A pinch of the Irish to all those not wearing green today! I’m rocking it out with my high waisted green pencil skirt from the Luella collection at Target last century. Haha. I’m serious. It is from forever ago but Luella is still in style and this skirt is still bright and festive.Read More
I love to make sangria, especially when the family travels to come and visit. It’s fun to get all the ladies in the kitchen to help cut up some fruit and have some much-needed bonding time. This particular time we were unable to make it together. Boo-hoo.
I forfeited the opportunity to go to Busch Gardens in order to prepare for a surprise party for my brother and sister-in-law. See more of that story here. I realized that Tropical Fruit Punch Sangria would be the perfect refreshment after the whole gang got back home. Busch Gardens is in Tampa and we live in Orlando so after they spent all day sweating balls at a theme park, they had to drive two hours to finally be able to sit down and relax at home. I was sure that they would have a huge smile on their face if I handed them a cup mason jar of Tropical Fruit Punch Sangria upon waltzing in the front door.Read More
Another holiday is under way! We love the holidays. No matter what it is, Jesus is in the center of it all. He’s truly the glue that holds our family and friends together.
Entertaining guests is so much fun—and such a blessing. The look on their faces when they see all of the decorations and the dining table perfectly set is priceless. To top that there is nothing like filling up somebody’s cup with a refreshing juice or drink, especially if they come in a mason jars. I have been dreaming of making a Spring White Wine Sangria for quite a while. I knew I would have to make it a couple times before Easter so that I can get perfect pictures and become a pro for the real deal at our brunch on Resurrection Sunday.Read More
Today I am making something that is not usual for us to make at home. Simple syrup! And not just any simple syrup it’s Rhubarb Simple Syrup. I have plans to make a Spring White Wine Sangria for Easter Sunday brunch. This is going to be the perfect addition to make our party cocktail pop!
You won’t typically see a simple syrup up on the blog because the main ingredient tends to be white sugar. Eek!! We only have that in the craft studio and it’s strictly meant for crafts. For all the family and friends that come to visit and wake up craving coffee in the morning, I refuse to serve them their coffee with white sugar. Sorry, I’m not sorry.Read More
