After an exciting Easter break, its time to indulge further with great food, fun and friends as we approach May bank Holiday! The Julian Charles team have created the perfect formula for a bank holiday to remember, because keeping everyone entertained can be easier than you think!
Be the hostess with the mostess and invite friends and family over to your alfresco get together. If you’re lucky enough to catch a spot of sun, create the perfect garden party set up with Chinese lanterns, floral bunting hung from tree to tree and twinkling tea-lights to create ambience and relaxation to your spring table spread. Our wooden chalkboard is the perfect addition to display your menu on for the evening.
Serve your guest sparkling mimosa’s on arrival and some freshly squeezed cloudy lemonade for the little ones. Offer french bread, humus, olives, cheese and cured meats on a wooden ploughman's board for rustic antipasti style nibbles. Follow this with some freshly charred meat and vegetable skewers fresh off the BBQ with a light spring strawberry salad. Guests who love the outdoors will love getting involved with the cooking, so why not display an array of meat, vegetables and skewers that they can assemble and char themselves! Finish with some sweet treats and melt some marshmallows over the fire to create smores, the kids are bound to love these!

By the sea shore
