A Margaritaville Party


Hello friends, it's time for another tablescape blog hop. Since summer is almost here, we are embracing it with some tablescape fun.  Many thanks to Rita from Panoply for keeping us organized.  There are a total of 19 table stylists for your viewing pleasure. You can find the links at the bottom of this post.

I set a fun table down under our palapa with a Margaritaville party for my lady friends.
Flip flops, margaritas and tropical yummy food was enjoyed by all.  I love hosting down by the pool, since we have a pool cabana with everything I need. From two refrigerators, an ice maker, Margaritaville  blender, dishwasher, snow cone machine and a grill with a side burner.

I set the table with palm leaf placemats followed by hot pink flower-shaped chargers and then topped with my tropical plates which feature tropical birds.

Pink goblets and flamingo napkins with parrot napkin rings set the mood for a tropical theme.
 I also added these cute palm tree drink floats for a fun look. The parrot stickers were added to water bottles for a custom look.
Margaritaville is all about the fruit, margaritas, tropical food and parrots. Don't forget the flip flops and shaker of salt.
For the centerpiece I added this tropical floral arrangement with orchids, red anthuriums and bromeliad.
The palapa makes for a nice shady place to enjoy an alfresco meal, complete with a palm leaf ceiling fan.

The outdoor kitchen is wonderful for grilling and visiting. Paul grilled a copycat recipe of Red Robin's Teriyaki Chicken and Pineapple Burger. I also served Coconut Shrimp with strawberry margaritas.

Most of the ladies brought salads including Potato salad, Tortellini salad, fruit, and a chopped salad.
 Jain  brought some lovely roses from her garden. 
 She also brought some delicious crab cakes with a mango salsa. She gifted me this darling fish basket.
Catherine brought mango cheesecake and Pina Colada cheesecake mousse. 
also made Coconut Yum Yum for the ladies to take home plus flip flop cookies. The cookies are Nutter Butter cookies submerged with candy melts. I used a flip flop plastic cookie-candy mold from Amazon.

More ladies are on their way.

For party favors, each guest received a tropical tote bag filled with goodies. I made homemade Pina Colada sugar scrub. Also included was a aqua bath set and a bag of Hawaiian Macadamia caramel corn plus the pina colada sugar scrub and flip flop cookies.

The sugar scrub is made with sugar, coconut oil and pineapple essence oil.

  2. So colourful, fun and delicious! I hope your background soundtrack was all Jimmy Buffett! And here's a bad pun for you -- what do you call a French guy wearing sandals? Philippe Philoppe.

  5. What a fabulous party Linda! And it sounds like you ladies had a tropical feast! The tropical bird plates are so colorful and I love the hot pink chargers and stemware. The pool float drink holders are so much fun and how smart to put a parrot sticker on the water bottles! The casual fruit and flower centerpiece looks fantastic and needless to say the setting under your palapa by the pool is like a trip to the tropics! The flip flop cookies are so cute and wow, the party favor bag is packed with tropical goodies! You always go above and beyond and I know a wonderful time was had by all!

The flip flop cookies are such cute treats, and I'm sure your friends loved putting them in the treat totes when the went home. Your mermaid hutch/bar thingy is AH-mazing.

  19. Let the party begin, Linda! Wow. Your table is amazing. I truly felt like I was at a exquisite Carribean resort. So fun and very welcoming. It definitely conveys a "come on over and lets party" theme. I can't help but smile and even giggle at all of the great details. The parrot, the water bottle floats, the fun palm trees, the bright florals, the flower chargers and, of course, those amazing and colorful parrot plates. Everything caught my eye and it said lets have fun. The colorful tote bags and party favors are such a sweet and memorable touch.

The plates, the bottle stickers, the flip flop cookies, your centerpiece flower choices, and of course the delicious margaritas with their umbrellas - just perfect!
