Finally pour all the different fruit cocktails into transparent cups, I used some martini transparent plastic glasses, combine some salt and sugar in a small bowl, and pour onto a small, shallow plate. Moisten the rims of the glasses with the juice of a lime, and dip the moistened glass rims into the salt and sugar mixture. Take some of the leaves of the pineapple used for the pina colada and a piece of fruit (watermelon, strawberry, pineapple or a slice of lemon) as seen on the picture and put them into a toothpick, you can also add some paper fruits toothpicks, umbrella toothpicks or custom made themed paper toppers, also used for cupcakes.

Let me know how was the result and if you enjoyed this fruit homemade cocktails!

Nice Ideas for a Tea Bridal Shower!

Veronica Yem

With my soon-to-be sister in-law’s bridal shower being just two weeks away, I am in a frenzy trying to figure out what I’m going to do for decorations.  I’ve decided on the colors – white, pale pink, hot pink and gold.  Now I need to decide what I’ll be putting up.  I’ve got a lot of things I want to do (too many maybe), I just need to get organized.  With so many great things out there, it was hard to narrow it down to just a few things to share with you.

Bridal Shower

karaoke party cupcakes

Last weekend it was Eric’s birthday and this time we decided to make a Karaoke party!

I choose this theme because singing is a fun activity that enables people to interact and laugh at each other and at the same time drink and dance as in any other birthday party.

The decoration for this party was pretty easy, since anything related with music, disco, retro, etc. could fit with the Karaoke theme and music it was easy to find some decoration materials in the stores of Luxembourg.

Here are some pictures, enjoy!

Burgundy Candy Bar

For the 30th Birthday party of my sister in law I also created a candy bar. I followed all the instructions posted before in: Make your own candy bar. I bought around 10 crystal containers, different types of candy mostly in red and pink colors, some cup cake holders, ribbons, table mats and 30th birthday decorations. Finally I completed the candy bar with some desserts like pop cakes, cup cakes, chocolates, macaroons and marshmallows covered with chocolate. Here I share some pictures.
