Who’s ready to get tropical?! To be honest, I may have gone a litttttle over board on our tropical garden party and DIY fruit necklaces, but when IZZE asks us to throw a Friendsday Night party, we go big! Even still, I have to say this one might be my new running favorite, and can we say #worthit?!
Aside from the fact that we may have a slight IZZE addiction here at the studio, it also happens to make the perfect warm afternoon cocktail, and I think you’re going to love the garden party details that we styled to go with the new (limited-time!) Sparkling Citrus Ginger and Sparkling Grapefruit colors.
First things first, we needed the perfect garden location to set the tone and we were able to snag this pretty greenhouse in Houston that one of my friends got married at recently. It was the perfect mix of outdoors meets the token Sugar & Cloth bright white space. Basically it’s my spirit garden, ha!
DIY Fruit Necklaces
To make the giant fruit necklaces, drill two holes in either side of the oval wooden plaque towards the top edges. String the brown cord through and start hot gluing the faux fruits to the wood.
Once you have all of your fruit glued on, string on the wooden beads and tie the cord in a double knot in the back and you’re all set!
And the finishing touch to this garden party was a DIY boxwood backdrop! Our friend Meredith made this one, and we added a few palm leaves to it for an added touch of tropical.
Do you all have any go-to Summer cocktails and recipes that you love that we should try?! Let us know! In the meantime, we’re clearly biased, but we definitely recommend the IZZE cocktails or mocktails!
Thanks so much to IZZE for partnering with us on this Friendsday Night series that we LOVE!
