Spring Brunch 6 1 682x1024 Spring Brunch Party with Chinet® Cut Crystal® Tableware & Giveaway When it comes to hosting parties, my motto is to make it as easy on yourself as possible yet still create a gorgeous setting and serve beautiful food that will have people swooning! The easiest thing to save yourself work on is to use plastic serveware. That’s where the Chinet® brand comes in.
The Chinet® Cut Crystal® line of products is gorgeous and perfect for any occasion. It’s convenient and stylish. Birthday party, holiday dinner or a romantic dinner for two – you can create a perfect place settings with Chinet® disposable tableware. But I went a little bit further than just stacking them on a side of the table.
 I used Chinet® Cut Crystal® plates, cups, and cutlery to create treat stands, mini vases and the overall theme for the Spring Brunch Party. I took each product used for serving the food and created simple decor items!
Theme: Spring Brunch
Theme Colors: pink and yellow
What I used: Chinet® Cut Crystal® Plastic Plates – dinner plates and dessert plates, Chinet® Cut Crystal® Cutlery, Chinet® Cut Crystal® Plastic Cups, Chinet® Cut Crystal® Stemless Wine Glasses, fake flowers, washi tape, napkins, theme items, like plastic eggs
What I served: strawberry cake rolls, sliced red pepper Ranch tortilla roll-ups fruit salad with lemon whipped cream, sparkling water with sliced strawberries Chinet Cut Crystal Products11 682x1024 Spring Brunch Party with Chinet® Cut Crystal® Tableware & Giveaway The Chinet® Cut Crystal® Stemless Wine Glasses are perfect for mini vases! I used a light pink polka dot washi tape to decorate the cup, filled it with a couple of plastic eggs and fake spring flowers that were cut down to size. Few of these arrangements can add freshness and color to the party table! So beautiful! Spring Brunch 2 1 682x1024 Spring Brunch Party with Chinet® Cut Crystal® Tableware & Giveaway I love washi tape! It lets you add color and make things flow in one theme. Wrap a small piece of the tape on the plastic cutlery to match it your table setting. So easy and so pretty! Spring Brunch Party 2 682x1024 Spring Brunch Party with Chinet® Cut Crystal® Tableware & Giveaway The stemless wine glasses are so trendy right now. I am so glad to find the Chinet® brand offering them in the gorgeous Cut Crystal® line. They are perfect for Cabernet, a little Zin or simply sparkling water with sliced strawberries and lemons. Spring Brunch 3 1 682x1024 Spring Brunch Party with Chinet® Cut Crystal® Tableware & Giveaway One of my favorite hacks that I created for this party is the treat stands. No need for porcelain or wood cake stands! You can easily make one with Chinet® Cut Crystal® products! Spring Brunch 4 1 682x1024 Spring Brunch Party with Chinet® Cut Crystal® Tableware & Giveaway I took two Chinet® Cut Crystal® plastic cups, filled them with plastic eggs (or whatever items fit your theme), secured the eggs with a piece of tape, inverted and placed a large plate on top (a piece of tape will be helpful to stick it to the bottom of the inverted cup). The rim of the Chinet® Cut Crystal® plates is so beautiful that it’s perfect for this project. I served sliced strawberry cake rolls and red pepper cream tortilla roll-ups on the stands but you can serve cupcakes, mini cakes or other adorable treats. If they are heavier, use two plates for the stand. Spring Brunch Party 1 682x1024 Spring Brunch Party with Chinet® Cut Crystal® Tableware & Giveaway The plastic cups are perfect for individual servings of desserts, dips or salads! Since my girls always request a fruit salad for parties, they were happy to see it served in these beautiful cups. A dollop of lemon whipped cream is a perfect finishing touch!

Slow Cooker Pineapple Salsa Chicken

 Slow Cooker Pineapple Salsa Chicken – a five ingredient slow cooker dish that’s gluten-free and kid-approved! 

Pineapple Salsa Chicken 682x1024 Slow Cooker Pineapple Salsa Chicken

I have a very busy week ahead. Actually, it won’t end until next Tuesday so it’s even more than a week. I have a to-do list so long, it would make your head spin. One thing that I don’t want to stress me out – is dinner time. It’s tricky enough to make a kid-friendly meal that’s also gluten-free (oh boy! do I have a story about that! Soon! I promise!) and still satisfying.

Slow cooker to the rescue.

I love when I can throw five ingredients into a slow cooker, let it cook away and know that I will have a fantastic dinner on the table with no stress and minimal prep. Win win!

Most likely, they are already the basic ingredient in your smoothies. Same for bananas. But beets? Not so much.

MY STORY

So here it goes. Let me tell you why I love this smoothie so much, that I decided to share it here with you. When I was 10 or 11 years old, Continue reading
