To celebrate the end of the school year & the beginning of summer, I decided to throw a garden party themed potluck brunch and invited some of my classmates. My rules were the following:
- Floral attire
- Floral-themed food (or at least an attempt!)
Luckily, Kim, one of my good friends from my second home state who is a baker-extraordinaire & also loves to throw parties was visiting me and helped me throw this party together in no time!
I found DIY instructions on how to make your own giant paper flowers & instantly knew I had to incorporate these into my party somehow. I've always wanted to do a DIY photobooth because who doesn't love fun photobooth pictures? So I made these giant paper flowers as a fun photobooth backdrop instead of having a boring off-white wall background. I loved the whimsical look of it!
I also found free photobooth prop templates of glasses & mustaches and printed them out. Kim helped me cut them out on construction paper and stuck them to stirrer sticks. They turned out so great!
Next came the food. Kim made delicious Red Velvet Cupcakes with cream cheese frosting. I found cute flower-topped food picks at a nearby boutique and we used those to decorate the cupcakes. We also made a Tuna-filled Crescent Wreath which was scrumptious.
My favorite floral-themed dish made by one of my friends was a delicious & beautiful peach cake decorated like a rose. Beautiful right?
Thanks for reading!
