“Your arms were
always open when I needed a hug. Your heart understood when I needed a friend.
Your gentle eyes were stern when I needed a lesson. Your strength and love has
guided me and gave me wings to fly.”
Love You Mom!
Mother’s Day is special and is a great way for the whole
family to unite and party to thank that one person who is there for everyone –
Mother! Thank You Mom in some special way by hosting a great get-together with
her friends and family. Make her feel special this day with the royal
treatment. I am planning a surprise Mother’s Day Barbecue for my Mom this year.
My mom just loves Barbeque cooking and summer time!
To start with the planning. I had to sneak in her office to
see her planner and see if she has some plans for that day! And I was glad to
know that she was Free for the day! And now I can easily start with my barbeque
planning for my mother.
The first thing to start with is deciding the venue, if you
want to surprise her than planning it at your place is not a good idea, mom’s
know each movement in the house even if they are secret, which can ruin your
Surprise plan. So I thought of having it in my neighbors’ backyard!
Before going in for the decorations, I decided up the
MOTHER'S DAY MENU:
·Apple Walnut Salad
·Slow-cooked Baby Back Ribs
APPLE WALNUT SALAD
apples, cored and sliced very thinly
Parmesan cheese shavings
1 to 2 bags
of prewashed mix baby greens
This salad gives an elegant touch to any meal, but it
couldn't be simpler to toss together! Simply pour greens into a large bowl and
top with the apple slices, walnuts and Parmesan shavings. Wait until just
before serving to mix in the desired amount of dressing.
SLOW-COOKED BABY BACK
dry rub of your choice
*Note: The number of racks you need depends on how many
guests you are planning on serving. Most guests will eat between three and four
ribs. (It's always better to have too much than not enough.)
Preheat oven to 250 degrees F. Line a baking sheet (you
might need more than one) with heavy-duty aluminum foil and place ribs on the
foil. Sprinkle dry rub on both sides of the ribs and pat the spices into the
meat. Put in oven and bake for about 2 hours and 15 minutes. A few minutes
before the time is up in the oven, light the grill. Take the ribs out of the oven,
slather with barbecue sauce, and finish them on the grill for 7 to 10 minutes.
Allow to cool before serving.
unsweetened baking chocolate
1 cup sugar
teaspoons pure vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Melt butter and baking
chocolate together, then stir in sugar, salt, eggs and vanilla. Blend flour
into the mixture until just blended (do not over-mix). Finally, fold chocolate
chips and pecans into the batter.
Pour batter into a lightly greased 8- by 8-inch baking pan
and bake for approximately 30 minutes or until a toothpick or knife comes out
Barbecue Party Decorations:
Keep the party decorations simple and sleek. First thing to do is to get your backyard mowed 3 days before your Barbecue Party. Choose those simple Barbecue Invitations available to invite your Guests and make sure you do that atleast 2 weeks before the party. Arrange some chairs and tables decorated with candles in those glass jars and some fresh flowers to make the yard look beautiful. Use disposable plates and cutlery so its easy to clean after the party and its comfortable for guests to carry the left over home.
Nothing flashy for the party keep it simple and let your Mom enjoy chit-chatting with her friends!
It’s time for some great Pirate Festivals in USA. Kids
usually are fascinated by Pirates and love to imitate them. I have many of my
friends who are reluctant to take their kids to Pirate Festivals thinking that
it might not be good for them. And due to this Kids miss out all the fun of
these Pirate Festivals. This year, I planned to host a Pirate Party for all the
kids in my neighborhood and kids of my family & friends in town. I have
always loved hosting parties and hosting a party for kids is always fun and
As, this will be a party for kids of different age groups, I
have to be sure that it caters to all the party needs! Having a pirate party is
not a difficult task, you get all the party decorations from online, and you
just have to pick the best ones for your party. And here are some of the best
ones I picked for my party.
The best way to tell your guests about the theme of Party is
by sending Invitation Card going with your Party theme. I found these Pirate Theme Invitation cards for my Kids Pirate Party giving me Pirate Feel for my
Kids love Piñata’s
filled with lot of Goodies and eagerly await when will someone break them and
they can have their candies. I found this cute little Pirate Piñata for my
Party. Which I will fill with candies for the little Pirates attending the
For a kid’s
party, balloons are important. No decoration is complete without Balloons. I
found these two Foil Balloons for my Kiddies Pirate Party. And I plan to buy
equal quantity of these Foil Balloons, so I can tie them in different corners
of my house to turn my house to a Pirate’s den.
I wanted to go simple with the tableware I wanted for my party. As I always suggest look for Party kits which go with your Party Theme. They reduce the hassle you have to go through finding cups & plates online or in stores! I found this amazing Pirate Party Kit Pack which includes: 8 invitations, dinner plates, dessert plates, cups, forks, spoons, 16 napkins, solid-color table cover, foil balloon, 12 balloons (2 colors), curling ribbon (2 colors), crepe paper rolls (2 colors), and cake candles. Standard Pack for 16 includes: 16 invitations, dinner plates, dessert plates, cups, forks, spoons, 32 napkins, solid-color table cover, foil balloon, 12 balloons (2 colors), curling ribbon (2 colors), crepe paper rolls (2 colors), and cake candles.
I was much tensed as what to include in my Party Favor boxes for kids. I tried many things but the party favor box was not coming out to be as I wanted it to be. So I found this Pirate Party Favor Box which is in the shape of a treasure box and includes a Pirates sticker sheet, a pirate wristband, eye patch, 2 tattoos, toy telescope, blowout, rubber ring and 30 golden coins. This box has everything I wanted in my party favor boxes.
Kids Parties can be very boring if you don’t have any playful activities for them. Here is a list of some great kid’s activities that you can conduct to for those little Pirates.
1. Tattoo Corner: Kids love getting tattoos painted on their cheeks & hands. I asked one of my friends who has decent drawing to help me in this. Paint their hands / cheeks with those pirate ships and skull skins.
2. Treasure Hunt: Pirate party without treasure hunt is no fun at all. I drew a map citing that there is a treasure hidden somewhere. We decided to divide the kids into 2 groups of pirates to make the competition healthy. Guide them as to what the maps means and let them find the clues themselves and see which team wins.
3. Captain Hook's Pretzels. This was a fun one! You have 30 seconds to hook as many pretzels as you can. This is good for a wide range of ages. The young ones (ages 3-4) do just as well as the older ones (ages 7-8). If you don't have a hook, you can use a black cup with a candy cane sticking out the bottom.
4. Swab the Decks Relay. Divide into two teams, each team has 5 ping pong balls that they need to sweep over to the other side and back. I spray painted one set of balls gold so they didn't get mixed up.
So, I am all set for my Pirate Party with those little Pirates!
As Easter is approaching
m totally nervous and excited of course. Wondering why nervous well as
few days back i was approached by an NGO for organizing a big Easter event. Its a big order for a small
company like mine. In my head all the plan is ready , but getting these ideas
to life is a task. After a lot of market searching and window shopping we finally managed to get exactly what i had in my mind.. Since its a large
scale event therefore the decoration also has to be grand.
The main highlight of this event is the egg hunting. Many
eggs need to be decorated for the hunt and to reduce the work and make it easy
i got many egg decoration kits( turns out to be very helpful).
A cute bunny for welcoming the guests and spreading the feel
of Easter. These are very convenient and look extremely attractive.
Having a large streamer hanging in the entrance just
completes the look of the decorations.
A simple, attractive
and yet not over the top decorations is what we plan to do and for that swirlhangings, bunny cutouts and Balloons have already been shopped and would be
scattered all over the place.
After all the fun activities , the NGO also plans to have a
lunch feast. For the lunch layout we have got many tableware and props
Every table placed in the garden would have a centerpiece.
The food would be lay out on a large table for which we got
this nice easter egg printed table cover.
When everything is
being done on such a grand scale then why to keep the tableware same boring and
plane. For the table ware these party pack are one of the best choice as you get
everything that you need and that to on a particular theme.
For a nice ending to
this event we thought of distributing some gifts not only to the winners of egg
hunt but also every kid that participated .
these Easter kits have been finalized for the winners of the
And as a nice token of participation easter eggs filled with
candies would be distributed.
I hope these Ideas would help you too this Easter.
Who said you have to be Irish to celebrate St. Patrick’s
Day. I remember going to Ireland with my parents as a Kid and seeing St.
Patrick’s Day Parade. The 5-day long extravaganza was a colorful event of
