Hi guys,

by following my blog you might know that I have a thing for themed dinner parties or
tablescapes. You can see my latest here, here, here, here and here.

And if you
are new to my blog you are going to know now.

I always
loved Mexican food so I thought why not invite our friends and neighbours over
to a Mexican evening. I was planning on a three course meal with an aperitif
and it turned out really well. 

As a
starter I served homemade guacamole and salsa for dipping with nachos and a
margarita. 

The main
course where baked burritos which where delicious. A really easy recipe with
great taste. 

For desert I made a fruit salad in a watermelon (looked so cool) and Churros (I tried to make them before cause I was
really scared that they wouldn´t work out, maybe you saw them in one of my casaul Satruday posts already) and they turned out really good. Easier than I thought.

But let´s
have a look at the table decoration. I went for the full Mexican theme with
little sombreros, matching confetti and a piñata. The napkins are from Butlers and they are the cutest I could have found. Most of the decoration is from amazon cause they just have everything.



If you want to know a recipe just email me.


As always thanks for stopping by.


Take care. See you.

Casual Saturday #12….

Hi dolls and happy happy Saturday,

(post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links-not sponsored)

this was a rough week. In fact we only had one evening off but we made the most out of it. I am hosting a fun mexican eveinig tomorrow and I am really planing on building up a fun tablescape. 

We really didn´t do a lot of stuff which you would be interested.

I had line dance on Monady and Wednesday and my usual dancing lesson on Tuesday. And I started to go to the gym so I had a guiding in on Friday. 

Food:
 It was so hot this week so I only made cold and easy food.

I made this awesome cauliflower  pizza. 




 We also tried this inside out coffee I have found on Mara´s blog M loves M. It is a really cool idea to make ice cubes from your coffee and fill in the rest with cold milk. Such a cool idea for a hot day.




Shop:
This had been a week full of stress so there wasn´t to much going on in this category.

I have found this super cut crossbody bag from Mango with this round metal handle. It is called the Zina bag and available in black and this creme shade and it looks pretty familiar to a high-end designer bag.

 

I also got this clock for my office. I like the wooden / metal mix and I think this is going to look pretty good behind my desk.

The last thing I got was this hairspray for my mom. It is the Living Proof Control Hairspray and it should control your hair so it is not getting frizzy.

 TV:
The new Game of Thrones episode was live on Monday and of course we watched it and I must admit we forgot so much that was happening. Maybe there exists a summary somewhere so we can update a little. 
 I also watched The Bachelorette on Wednesday – in fact only the last 40 minutes – and I can´t believe that they are already going on the dream dates. It fells like it has just started. 


So that´s it for this week. I am now pre cooking and decorating for tonight. 


Hope you are all having a nice weekend. 


Thanks for stopping by. 


Take care. See you.

Hi guys, 
                  (post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links-not sponsored)
there aren´t more colorful months than the ones during summer time. The colors are all bright and vibrant and the patterns are so playful and vacation like. I love to redecorate my living room for the different seasons and summer might be one of my favorite (and of course fall and Christmas time – oh boy). I went with a vacation theme this time and it couldn´t have turned out prettier.
I especially love the flamingo and pineapple prints. They are everywhere to find and they are just the cutest. This remids me so much of Florida that I almost get home sick. 

My dining room corner:
 I got this super cool table cloth from Nanu Nana with flamingos and palm leaeves. I paired it with a matching decoration in the middle of the table. The cactus figures are also too cute. 
  
My couch area:
To make the couch area a little brighter spot I went with 2 colorful pillows and a matching blanket. The print reminds me of the colorful scenes of a Bollywood movie. For the table I went with color matching vases and of course one of my beloved scented candles from Yankee Candle.
 
My entry:
The first time I saw this pink flamingo I was head over heels and I totally had to get it. 
It makes me smile everytime I enter the house. Such a fun addition to an outside space.

Also it is never to late to get some summer vibes for on the go. What do you think of these super cute covers for your mobile from amazon? Also love this one. Pineapples and flamingos !! Do I need to say anything else ??
 
What are decoration ideas for your home?

A refreshing summer drink recipe and the cutest glassware from H&M….

Hi dolls,
(post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links-not sponsored)
with the beginn of summer we are craving light and refreshing drinks the minute the sun goes up. I have to admit I am not a big fan of mixing juices or cocktails. It is just too sweet and I don´t like it at all but I am a wine lover and I have found a great option.

A dry rosé wine, Schweppes Russian Wild Berry, raspberries and mint leaves – this makes the perfect symphony for your taste buds. You can mix it however it tastes best for you so now meassuring. I mixed two-thirds wine with one third Schweppes.

Speaking of perfect – how beautiful are these glasses and the carafe. The golden palm leaf print is so aborable and it is the perfect set for summer. This adds so much chic to dining outdoors and they are definitely a highlight in your glass cabinet.

I also got this metal tray for carrying all the glasses but it would also make a nice piece of decoration.

What are your favorite refreshments for Summer ?
