Summer is slowly coming to an end (so soon)! The kids will be heading back to school in the next few weeks -- so it's time to gather your friends and family for one last garden party to celebrate the long warm days of leisure. I like to host a back to school party every year. It's a great way to get the kids excited about the upcoming school year and it's just another reason to have people over.
My favorite party to throw is a garden party. What could be better than being outside in the sunshine with flowers in bloom all around? I love coming up with fresh, fun and festive drinks to share at all of my gatherings, and I think a child's garden party should be no different. Following are six eco-friendly garden party drinks that would be perfect to serve up and enjoy at a garden party -- or to indulge in on any warm day!
#1: Watermelon Punch Bowl + Recipe
What is better than our favorite summer organic fruit doubling as a beverage and the punch bowl all in one? This watermelon drink recipe sounds refreshing and delicious – however, the bowl may be my favorite part. What a great way to reuse something that would otherwise have been immediately trashed. This garden party drink is sure to please all of your guests!
#2: Fruit Shapes Water
We all know that water is probably the best beverage you could serve your children. Getting them to drink it as a special garden party drink may be a little difficult. That was until I found this fantastic recipe for water garnished with shapes cut from organic fruit. What a fantastic idea! I can see kids sipping and munching on fresh fruit all afternoon with this yummy concoction. It’s a great way to use up the abundance of fruit in my summer CSA.
#3: Little ‘Ritas
Anytime we have a get together that includes adult margaritas, my son always moans that there isn’t a frozen mocktail for him! Let’s face it, all children love a fancy frozen beverage, why not offer up a Rita that is perfect for the littles? This yummy recipe includes organic limes, orange juice and agave – yum! This is a great recipe if your lime tree is producing limes faster than you can consume them – like at our house! I think I will have one of these myself, please.
