A Summer Cheese and Beer Tasting Party


A Summer Cheese and Beer Tasting Party
A Summer Cheese and Beer Tasting Party - a tasty, easy and quick party to pull off for a summer get-together with friends or to celebrate Father's Day! by BirdsParty.com @birdsparty #cheeseandbeerparty #beerparty #summerparty #fathersday #menpartyideas

Father's Day is this Sunday, and if you need easy, no-cooking-involved, no-fuss but totally delicious ideas to celebrate dad, then this Cheese and Beer Tasting party is IT! I mean, I don't know many dads who'd pass up the chance to taste beer on his special day (or any day...). Or cheese. Or cheese AND beer together! 

Cheese and beer might sound heavy for summer, but we kept the cheeses light, serving it alongside fresh and seasonal produce, all washed down with more refreshing, summery types of beers.

Our Quick & Easy End of Summer Patio Party

Our Quick & Easy End of Summer Patio Party

Summer is coming to an end, boo! And as much as I've been trying to resist the transition into Fall, school for my kiddos starts next week, so there's no denying it any longer. Double boo! But to lessen the blow, and make sure we still make the most of the hot days - yes, it's still 40 deg C in the shade 'round these parts; we celebrated last weekend with an end of summer patio party !  It's our way to enjoy the fine produce on offer at the end of season, and relax before the school routine finally kicks in.

Styling a Smoothie Bar for Summer

Styling a Smoothie Bar for Summer

Summer is the perfect season to try and eat healthier. With an abundance of fresh produce in season, summer's when I create lighter and fresher meals at home. One of my favorite quick snacks/drinks to serve my family is a smoothie. We love it for breakfast, we love it in a bowl, we love it as a tasty treat... So I got thinking it would be so fun to set up a smoothie bar for a party! Such a refreshing idea for a bridal or baby shower, summer brunch or any summer celebration!

A Colorful Cinco de Mayo Mexican Fiesta

A Colorful Cinco de Mayo Mexican Fiesta

I have Latin blood in my veins, so Cinco de Mayo is one celebration I'm particularly drawn to. Mainly because of the lashings of Mojito, churros and tacos involved, let's be honest 😋 Last year we held an outdoors fiesta ( see all the photos, video and recipes here ), so this year I decided to bring the party indoors, but still keeping the colorful and fun vibe that's associated with all Mexican fiestas!

DIY Balloon & Fronds Tropical Party Centerpiece

DIY Balloon & Fronds Tropical Party Centerpiece

One of my favorite elements of the  Party Like Pineapple birthday table was for sure, the balloon and fronds centerpiece! Originally, I wanted to hang a balloons garland above the dessert and drinks station, but when I was making it on the dining table, I realized it would make a fab tropical centerpiece ! And so a new idea was born!

A Mediterranean Inspired Party

A Mediterranean Inspired Party

The south of France has its advantages, mainly regarding food; which in my book is already a great start for any dinner party! Especially the al fresco ones where we get to enjoy the glorious weather and scenery ;) But apart from the great food, the Mediterranean lifestyle oozes simplicity and charm, and therefore makes for a great dinner party theme this time of year!

Tips for Hosting a Relaxed Dinner Party

Tips for Hosting a Relaxed Dinner Party

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of  Santa Margherita USA  . All opinions are 100% mine. The best dinner parties I've ever hosted, or at least the ones I remember most fondly; are the "relaxed" ones where I, the host, get to enjoy every minute of it as much as my guests! So throughout the years, I've tried to hone in on what works and perfect the art of dinner parties by  keeping it all as simple as possible. Whether I have days to plan ahead, or for a last-minute get-together. For me, simplicity is the name of the party game when dinner parties are concerned!
