Adding a garnish to a cocktail doesn't need to be tiresome or tedious. Simply skewer a thin slice of lime and a small piece of grapefruit rind and place in a clear container or a shallow vase. Tip: Make these a day ahead and store in a sealed container in the refrigerator.
Grapefruit, Cereal and Pistachios ● Sausage and Pineapple Skewers ● Cottage Cheese With Cinnamon (Enjoy cottage cheese on its own or add in grapefruit, cereal, and pistachios.) ● Sugar Snap Peas ● Dark Chocolate Chips
Hang the garland in your favorite indoor space. Try adding it to the mantle, the Christmas tree or even hanging it around a window frame. The citrus slices are especially beautiful when lit from behind.
Designating a beverage station is a great way to keep the buffet table less crowded and carry the theme to other areas. To continue the party subtle menswear theme, search your favorite vintage store for a Mad Men-era decanter and vintage ice bucket. Be sure to stock the bar with plenty of cocktail napkins, ice and garnishes.
Since spring is associated with light, airy colors and being outside, it’s best to serve light fare at a springtime soiree. Serve up a spring-inspired salad made with greens and topped with slices of grapefruit, honeydew or cantaloupe. It’s best to always keep the salad dressing separate since guests may be particular about dietary restrictions.
