Garden Party Menu

Can you tell I love to reminisce about our daughter’s first birthday party? I hope these posts aren’t too repetitive or annoying, but I wanted to share everything consecutively and each post reminds me of another element of the party I enjoyed putting together. Check out my initial post on how the theme and party came together.

As you know, food is a huge part of our lives, so naturally I spent months thinking through the food we’d serve to our family and friends. I wanted the menu to fit with the theme and decided to chose a handful of bite size eats, but also filling tea party foods.



I made a main menu, dessert menu and drink menu in PowerPoint using a free font I found on Etsy and glued each piece of paper to a stained piece of wood. To add a finishing touch, I wrapped burlap twine around the top and bottom. See the pictures below.



Everything we had at the party was homemade. It took a lot of time, but seeing everyone (including our daughter) enjoy the food was so special. A huge thank you to those who brought dishes to the party – it was such a huge help! Below is the main menu with links to recipes (where applicable):

And of course, the best part, the dessert menu:
