How incredibly lucky have we been recently having such amazing weather in the United Kingdom! I hope the chance in our weather situation has encouraged you all to have a go at designing or decorating some wonderful summer parties.
Below, I have collected a few of my favourite tried and tested recipes and treats, all of which are perfect for enjoying on a hot summers day.
|Beautiful homemade lemonade served in vintage mason jars.. here is a fantastic recipe for lemonade you can easily make from home, (Nigel Slater recipe)|
|Similar to the edible floral ice lollies above these lollies which can be made with lemonade or lime cordial are a lovely treat to serve your guests, if you are stuck on where to buy your petals from, the following website is perfect, (link)|
|These ice lollies are perfect for your little ones, and look incredibly pretty too- simply place lemonade in an ice lolly mould and sprinkle in a few gummy bears for a unique treat|
|...or if you fancy something a little more healthy you can easily substitute the gummy bears for a variety of fruit slice|
|I love this idea as a party favour- freshly picked cherries, strawberries or any other seasonal berry will work perfectly!|
|easy peasy and yet so pretty- store bought meringues with cream and fresh fruit filling- a healthy(ish) alternative to a macaroon|
|Or a summer fruit jelly's are lovely, simple desserts to give to yours guests (recipe here)|
|Dessert/ice lolly or treats table are so easy to decorate during the summer. I love the colour scheme of this display. as well as how simple it all is- a few homemade cocktails, fruit smoothie ice lollies and beautiful flowers are all you need|
