Summer Garden Party!

I haven't posted a 'Let's Bake' post in a long while here on The Edge of Beauty. That's why today I thought I would mix things up a little and share with you my plans for garden party full of cake!

Theme: When I think of summer garden parties, I think of floral... and I mean lots of it! I think of girls gathering round for light fruit cocktails, watching men hover around the barbie whilst you devour copious amounts of scones, clotted cream and strawberry jam on a gorgeous Cath-Kidston-esque table cloth. I'm making myself hungry just thinking out it.

Decor: It's summer and it's hot. You don't want to spend hours decorating your garden. Simple pieces like pinning up some bunting and curling some floral fairy lights around a bush or two can really bring a room, or should I say garden together.

Products: Most things you need for your scrumptious girlie get together can probably be found in your cupboards at home. But me being me, I can resist a shopping trip or two for a few little extras. The drinks dispenser (2) from Lakeland really caught my eye. It looks so refreshing and I love the cold ice underneath keeping everything chilled. You can then go on to serve your cocktail in a cute jar mug (10) from Homewetbar and the silver cap means no spillages down your brand new dress. New dress I hear you ask? Yes! Look below!

Outfit: Oh why not?! If you're going to put on a theme, you may as well dress for the occasion. But have no fear, this doesn't have to break the bank. This gorgeous little dress above is from Primark! What a steal! And when you save money on the outfit, you feel you can splurge elsewhere. Pop on this pearl style necklace with golden thread and I guarantee you will feel a million bucks :)

If you're hosting a summer party this year, what is your theme going to be?
