Tropical Themed Dinner


A couple of weeks ago I hosted a tropical themed dinner and thought I'd share some of the decor and recipes over the next couple of posts or so.

I used bright gerbera daisies in a pineapple vase to create a centrepiece.


Be sure to fit a container in the pineapple so it doesn't leak(learned from personal experience).

Then I used some brightly coloured napkins that I folded into an orchid shape and adorned with a silk orchid.


I added mini tropical umbrella  and bamboo chargers on a green tablecloth lined with grass skirts.



Here's a look at the menu, I'll feature most of these recipes in subsequent posts.


But today I'll share a cheese ball formed in to the shape of a pineapple.


This can be done with any cheeseball recipe with the cheese shaped into a barrel. Pecan halves are pressed in and topped with the greens of a pineapple.

Recipes to come soon, thanks for stopping by!
