Cherry Party Ideas

I was recently asked for some ideas for a cherry themed party. This particular event happens to be a girlfriend gathering, but these cherry party ideas would work great for any occasion- a summer gathering, bridal shower, you name it. I decided to pair aqua and red for this party theme. I think the aqua adds a vintage twist that is just darling.

Red & aqua table scape, vintage inspired cherry invitations, cherry tea towels to use as decor or as a hostess gift, cherry mojito, red dot luncheon napkin and pale blue 10″ plate via Plates and Napkins.

Let cherries inspire your menu. Look for salad recipes that incorporate cherries (like this cherry-arugula salad) or other ways to use cherries in your more typical recipes. For the sweet stuff try chocolate cherry mousse shots, mini cherry pies, cherry vanilla cupcakes, or chocolate cherry cakes. You can also pick up some coordinate fabric (like this aqua dot) and make simple runners for your dessert table, drink area, or even main tables.

For refreshments, try cherry lemonade to keep guest cool. For favors, why not send guests home with a bag of fresh cherries that they can enjoy later? These cherry tags would be darling to tie the bags closed with. And I am loving these cherry thank you cards. Complete your cherry theme by writing each guest a nice thank you note after the party.

    I recently paired cherries with Rose’ wine. I let the maraschino cherries sit in the wine for 1 hour and I felt it added a nice sweetness to the flavor of the wine without diluting it. I love the cherry theme ideas especially for a summer party.

    This is a very timely post given that cherry season is upon us in California. I love cherries, but I love them most while they are in season :)
