The party should be as easy and inviting as possible, and with burgers on the menu, it’s all about the accessories and setting the scene. Set up a DIY burger bar and invite guests to experiment with new and flavorful toppings. Need some inspiration? Check out our gourmet burger recipes here.

To help create the perfect setting for your backyard garden party, here are five easy serving tips:

 

1. COCKTAIL PITCHERS

Get people talking and mingling with delicious cocktail pitchers – whether it’s a homemade iced tea, a pretty margarita or a cranberry & St. Germain pitcher, the drink table becomes a part of the décor! 

 

2. ICED FRUIT

Ice cubes with blueberries, strawberries or raspberries and scoops of frozen melon will be an extravagant addition to a hot garden party. Iced fruit can be prepared the day before and takes very little effort for a big impact.

 

3. CUTLERY & NAPKIN IN ONE

Help your guests tackle the buffet with minimal juggling by wrapping the napkin and cutlery together – and if you want to avoid doing the dishes, choose wooden or plastic cutlery that looks like metal.

 

4. SAUCES IN JARS

Make your own burger sauces and serve in jars on the buffet. Your guests can actually see what they are eating and you avoid having a buffet of plastic bottles. 

 

5. FRIES IN PAPER CUPS

Fries are the perfect match for your homemade grilled burgers – sprinkle with salt and fresh thyme and serve in paper cornets for a crafted look.
