We love the no-fuss vibe of a wine and cheese party, but something about a big block of Cheddar feels too hearty for 90-degree days. Try this refreshing menu of chilled dip, tea sandwiches, and light salads instead.
Breezy Table Setting
Start simple: Echo the natural beauty of a garden setting with a neutral color scheme of cool leafy greens and crisp white linens. (Our menu was even inspired by the color palette!)
Mix and match: Skip the formal centerpiece and fill glass decanters and carafes with fresh-cut ferns and flowers such as Queen Anne's lace or oakleaf hydrangeas.
Add a touch of glam: Tuck unexpected touches of silver in with serving pieces—julep cups are a standout on the vegetable tray.
