I am so excited. The past couple of weeks, a lady from Atlanta began to follow my blog and has commented several times on different postings from chocolatecastles.com. As I began to reply to her, she would send back more of her ideas that she posts on her blog.
She is one talented lady with great party theme ideas and after looking at some of the pictures that she posts, she does know how to throw a party. I ask her permission before telling all ya’ll (yes, I know, how hicky, but I haven’t got to say that in such a long time) about her blog and a couple of her ideas she has told me about.
Her name is Sue and she is a transplant from New Jersey. She quickly adapted to the southern way of entertaining and from looking at her blog, I dare say that you wouldn’t know that she wasn’t born right in the middle of Atlanta holding a glass of sweet tea, with her pinkie sticking straight out. You really need to check out her blog at :
She will be having a party for her neighborhood blogging friends in a couple of weeks and will be serving pink cookies with pink drinks. I had posted info about making the pink lemonade cookies, which you can find at WalMart in the cake mix isle (Pillsbury makes them) She then thought how cute these cookies would look with the fruit drink she makes, so she passed on this drink idea to me.
Welches Strawberry or Raspberry punch and add sparkling water and fresh fruit. Dip the pretty glass in honey and then pink sprinkles.
Just think how pretty your table will look, using pink or white linens and use pink and white polka dot (or striped) ribbon tied around napkins. A vase of pink flowers in the middle. If you don’t have a vase you want to use. Use pretty wrapping paper glued around an old can and set your flowers in the middle. Or use pink jelly beans in a large container and set your vase of flowers right in the middle of the jelly beans. Tie the same ribbon around the container. Very cheap to do and looks fab.
I’m very excited to have my new NBF; I can’t wait to see more party ideas she has up her sleeve. Thanks, Sue, you are a true Southern Belle.
