Happy Friday Lovely Friends
Today is shaping up to be a perfect day. Now that I have your company im all set. Thank you for stopping by.
With the labour Day weekend here its just another excuse to throw a party. I I teamed up with none other than http://www.bedbathandbeyond.ca .
Im not ready to say goodbye to summer and nothing screams BRUNCH more than a Lemony Spritzer.I have officially called this my summer drink-) I thought of a get together about a week ago but knew that I needed a few pieces that were gorgeous yet affordable. Hell yes, I mean thats every hosts dream! I walked into the store not knowing what to expect and can I tell you that I was SO IMPRESSED.
I initially scheduled in an hour to look around but lets just say 2.5hrs later I was finally done. Bed Bath and Beyond is a one stop shop for the entire household. What makes a good host you ask, well I happen to think im a professional in this department. I grew up in a huge family and I loved making things extra special for our guests. There is a certain style and grace when the place is well decorated and the company just adds the extra spice to the occasion.
My beautiful daughter #minime helped lay out the spread and suggested adding some greenery from our country garden. I have to admit this took setup to the next level. The element of marble dinnerware, crystal stemware, cast iron trays and a super versatile 6 in one server. We managed to find a 4 gallon party tub which was just so handy and beautiful aswell.
Janoska Lemon Spritz RECIPE
1 Fresh lemon and Lime
500ml Sparking Water or Soda Water
250ml Orange Juice (Fresh is preferred)
40z Kettle One Botanical Vodka (Optional
Place all of the ingredients into a pitcher or punch bowl
Your guests will be #bubbly and keep coming back for top ups assured -)
I love serving this drink in a fancy champagne flute with a gorgeous paper straw.
The next question is what do we serve with the fresh and zesty cocktail. I decided to go with a medium bodied french brie topped with seasonal peaches. Its a good idea to warm the naan bread in the BBQ or oven on extremely low to pair things up in the cast iron pans which retain heat perfectly.
The main meal comprised of a seasonal green salad and salmon (Yum Yum)
We couldn’t help but add homemade vanilla, coconut cupcakes just to ensure our guests would never leave -serves in mini stainless bowls with a gold utensils to up the level of cuteness. Pintrest is such a fabulous resource for the beginner host to an advanced host who just wants to change things up. Question is, are you coming to my next party?
I want to hear your tips and tricks?. As much I love hosting and so eager to learn new things aswell. Until next time, have a lovely day and see you on the gram.
