Family Garden Party for Spring

Planning a fresh spring fête is the perfect remedy for restless winter days. Join me as we dream up a delightful family-oriented garden party where guests dress in the casual code of a bygone era, the fathers compete in a friendly game of lawn tennis, their wives converse while sipping lemonade and the refreshment tables overflow with decadent desserts and flamboyant floral arrangements.
