Now that Spring is here I thought it would be nice to throw a little garden party outside under the sun. However, living on the 20th floor of an apartment building has its disadvantages. My balcony terrace tends to be rather windy this time of year so after some maneuvering I was forced to move my party inside. Nevertheless, here is my garden party, New York City style. Anyone who is willing to spend some extra money can create a beautiful tablescape, but few can do it on a budget. I added some simple elegance by using inexpensive paper doilies to create a table runner and banner. Miniature monogrammed potted plants act as place cards and watercress sandwiches are a refreshing treat. No need to spend money on napkin rings when some simple polka dotted ribbon does the trick. Homemade buttermilk scones and strawberry preserves act as my something sweet. A teacup is the right vessel for some fresh strawberries and my new ivory lace napkins are the perfect fit for this indoor garden inspired party.
