This is a refreshing change from plain old water. Simply clean and cut a few strawberries lengthways and place in a jug of water. Eventually the water will develop a slight strawberry taste. This can be done with apples, lemons and various other fruits too.
Good presentation makes any food exciting to eat. For this simple idea, you need mini glass or ceramic vases and mini roses which you can get at almost any supermarket. Fill the vase with a delicious strawberry ice-cream and place a pink rose in each one.
Collect some used food tins, clean them out and paint the outside with a colour of your choice. Buy some small plants from the nursery and pot them in the tins and place name cards on each on. A fresh, simple and elegant name placement.
For this idea you need the right vase – a small rectangular, shallow vase. Place white pebbles on the botton and fill with enough water to cover the pebbles. Place long slender leaves in each vase (facing the same way) for a beautiful effect.
Instead of serving chips and dips, try something different and serve a fruit & nut platter. Make the platter look interesting by using different heights – you can put nuts in small bowls or cups & place the fruit around the bowls. You can even add a biltong stack to create even more variation.
This is a great idea for a tea party. You need teaspoons and at least three flavours of cooking chocolate. Melt the different flavours separately and dip the ends of the spoons into the chocolate, creating patterns with the different flavours.
This is a great accompaniment to the chocolate teaspoons. Serve cupcakes with pink butter icing and decorate with hearts made out of sugar icing. Cute and scrumptious – perfect for a ladies tea party.
Try and find these mini badges at a stationery store or Cardies. Select something different for each person, something that reflects their personality, and attach to a name card. These will also act as fun conversation pieces.
