Outdoor Garden Party!

Outdoor Garden Party!

Don't let summer slip by without enjoying the outdoors and hosting a garden party! Incorporate a menu full of fresh herbs from your garden, and share a relaxing afternoon with family and friends!


If your garden is blossoming with fresh herbs and vegetables, then you are the perfect person to host a garden party! Admire the beautiful plants and flowers while serving a menu full of your own garden's ingredients. And even if you aren't growing anything edible at the moment, you can still host a garden party in your backyard and pick up some fresh herbs at the store!

Happy Cooking!
