    While I love a gorgeous cheese board at any party, I am always on the hunt for new and fresh cheese appetizer for guests. So for today’s party recipe, I am sharing my apricot and goat cheese crostini which have become a summer staple at the MiaChateauFH! Salty meets sweet {thanks to the drizzle of agave!},they are the perfect change up to your usual selection of cheeses. My party tip: Warm up the baguette slices as close to party time as possible so they are crisp and toasty when guests arrive! I hope this inspires a delish new addition to your next summer soiree! Ingredients: 1 baguette Extra-virgin olive oil,…

    For my latest summer soiree, I had been searching for new and original ways to wow guests, so I partnered with Gilt City and La Marca Prosecco to create a totally cool {pun intended} take on a summer cocktail, a fruity Prosecco popsicle {to be consumed by guests over 21 of course!}. I wanted to keep things simple by sticking to 2 ingredients, La Marca Prosecco and fresh watermelon. To create the popsicle I started by blending half a bottle of La Marca Prosecco and half of a fresh watermelon till liquified. Next I took my popsicle molds and filled a third with the blended mixture…

    How to make a Naked Cake by Fashionable Hostess 12

    I have been eyeing the Naked Cake trend for some time now… they are so pretty and simple, but make a huge statement at any dessert table! So when my grandmother’s birthday came around last week, I took it as the perfect opportunity to hop on board the trend and test one out for myself. {For those of you wondering what a ‘naked cake’ is… it is the latest cake trend where you skip frosting the outside of the cake, but rather focus between layers, and then go over-the-top in decorating the top layer. The top layer can be fruit, flowers, icing,…

    Lately I have been trying to make more creative cocktail stations for my parties so when I hosted a Mom’s Night Out at my house last week I created this sweet Sangria Bar with a yummy selection of toppings for everyone to garnish their drinks. Key elements to this display are a fun drink dispenser {I got this one at West Elm. It’s holds 1.4 gallons, has a nice silver stand, and most importantly, doesn’t leak… many of the cheapie ones do!!}. Then I love my Simon Pearce martini glasses for displaying fruit with an elegant twist. Here I cut up oranges and…

    Fruit Salsa Recipe by Fashionable Hostess 12

    I have been on the hunt for some fun new ways to serve classic appetizers so when I was browsing my butlers pantry and came across these small appetizer cups, I thought a serving size portion of salsa with a few chips for dipping would be a great way to dress up a regular crowd pleaser. To make this app summer-friendly I decided to whip up a fruity salsa that I served alongside organic chips! Hope this easy summer app is a hit at your next party! Mango Salsa Recipe {as seen here}: Ingredients 3 large tomatoes, stemmed and diced small 1 medium red onion, diced…
