I am constantly having conversations with my clients about gifts for guests. I personally am of the mind that the entire wedding it self is a pretty great gift to your guests, but I totally understand if you want to do something more. I have had clients who have given bags of seeds, picture frames, wine glasses, you name it, and unfortunately most of these items tend to get left behind, and the bride is left with a million little pictures frames. However there is one item that NEVER gets left behind: BOOZE! Yep, send your guests home with a drink and they are always happy campers. Just check out a few of these ideas…
I have to say I am really lucky to have a husband who is a chef. So when I show him a picture on pinterest of a meal I want, he can totally copy it. So between his cooking skills and my party skills, we can throw a pretty great back yard BBQ. Now if we only had the time to do that, it would be a totally different story! If I was going to have a BBQ this weekend, it would look a bit like this:

As summer approaches, and back yard BBQs are about to begin, now is the time to think about drinks. Of course the usual beer, wine and non alcoholic drinks are fine, but my not take it up a notch. Here are just a few I want to try this summer.
I have had such a crazy sweet tooth going on lately, and all I have been craving are beautiful desserts with summer fruits. Weird I know, but when you see these pictures, you will totally have the same cravings!
As the long winter drags on and it starts snowing outside again, I have come across a great dinner party from Waiting on Martha. How much fun would it be to go out into a cabin in the woods and have a delicious gourmet dinner? Sounds like a great plan to me!
Tonight I am having dinner with some of my very favorite girlfriends, and dinner with them is absolutely the highlight of my day. Now if I had the time and the perfect location, this post from Green Wedding Shoes, would be exactly what I would love to do.
