For a whimsical summertime celebration, recreate the magical garden setting described in Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. This aesthetic is meant to feel earthy and fanciful, so think about nature-inspired decorative accents, like tablescapes with succulents and lush moss garlands. To really get your guests into the “merry wanderers of the night” mood, submerge them in the experience by including Shakespearean language wherever you can: on invitations, food menus or labels and a creative signature cocktail name.
