It should come as no surprise that country singer Kacey Musgraves knows how to party like a rockstar.

The Grammy winning artist, who will turn 28 in August, started her summer celebrations early by gathering her friends for a southern, Alice in Wonderland-inspired “par-tea” for the June issue of Country Living.

“The night had the most fun atmosphere,” Musgraves said of the festive garden party she threw at her Nashville home.

The Golden, Texas native fully embraced the fairy tale-meets-country theme: serving cocktails in vintage tea sets (a cheeky nod to the Mad Hatter’s party), enacting a “dress to impress” hat rule (“The bigger, the better,” she joked), decorating tables with soft pink and pastel floral arrangements, and creating a full dance floor for letting loose.

It’s not a party without some good food and drinks, so Musgraves upped the ante on comfort food dishes with a gourmet twist. Guests snacked on mini pecan scones with country ham and pickled plums and a cucumber, celery and sweet onion salad.

And for dessert: “Roll in the Hay” vanilla cake with raspberry jam and macarons. “It truly felt magical,” Musgraves told the magazine.
