Summer garden party in Blockley, Gloucestershire

Strawberry tower. Stuck together with chocolate. Make your own eton mess! Was making this while they ate the main course. Patience much.
e had done a similar event for this couple last year as a house warming party for their friends and family when they they moved into their new house. Also a Christmas canape party. This time round it was for their neighbours.
'Chinese hat' marquee - by Good Intents - I love the chinese hat style.
Cones of goats cheese with beetroot relish (sat in rock salt) - ice cream cones....... with a difference!
Thai style caramel pork - always goes down so well every time we have served it. This completely went!
Thyme flowers on top of prawns - fresh from their herb garden. 10 different types of canape - if you're going to do it do it in style!
Did not adjust the brightness on this pic - it really was this bright!
Home smoked chicken on heart shaped sweet potato scones with sweetcorn relish
Potato, red onion and rosemary (from my garden) foccacia to go on the tables with pesto pinwheel bread
Buffet main course
Charlie's buffet - snapped before the guests arrived ;)
Puff pastry and parma ham wrapped asparagus
Thyme flowers also featured on the salmon.........
Triple chocolate mousse cake from Martha Stewar's recipe - but we made it into a large one rather than individuals. This is a wow cake - so light and fluffy!
There was also caramelised apricot tart and shotglasses of Pimm's Jelly (seen in the background in the pic above) - don't want them to go hungry!
