It Don't Mean A Thing...If You Ain't Got That Drink!

Have you ever noticed that Party/Event Planners seem to never put an emphasis on the drinks?  Think about it… how many times have you attended an affair and you walk into the venue and your mouth drops in awe of all the beauty and creativity.  You marvel at the table d├ęcor and extravagant centerpieces. The Dessert and Candy Buffet are color coordinated and well selected to compliment the theme of the function, and even the food choices on the menu have been handpicked to execute the vision of the special occasion.  You’re surrounded by glitz and glamour, then a Caterer walks up to you and asks, “Do you want Water or Ice tea?” in your conventional glass cup ... really! Today’s blog post is about incorporating cool, fun, innovative, and inexpensive drink ideas into your next event.

 Kool-Aid Ice Cubes

Go to your local grocery store and pick up some of your favorite flavor Kool-Aid packages, purchase different flavors for color dimension or choose one flavor/color if you are planning a color theme event.  Make the Kool-Aid just as you would if you were making it for your family. Instead of leaving it in a pitcher for serving; pour it in ice cube trays and freeze.  When the cubes are frozen place them in a transparent cup or Mason Jar and pour any clear beverage of your choice over the cubes (my family uses Sprite).  Not only will this make your drinks POP… but as the colorful Ice cubes melt watch how your drink change colors, and it taste great!

Super Mom or Super Crazy?

Hello all! Thank you for taking the time to read my first blog post (as a Contributor) with Eccentric Designs. In posts to come I plan to share with you a glimpse of my life – sharing with you my life experiences as a mother, significant other, and future Mompreneur (Mom + Entrepreneur). I will be sharing with you lessons learned, traveling and networking adventures, personal testimonies, and comical situations I may encounter in my day to day life.

Today I will be posting about my experiences as a mother -  trying to be a “Super Mom” who may have bitten off more than I can chew. Being a mother in this day and age with social media at our children’s fingertips (having easy access to any and everything) has made it difficult to keep up with the latest social media trends, lingo, fads, etc. I’ve found that something basic as navigating a website has become a job in itself (making me feel old!) Meanwhile my lovely, intelligent, social media savvy, YouTube tutorial addicted, DIY (do it yourself) tween has presented me with an idea for a Halloween costume (yes, she’s already planning her costume!) Now the irony is she’s never been big on dressing up for Halloween, or even remotely interested in partaking in any aspect of the Holiday other than the “candy eating portion”.
So, to my surprise she came to me months in advance inquiring if she could “dress up” this year.  Immediately (I went into mommy mode) and I knew there was a party somewhere in the midst of this - and I was correct! My tween’s BFF (best friend forever) had convinced her mother to have a dress up Halloween Party at their house with a bonfire and close friends. Unfortunately, as time progressed there was a change of plans causing the event to be cancelled. My daughter was absolutely crushed! Being the oh so awesome mom (I am),  without hesitation I volunteered to help her with the creation of her costume she found via YouTube – Creepy Doll Halloween Makeup – and  to host a Halloween dress-up Birthday Party (for her younger brother) at our home in which she can invite a few friends as well. I want to throw out a disclaimer in no way shape, or form am I creative with DIY projects, decorating, or managing a large group of children, however; without hesitation I can easily put my feelings to the side and do whatever it takes to create happy memories for my children.
