Hooray, Renee! We are all so proud of you! But this isn’t a post about how awesome you are and how wonderful your graduation was. This is a post just to show my crafty attempts at making an appetizer and centerpiece… since I like to keep track of my craft endeavors on my site. I’m not trying to brag, I swear!
I found a wonderful recipe in a kid’s cooking magazine. It’s a pool ball setup (cheeseballs) with cues (breadsticks). It turned out very well. The numbers got smudged after covering it in the fridge, but you could still tell what it was. Each cheeseball has a different topping. There were red onions, white onions, green onions, cheddar cheese, swiss cheese dyed blue, black olives, green peppers, yellow peppers, and beef jerky.
Next I made a couple of centerpieces, which turned out to be more difficult than I had anticipated. First of all, lemons float. And getting them to stay put required a bit of patience and luck. One turned out very well.
I’ve learned over the past several years of throwing parties with AL, mainly Halloween parties, that the more patience you have and the more time you spend on party details, the better they turn out… and the more like the picture. So I try not to rush through these things anymore. The cheeseballs took over 2 meticulous hours. But it was fun.
Congratulations again, Renee! We love you!
