Spring has sprung and it’s got the Gabbinbar Homestead team a little bit excited. One of our favourite wedding themes’ is of course the ‘Spring Garden Party’. Spring time in Toowoomba is simply beautiful, the weather is perfect for some outdoor mingling amongst our 25 acres of gardens. So, we thought it’s time we shared our secrets, here’s the ultimate guide to creating your ‘Spring Garden Party’ wedding at Gabbinbar Homestead. Remember, a garden party is always included in our wedding package and is a perfect addition to delight your guests between the ceremony and reception.

Delicious food to impress your guests.

A great addition to your ‘Spring Garden Party’ is our giant antipasto board which encourages your guests to mix and mingle and is the perfect conversation starter. It doesn’t stop there though when it comes to food. Other food options which are ideal for a ‘Spring Garden Party’ are our vintage ice cream trike which can be nestled under a shady tree in the garden or our stylish donut wall looks fabulous and provides a great photo opportunity too. For something slightly more substantial, we have our live cooking stations which can be set up in the garden and probably is one of our most popular food choices when it comes to creating a garden party wedding. Plus, to accompany these delectable goodies a garden party isn’t complete without our Pimm’s Station which is always a hit amongst guests.
