Van Clover Club Cocktail, birthday party

Van Clover Club & Birthday Extravaganza

Why does magic have to stop once you hit puberty?! Who said fairies and unicorns don’t exist?! Well scientists, but that’s besides the point. I never quite understood why whimsy stopped at adulthood… probably the most obvious statement given I created The Frosted Petticoat. But my point is this: magic and fairy dust should always have a place in your life. It adds fun and happiness to life, qualities that Disney makes billions upon billions of dollars on a year.

Cocktail: Peach & Coconut Mojito

This post is sponsored by Perrier® Carbonated Mineral Water but the content and opinions expressed here are my own. I don’t know about the rest of the country, but here in Texas we are already steamy.

Because, like my Grand Pop always used to say “Why not fix a good thing?!” …
