In order for party planners to have enough energy to stay awake for the fireworks, the execution of creating great foods should be simple, visually appealing, and of course, crowd-pleasing.
Here are a few quick and easy energy-saving recipe ideas:
Love the Skewers:
This can be skewers of meat and veggies for the grill, appetizers of fruit and cheese, or anything else that can be jabbed with a stick.They can be laid upon a tray, poked into a cabbage head that has been leveled by slicing a piece off the bottom, Styrofoam, or in tumblers or glasses. For more info on skewer recipes see 50 skewer recipes by The FoodNetwork.
Twas the night after Halloween and all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse…Because we were all so tired from celebrating! Here was the yard this year and a highlight of costumes at the Halloween Bash.
Below are a few memorable costumes from our annual Morrow Halloween Bash. I’m sorry for so few. My photographer aka my husband was having such a great time he forgot his job for the night.
Planning and executing a party is stressful enough without attempting new recipes. So pull out your regular recipe cards and see what you can transform. You’ll be happier that you did and don’t forget to drop me a line with one of your ideas. Thanks!
Small pumpkin favors can work for weddings, kids parties, and other fall events. Photo courtesy of Debbie Morrow
Having a youngster means going to a plethora of birthday parties and getting those conventional favors most parents give out. You know the ones I’m talking about…the plastic kazoos, rings, bouncy balls, etc.
But there are only so many of those little trinkets a parent can take scattered in one household. So when my own child’s birthday party came around I wanted something different.
I thought, what would make me happy as a kid and a parent?
I bought these small pumpkins three for a dollar from a local farmer. I purchased the favor bags, ribbon, stickers, and markers at the dollar store.
Now not only did I have a favor that was appreciated by kids and parents alike, I had an activity of decorating pumpkins at the party.
I could see this working for other fall events or giveaways from businesses. Instead of stickers or markers within the bag, you could add business cards, a love poem with a bride and groom’s name for fall weddings, and more.
