The Ultimate Garden Party

Entertaining loved ones in the garden is one of our personal highlights of summer, weather permitting of course. Celebrate a traditional British summer with a very British garden party on the lawn amongst the bloomed bulbs or out on the perfectly preened patio. Whether you want to throw a sophisticated soiree or a botanical bash, Dartington are here to help you become the hostess with the mostess!

Be the centre of attention

Sometimes less can be more, especially when it comes to table dressing! Finishing touches can make all the difference, so keep it simple by floating flowers that strike your fancy – our choice would be peonies – in bowls, arranged with our Beehive Votive candles. With a selection of eight colours, it is completely your choice to go classic with clear or be bold with blues.

The perfect pitch

There is no beverage quintessentially more British than Pimms so have two pitchers festooned with fruit and mint sprigs floating around for your guests to help themselves. Our large ice lip jug is sure to keep everyone topped up throughout the day, allowing you to enjoy the sunny special occasion too.

Sandwich and salad seduction

If you’re planning a more casual get together, you cannot go wrong with picnic inspired menu. Crustless finger sandwiches and bitesize desserts are a great way for guests to satiate their hunger whilst mingling. The Cath Kidston Highgate Rose 3 tier cake stand is a brilliant way to incorporate florals into your table décor and present your edibles in an elegant fashion. A selection of colourful summer salads is another simple way to add colour to your table – Serve in one of our Daisy glass bowls.
