Whimsical Cocktail Party
Paint a picture-worthy tabletop by creating this fun and playful grouping of floral cocktails perfect for your next summertime party!
Materials used: 4 Highball Glasses, Oasis Midnight foam, various colorful ribbons, Uglu dashes, paper straws, bamboo skewers, midollino, ‘Princess Aiko’ garden roses and ‘Princess Midori’ garden spray roses (Alexandra Farms), craspedia and coral hypericum
Step 1: Carve cylindrical pieces of Midnight foam to fit inside highball glasses using rim of glass as template for size. Roll round surface on tabletop to create smooth shape. Set into glasses. Repeat with a second layer to fill glasses
Step 2: Attach ribbons around each glass in layers using Uglu to secure. Vary the position of ribbons on each glass for a whimsical touch.
Step 3: Add paper straws using a skewer inserted into foam and set the straws onto them. Soak midollino in water for a minute and knot onto itself to create fun swizzle sticks. Add them to each “cocktail”.
Step 4: Insert ‘Princess Aiko’ garden roses and ‘Princess Midori’ garden spray roses (Alexandra Farms) into each glass.
Step 5: Finish the design by adding craspedia and coral hypericum to each glass. Set atop a cocktail tray and some tropical leaves to finish the fun and playful cocktail party vignette.
