How to Host a Garden Party
Host a Great Garden Party
Skip costly cut flowers and go for a grouping of potted plants that will live on after the party is over. Place them in baskets or pails for a festive touch.
Create floral patterned packets from craft paper ahead of time using WD's mini seed packet template. Also, print a sheet or two of packet labels onto adhesive-backed paper. Arrange these materials on the seed swap table with some markers so guests can repackage and label them with the plant name, who provided the seeds and any special planting instructions.
Serve guests garden-fresh foods, like assorted cut-up vegetables with an herbed dip, or fruit kebabs on wood skewers (pineapple chunks with red and green grapes are colorfulandtasty).
A large loaf pan will make this look like a window box planter. Combine chocolate cake, pudding and chocolate peppermints, then top with crushed cookies for dirt, mint sprigs for seedlings and gummy worms for fun. Use a clean garden tool as a whimsical serving utensil.

Fill a pitcher with one of these:
• Lemonade with club soda and cucumber spears
• Puréed watermelon and seltzer
• Herbal tea with sprigs of mint and a squirt of honey
A cheery tablecloth and floral napkins give your spread a colorful lift.
