Peach Dinner Party: How to Decorate?
You have a peach of my heart. Our gorgeous tablescape featured a crisp, white tablecloth and a delicate baby pink table runner. Each place setting included yellow melamine dinner and salad plates. Each place setting also featured Mikasa Cheers water glasses and wine glasses. We kept the floral arrangements simple with a bouquet of peach tulips roses in a yellow vase.
Best Peach Recipes for Summer: What Wine to Serve
Happy Birthday Jordan! Jordan Winery was founded in Sonoma in 1972 by Tom and Sally Jordan and celebrated their 50th anniversary. This family-own vineyard focuses on two wines: Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon. We featured Jordan wines a few times on the blog, Spring Dinner, Friendsgiving, Carrot Single Ingredient Dinner Party and Memorial Day BBQ. These wines are perfect all year round. Today, we served their 2020 Chardonnay and 2018 Cabernet.
When there’s a wine, there’s a way. We paired the appetizers with the 2018 Jordan Chardonnay. This light and refreshing, vibrant white wine has aromas of honeysuckle, lemon blossom and Fuji apple.
Sip back and relax. We paired the mains with the 2018 Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon. This cab has aromas of black cherry, boysenberry and black fig as well as smooth, rich tannins. We recommend decanting for an hour before drinking.

Best Peach Recipes for Summer: Lamb Burgers with Peach Chutney
You have a peach of my heart. For the main, we grilled lamb burgers and topped them with peach chutney. This recipe is so easy. We bought premade lamb burgers and just seasoned with a little bit of salt and pepper on each side before placing on the grill. The peach chutney is really what makes this burger outstanding. This course paired nicely with the Cab.

A peach of cake. We made mini peach cheesecakes and topped them with peach sauce. This filling recipe is quite versatile, so you can top with any seasonal fruit sauce. We made them in cupcake pans and then removed the cupcake liners after they cooked.

I’m so in love with this idea. I love the whole themed meal thing. I think I need to do something like this.
First of all, I never heard of lamburgers before. Then, you threw peach chutney on there, which sounds amazing. I HAVE to make these!
OOh. Those burgers sound amazing. I love the wine, too. I think it’s time for me to have a peach dinner!
Peach wine sounds gorgeous! I would definitely love to try some!
This looks yummy and can’t find a lot of dessert with peaches. So, it’s interesting to find this recipe.
We live near a peach orchard and we get fresh peaches every week in the summertime. I’m going to put the to good use with these yummy recipes.
