Good food, an apron and a potholder…what do they have in common ? A great party !

Yes, barbecue season is right around the corner, Mothers Day, Memorial Day, Fathers Day, Graduation… they are all coming very soon, along with warm weather and pool parties. So we are here to help you get ready!

I have been on the hunt for some “Different & Delicious” food prep alternatives, “Fun & Festive” outdoor party ideas and “Quick & Easy” projects to make your festivities a hit. Here’s what I have uncovered.

First, Different & Delicious.  Dinner Studio is incredible an incredible dinner delivery service in San Diego and our family doesn’t know how we lived without them for so long.  Delicious, personalized, home-cooked dinners, what more could one ask for?  Once you sign up and start looking around on their site, it won’t be what should we order, it will be how many should we order! And they make it easy with all sorts of incentives and a start up discount.  I know…give, give, give, it’s just eatable  incredible !

Second, Fun & Festive.  Keep it simple, is one of my best tips. Hang some colorful paper lanterns in your trees or umbrella and clip on some cute butterflies and dragonflies. (Check your craft store for these)  Take mason ball jars,  in half of them put candles inside, the other half place a bunch of colorful flowers inside. Place  wood or cork rounds (from craft store) down the center of your table and place the jars on top of each one.  Get big plastic or galvanized tubs (there are some great deals out there) and surround your wine, beer, soda, lemonade…drink of your choice, in festive colored ice cubes. Here’s how you do it: Place a few drops of food coloring into the water before pouring it into the ice trays and stir. Make all different colors of ice or colors that go with your party decorations. You can even get different shaped ice cube trays for more fun.

Third, Quick & Easy project. An ice breaker, if I ever did see one!  A festive barbecue apron and pot holder might just be the thing that tops off the night and has everyone talking and wanting to know where you got such a great apron and pot holder.  When you tell them, ” I made them” their next question will be, mark my words, where did you get such  different and original fabric?  The fabric can take a nice apron to a Wow apron.  Click on our apron and potholder DIY instructions to learn how to make them yourself.  We’ve also listed a great location to find fabric for all your DIY fabric needs!

My girlfriends and I got together for a cookie party and I made them all aprons from this wonderful fabric shop. I went with a retro look and had no trouble finding what I wanted.
