Our top 15 recipes and ideas for a fabulous Pride party

Whether you’re throwing a party at home or bringing a dish to someone else’s do, we have all the Pride party ideas you need to enjoy some gorgeous food and drink while having fun throughout Pride month – and beyond! We have prep-ahead platters to help make your gathering run smoothly, easy finger food, super snacks, indulgent desserts and refreshing drinks. If you’re keeping it low-key this year with a spot of baking or a picnic, we have lots more Pride recipes to inspire you to get creative!

  1. Be prepared

    Inviting family and friends over, but don’t feel like the host with the most? Think low-stress, make-ahead bowls of beautiful food and sharing platters to keep everyone dipping back in for more. If you want to serve hot food but avoid spending too much time in the kitchen, dust off the slow-cooker. In summer? You heard right! This flavoursome pulled pork souvlaki ticks all the boxes, just whack it in the slow-cooker for a few hours and get on with other things. Pasta, rice and couscous salads always go down well at a do, but how about this eye-catching cobb salad? It’s great for adding colour to your Pride decorations.

    Everyone will keep returning to this vegan platter packed with interesting flavours and textures, including a Middle Eastern muhammara dip. And finally, if you’re throwing a smaller gathering, these spiced tuna steak burgers with fried pickles are something special and a real talking point!

  2. Lay on a super spread

    You might want picky bits to let guests graze, or kid-friendly bites they can enjoy outside. Step forward our ’nduja and mozzarella dough balls, a super-easy pizza base mix filled with spicy meaty ’nduja and melting mozzarella, which can be made in advance – you can even prep the dip the day before.

    One of our easiest Pride party food ideas has to be these cute mini Jersey Royal jackets made with just a handful of ingredients. And for something that will feed a crowd, you can’t beat a pie – this eye-catching creation is achieved with frozen squash, a bag of spinach and a jar of roasted peppers – so easy, so delicious!

  3. Serve a show-stopper

    If you can’t choose between making a cake or homemade ice cream, give your guests both! Or rather frozen yogurt with our stunning rainbow frozen yogurt cake – you can even make it without an ice cream maker.

    For something smaller, yet equally stunning, serve this oh-so-pretty Trans Pride Swiss roll or, if you have some cheesecake lovers in your crowd, have a go at this beautiful blueberry and ginger creation. Vegan guests can tuck in, but everyone will want a slice – it serves 16, so they’ll be plenty to go round.

    You’ve likely tasted or even made a rainbow cake, but how about a rainbow pavlova? This is seriously impressive stuff that’s so wonderfully vibrant, it can be the centrepiece of your Pride decorations.

  4. Keep cool

    If temperatures rise, you’ll need some cool refreshment, so what could be more perfect than these fun and fruity rainbow ice lollies for your Pride party? This step-by-step guide will ensure neat results, the trick is to be patient! For something even fruitier, these berry skewers are the business, so sweet and juicy, and healthy too. If you get the barbecue out, these are ideal grilled over the coals.

    Keep cool
  5. Say cheers to Pride…

    …with a glass of punch. Whether you’re after non-alcoholic Pride drinks or want to incorporate your favourite wine or spirit, try serving these twists on classic recipes to get your guests talking. Add crushed raspberries and grapefruit juice to create a fresh and zingy pink lemonade. For a lower-cost and lower-alcohol punch, try this pretty white wine sangria, featuring elderflower cordial and summer fruits. Enjoy during your Pride party or during a quieter moment when everyone’s gone home – the tidying up can wait. Cheers!
