Southern Entertaining: Front Porch Party with Dessert and Drinks

There is nothing more fun than a soiree with a few of your girls. Looking for a casual way to entertain your friends with little effort? Why not try a front porch party with desserts and drinks. Here are some of our tips for a front porch party with dessert and drinks. Share images of your parties with us on social media using the hashtag #blacksouthernbelle.

Southern Entertaining: Front Porch Party with Dessert and Drinks

Seating: Create a casual seating environment using your favorite indoor and outdoor furniture for a cozy yet stylish party. A mix of furniture styles and sizes creates a unique look with what you already have in your home.

Marble Ice: If you are hosting a day time soiree, it can get quite warm. To ensure your drinks stay cool longer, try using marble cocktail cubes to make sure your guests stay cool and refreshed while they party.


Set The Table: You don’t need a formal table but don’t be afraid to bring out some of your favorite dishware and glassware for your dessert and drink tasting.

Florals: A beautiful floral centerpiece is a great way to catch the eye of your guests and encourage them to gather in a certain area. For a front porch party, be sure to incorporate lots of greenery and free-flowing flowers.

Dessert Station: Create a dessert station using a bar cart or favorite table with a few of your favorite pieces of serving ware. From cake plates to metal trays, mix and match for a layered look that will show off some of your favorite desserts. Encourage your guests to bring their own specialties or hire a chef to create a tasting menu for your friends. No matter what, have fun and don’t think about the calories.

    Love you site! Thank you for trail blazing! Pulling from who you are! I am helping mentor a young man named Kevin (a junior in high school) who has an interest in Interior Design. Sadly my business is too small to take him on as a full intern. That said, he has an opportunity to do a house renovation with a team of people young and old from the community in Charleston, SC. The house is to be influenced by the Gullah Geechee culture. He reached out again to me to help him. So here I am! I am sincerely honored.

    I feel there is a lot of singing, Storytelling, baskets, and food…yes, rich culture but there is not enough documentation of how the modern descendants live and design. The imprint of built form and design is not really documented well. The Gullah Archetype is there but needs to be further revealed in a living way. A way of today. I am trying to show this young man how origins and traditions are pulled through to the Now. You are showing this beautifully through your lifestyle images. I have pinned your hard work on a Gullah Board in Pintrest for Kevin to see and learn from.

    Thank you and Keep it up!

    ps Are those Depression Era blue-green goblets from Fenton?
