Mark your calendars for Tuesday March 5, 2019

Happy Mardi Gras!!

You can't throw a Mardi Gras bash without food and especially a cocktail or two.  We have all the party drinks and snacks you will need to make your guests feel like they are celebrating Fat Tuesday the real New Orleans way.  To throw an authentic Mardi Gras party you have to include the traditional King's Cake with the plastic baby doll surprise inside, whoever ends up with the baby has to throw next year's party.   How cute would it be to bake individual cupcakes with decorative picks or plastic babies on top as a new spin on King's Cakes!

The food and drinks don't have to stop when the party is over.  Send your guests home with personalized candy bar wrappers, or to go hurricane glasses filled with beads, coins and candies.  How cute would it be to use colorful Mardi Gras Lollipops as a decoration for a dessert bar or as edible name place cards for your guest.  The possibilities for Mardi Gras food and drinks really are endless –  just be festive and have fun!

Pair Your Favorite Holiday Cookies with Wine

We are obsessed with this post on The California Wine Club's blog pairing wine with holiday cookies! From the opening line “Why should milk have all the fun?” to the fact that The California Wine Club actually has sound reasons for their suggested pairings, we were hooked. And then to reel us in, they created this great holiday cookie wine pairing chart. We are almost as impressed with this post as we are with their wine offerings.  How fun would it be to gift a plate of yummy homemade cookies with the perfectly paired wine or better yet, 3 months worth of wine (use code QUALITY10 thru the end 12.115.28 to get 10% OFF!)
