Spring is here… It’s time for a Garden Party

Posted by No 1 Family Estate on October 23, 2019

It’s that time of year… We’re waiting for budburst and Marlborough is beginning to blossom with longer daylight hours and warmer weather. Hurrah, Spring is here!

It’s also time for one of the highlights on Marlborough’s social calendar. New Zealand’s premier garden event, Garden Marlborough runs from 7th to 10th November.

Spring is the perfect season to hold your own Garden Party. So, we thought we’d share three tips to help you do just that!

Celebrate the Season:

A seasonal menu is always a big hit. There’s so much to choose from come spring. New season asparagus and perfectly sweet peas are wonderful fresh ingredients to use in your salad. Plus, berries are coming into season, so dessert is easily sorted!

Be prepared:

We all know Marlborough is #brillianteveryday, but alas a Spring shower is always a possibility. If you don’t have suitable indoor space to accommodate a wet weather day, then a marquee or gazebo could be a wise investment. We have no doubt that your guests will want to stay awhile, so an outside heater, firepit, or even a large supply of toasty rugs and throws will allow them to party into the evening.

Don’t forget the bubbles:

What’s a party without bubbles? That’s where we come in. Our mixed cases are perfect for when you’re planning a party. Plus, we also have a special promotion that will ensure that when you’re asked to a Spring Garden Party your wine is perfectly dressed for the occasion. Buy any mixed case from our online store between 25th October and 15th December and receive a free chiller bag*. Shop our range of Mixed Cases HERE.
