Garden party, plants or garden signs or garden decorations.

2 Days Before – Once you have your RSVP’s, take inventory of what you will be serving (for a causal and easy party cocktails and appetizers) and get together the dishes, crock pots for keeping dips warm, etc.  Set up your buffet with plates, napkins, cups, wine glasses, plastic-ware or silverware and any decorations to go with your theme.  This would also be a good time to clean your home and plan your menu.

Day Before – put your list of groceries together for the buffet. Keep your menu simple and delicious with an assortment of finger foods and have both alcohol and non alcohol drinks available.
