I found these cupcake toppers on a website, printed them on cardstock and taped them to toothpicks. Not only were they delicious, but my co-workers found the leftovers very humorous the next day. I found that chocolate was the key to bringing the different political parties together.
I believe that the one of the crockpots held barbeque chicken and the other meatballs. Add some chips and it is a party!
My son, an ardent Republican provided the poster of the president. He found it at Big Lots and it is still wearing it's price tag. I believe it was his olive branch. Or he was being funny. I am going with the olive branch.
I did find this recipe for the Ciroc Obama on the internet and it was the hit of the party. All my children are over 21 and we had Mr. Merry as our designated driver. Actually, we really aren't drinkers. Each lady had one drink and I still have the almost full bottles in my liquor cabinet. It did make us feel very decadent. Please notice the pink lemonade. That is what makes it a girl's drink.
We didn't actually watch the inauguration. If you remember back, it was an American Idol night. You can always watch news over and over and over on CNN and I was sure we would get all the highlights. But you can't visit over the watercooler if you aren't up on your Idol!
I will be linking on Tablescape Thursday with everyone's favorite, the hostess with the most - ess, Susan, at Between Naps on the Porch. Please visit everyone!
I also wanted to ask if anyone could explain Blog Frog to me? Is this something I signed up for? How does it work? I am clueless about this.
Thanks for visiting - I love seeing all the lovely tablescapes, china, dishes, crystal, flatware, flowers, linens and goodies you share each week! And I love your comments. See you later!
