Over on Offbeat Bride, we featured a Harry Potter bridal shower where they played Quidditch Beer Pong. I asked Rachel how to play, and she gave me all the magical details. Grab your butter beer, ping pong balls, and your wands, and let's play!

My favourite souvenirs from travel seem to be booze-related. I have a bunch of corks that I've saved from vineyard tours; bottle caps from my favourite beer at a brewery tour; and paper pub coasters from Hofbräuhaus. They're sentimental and touristy at the same time (not to mention cheap and easy to bring back home) — but right now they're just packed away. I want a way to display them that's tasteful or even useful, and I'm inspired by this quote from Suzanne and Tim over on Offbeat Bride…
My in-laws recently decided to stop drinking, and they're healthy and happy with the choice. However, I'm in a spot when it comes to an upcoming family party: I've never hosted non-drinkers. How do I gracefully support their choice without making them feel excluded or singled out?

I go to my buddy Jessica's house once a week so that she can make sure I'm eating at least one meal that's not microwavable, and this time I stopped drinking wine long enough to document her incredible kale salad recipe. (Not only that, but we got a little creative and made a cocktail out of the leftover kale stocks.)
Glühwein (mulled wine) is really popular in Germany at Christmas. You get it in every Christmas Market and a lot of people make their own at home. Glühwein is a hot drink traditionally made of red wine, tea, spices and sugar. So if you want to try it, I show you how.
It can be a challenge when it comes to Christmas shopping for your spouse, friend, parent, or co-worker… but the gift of booze is usually a win! The downside, however, is that a pre-packaged box or carton of booze can also come across as "easy" or "thoughtless." Well, I recently stumbled across a box that gave me an idea — a 12 bottle storage box could be transformed into "The 12 Beers of Christmas!"
