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!
