5 Pretty and Delicious Summer Cocktails for Your Party

Summer Cocktails Recipes

Because yesterday we were talking bar styling, then naturally today's post had to include drinks and recipes. After all, no self-respecting party bar is complete without pretty libations?! 

Here are some of my faves, handpicked for their awesome taste but also good looks, 'cause we all know we eat (or drink) with our eyes first. I'm particularly digging all the recipes that contain some sort of herb: thyme, mint, lavender, rosemary...to make use of my garden bounty this summer! Looks super funky too!!

Awesome Summer Bar Styling Ideas

Though we're all prepping for back to school 'round here, summer is not over yet. No, sir! And we're still making the most of our sunny days by eating and drinking al fresco as much as possible. So bar styling has become a necessity really. They're so practical and can look totally awesome for any occasion.

Here are some of my fave picks from Pinterest that totally scream summer and style! There's something for every taste or celebration - family get-together, drinks with the gals, weddings...because bars are trendy right now, looked totally hip and are also super practical. Trust! 

Hope they spark your imagination, and help you squeeze out the last drops of your 'summer juices' ;)

Paint My Party: Red, White, Blue Nautical Inspired Party Ideas




Okay, so some of us are still feeling the chill, but what better way to escape to sunnier climes than with a little Nautical inspired party eye candy?! 

I've been nursing a cold since last week (boooo), and am determined to lift my spirits anyway I can, so visualization of all things "summery and hot" totally gets my vote! 

Besides, I know for a fact, that our Aussie, Brazilian and southern hemisphere party friends will also appreciate the post! ;)

15 Gorgeous Thanksgiving Tablescape Ideas



Loving the simple/rustic feel of this table.

I could spend the whole day (literally) looking on Pinterest for inspiration on tablescapes. I love seeing people's interpretations of a theme, holiday or event. The basics remain the same (table, plates, centerpieces, napkins...) but the creative flair and imagination comes from each carefully thought-out detail.

So you don't have to spend ages looking, I've selected some of my favorite tables here. But I'm not gonna lie. Some of these are beyond fabulous and detailed that I don't think we can recreate the looks at the very last minute. But creativity is not about copying, it's about being inspired! So I hope you can take away some of the elements in these wonderful tablescapes, and find you own personal style for Thanksgiving! :)

Black and White Halloween Party Ideas!




Have you ever been tempted to go monochrome for Halloween? I did last year, and totally loved it!
Monochrome is sleek, is chic and is one of the Fall color trends for 2013. What's not to love?!

I think this palette is really easy to pull together (think mummies, spiders, bats, crows...) and really helps to add an air of  grown-up sophistication to Halloween festivities. Check out some inspiring ideas I've been pinning:

Pinkalicious Halloween: Pink and Black Halloween Party Ideas!



I think the whole Monster High phenomenon really has had a big part to play in all the trending pink Halloween (or Pink-o-Ween) parties we see emerging everywhere. The fact Halloween also falls in the Pink October month, makes pink the ideal color for this spooky holiday!

So if you fancy a little something girly, glam and totally pinkalicious this Halloween, here are some of our fave ideas we've been pinning:

Summer has ended but some of us are still trying to hold on to the last of the sunny days, before the autumnal freshness fully kick in...and this color palette reflects the transition beautifully. 

Plus, I have a sweet tooth, and something about the title of the post just sits right with today's PAINT MY PARTY colors, don't you think?! :)

Paint My Party: Monochromatic Summer




According to Marie Claire Magazine, "Monochrome - it's this season's it word." - And often, fashion spills into the every day life. Including our party tables! 

So it seemed like the perfect palette to tackle for our second post in the Paint My Party blog series.

A party blogger's life dances to the tune of seasons and holidays.
