Target has a new line of products for the home called Threshold. And to try them out, they gave me a gift certificate for a hundred dollars. Woo hoo! How awesome! But not so fast...
There was one problem with this deal. I went to Target, found a bunch of cool Threshold stuff, and ended up spending more... a lot more out of my own pocket. I couldn't get over the styles, the quality, and definitely the price!
Happy Holidays to you all out there. Getting ready for Thanksgiving I assume? This Party Gal celebrated early this year with our BFF’s who came into town (during our power outage from Sandy, no less).
I love spinach, especially fresh from the farmer's market. This Smoked Gouda Spinach Dip is so flavorful and easy, and is definitely a party favorite. It can even be frozen for up to a month and pulled out just in time for last-minute entertaining.
What's so tasty about it is the smoky flavor from the Gouda and the heat from the chili pepper. I love to serve it with a crunchy baguette or pita chips.
BOO! Did I scare ya? LOL Getting ready for your Halloween Bash? Maybe it’s a monster theme? Maybe you are traditional and love the pumpkins? Whatever your theme – KNOW that quality entertaining does not have to “break the bank”! With Target dollar spot areas… dollar stores… and your creative mind you can certainly entertain on a tight budget!
Honestly, I've never been good at carving pumpkins. Mine always turn out looking so juvenile, it's a little embarrassing. :)
So yesterday I decided to try out pumpkin carving templates. I don't know why I'd never thought of this before, maybe because I thought they'd be hard and weren't worth the money. Well these I got for FREE from HP and they were super easy to use and look how awesome my pumpkins turned out!
Last week, Glam Media sent us a "party pack" filled with fun party supplies, and Bacardi sent us two bottles of their new Piña Colada and Mojito Classic Cocktails Light so we could style a "Shiny Chic" cocktail party.
We wanted to try something new, so we decided to make piña colada and mojito gelées! What's a gelée, you might ask? Well, it's fancy way of saying "Jello shot."
If you read my Facebook page you know I'm always showing off circle fan rosette backdrops. What I love about them is they're easy to make (you just fold paper like a fan and pinch in the middle, then attach a couple fans together) and they add dimension to a wall or dessert table. Here are some of my favorite circle fan rosettes from our site.
