Mother’s Day Lemon Lavender Spritz!

Mother’s Day is just a few weeks away, and what better way to celebrate with your mama than a delicious cocktail?!

When we heard about Belle Isle’s new Lemon Lavender Moonshine, we knew we wanted to incorporate it into a drink and with its beautiful lilac color, we knew it’d be perfect for Mother’s Day!

Enjoy this spritz on the front porch after Mother’s Day brunch; the lemon and lavender bring a bright citrus and herbal flavor, while the bubbles make it an ideal post-meal sipper.

To coordinate with the colors of the cocktail, we chose to set our Mother’s Day table with these items:

With an array of different colors and styles in our collections, you’re sure to find the perfect tableware and decor for your mom!

Taco Bout A Party!

Cinco de Mayo is a month away!?

Have no fear, the Jollity Girls are bringing you the perfect fiesta inspo, so you can throw the best taco party! We also created lime slice tequila Jell-O shots that will be an instant favorite. Check out the recipe below and fiesta like there’s no manaña!

We really wanted to make this table as bright and colorful as possible for this Cinco de Mayo celebration! So, to set this table we chose our Pink Dinner Plates, Pink Guest Napkins, and Chartreuse Guest Napkins from our Enchanté Collection and our Posh Buoy Bye Dessert Plates. We also wanted to add in a pop of gold and used our Posh Gold to Go Chargers. To finish the look off we used our Avocado Canapé Plates from our Fiesta Collection.

For decorating the table, we grabbed cactus and sombrero themed items, colorful fringe and honeycombs, and we added a fresh touch with a beautiful floral arrangement. Have some fun setting your own table and don’t be afraid to use things you already have at home. The more colorful, the better!

LIME SLICE TEQUILA JELL-O SHOTS

We love these Jell-O shots because they match so well with the table and decor, not to mention they’re delicious. At first glance they look like normal lime slices, but your guests will be delighted to realize that they are actually shooters!

YOU WILL NEED:

  • 6 Limes
  • 1 Box of Lime or Lemon Jell-O
  • 1 Cup Boiling Water
  • 1 Cup Tequila
  • Sea Salt (or sugar if you prefer sweetness!)
  • Muffin Tin

STEP 1:

Cut limes end to end and juice them. Then use a towel to pull the pulp out of the lime halves and discard the pulp.

STEP 2:

Mix Jell-O with 1 cup boiling water until dissolved, then add 1 cup tequila and mix well.

STEP 3:

Place lime halves in muffin tin for support, then carefully pour Jell-O into the halves. They should look like tiny little bowls.

STEP 4:

Refrigerate 2-4 hours until set, use a sharp knife to cut into slices, then sprinkle salt or sugar as the final touch.

STEP 5:

Enjoy!
