The Sisters’ Soiree: Garden Bar Luncheon!

April 3, 2014 by Ashley Willis

Garden Bar Soiree (

Spring is in the air and there is no better way to celebrate the warmer weather and sunny days than with an afternoon luncheon with your favorite group of girls. We’re ditching the heavy foods today for a lighter fare. Our Garden Bar Soiree allows our guests to create their own unique salad, piled high with their favorite toppings!

The Set-Up:

We turned the kitchen counter in to the garden bar buffet, starting with a blend of romaine lettuce, shredded carrots and broccoli tossed together.

From there we sliced and diced our favorite salad ingredients that we stocked up on from our local Whole Foods in Red Bank, NJ. From tomatoes, yellow peppers, grilled chicken, chic peas, black beans, avocados, red onions and many more!

The Look:

We kept the kitchen Garden Bar free from any distractions so the fresh ingredients would be the pop of color our guests’ eyes are drawn too. For an added, yet simple touch, we used clear glass bottle vases to hold simple arrangements of flowers from our local market.

The Drinks:

A light lunch needs an ever lighter drink to match! We stuck to Pellegrino Sparking Waters and for a cocktails added Barefoot Pinot Grigio Wine.
