Hosting Ladies Night


Baby Shower/Gender Reveal Party Planning


This weekend was a relaxing one. Much needed after our Boston travel adventures last weekend. Other than lots of relaxing, getting my car detailed, and being productive around the house, we attended a Gender Reveal party yesterday.

Brunch: My Favorite Weekend Meal


I'm sure that takes you by no surprise for those that follow along frequently! My weekends often involve Sunday brunch whether at home or at a nifty restaurant to gather with friends.

Brunch is the perfect way to celebrate a baby shower, bridal shower, birthday or even if you just need a reason to celebrate the weekend. I found some creative brunch party ideas on FTD's blog that I wanted to share.

  

From creative DIY floral ice cubes and ice buckets to floral tablescape decor, there are plenty of genius ways to host a memorable brunch party at home.


Their website gave me many cute ideas, I already want to gather up the girls and get the champagne poppin!

After helping to host Kate's Brunch & Baby Shower a few weeks ago, I'm already looking forward to having another brunch at home for future celebrations to come.

Easter Dinner Party Planning

Every year we host an Easter dinner for our friends since many of us don't have family that live close by. We always bake a ham and fry turkey but I'm always looking for new ideas for sides, desserts, and cocktails.

Deviled Eggs


Sparkling pineapple lemonade

Crockpot Maple Brown Sugar Ham

Easter Bunny Rolls

Brussels Sprouts with Cranberries

Sweet Corn Casserole

Glazed Orange Carrots

Strawberry lime moscato punch

Carrot Cheesecake

The Super Bowl Food Table

The big game is this weekend and it's always fun getting together with friends to eat, drink and root for your favorite teams. I made pizza dip last year and have been searching for some new ideas to make for a friend's Super Bowl get-together on Sunday.

Football Appetizers & Entertaining

It's certainly hard for calorie-counting around football season. Everyone knows pizza and beer are consumed in copious amounts during this time. I know we'll be attending a few football parties this season so I went on the hunt for some fun and festive appetizer, finger food and dessert recipes that I thought I would share.

St Patrick's Party Food Ideas + 2013 Recap

I've been looking around for festive appetizer and finger food ideas on Pinterest to make for a St Patrick's day party and stumbled across some cute ideas.

I love celebrating St. Patrick's day with friends. Last year we went to a friend's potluck-style
party so we ate all sorts of festive food and, of course, had way too many Irish car bombs. It was a fun night and the same friends are throwing another St Patty's party this weekend.

One of my friends recreated this Rainbow Fruit Tray with a Pot-O-Gold Rainbow and I thought it was such a cute idea for a St Patty's party.

Are you planning to make any festive appetizers, desserts or cocktails for St Patty's this year?
