With just over a week until Halloween, we are really starting to get into the holiday spirit here at BB HQ! Earlier this week we showed you how to make our marbled skull chocolates and next up is this funky green cocktail. It’s really simple to make and you only need a few ingredients, so get ready to have a spookily good Halloween.
YOU WILL NEED:
White rum | Pineapple juice | Soda Water | Blue Curacao | Sugar | Apple Sours | Lemon |
Cut your lemon in half and rub around the edge of your glass, then dip the rim in sugar and leave to dry.
Next mix 1 part rum with 1 part pineapple juice and 1 part soda water.
Slowly add a dash of blue Curacao to the mixture. By adding it slowly and at the edge of the glass, the Curacao will sink to the bottom and create an ombre effect.
Although I’ve promised myself a break from wedding planning for a little while, I can’t help but find myself perusing Pinterest for ideas here and there. Both myself and Mr T are outdoorsy type people, we love nature and in the summer try to spend as much time in our garden as possible, which is why for Valentines day this year Mr T took me to a garden center for the day! You might think that sounds kinda boring but we loved it and it’s why I fell in love with the idea of getting married in a greenhouse, surrounded by plants and foliage. Since then, I’ve been looking around for some inspiration and I needed somewhere to list all my favorites and where better to share it, than here with you guys.
Tropical Garden Party: I have been so obsessed with everything tropical this year which is probably why I love everything about this fruity greenhouse party. Paired with this pretty location in Houston it’s not surprising that this it is up there as my dream wedding location and setup! If anyone knows of anywhere like this, here in the UK, hit me up!
Greenhouse Wedding with Tons of Color: With summer all but a distant memory there’s no better way to clear those winter blues than with a wedding day bursting with color. This greenhouse wedding inspiration was shot in the Netherlands and features blooming florals and a soft shimmering light that will take you back to those days of summer.
Modern + Colorful Glasshouse Inspiration: OK so it’s not strictly a greenhouse but it could be and as we like to bend the rules around here, and because it’s so damn colorful, I couldn’t resist sharing it with you!
Modern Chic San Francisco Wedding: As you can see from these images, the Conservatory of flowers is a captivating venue! This blank canvas provides the perfect backdrop for creative couples and really is one of San Francisco’s most iconic gems.
Botanical Wedding in Barcelona: This beautiful wedding in Barcelona is overflowing with lush greenery, ivy covered walls, floors surrounded in succulents and ceilings strung with fairy lights, could this place be anymore magical!
London Greenhouse & Pub Wedding: Clifton Nurseries is up there on my list of places I would love to get married, surrounded by plants and foliage, it’s not surprising that this intimate London venue is a popular one with couples looking for something a bit more unique.
Romantic Philadelphia Horticulture Wedding: Greenhouse weddings aren’t just for summer as this vibrant winter wedding proves. With deep jewel tones, geometric shapes and brightly colored floral displays this Philadelphia venue is dressed perfectly for the season.
You guys, I still don’t think I’m fully prepared for the fact that Halloween is pretty much a week and a half away! I mean honestly, where has the time gone?! I’m still planning my costume for this year and am thinking of going as some sort of evil mermaid! What are you planning on dressing as this year? Are you throwing or attending any sort of Halloween shindig?? Today we thought it would be fun to share a chocolate favour tutorial! These could be given as gifts at your wedding or just served on the dessert table for a spooky twist! They’re also SO EASY to make! Here’s how…
YOU WILL NEED:
White Chocolate // Dark Chocolate // Skull Moulds (ours were from Denny Craft Moulds) // Black Food Colouring // 2 Jugs //
Melt your white chocolate in one bowl and your dark chocolate in another bowl over pan of boiling water or in the microwave.
Next, add your black food colouring to the dark chocolate just to create a darker shade. Watch the consistency carefully here because the more we added the more stiffer and harder to work with the chocolate became.
Ok, hands up…who else is obsessed with snapchat filters?! We both absolutely LOVE them and couldn’t help but think that they would make an awesome addition to a photo booth!! The best part is we designed a bunch of them and you can grab them for free right here!
All you need to do is print off the templates below onto white card, cut them out then adhere them to a bunch of BBQ skewers! Easy peasy and you can guarantee your guests will LOVE using them in the Photo Booth!!
Actually, let’s just talk about the filters for a second, which one is your favourite?! We’ve gone for the most popular ones here but our faves have to be the rainbow out of the mouth and the the puppies! Speaking of which, Mushu obviously couldn’t help but get involved in this shoot! He always wants to steal the spotlight!
