Hail to the Bananas!!!

Unexpectedly Fabulous Event: August 25th - Banana Split Day!

Two of my favorite things are ice cream and cocktails...that must be why I love the idea of a Banana Split Bar!  What a fun, and completely impromtu party that you can host for your friends in a matter of minutes.  Here are the quick and Fabulous details:

Quick Eats: Provide a couple varieties of ice cream and the bananas, and invite your guests to bring their favorite toppings.  Voila!  A complete bar of ice cream toppings with no effort!

Rapid Decor:  To dress up your ice cream toppings bar, use glass bowls and martini glasses to hold the different toppings.  It will make your banana split bar Fabulous and sophisticated in seconds!

Cheers!:  How about the Banana Split Cocktail!  Just mix 1/2 ounce banana liqueur with 1/2 ounce Kahlua in a shaker with ice and pour into a martini glass to serve.

WOW Factor:  Ready to make your guests go bananas?  Create a quick Ice Cream Parlor sign for the centerpiece of your banana split bar.  You can easy print one out on cardstock on your lunch break (you are reading this on your lunch break right now, aren't you? :) ), tape or hot glue gun it to a straw, and stick it in a tall glass vase in the center of your bar.

Feeling bananas yourself?  You can make topping labels for your containers in seconds - just print the topping names in color ink from that same computer you made your parlor sign from, cute them in fun and funky Fabulous shapes, and tape them onto your glass containers or martini glasses.  Instant WOW in the details!
