With outdoor entertaining season coming up I thought I would post a few photos from a 'green theme' birthday party BBQ I had last year for my husband's birthday.
I hope there are a few photos that spark some inspiration for your outdoor event this summer.
Lanterns left over from my wedding and a table runner I made with outdoor fabric.
I made green straw flags with everyone's name on them (so they could easily identify their drink) - you can order custom straw flags for your event from me HERE and I got green stripe paper straws from Hey Yo Yo!
Green Punch and Pop choices.
My husband is a healthy eater and doesn't like sweets so I made him a cake made of fruit (not to be mistaken for a 'fruit cake' hehe) I also made another 'garden theme' cake for a friend whose birthday was close to our BBQ.
I also made these fun BBQ theme cupcakes. I used orange sprinkles to look like fire, black icing gel for the grill lines and cup up jube jube, hot tamales and caramels for the meat and skewers.
I forgot to take a photo of my veggie and fruit trays - but I did ALL GREEN veggies and fruit on each tray.
Veg: Green pepper, celery, broccoli, cucumbers, snow peas.
Fruit: Green apple slices, kiwi, green grapes, honeydew mellon
I made green outdoor pillows for our Muskoka chairs to make them even more comfy!
I gave my husband a Birch Tree for our back yard as his gift!
We played Ladder Ball and Bocce Ball & had a bonfire & fireworks!
Sophie is all tired our from too much partying!
Happy BBQ and outdoor entertaining season!
