Making this winter bright and tropical continues with these fun coffee or hot drink sleeves! I’m feeling all tropical and beachy while inside with the heat on. Fill these up with my colorful hot chocolate. Then you will have some bright drinks and cups. These could be really fun for coffee at a tropical brunch! Then top the drinks with whipped cream and colorful sprinkles. Plus the tropical vibes go great with colorful Christmas lights for easy decor in the winter. I just couldn’t wait until the heat to make some tropical fun. By the time summer comes around I will probably be making things in fall colors.

Continuing on with my brightening up winter week! Lets make winter bright with some diy tropical drink koozies. You can use these for year round but they are fun to use for winter to make sure your hands don’t freeze while enjoying a cool beverage. As a kid I loved all things tropical and beachy. I had a tropical themed Bat Mitzvah party. My parents were also known for doing luau styled parties. That is why I am loving all the tropical vibes parties. Flamingos and pineapples are some of my favorites. They are also right on trend. You can make these for everyday use, gifts and parties. Plus, these were super easy to make with the Spellbinders Platinum 6 and these tropical die collection. I’m going to decorate my desk all tropical with these dies. Flamingo pens are a must!
Sometimes in the winter things get too dark and dreary. I love color and that is why I am adding some color to my winter. This week is all about colorful winter fun!

Make them with kids over winter break or just brighten up any cold winter day with colorful hot chocolate! I will show you how to make colorful hot chocolate for some winter fun.
What you need to make it
I am so excited about Halloween! It is my favorite holiday because everyone gets to let out their inner child. Children get to have fun year round but Halloween is a chance for adults to also act like kids. There are plenty of kids crafts that I will be doing with my daughter. This diy is for the adults to dress up their drinks. These wine bottle ghosts are easy to make for Halloween parties. Also sometimes adults can use a little wine before trick or treating. They are a fun host gift to bring to parties, favors for adults. I love wine but you can make ghost beers, whiskeys, whatever you like.
Not much in life is better than strawberries and champagne. Something about the combination just feels classy. Since I don’t feel classy most of the time(more goofy) I will take it when I can. In the hot summer months sometimes you have to consume your drinks in popsicle form. These strawberries and champagne popsicles are the perfect adult popsicles for summer. Bridal showers, brunches, and classy summer parties need these! Really any occasion, just because if enough of a reason to make these yummy champagne pops. I already want to make more!
I love brunch and mimosas. I could really eat breakfast food at all times. We do breakfast for dinner sometimes because you can never have too much breakfast food. Also because I am not much of a chef and some breakfast foods are easy. Brunch is always a good option for having people over with kids, my late night days are over. Of course for brunch you have to have mimosas. I love mimosas! They are such a refreshing drink and the only acceptable way to drink before noon. In the summer in Arizona I have a problem keeping mimosas cold enough. You do not want a warm mimosa. That is where the mimosa popsicles comes in. They are even more refreshing than a regular mimosa. You can serve them at a pool party and everyone will love them! Obviously this is not a kids popsicle but you can have juice pops for kids too. Momma needs a popsicle every once in a while. I also need a little adult brunch time!
With Cinco De Mayo coming up I have had margaritas on the mind! It is also starting to heat up here in Arizona so all I want to do is consume frozen drinks. My coffee is about to get iced, iced tea, iced cocktails and just bathing in ice because it gets so ridiculously hot! We also are big into Cinco De Mayo here. I love a good margarita and I also love pineapples so I thought why not put them together. Honestly, I wasn’t sure if this combination would work out but this pineapple margarita is fantastic! Such a refreshing drink for summer and for a fiesta. Are you ready for a fiesta?! I think I need to have an online fiesta, wouldn’t that be fun! Pajama fiesta. That is mostly how I party these days anyways a marg in pjs while watching Scandal.
I’m definitely a fan of the ugly sweater craze and these ugly sweater koozies are perfect for an ugly sweater party. A lot of them I don’t even think are ugly just very festive and fun. About 5 years ago I could not find ugly sweaters anywhere for a party and had to make my own. I can’t sew at all so I think I glued some Christmas patches on a plain red sweater, gluing I can do. Now ugly sweaters are everywhere and a ton of people are having ugly sweater parties! I love that because adults need to dress silly and have fun more often. I made these little ugly sweater koozies with felt. Okay they are more just decorative sweaters but if you add some pants or felt around the bottom of the bottle they are koozies. Sometimes beer gets cold and needs a little sweater. You can also use the same template to make an ugly sweater garland using felt or Christmas color card stock paper!
Happy Friday! Since it is the weekend and I am on weekend time this post is a little late. It is also super duper easy because that’s what weekends are for! If you are entertaining and doing cocktails this is a fun DIY Washi Tape Serving Tray. I love washi tape because it can dress up a lot of things and you can make easy decorations with not a lot of skill needed. I used this dollar store plate I had and dressed it up for cocktails. Sprinkles are also always a nice touch too ;).

My brunch week on the blog is coming to an end :(. If you missed my other brunch posts you can see my bacon flowers here http://valeventgal.com/2015/08/bacon-flowers/ and bacon and eggs banner here http://valeventgal.com/2015/08/bacon-eggs-banner/. I just had to make some brunch printables to go with the brunch fun. I would not survive without coffee! I really do not know how some people just don’t drink coffee. That is why I needed the but first, coffee printable. I love a good coffee bar and I will give you a few ideas of what you need for the ultimate brunch coffee bar! I also am a fan of mimosas. I love mimosas because they always make brunch feel like a celebration! My mimosa me printable is perfect for a mimosa bar. In the morning there aren’t a lot of words in my vocabulary so mimosa me should get the job done! I really like any kind of bar taco bar, mimosa bar, coffee bar,waffle bar, ice cream bar and bar bar. Bars are the best for parties because you can set them up to look all pretty and people get to choose the way they like their food and drinks. It can be hard to cater to everyone’s taste when you are hosting a party. I say let them decide how they want things.
