Balloons and streamers can be placed above the dessert bar, at the entry, or serve as a backdrop for photos. This “love” balloon pack is a great deal and would be perfect for a Galentine’s party.

What you'll need:

  • 3 x Punnets of Strawberries
  • 2 x 250g bags of white chocolate melts
  • 1 x bottle of Jacob’s Creek Le Petite Rosé
  • 1 x Red Food Colouring
  • 1 x Yellow Food Colouring
  • Decorative Food Items (edible gold leaf, edible glitter, sprinkles, flowers, etc.

Step 1:

Wash your strawberries, and then place them in a large bowl. Take your bottle of Le Petite Rosé, and fill the entire bowl so your strawberries are covered. Place in fridge to soak overnight. You can leave them to soak for a few hours if you don’t want the rosé flavor to be as strong. 

Step 2:
Take your strawberries out of the fridge, and place on a paper towel. Dab them dry so the chocolate will stick to the strawberries.
Step 3:
Place your chocolate melts in a glass bowl. I like to melt them in the microwave, but you can also use the stove, depending on which you prefer. Melt and stir your chocolate until they have a smooth consistency.  
Step 4:
Color your chocolate using 2 parts red, 1 part yellow food coloring. I like to start with a light color, and gradually add more food coloring after dipping several strawberries to get a variation of different color shades.
Step 5:
Grab the stem of your strawberries and dip in the chocolate so that most of the strawberry is covered. Place on a cold tray or plate, and decorate while the chocolate is still wet. I like to use edible gold leaf, edible glitter, sprinkles, and flowers. Refrigerate strawberry's to let them set. 
Step 6:
Serve and enjoy! Eat them up and share your creations with me before you eat them! :) 

Make A Mimosa Bar

 

This is probably my favorite part of the party! I love the idea of adding pink cotton candy to champagne. You can get so creative with this.
