Eclectic & Bright Table Toppers

Screen shot 2013-08-26 at 2.01.24 PMWe love everything about this look – the bright vibrant hues mixed with an eclectic combo of prints & patterns adds a distinctive punch to this “family style” event. Our watermelon feta skewer or peach caprese with mint adds a surprising spin to an end of summer soiree. Or our smoked deviled eggs with pickled jalapenos aren’t only hot & spicy good but compliment the playful ambience of the table. Today’s take away: not only mix & match the eclectic tabletop elements but include the food as part of the styling too!

This is one of our all time favorites and a recipe that’s easy to duplicate.  In this version we introduce tantalizing new flavors to a now common party staple like “salsa.”  Something about the salty feta and creamy avocado make “Our World Famous Avocado-Feta Salsa” addicting.  This is California in a bowl, summer style.  Fresh herbs and tangy red wine vinegar compliment this dish to the fullest.  Clean, creamy and tangy.  Great as a classic dip or as an amazing garnish to fish, grilled chicken or any sort of taco.   Cheers to easy summer living!
