National Martini Day! Cheers!

In honor of National Martini Day I have cooked up something extra special and serving up some fun wearing my fun, new apron that I created for the dish that doesn’t cook, but still likes the dressing! 😉 You can get your very own by clicking the apron link below. I hope you enjoy the video ~ and the apron! ~ Cheers! Sunny xo

P.S. I have lots of other fun products available featuring the same design so make sure to browse around while you’re shopping at my Zazzle boutique:) Thank you so much, Sunny!

This post is for my fellow tea party lovers out there. As I have mentioned before, I love the whole idea of Afternoon Tea. And, if I can combine it with a visit with a girlfriend then it’s made even more special. I recently got to do just that when I threw an Un-Birthday Tea Party for my girlfriend, Vicki. We have been friends since we were two years old and went to nursery school together all the way through high school graduation! So, can you imagine my disbelief when I realized that I mistakenly wished her a happy birthday ten days after her b’day?! I got the wrong day! This called for a very special make-it-up-to-her party! So, I threw her an Un-Birthday Tea Party

I enjoy any reason to entertain (on and off the stage!) so I had great fun planning all the details of this very special occasion for my very special friend. I hope you enjoy this little gallery of photos I took to document the festivities. And, maybe it will inspire you to celebrate one of your special girlfriends with a beautiful tea party. Just don’t wait until you miss her birthday!!

*This lovely Tea Party would also be a perfect way to celebrate Mom on Mother’s Day!

My B-Metro Column: Sunny’s Entertaining ~ Xmas in July, Baby, it’s Hot Inside!

 

SB xmas

Well, it happened again. For some reason I thought that maybe, just maybe, baking the Southern Living magazine Christmas cake in July would not be as frantic as it is when trying to make it in December. And once again, I was wrong. But, when your nieces ask if you can have a Christmas in July cake baking party you don’t stop to think about the details, you just say it’s a plan! And, so now, I just make myself crazy twice a year. Because, let’s face it, with or without the SLCC, December is the craziest time of the year. And now, July is, too! The best way I thought to sum it up for you was in this little poem. So, here’s the latest scoop on our Second Annual Christmas in July Southern Living magazine cake baking party (sung roughly to the tune of “Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow.”)

Oh the weather outside is frightful

But the air inside is so delightful

Now that it’s five below

Let it blow, let it blow, let it blow.

This heat doesn’t show signs of breaking

And I’ve got a cake that’s baking

So I’ve turned the air down real low

Let it blow, let it blow, let it blow.

I don’t know what I was thinking

I guess I must have been drinking

I should have just said “No”

Let it blow, let it blow, let it blow

It sounded like fun at the time

To celebrate Christmas in July

So when your nieces ask you to make

A Southern Living Christmas Cake…

Just say no. Just say no. Just say no.

Just because it’s summer

Doesn’t mean it will be “funner”

Your nerves will still be shot

And the kitchen too damn hot

Just say no. Just say no. Just say no.

The whole of summer break

Is not long enough to make this cake

Too soon they will go back to school

I hope by then that it will be cool.

We won’t have time to make the garnish

On all 27 steps we moved too slow

But it should still taste delish

Just say no. Just say no. Just say no.

I think I’ve learned my lesson

That we should have started sooner

And so next time I will remember

Unless we start it in December

I. will. Just. Say. “No”.

Oh, boy—I sure hope so, I hope so,

I hope so!

Until next time…Cheers! ~ Sunny
