Miss Party does love her some good friends, good food and good drinks. Put them all together on a lovely, long summer evening and you’ve got some good times. Try throwing a casual summer party for you and your friends and see for yourself!
Miss Party’s ‘Summer Solstice’ party (held on Saturday, June 21st, which was the actual day of the summer solstice) was that perfect sweet spot of fun people, casual food and drink and great weather that makes the best sort of summer gathering. The stage was set for a relaxing evening for people to catch up with each other and share their summer plans. Guests were asked to bring an appetizer to share so there was a wide variety of flavors and yet the table was still cohesive. It also helped Miss Party keep the food prep for the party to a minimum during a busy time of year. Self-serve bar offerings were simple and straightforward: beer, wine, iced tea and soda.
A fun highlight offered later in the evening, was a ‘Tea Bar’ which offered 5 selections of loose-leaf tea, served hot or cold and Matcha green tea lattes. Miss Bethany, our fine Barista, also did custom blends of the various teas for additional options. For a little sweet, a plate of delicious homemade green tea-white chocolate-almond cookies and shortbread was offered.
It was a lovely evening and the weather was perfect to be outdoors. Later, we got a little fire going in the fire pit to take the chill off. Lots and lots of lanterns, candles and strings of patio lights filled in the warm ambience.
