Why to choose an outdoor wedding?

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

There are plenty of things to consider when planning your wedding. From the dress to the flowers and the food.

One important detail is the venue but before you can start looking for it you need to decide if you would like to get married inside or outside.

Many people think outside weddings may be a little optimistic because of the one detail we can’t control, the weather. But there are so many other reason for choosing an outside celebration that will definitely get your attention:

  • The setting: an outdoor wedding option guarantee a spectacular background setting for your pictures. Can you imagine saying your vows overlooking a river, garden or meadow?
  • The sounds and smell: you’ll hear birds, wildlife and perhaps flowing water depending on where your venue is. Also, if you’re enjoying a spring or summer wedding the smell of freshly cut grass, blossoming flowers and leafy tree’s will create an aroma you cannot match indoors.
  • The space: you’ll probably still have your limits on guest numbers but the space they can enjoy being outside can’t be matched in an indoor venue.

Maybe It might rain. But let’s face it, no wedding venue is going to let that ruin your day, there will always be a plan B ready just in case!

Mexico is just around the corner, specially for the citizens that habitate the southern region of the United States of America. That’s why its culture has spread in states like Texas and California. But we are not here to talk about geography… we are here to talk about what’s needed to throw an unforgettable MEXICAN FIESTA, one those that going to be commented for day or weeks.

FOOD: The core of mexican culture its the food. Mexican plates are famous all around the world and that’s why there are so many fast-food chains that dedicate their menu for this type of gastronomy. Well, considering this fact, the food must be vital in your Mexican Fiesta. Appetizers like nachos with cheese, chili and guacamule are a must, but don’t leave it there. Add mini tacos (meat, pork or chicken), spicy shrimps, quesadillas, melted cheese with “chorizo” and jalapeños. In case you want to offer lunch or dinner, burritos will be just fine.

DRINKS: Without tequila, there’s no Mexican Fiesta. So offer tequila shots with lemon and salt, and the famous Tequila + Sprite drink. Magaritas (including the spicy one) and Tequila Punch are also classics among mexican drinks. DECOR: Big mexican hats and serapes all over the place! That’s a good thing to start. Remember to decorate with a large palette of colors, because the mexican culture is a happy and colorfull one.

James Bond and his cocktails

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

1953. The British journalist and novelist Ian Fleming brings to life a character… but not any character. It would turn to be the most famous spy in history. That’s James Bond, “AKA” 007. We are sure an important amount of persons in the planet have heard of him. And the ones who hasn’t, are going to in a certain period of their lifes.

Bond, a fictional agent from the Secret Service of Great Britain (MI6), is known as an exceptional spy, but there are other characteristics that made him popular. One of them is his sense of style: suit and tie, or tux. The other one is his ability to enchant women. And the last one, his taste in liquors… and that’s the main theme for today’s blog.

007’s life is not easy. So he usually drains with a couple of cocktails. The main one is the well known vesper. But there are other drinks mentioned on Bond’s novels and films.

THE VESPER: It’s just better to name this piece as “The Bond Martini”. The agent himself gives the recipe in one of the novels by saying: “Three measures of Gordon’s, one of vodka, and half a measure of Kina Lillet. Shake it very well until it’s ice-cold, then add a large slice of lemon-peel”. Clear? Oh! Wait! If you’re asking yourself why it’s called “The Vesper”, the answer is easy: one of Bond’s lovers, Verper Lynd.

SCOTCH AND SODA: Simple, but very British. Bond usually drank this popular mix during the novels. Nevertheless, the movies (25 in total) just show -mainly- his passion for “The Vesper”.

OTHERS: Mojito and Vodka Martini have appearances on Bond’s life, but in a less important role.

So… are you adding “The Vesper” to your next event? Let us know!

 

Sweet Sixteen: Beauty and The Beast

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

“Tale as old as time, song as old as rhyme… Beauty and The Beast”.

Remember those lyrics? We are sure most of our readers do. They are from the main song of the original motion picture soundtrack of the Disney hit, Beauty and The Beast. It’s a well known animated film, based on a tale, that achieved fame during 1991. Nevertheless, right now the phenomenon has risen again with a live-action adaptation of the movie, starring Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, Luke Evans, Stanley Tucci, and Ewan McGregor, among other stars. That’s the reason we are here… BEAUTY AND THE BEAST IS TRENDY AGAIN!

If you just saw the film and you’re turning 16, we have a couple of ideas for your theme Sweet Sixteen party.

  1. Single rose centerpiece: Every table should have a single red rose in the middle, covered by a curved glass. Why? Because that’s one of the most important symbols of the movie, taking in consideration it contains the life of the Beast. So, the single rose centerpiece is a lovely idea that will do a huge wink to the theme of your Sweet Sixteen.
  2. Go yellow: Belle’s most outstanding outfit during the film is the one used when she dances with the Beast. She was wearing a beautiful yellow gown. Make sure to go to a seamstress to ask for a similar dress.
  3. Main dance: Go big or go home! If you’re doing this party, do the vals with the original song as music. Dance with your dad, grandfather, best friend, boyfriend, or whomever you like, but don’t forget to order this tune for the moment.
  4. References: On the dessert table or the cake, use references of important characters of the film, like Lumiere, Mrs. Potts, Chip or Cogsworth. You can include them in your cupcake décor or with pastillage figures.
  5. Presents: As farewell gift, we suggest you give red roses. That will put the cherry on top of the pie.
