Valentine’s Day Party Ideas!

Valentine’s Day is less than two weeks away and this seems to be a holiday that people tend to stress about a lot.  That definitely should not be the case though.  This holiday is all about having fun and letting the people in your life know how much you care about them.  Sooooo why not have a Valentine’s Day party!? Invite all of your friends, couples, singles, and everyone in between.  Make it a huge party that is so much fun that no one will have to worry about being alone this Valentine’s Day.

TBT: Friendsgiving!

This week’s TBT will inspire you to host your very own Friendsgiving! Enjoy 🙂

Thanksgiving is a week away making this coming weekend Friendsgiving weekend! A Friendsgiving is a gathering that occurs prior to the holiday where friends can join together and have a feast.  It can also be held on Thanksgiving day for people who cannot travel to their home states or countries.  Instead, they gather together and have Thanksgiving with their friends instead of their family.  Whether you are partaking in a Friendsgiving this weekend or next Thursday, here are some crowd pleasing recipes that will have everyone asking for more :-).

Birthday Brunch!

It is that time of the year again! Tomorrow is my birthday and I am super excited about it this year.  I am turning 25, so I consider this to be somewhat of a milestone birthday. I feel like since I will unofficially be entering adulthood (scary) I must celebrate such a grand moment! Oh, did I mention that my birthday is on a Saturday!?!? That’s the most important part!  As you all know, this only happens every so often, and the last time I had a Saturday birthday was when I was turning 20.  Oh my, how things have changed between then and now haha.  However, I say all of this to say, it is only right to have a mimosa filled birthday brunch when your birthday falls on a Saturday! That is exactly what I will be doing tomorrow and I hope this post inspires you to do the same the next time your birthday falls on a Saturday 😉

2016 Rio Olympics Cocktail: The Caipirinha!

Today is the opening day of the 2016 Rio Olympics! This is a very exciting time for people to gather all of their family and friends for a viewing party. Since the Olympics are a very special occasion that only happens every four years, it is only right to have a specialty cocktail for all of your guests to enjoy.  What better drink of choice is there than Brazil’s national cocktail, the caipirinha?!

I have been to Brazil twice and I must say that this cocktail is now my absolute favorite!  It is so simple, yet very versatile.  It will make your guests forget all about this cocktail’s distant cousin, the mojito (haha). Here are some delicious caipirinha recipes that I know you and your guests will love just as much as I do.

Summer Wine Tasting Soirée

August will be here in a couple days and after that, summer is over *tear*  Before summer is a thing of the past and fall quickly approaches, there are plenty of parties to attend and host.  One of my favorite summer parties that my mom and I host every year  is a wine tasting party.  We invite all of our close family and friends for an intimate backyard gathering filled with delicious appetizers, great conversation, and plenty of wine of course!  Here are some ideas that we’ve used over the years that you can incorporate into your very own wine tasting party!
