You're Invited To A Dinner Party

Let's get real my friends.  I haven't cooked anything in my life besides waffles in the toaster and frozen pizza in the oven.  There was that one time I tried to bake a boyfriend a birthday cake on a flat pan..... imagine my dismay when I opened the oven to a flat goob of cake! It was quite a travesty, but one my roommates and I laughed over for many months.  

So, why would yours truly ever feel she could be worthy of throwing a fabulous dinner/cocktail party (see said post)?  Because, as Roxy brilliantly states in her adorable blog, My Cup of Te

 "I believe, and let it be said with much conviction, that you should live sparkly! Vivaciously! Legendary! I truly believe that life is a celebration, that means everyday, and poppin' bottles is something I do with frightening regularity."

Don't you love it?  And isn't that what life is about?  Living adventurously and pursuing dreams you have for yourself, no matter how silly!?  Let it be said that I vow to "Live Sparkly", as Roxy encourages.  I am imagining vegetarian cuisine, fruity cocktail drinks, and endless bubbly.    Of course, the tabletop decor will include lots of beautiful candles.

It's not wedding decor- it's my cocktail party!!

The cocktail list will include...

Society Sparkler

½ large white peach (roughly chopped)
½ ounce freshly squeezed lemon juice
 1½ tablespoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom Champagne Edible gold glitter stars

 Cupcake Champagne Cocktail

½ ounce butterscotch schnapps
½ ounce Vanilla Simple Syrup (recipe below)
1 teaspoon maraschino cherry juice (from the jar)
3 maraschino cherries
Cupcake sprinkles

Bubblegum Martini

1/4 cup whipping cream
1/4 cup milk
2 ounces Bubble Gum Vodka
Gumballs for garnish
Crystal sprinkles for garnish

Okay, okay.  I know I said dinner party.... but dinner really isn't my forte.  Baby steps, my friends.  What do you think of the fabulous decor and cocktail list?
