How To Make Eco-Friendly Rustic Wine Glasses

It’s been a while since I dived into a eco-chic DIY project.  My latest project involved upcycling peanut butter jars into rustic wine glasses.  Bonus: I have included my summer White Wine & Elderflower Sangria. Mason jars have been the latest trend, and often used at rustic weddings or rustic soirees and dinner parties.  Well, move over mason jars, because peanut butter jars are the new rustic eco-friendly glass on the dinner table.  Whilst, I love mason jars repurposed as a drinking glass, I thought why go out and buy them just to be eco-friendly and on trend, when I can easily repurpose peanut butter jars?  When living an eco-friendly lifestyle it is great to find creative ways to upcycle, recycle, reuse and repurpose items you already have.  Recycling glass jars is fantastic! However, you can also repurpose the jars into trendy eco-chic drinking glasses. It’s been one hot summer, so cool down with a refreshing glass of White Wine Sangria with Elderflower. Make Your Own Rustic Wine Glasses What you will need: Peanut Butter jars …

North Pole Breakfast & NYE Brunch Edition

The North Pole Breakfast!  One of my besties told me about this.  On the morning of Christmas Day for family brunch I thought I would give it a whirl.  My version of a North Pole Breakfast was chocolate and marshmallow pancakes, covered in powered sugar with glasses of Pink Champagne.  Yum!  It was such a hit, it was served again on Boxing Day and today, New Year’s Eve- chances are it will be breakfast tomorrow. The Pancakes Gluten and dairy free. 🙂  One of my Christmas presents was a stencil set for making shapes in coffee.  They are great for decorating pancakes with powdered sugar. Frozen inspired pancake.   Run Run Rudolph  Cheers! Blood Orange Mimosas  All you will need is Blood Oranges and Pink Champagne.   New Year’s Eve Edition: NYE Brunch Pancakes were stuffed with chocolate, marshmallow and strawberry! Strawberry White Zinfandel Mimosa   Enjoy! Happy New Year! with love, xo P.S. NYE Brunch Crasher… King Kiwi

A wonderful way to grant some Christmas wishes and spread some holiday cheer is to make a donation to a local charity or volunteer your time in helping them with their efforts to make a difference in the world.  In the words of Winston Churchill, ” We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.”  This Christmas consider supporting and raising awareness for these wonderful local charities working towards making the world a better place, and improving the lives of so many people.
