The Garden Party Setting

May 24th, 2023

Summer celebrations mean you’re looking to upgrade your table from the everyday to the extraordinary. From the tablecloth to dinnerware and the final additions, discover how to create the perfect tablescape for every occasion and mood. 

The Garden Party Setting is a bountiful floral symphony, so let your table flourish and come to life with these fresh, pastel shades. Signaling the turning of seasons, this setting is meant for leisurely days that turn into everlasting nights, whether you’re under a summertime starlight or just around your dining room table.


Make the ultimate floral statement with this fresh tablecloth full of blooming buds. The colorful motif sets the scene for you to work off of with the rest of your unique additions.


Create an intricate scene with reversible patterned placemats and printed napkins, then complement the colors with natural notes of tortoise.


Finishing touches: fresh green and white florals, plus bunches of grapes to create the feeling that you’re right in a backyard setting.


4 eggs
1 pie crust
1/2 cup of mayo
1/2 cup of half and half
Salt and pepper to taste
1 bunch of asparagus
3/4 cup of shredded Gruyère or Swiss cheese

I use Pillsbury pie crust. Bring the pie crust to room temperature. Steam your asparagus making sure it is crisp tender. 
Chop up your steamed asparagus. Spread the pie crust in your pie dish.
Spread the cheese over the pie crust.
Next spread the asparagus on top.
Whisk 4 eggs with the Mayo and half and half until light and frothy.
Add about a half a teaspoon to a teaspoon of salt and several generous grind of pepper.
Pour over cheese and asparagus.
Bake in a preheated 350 oven for about 30 minutes or until it is set.
