So, I am a month late at posting this but who's counting right? This is my life right now, behind on EVERYTHING! Well, as you know my darling daughter Miss "I" turned 10 on March 15th. To celebrate the big event we decided a Hawaiian Luau was in order. Thing is, it was still winter. Knowing this we decided a Hawaiian Dinner Party was a better choice. The end result was one stinkin fun party! We had music, friends, great food, and even a fire! More about that in a bit.
Lovely tissue balls. Looked so nice hanging over the table. FYI-Do not attach tissue balls to ceiling using only tape, especially when hanging over candles! Yes, this is the part where the fire comes in.... see that pretty blue ball? It fell directly onto the candle and burst into flames right on the table. My friend and I were busy cooking with our backs turned when I mentioned "It was feeling hot in here". Low and behold there was a fire on the table! AHHHH!!!! Without even thinking I grabbed what little bit of the tissue wasn't burning and tossed it down to the tile. Probably not the smartest decision, but I WAS HOLDING A FIRE BALL!!! We quickly threw a pan of water on the mess and it was out. Amazingly, the table remained clean and un-burnt. How so, I have no clue!

Virgin Pina Coladas
Okay, she is going to hate me for putting this picture on my blog, but it is the only picture of the food I took. Sorry, my dear!
Yes, I served the Pina Coladas in Margarita glasses. Not authentic, but it worked and they were nice because they were frozen and kept the drinks nice and cool.
Thanks for the yummy dinner, Mom!
