It’s that time of year again. Time to break out those special-occasion serving platters, polish the silver, dig out the napkin rings, and dust off the party shoes. The holiday season – or, as I like to call it, the dance of the dinner parties – is so close I can already smell the roasting game hens.

Imagine this. You’re hosting the first dinner of the season tonight for a group of close friends. Guests are arriving soon.

But not to worry – you have the menu planned in advance and food ready to fly out of the kitchen. Luckily, everyone RSVP’d to your fabulous invites letting you know of any food requirements. Your friend Gerry’s new beau is allergic to peanuts, so stay away from the Skippy!

Celebrate special moments this spring with an enchanting garden themed tea party. Fragrant flowers, pretty pinks, vintage saucers, and scrumptious petite sweets will add extra charm to a lovely afternoon of tea and conversation. After tea, enjoy a stroll outside or through an indoor botanical garden if the weather isn’t in your favor. You will have your family and friends looking forward to all of your gatherings! Bridal showers, baby showers, and Mother’s Days are all perfect occasions for a charming and intimate afternoon tea. And since Mother’s Day is right around the corner (May 13th), it is time to plan some quality mother-daughter time. Show your appreciation for all of the moms in your life with a heartfelt gift as well! See my suggestions below.

St. Patrick’s Day Ideas

Posted on March 6th, 2012 by annalemberger

Since St. Patty’s Day is one of my favorite holidays, I felt compelled to write another post about this day of uninhibited Irish celebration. Plus, it just so happens that Knot the Groom’s weekly deal involves one of St. Patrick’s Day’s most cherished activities—drinking. Fortunately this year the holiday falls on a Saturday, so you’ll have a full day to recover after your night of debauchery. But, wait, whom am I kidding? I mean day of debauchery; because all good St. Patrick’s Days begin immediately upon rolling out of bed. Put your Irish hat on and follow my tips for a fun and lucky day!

Frankfurt Tallboy Beer Mug

 Deal Alert! This personalized beer mug is 30% off this week only! Add this beauty to your barware collection to ensure the drinks keep flowing this March. Use code FB030512 at checkout.

Saint Patrick’s Day Ideas

1. Drink the two Holy Trinities—Guinness, Harp, Smithwick’s and Jameson, Powers, Tullamore Dew. (Suggestion from our favorite guest blogger and drink master Jeff)

2. Buy chocolate gold coins and hide them everywhere.

3. Kiss a redhead.

4. Eat corned beef, cabbage and soda bread. Yum!

5. Carve and carry a wooden shillelagh (walking stick), and yell “Shillelagh Power” at every opportunity.

6. Wear an obscene amount of green. Think Wizard of Oz and Emerald City.

7. Wake up early on Sunday and watch your neighbors stumble home. If you’re the one doing the stumbling, wave.

8. Make your own Shamrock Shakes!

9. Most importantly, Irish responsibly.

Keep your drinks cold with these handy beverage coolers!
