    Default So, would you add anything to my list?

    I've got my girls arvo this weekend, having some girlfriends over just for a chick's day - mani's/pedi's, junk food, maybe a chick flick. Here's what I was planning on serving:

    *Vodka infused chocolate strawberries
    *Fruit skewers - perhaps with a chocolate fountain as well
    *Dukkah and turkish bread
    *Cheese platter
    *Roasted almonds and cashews
    *Whipped cream, for the fruit
    *Sausage rolls
    *Punch
    *****tails and mocktails
    *Red/white wines
    *Soft drinks

    Is there anything else you think I should add? I'm organising it so we can 'reconnect', I've kinda pushed everyone away recently, so I want this to be a success

    Thanks for your help!

    Yummo!
    Maybe some dips to go with the bread? Or instead of whipped cream for the fruit have Toblerone dip (just melted tobes with cream soooo good) if you don't end up having a chocolate fountain.
    Sounds awesome. Have fun

    Yummo!!

    How about some olives and hommus plattered up with the dukkah?

    Chilled water? With some lemon and/or orange and/or lime wedges (coz I'm boring and I like water)

    I like dates on my cheese platters or grapes (but I'm probably alone in that)

    Thought I'd revive this thread coz I have a similar-but-not-quite-the-same-question, no need to start all over again, loving the suggestions in here!

    I'm having a Mad Hatters Tea Party - basically a high tea kinda thing, but I'm encouraging everyone to get dressed up and wear a funky hat or fascinator, mainly so I can buy another fascinator

    So, having it in my backyard coz its huge, hiring a couple of trestle tables and linen and chairs, trying to justify the expense of fabric and ribbon chair covers to DH for extra sophistimication. Was going to going to have lots of different teas for everyone to try, with one of those 'tea-for-one' sets for everyone and a big urn with boiling water. Apart from that, finger sandwiches, cupcakes, fresh fruit and cheese platters.

    Anything else - food or decoration wise - that you would suggest?

    PS - Kim, yep! Ohhh that dip sounds delish, PMing you now!

    I'm obsessed with Red Velvet cakes at the moment. So far my pleas to Yasin to have one for his birthday have fallen on deaf ears. You can live my dream for me - have Red Velvet cupcakes.

    Pimms fruit cup - get a big jug, add 1 part pimms to 3 parts lemonade. Chuck in mint and fruit (strawberries, orange slices etc). Drink up. Someone mention Pimms on FB and I've been craving ever since. You can live that dream for me too lol.

    LOL Onyx, any other dreams lurking there?

    What's a Red Velvet cake? Is it just the colour, or is there a flavour as well?

    How how little biscuits that say 'eat me' written in icing. To keep in with the theme.

    Could you get your hands on a croquet set?

    Love the Pimms idea....Jolly good show!

    It's kinda between a chocolate and vanilla flavour. You can use beetroot or red food colouring for the colour and it has a butter cream or cream cheese icing. There are oodles of recipes if you google it.
