This was our April's entertaining party, a little late to the blog but better late than never! I had gotten my dates mixed up thinking the party was on Sunday except on Saturday at 5pm, our guests arrived to our surprise. Thank goodness we had started prepping that very day, the decor was all up and Nick just had to keep on cooking.
This was inspired by the Kawaii Monster Cafe I went to in Tokyo, I wanted to create that over the top feel. I also wanted to challenge myself by building a balloon arch, it wasn't as hard as I imagined it to be. We strung up giant panda bears and honeycomb balls to fill up the space. The bigger your decor is, the easier it is to quickly fill up your spsace.
Nicholas made Chinese Tofu pudding from scratch along with the syrup. Our guests bought cakes from their recent trip to Croatia. That kept the guests fed while Nick was firing away in the kitchen. Not pictured is a mango and pineapple chow I quickly whipped up. We bought the cutest cat rice molds from Japan and we put it to use. We made onigiris with a teriyaki beef filling. To continue with the Japanese theme, we put together a salad with a Japanese dressing. The main course was beer battered chicken wings.
Not bad for being caught off guard, if I must say so myself.
