School's out, evenings are
still long, and the sun is making enough of an appearance for us
to notice. Now that August is upon
us, it's time to think about having
that greatest of British traditions:
the summer garden party.
There'll be Pimm's, of course. And not forgetting some delicious finger food for guests to help themselves to – but don't worry about spending hours in the kitchen, we've got everything covered
at Waitrose Entertaining, from finger sandwiches and mini wraps to quiches and salads. When it's time for pudding, some of our delicious dessert recipes are so easy to make, you'll have extra
time to enjoy soaking up all the compliments from your guests on a party well done. Finally,
no get-together is complete without a fabulous set up – check out all you need to dress your
table for your gorgeous summer gathering.
Let us take the stress out of hosting your garden party.
All you need is great food, and that's where we come in.
From barbecue meat and finger food, to sandwiches,
salads and buffet fare, we've got everything covered.
There are also plenty of puds and desserts to treat your
guests to. So relax and entertain with ease.
Set the scene
To create some al fresco ambience,
fill glass bottles and jars with flowers
and tea lights and hang from trees.
Use string paper lanterns and bunting across fences and hedges – and don't forget some balloons, an instant way
to say 'party time!' Dress your table
with pretty outdoor dinnerware and brightly coloured napkins, all of which
you can get online and in store.
