Happy Halloween

My Halloween party for the office!
Bloody Temple: Twist on a shirley temple.  We poured 8 glasses of sprite, placed a syringe full of grenadine in each cup and topped off with plastic eyeballs and spiders from Party City.
Lethal Injections: (aka jello shot syringes) Mix packet of jello with 1 cup boiling water, stir for about 2 minutes, add 1 cup cold vodka and stir, fill the syringes then chill in the fridge overnight.
Black Widow Shooters: We got test tube glasses and I painted the cardboard stand black.  The shot - 1 part vodka, 1 part cranberry juice, drop of black food coloring.

Pick your own glass favor!

I went to a wedding a few weeks ago and the favor was a pick your own glass.  The bride had found over a hundred vintage glasses and set them out by the entrance with a sign to pick your glass for the night.  Such a cute idea + I loved sipping out of my hobnail beauty all night.

Jello Shots!

I created a new jello shot flavor last night in my attempt to get brand compliant jello shots for an office party.  I've named it Cranlimeberry.  It came out closer to black than purple, but it was delish and a crowd fave. Keep reading for the recipe!

Happy Birthday to me (oh & Memorial Day)!

I love my themed parties, but to celebrate Memorial Day this year we made it all about my birthday.  So to kick off the last year of my twenties we found it only appropriate to start with homemade birthday cake shots!
