Food for our Pampered Spa Party

Published May 8, 2012 by pinkpossibilities

We had so much fun designing and putting all of our thoughts and ideas that were on paper to life.
It was a spa party so we figured other than the cupcakes we would try to keep it healthy and yummy.
Our color chooses were: Yellow, Green and Orange so that we could incorporate the citrus fruits.

What spa party is great without chocolate covered strawberries. (be mindful though if you decide to make some of your own, that once you dip & cover the strawberries with chocolate they are only good for maybe 2 days top. so the closer to the party time or when you want to enjoy them the better 🙂

I used my circle glass dish and filled it with: orange slices, green grapes, yellow pineapple chunks and orange canteloupe rounds. Spear one with a toothpick and dip it in the fruit dip and you have a party in your tummy.

Cucumber slices. 1 cucumber peeled then sliced and 1 cucumber just sliced. Depending on people’s preference. Or to use on your eyes during your face mask.

Now we have a couple of my cute white ceramic mugs with carrot sticks, celery sticks and yellow bell pepper slices.
we had a Lipton Onion dip for the veggies.

time for dessert: we had yellow cupcakes with a fluffy frosting.

We made a homemade mint lemonade the night before and garnished our glasses with yellow, orange and green striped straws and orange, lemon and lime slices to make the straws.


Watermelon Pirate Ship and Veggie Island

Published May 5, 2012 by pinkpossibilities

At our Pirate Party we covered the island in our kitchen with a water and sand decor, creating a place for our watermelon pirate ship and veggie island. They were a hit with our guests.

I used blue Easter grass for the water. Placed a couple of my agua glass rectangle dished for the sword picks and veggie and fruit dips. Then topped if off with our ship.

How to make the ship: hollow out a watermelon shell, making sure you angle the opening to look like a ship. then to make the masts, I used to bread kneaders that are mixer attachments and tied on the paper masts. then you fill the watermelon up with all your fruits. we used pineapple, cantelope, grapes and of course watermelon 🙂

Here is my model Jonathan showing off the ship.

Now we take a few steps over and we arrive at Veggie Island. The mounds are cabbage halfs. then to make the palm trees. take a carrot and make notches criss crossing down the carrot to look like the bark of a palm tree, using toothpicks, place them in the bottom of the carrot and poke into the cabbages. then make zip zags through the middle of a green bell pepper and separate. take more toothpicks, half them and attach the green bell pepper to the top of the carrots. Now to make the sand. I used brown sugar and it looked awesome.
