I need some help with a few things, and I always get such great ideas from you, I thought I would just post them and see what happens.
1.) I'm hosting our neighborhood book club next month, and I need to make refreshments. We meet at 9:00PM and there are usually anywhere from 5-15 people. Typical refreshments have been a variety of popcorns, smoothies, cookies, candy, etc. I'd probably prefer something that can be plated and served, but I can't think of anything no-fail that's really yummy and unique. Any ideas?
2.) Yaks turns two in a couple weeks and I want to have a triangle birthday theme for him (he loves triangles, thanks to Sesame Street). I'm trying to think of easy things I can do for decorations and I'm stumped on the cake (cut it into a triangle shape? Do triangle toothpicks?), and things like streamers (triangular streamers?).
I also wanted to make a scepter similar to the one they have on Sesame street (basically a dowel with a triangle stuck on the top), but I'm afraid Yaks will use it like he does any other stick-like object, and turn it into a lethal weapon. I need a material that is either mold-able or cut-able to shape into a triangle that won't be dangerous if he swings it into his sister's eye (sigh).
