I love hosting parties. I really really do. I am a born feeder, always baking and sharing the results. So when it came down to finding a place to host a little sewist summer party, I volunteered. I had a blast making the decorations and baking a few bits.
Inspired by a few fabric garlands on Pinterest, I made my own. It used quite a bit of scraps and can easily be put away and used again for other parties. Highly recommended! It’s very shabby chic and brightens up a space quite well.
My me-made napkins finally got some use. I made these when I first started sewing so they have a special place in my heart. I kept them away in the linen closet and finally decided to bring them out. They are quite bright and cheery and dressed up the table nicely.
A party ain’t a party without some sweets…
Or savory bits…
So those are just a few snapshots of what I made. I also played bartender and made some cocktails, including a gin concoction that I need to replicate again so I can share the recipe. It’s much too good to keep to myself. Once I round up some gin I will try as many times possible until I get the cocktail right. It’s a sacrifice I am willing to make .
I am a true believer that sharing is caring. So for now I will leave you with the recipe for my go-to *honey margarita. Cheers!
Fill a 14 oz. shaker with the following ingredients:
2 oz. Hurradura Reposado
Splash of Cointreau
1 oz Honey
2 oz. Fresh squeezed lime juice
1 oz. Fresh squeezed orange juice

Cover, shake and pour over ice in a martini glass.
