated.
3. Feature Fruity Desserts
Another key to throwing a vegan summer garden party is to feature fruity desserts. Summer fruit is full of nutrients and flavour.
Consider making these desserts for your get-together:
- Vegan parfaits
- Grilled fruit skewers
- Fruit kebabs with dip
Festive Tip: Consider an Ingredient-Based Theme
Summer fruits are full of personality—consider how you can use fruit to create a carefree party theme. For example, with so many delicious and creative ways to eat pineapple, you can include this fruit in your main course, side dishes, drinks, and desserts for a fun, tropical theme.
4. Build Ambience With Fun Decor
Host a successful get-together by creating a beautiful and inviting atmosphere. Whether you’re using chairs or floor cushions, ensure that everyone can access comfortable seating and shade. Decorate your outdoor space with vibrant flowers, potted plants, and string lights to set the mood.
Nature is a big part of any summer party, so use sustainable and eco-friendly tableware, such as bamboo plates, wooden cutlery, and reusable glassware. Bunting and banners add colour to your garden party, and you can make your own using fabric scraps.
Embrace the vibrant flavours of summer and enjoy time with your loved ones. By crafting flavourful dishes, drinks, and fruity desserts and building ambience with fun decor, you’ll create an event that captures summer’s carefree charm and wonder.
