The month of June beckons with the lure of outdoor festivities and the start of summer party season. It’s also the time when there are nationwide gay pride parades and celebrations. Whether you are gay or straight, it’s the perfect time to throw a party to honor Gay Pride—and serve food and drink in the colors of the rainbow. Guests will be wowed when you set up the buffet to emphasize the colors starting with bright red and ending in intense violet. Each recipe includes other suggestions for each color and some party shortcuts that will appeal to those who have no time to cook. The playlist and scene are designed to keep the energy level at this gathering UP.
