A few weeks ago, we had some friends over to watch the final round of the Masters and it was the perfect excuse for me to breakout all my pretty serving ware and set a spring party table. While this menu was for a golf tournament, it would work for any golf-theme party, or swap out the cupcake toppers, and it would work for an afternoon bridal or baby shower too.
For the table setting, I clipped a few more azalea stems and added to a large vase on the table. I kept the runner from the tablescape from the prior week, and added all my dishes – mostly a mixture of milk glass and silver pieces.
- Pimento cheese sandwiches (why make it when you buy something just as good? If you haven’t had it yet, the Palmetto pimento cheese is my favorite!)
- Egg salad sandwiches
- Chicken salad sandwiches (I bought my chicken salad pre-made at Costco)
- Game Day onion dip (a family tradition)
- Buffalo chicken dip (I bought mine pre-made at Publix, but this SkinnyTaste version is really yummy too)
- Chocolate Chip cookies
- Veggie tray & dip
- Arnold Palmers & John Daly’s
For the Arnold Palmers, I mixed one gallon of Publix Diet Sweet Tea with a gallon of their lemonade in my drink dispenser. To make it a “John Daly” (for all of you non-golf fans, John Daly is known for some of his wilder antics …), I put out a bottle of Four Roses bourbon to give the punch an extra kick 😉
The cupcakes were delicious and made from a boxed mix. I found the new (at least, new to me) Pillsbury Purely Simple line and bought the mix & the butter cream frosting mix. I added milk, eggs and butter to the cupcake mix and they turned out super light and fluffy. For the frosting, I just added butter and milk. It was a little on the thin side to be able to frost cupcakes with, so I added extra powdered sugar until it was stiff enough to pipe. I bought the golf ball toppers/rings on Amazon for a few dollars, and sprinkled on some green sprinkles that I had on hand from Christmas baking.
Unfortunately, the weather didn’t cooperate and it ended up being colder that day than when we had people over at Christmas! But it was still a great afternoon.
