A MOTHER’S DAY FLORAL-INSPIRED DESSERT COCKTAIL: ‘VANILLA PINK ROSE’

A FLORAL-INSPIRED MOTHER'S DAY COCKTAIL: 'VANILLA PINK ROSE'

If you haven’t read yesterday’s post, I rounded-up a mouth-watering collection of floral-inspired desserts to try for Mother’s day. Today, I’m sharing a cocktail that is also floral-inspired. Roses are meant to symbolize LOVE and that was the reason behind sharing my cocktail recipe to be served on Mother’s day.

If you’re hosting a Mother’s day brunch, make it fancier by treating mom to my ‘Vanilla Pink Rose’ cocktail…perfectly paired with one of these floral-inspired desserts! A dash of rose water to the cocktail mix, a drop of pink food coloring, and garnish with an edible rose petal – transforms the appearance of this cocktail to a dainty and may I add, girly one..a beautifully simple and sweet cocktail for spring! My recipe can also be served alone as a dessert cocktail. If you’re going to serve it like this, than do what I did…in these pictures, I actually used my mini coupe glasses!

This refreshing cocktail is sweet but light and tastes even better when you pre-mix. Let the chocolate bean flavor with vanilla scent of the Creme de Cacao, the creamy flavor of the Whipped Vodka and dash of rose water combine longer.

A EASTER TABLESCAPE INSPIRATION PERFECT FOR A BRUNCH OR LUNCHEON

I came across these pictures in my photo library and noticed I never posted about this Easter tablescape! So of course, I had to share a little of what I created here.

This tabletop is perfect for an Easter brunch or luncheon celebration! My inspiration came from an array of tulips I had picked up at the grocery store. A large centerpiece filled with an abundance of light pink, dark pink, and white tulips adorned the table. I dressed the table with a neutral colored table linen – in a light taupe, I then layered it with white & gold polka dot placemats and napkins, I chose coordinating colors for the dinnerware and flatware.  I added my vintage gold-rimmed teacups and blush glassware to complete the look. I ran two pieces of pink satin ribbon along the center of the table – this was to mimic a table runner so that I can use the center of the table to display my candy dishes and tea candle holders. To coordinate with that, I tied a piece of ribbon around each dinner napkin.

I love how it turned out…it’s such a sweet and festive way to celebrate the Easter holiday.

Cheers!

In the spirit of St. Patrick’s day, I made these festive mini milkshakes. Aren’t they adorable? I just love sweet, irresistible mini desserts – they’re perfect for any type of party.

For this milkshake, I used mint chocolate chip ice cream and topped it with whipped cream and the marshmallows from the Lucky Charms cereal. To serve mini milkshakes for the adults, add a splash of whipped vodka and you have the perfect milkshake shooter!

Cheers and Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!
