On Saturday night FabSugar  hosted her annual summer luau. Instead of throwing a regular luau, Fab's party had a sophisticated, chic black and white theme . While Fab created the look of the luau , I was in charge of the snacks  and specialty cocktail . To take a look at the food and decor of our memorable party, click the "Start" button.
Prepping the Party
I started prepping the food for the party on Thursday night. My to do list:
Dip marshmallows in chocolate and Oreo cookie crumbs
Assemble pigs in a blanket
Juice limes for Ti punch
Cut marshmallows into bite-sized pieces
Just before the party:
Bake pigs in a blanket
Assemble Ti punch
Fab requested that all of the food be placed on her kitchen table.
Luckily it all fit perfectly and made for a delicious-looking spread.
Incredibly popular, these pigs in a blanket  have now become one of my signature dishes .
Next time I want to experiment with tasty add ons like coleslaw, cheese, or mustard.
The Black and White Decor
Fab kept things festive with black and white M&Ms, white flower and mini umbrella bouquets, and Playboy bunny napkins.
When they arrived, guests were greeted with a black or white lei.
What a scrumptious surprise: Fab's mom made white chocolate macadamia nut cookies.
The marshmallows  were divine. Instead of individually dipping each square in chocolate and Oreo crumbs, I spread the melted chocolate all over the top of the marshmallow slab and covered this with the cookie crumbs. I let it set for an hour before flipping and repeating with the other side. To cut through the sticky sweet, I used a wet, hot knife.
The Ti punch
A mixture of Rhum, lime juice, and cane syrup, this cocktail  was tart and potent.
Flashing ice cubes floated in the punch bowl.
Even Fab's dog Annabelle  celebrated!
Here she is in her white lei, looking uber-cute.
