Party Food Table Scapes

This last March my Friend Jalenne held a dual Birthday Party for a couple Friends.  She wanted a St. Patty's Theme.  With a couple simple tricks we jazzed up the hourdouve' table.

Remember tall center pieces for the table are fine if no one is going to sit at it.

Pick a theme and use all the same sort of serving pieces.  Example here we used crystal and clear glass serving pieces that goes with any theme.  We then covered her gold table cloth with a white piece if material found at any fabric store.

We added height by stacking cake plates and used tall serving pieces to balance it out.  Staggered the candle sticks and added some St. Patty's Day color.

Parties Made Easy!

Champagne, Did you know?

Did you know that wine bottled outside of the Champagne Appellation of France con not be called Champagne?  It's true, it has to be called Sparkling Wine.

Champagne (French: [ʃɑ̃.paɲ]English /ˌʃæmˈpn/) is a sparkling wine produced from grapes grown in the Champagne appellation of France following rules that demand secondary fermentation of the wine in the bottle to create carbonation [1]. Some use the term champagne as a generic term for sparkling wine,[2] but many countries, including the United States,[3] reserve the term exclusively for sparkling wines that come from Champagne and are produced under the rules of the Champagne appellation.[4].

Going to the movies

Thanks for the post, Bernard Vasquez

With two small children at home, my wife and I never get a chance to go to the movies anymore. Before we had kids we would go to the movies two or three times a month. I would say that I have been to the movies five times in the last five years. The problem is that it is so difficult to find people to watch our children. Plus going to the movies has become so expensive. Two tickets to the movies is the same price that it costs to rent ten movies from the local video store. I still love watching movies, but now we watch movies on television. We have satellite TV fromhttp://www.directstartv.com/ and have access to a number of movie channels every month. It is amazing how much our lives have changes since we had children. I would not trade my children for anything, and I love them both more than life itself. However, it is true that you sacrifice much when you take on the responsibly of parenthood. While it is exciting and rewarding, our ability to go out and catch a movie has changed significantly.
