Mojito Monday!

"Mojito Monday's" 
continues with

Strawberry Mojito's!

from Kokocooks

Strawberry Mojitos

4-5 fresh strawberries, depending on size
Small handful of fresh mint leaves
3 oz simple syrup (even amounts of sugar and water, heated until the sugar melts, and cooled to room temperature)
2 oz rum
1 1/2 tsp fresh lime juice
Club soda
Lime slices

Place strawberries, mint, and some ice (crushed ice works best) in a tall glass. Muddle the ingredients together with the back of a spoon (or a muddler if you have one.) Add simple syrup, rum, and lime juice. Pour in enough club soda to fill the glass. Give the mixture a stir, and garnish with fresh strawberries and lime slices.

Great Gift Idea!

I love this idea...

An egg carton
full of mini cupcakes,
what a delightful treat!

These will make wonderful gifts, 
plus it's a great way to serve 
up small bite desserts!

The egg cartons
(and the idea)
are from Bake It Pretty
one of my most favorite blogs ever...

Happy Feet!

I loved these little
Olive Appetizers
featured on

These little guys inspired me to imagine having a penguin themed party, such as...

"Happy Feet" Party...
Happy Feet Party Supplies 
available at Presto Party

Also ideal for a 
"Penguins of Madagasgar" Party...
"Madagascar" Party Supplies 
available at Party City

And don't forget 
one of my favorites...
National Geographic's
"March of the Penguins"
Sorry, no party supplies available 
for this one, but it's a classic & well worth creating your very own 
Penguin themed family movie night!!!

You Light Up My Life!

And you light up my party!!!

Excerpt from Sunset

"Eden Rodriguez, owner of End Design in Santa Rosa and Mill Valley, places garden stake lights or a small battery-operated camping lantern under tablecloths.

To hide an electrical cord, she parts the grass, tucks in the cord, and stakes it with a U-shaped piece of wire. If you're using electric lights, keep fabric 2 feet from the bulb..."

I will have to try this at my 
next backyard evening gathering... 

So easy & So fun!
