Strawberries are currently in season here in PA, and when Cricut asked me to throw a cocktail party, I couldn’t resist throwing a party with a strawberry theme. I absolutely love fresh strawberries, and putting them in desserts and drinks every June is one of my favorite things to do. Every year for my birthday (at the beginning of June), my dad always brings me a ton of freshly picked berries from the first harvest! I look forward to it every year. A strawberry themed party is perfect for spring or summer parties!
I designed this party in no time with the help of my Cricut Explore Air 2, and you can too! This sweet strawberry party is made easy with some halfway-made strawberry desserts and recipes, and easy strawberry cocktails. With DIY projects made with my Cricut, this strawberry themed party becomes Pinterest worthy and is perfect for a cocktail party, birthday party, baby shower, or bridal shower! I have a ton of strawberry party ideas that you can use for any occasion.
Strawberry Themed Party Ideas
A simple flower arrangement with a few peonies from The Bloomery and Mock Orange blooms from my garden was easy and inexpensive! Adding the greenery gave the party a natural and “garden party” feel.
I served a strawberry cake with white buttercream in a simple but elegant lattice pattern and garnished the whole cake with fresh strawberries. You could easily make this strawberry cake yourself with a plain white cake from the store and recipe of buttercream icing.
Strawberry Party Ideas
I adore this sweet berry basket which was a small take home favor for the guests. The ribbon slide tags were made in just a few minutes using the Cricut Explore Air 2 machine and card stock. The Cricut even drew the “berries” with the Cricut pens!
I got the white berry baskets on Amazon:
One of the cocktails I served was a Strawberry Mojito. I customized the cocktail glasses with Cricut foil vinyl.
Aren’t those awesome!? With the Cricut Explore Air 2 and Cricut brand Gold Adhesive Foil, these were an easy project!
Another Cricut project were the Monogram drink tags for the champagne cocktails. A simple monogram made it easy for everyone to find their glasses:
In addition to the drink tags, the champagne glasses sat on a personalized cocktail tray with Cricut adhesive gold foil and traditional vinyl.
Strawberry Themed Food Recipes
One of the small strawberry desserts served were individual pavlovas with lemon curd, strawberries, and mint:
We also had Mini Strawberry Shortcakes, macarons, and strawberry caprese salad skewers.
