I've put together a collection of what I consider some wonderfully unique ideas to experiment with for your next festivity. So go on, give 'different' a try and let me know how it goes.
Why I've never thought of this I have no idea, but I'm sure glad someone did! Take out your waffle iron and have some fun making gooey chocolate chip cookies.
Great for kids or adults and a very original way to serve a classic favorite, take tortillas, banana and peanut butter and jelly to make Banana PB&J Burritos.
While I generally prefer my wine glass right side up and full of fermented grape goodness, I have to admit I like this centerpiece idea. It's easy to do, pleasing to the eye and sure to be a great conversation starter.
Many of us have filled a watermelon full of vodka to obtain booze soaked fruit, but have any of us actually tapped it? Great party décor all on its own, this watermelon keg is the brain child of The Food Network magazine.
Who needs helium? Hang balloons upside down from the ceiling to create a festive, whimsical atmosphere.
A twisted take on an appetizing classic, these mozzarella egg rolls are sure to be a hit at any gathering. Serve with marinara dipping sauce and enjoy the taste of Little Italy's first meeting with the Forbidden City.
Just the photo alone makes me smile with delight. Wine ice cubes (yes, wine can freeze) are not only deliciously unique, they're incredibly practical. Pop a cube out and drop into fruit juice next time you want a quick sangria or keep cubes on hand for when a recipe calls for wine as a cooking ingredient.
I first saw this idea at a work potluck themed lunch. A colleague of mine brought "Fushi" as dessert and I couldn't get over the simplicity and utter fun of the dish. These photos come from the blog, Nothing But Country. Basically, you cut up a variety of Little Debbie® snack cakes and crispy treats to combine with candies, Fruit Roll-Ups®, Swedish fish and more to create Fushi, which is sure to get smiles and nibbles out of everyone.
