It feels like not that long ago, the term “Party Safe” ment… Don’t leave your drink outside the bar bathroom and make sure you have a condom. Oh my how times have changed, for the better of course! Since the 1st official long weekend of the summer is upon us, it is time for…COCKTAILS, what else! Hopefully mother nature will be as excited as I am and give us some fabulous weather to go along with our party plans. Wether your heading to the cottage, hanging on a patio or with friends around home. A summer long weekend just screams Party Time. Shake off the dust from a long winter and show the world your white pasty self! I LOVE to throw parties…and for me, it’s all about being a Fabulous host. Making all my guests feel special and that I am truly thrilled they are spending time with me. When I was asked to be a spokes person for the LCBO’s Deflate the Elephant campaign, I was thrilled.
