The good news from all of us who enjoy Paul Lowe of Sweet Paul is the launch of his digital magazine. The first issue is awesome. I browsed the issue and compiled a list of 4 easy entertaining ideas that you could recycle for your next party.

First, Paul shared a simple way to create an adorable drink station and a unique way to serve cheese.

Because we always need time-saving ideas to serve home made bites for a before dinner cocktail, look no further them store-bought puff pastry or phyllo dough to come to your rescue. No cooking skill is necessary to make these classic puff pastry hors d’oeuvre pillows.

Then, continue to impress your guess by serving them for the first course this stylish apple and chevre salad with honey vinaigrette. Again, you put your efforts on the food presentation. The recipe itself is pretty straight forward to execute.

Kids Party

circus-themed birthday party for kids

If you are looking for relatively simple ideas to decorate food for a circus-themed party, check out these circus animal silhouette cookies. They look sophisticated! If you get a cookie cutter or make a template, it should not be too hard to fashion your own seal or chocolate elephant cookies. Adding a few props creates the WOW factor. The magazine contains more food and drink recipes to host a memorable circus-themed birthday party.
