My hostess wants to do a Red, White & Blue theme. I looked on Consultant's Corner and I don't have all the tools to do the recipes that I saw there. We are military & my director is moving off the island before the show, so I can't borrow equipment from her. So I'm stuck improvising. I'm only coming up with dessert ideas. Do something crafty with Watermellon Cupcakes with white icing, star sprinkles - arranged in the shape of a star on the round platter Revamp the Candycane Brownie Lollipops - use white chocolate & red/white/blue sprinkles. Still trying to come up with an idea for the stick. Doubt I could find candycanes this time of year on this island. Revamp the Chocolate Velvet Cake with Strawberries - use a strawberry cake mix & white chocolate. Decorate with strawberries AND blueberries. Revamp the Fruit Topped Triple Chocolate Pizza - bake in the rectangle stone and decorate the top with blueberries & strawberries Sundae spread Can't think of anything red/white/blue for the Quick Stir Pitcher. I'm thinking either Lemonade or something red. I have pretty much everything from the BBQ set including 2 grill baskets (do not have the skewer set). Other outdoor products that I have are: 2 qt & 8 qt Collapsible bowls, Outdoor Serving Set, 1 set of Outdoor Tumblers, Outdoor Caddy (do not have the plates/utensils), both sizes of the Quick Stir Pitchers, & the Outdoor Party Sticks. I do NOT have the trifle bowl. :grumpy: I have a bunch of the Simple Additions pieces including the large round platter & the large rectangle platter w/ handles, the woven round tray, etc. And I have most of the bamboo products. I even have the retired stars & stripes tablecloth, hand towels, and basket liner! So I'm doing pretty good on display items. I'm just stuck on more recipe ideas!!! I have cookware & Forged Cutlery running out my ears, but I need to invest in cookbooks next!!! LOL Oh, I have most of the spices too. Here's my delima. Being on a military base in Okinawa, Japan I do not have time to order the trifle bowl before the show. It takes a good 4 weeks to get a shipment here compliments of PC's new "smart post" shipping method. :cry: Anybody have any brilliant ideas that could help me with the tools that I do have??? I'd like to give the host more ideas than just desserts. I do the interactive shows where I give the guests the recipe & let them do the prep. They LOVE it. When there are 6 or more guests, we do more than one recipe ... usually a meal item & a dessert, so they can split into two groups and have more hands on time.
