The Moscow Mule is Back Just in Time for Christmas!

The Moscow Mule is Back Just in Time for Christmas!

Yes, the Moscow Mule is back! And just in time for Christmas revelry. We love the idea of setting up a Christmas drink station  to spread holiday cheer. And letting our guest serve themselves would free up our designated bartenders so they too could enjoy the festivities. The hardest part about making the Moscow Mule is finding beautiful affordable mugs. So we were thrilled to be find these copper mugs. We love them all but are particularly enamored with the hammered copper mugs and think this Moscow Mule Gift Set would make a great stocking stuffer and holiday gift exchange present!

Lobster Bake Summer Soiree Planning, Ideas & Supplies

Lobster Bake Summer Soiree Planning, Ideas & Supplies

We fell in love with this great lobster party supply bundle that includes Oval Melamine Plates, (4) Butter Dipping Bowls and (1) Pack of 20 Napkins. Not surprisingly we now felt compelled to create an entire summer party around these festive products that could work perfectly for a Father's Day celebration, a 4th of July Party, or as an excuse to gather your friends and family together for no reason at all.

Most Importantly, The Lobster

Since it is summer, do not, we repeat do not fire up your stove and slave for hours trying to create the perfect 3-4 course lobster fest.  It is just too hot outside and truthfully, not worth your time and effort. Especially, since there is a terrific alternative that even if you slave for hours in the kitchen, will taste better than anything you can pull together yourself.  Instead simplify your life by ordering the lobster and all the fixings from Lobster Anywhere.  They will deliver everything from the lobsters and the lobster pot to the shell crackers, seafood forks, and lobster bibs.  Now add some chowder and crab cakes or sea scallops wrapped in bacon for appetizers and finish off with yummy key lime pie for dessert.  One stop shop with overnight delivery to ensure everything is as fresh as possible.

Budget Friendly Guest Bedroom Makeover

Budget Friendly Guest Bedroom Makeover

Summer is finally here and with it comes a barrage of house guests and constant entertaining. We love it but it does take a bit of effort, preparation, and a reasonable budget. In fact, we are always surprised at how much it actually costs to host friends and relatives. In addition to the basics, such as stocking the fridge with fresh vegetables and produce, most summers, just before our guests begin to arrive we inevitably seem to find ourselves in desperate need of fresh towels or sheets or even a shower curtain. And of course, we are always searching for that little something special that will freshen the guest room up and help transform it from fine to fabulous.
