1-800 Flowers Happy Hour Bouquet #Giveaway CLOSED!!

1-800-FLOWERS.COM is thrilled to announce the recently redesigned Happy Hour Collection! Due to popular demand, 1-800-FLOWERS.COM has created six new unique floral arrangements inspired by classic Happy Hour beverages. With the help of Celebrations.com Celebrity Party Planner Shawn Rabideau, the 1-800-FLOWERS.COM Happy Hour Collection came to life in an exclusive media event at The Culinary Loft in New York City !

Rabideau is the owner of Shawn Rabideau Events & Design, a full-service event production, floral design and Lifestyle Company. Past clients include celebrities such as Bethenny Frankel, Jennifer Lopez and Barbara Walters.

To help you re-create your own Happy Hour, Shawn Rabideau has provided his Rabido’s and Rabidon’ts for party planning, design and execution.

Rabido:

·         Have pre-made batches of Sangria ready to go in your fridge.

·         Save on stress and time – Look for sales in the grocery store for summer items such as chips, dips, brats, hot dogs and even beer.

·         Serve one specialty cocktail, beer, and red or white wine. It makes entertaining easy and there’s sure to be something for everyone!

·         Decorate your patio with potted herbs such as rosemary, thyme, basil, chervil, parsley sage and chives.  They are decorative, fragrant and perfect ingredients for summer cooking.

·         Entertain responsibly – ask who the Designated Drivers are before the party starts and have a special mock-tail for them.

Rabidon’t:

·         Don’t run out of ice.  If you have the space keep bags of pre-made ice at the ready in your freezer.

·         Don’t come up short on entertaining inventory.  Invest in acrylic glassware, cocktail plates, serving bowls and platters.

·         Don’t use forks for grilling because they’ll pierce the meat and you’ll lose all those flavorful juices.

·         Don’t get fussy with food.  Keep it simple, cubes of melon wrapped in prosciutto make for a quick and tasty summer treat.

·         Don’t let your patio be drab, dress it up with inexpensive throw pillows that can be used year after year.

One of my readers will win a Happy Hour Bouquet of choice from 1800Flowers.com!!

    My tip would be to just know going in to it that it's not going to perfect. And it's okay. No one expects it to be. Allowing for imperfection might allow you to chill out a bit more about it. won2xx at gmail dot com

    My best party tip is to do as much before the party as you can. Your party isn't suppose to be a busy time for you to 'work,' but to have fun and visit instead. If you're too busy running around, picking up trash, cooking, serving, making drinks and such, you won't have fun, and your guests will probably even think you're rude.Debbie Hewittthriftyandfrugal (at) hotmail (dot) com

    For a great Spooky twist have a Halloween Happy Hour! Drape old lace or "cobwebs" over photographs on the walls. Use inexpensive goblets to serve your devilish drinks in. And dont forget the spooky invitations! I love to use Evite.com so i can keep track of who is going to attend. That makes a trip to the store (and liquor store) so much easier to plan!fiesty1girl22@yahoo.com

    I like the tip on having pre-made batches of drinks on your fridge. I always do that! Easy to keep the drinks flowing at any party :)abgillette at gmail.com

    I liked the comment about don't run out of ice.. So simple.. So how do I always forget that one?? (I mean, yes, we never have room in our freezer, but a cooler would solve that !) belauvibes (at) yahoo (dot) com

    Always making sure everyone has a DD before the party is a GREAT tip! I would never tolerate a drunk driver leaving my house, and something happened, i wouldn't be able to live with the guilt that they came from my party. Better safe than sorry!linniegurl14 at gmail dot com

    This is one that I do: Save on stress and time – Look for sales in the grocery store for summer items such as chips, dips, brats, hot dogs and even beer.
