Bon Appétit! Summer Spread

The best part of entertaining in my opinion is the opportunity to be creative and share it with others. I recently moved into a new place that has a backyard (something I have never had while living on my own). Since moving, I have been eager to use the outdoor space for entertaining.  A couple of nights ago I had some friends over and decided to set the table in the backyard for a nice summery dinner.

I used simple white plates to give full attention to the food that was being served, a white and blue tablecloth with matching napkins. Some freshly picked  peonies from the garden, a light blue serving bowl for the salad  and an assortment of candles. I also served a delicious watermelon Iced tea in chilled mason jars with frozen watermelon pieces inside for extra flavour.

I kept the menu light for the warm summery night. The main dish was grilled salmon with citrus salsa verde  and a delicious watermelon arugala feta salad with a dash of mint. For dessert I served ripe strawberries from the market with freshly whipped cream that had a touch of orange zest in it for zing.
