The fourth book in the #1 New York Times best-selling Descendants series, Escape from the Isle of the Lost, is IN STORES NOW!. Prepare for an explosive underwater battle between Mal and Uma with these Under the Sea Donut Kabobs!

Under the Sea Donut Kabobs - Descendants Party Ideas and Book Series

Escape from the Isle of the Lost Summary

Mal, Evie, Jay, and Carlos may have once been the baddest of the bad, but their wicked ways are (mostly) behind them—and now graduation is almost here! But before the seniors can don their custom-designed caps and gowns, courtesy of Evie, they’ve got an epic plan to put into action.

There are tons of villain kids on the Isle of the Lost who are eager for their chance to come to Auradon Prep—even Celia, Dr. Facilier’s trickster daughter, wants in on the deal!—and Mal’s crew is using their upcoming visit to the Isle to help make it happen. But Auradon’s biggest threat is still at large… Trapped on the other side of the barrier, Uma is more desperate than ever to get her long-awaited revenge against Mal. When she discovers an underground lair belonging to Hades, god of the underworld, Uma realizes she’s found the perfect partner in crime. Together, they can defeat Mal, bring down the barrier, and escape the Isle for good. Mal and Uma have a score to settle, and they’ll come face to face in an explosive underwater battle that could determine the fates of Auradon and the Isle of the Lost once and for all.

Under the Sea Donut Kabobs - Descendants Party Ideas and Book Series

Spoon several tablespoons of vanilla frosting into different small microwave safe bowls. Add a few drops of food coloring in each bowl to get your desired sea blue colors. I used several drops of blue with one drop of yellow for a pretty turquoise ocean blue. Mix blue and pink (or red) food coloring to make purple.

Microwave each bowl for about 30 seconds to heat the frosting for donut dipping.

Milo’s iced tea is so good! It’s an all natural award winning tea fresh brewed from real tea leaves.

I really like buying this tea because, not only do they use all-natural ingredients, but Milo’s Tea Company is a family, women-owned business.

Mermaid Rum Punch

Mermaid Rum Punch - an ocean blue tropical drink recipe with lemonade, coconut, white rum, banana that’s absolute magic!

Mermaid Rum Punch Recipe

When you’re wishing you could feel the ocean’s breeze on a hot summer day, this Mermaid Rum Punch is just what you’ll want to make! Whether you are lounging by the pool or headed to the beach, sipping on a cool frozen drink is perfect in summer. I’m excited that Natalie made such a fun cocktail for us today!

We’ve made a lot of rum drinks for you in the past, but this fun ocean blue rum punch might be one of the prettiest for sure! It’s not often that you can say you’re drinking mermaid punch right? This makes me wish I was back in beautiful Turks & Caicos for sure!

I would love to make a few pitchers of these mermaid drinks for a party or girl’s day out. If you like piña coladas, then you’ll love this new frozen drink. I have a few friends with summer birthdays and will definitely be making them!

w

Easy Ocean Blue Drink

To go along with it’s name, we definitely wanted this mermaid drink to look like a blue tropical ocean. Since this is mostly made of frozen lemonade, the blue look comes by adding Blue Curacao liqueur. Blue Curacao is made of citrus which gives it more of an orange lemon flavor. If you prefer your drink to taste more like a traditional piña colada, omit the Blue Curacao. You could also add a tablespoon of blueberry puree on the top for a similar blue ocean effect.

Mermaid Rum Punch Recipe - An ocean blue tropical frozen drink. Easy cocktail.

Mermaid Rum Punch Party Tips:

  • To add more flavor with less ice, which can water down the drink, freeze the banana and pineapple juice ahead of time.
  • Want the blue effect, but don’t have Blue Curacao? You can aways add blueberry puree. Or mix a few drops of blue food coloring into your blender when mixing.
  • Serve with blue drinking straws and and nautical shell cocktail napkins.
  • Love the seashell coasters in the photos? You can click here to find them on Amazon.
  • I love glass cups so you can see the blue swirled drink, but these Mermaid Squad cups are super cute and perfect for when you’re traveling or at the pool.

Cute & Easy Crawfish Cakes! Fun Food Idea for a Crawfish Boil by Amy Locurto. LivingLocurto.com

Cute Crawfish Boil Cakes

I had a ton of fun at a Crawfish Boil party this weekend! As you can see, I also had fun making cute crawfish cakes too!

If you’re not from the south, or have friends from Louisiana, then you have probably never been to a crawfish boil. Let me tell you, it’s so much fun when the host dumps a giant pot of steaming hot and spicy crawfish, potatoes and corn onto a long table covered with paper. Then it’s every man, woman and child for themselves!!

This was my husband’s first boil. It was obvious when he got his leg hair singed off after walking by the cooking pots! Luckily he just lost leg hair and not skin. Then I had to giggle when he was surprised that people ate off of the table. Once someone showed him how to get the meat out of the tail, he really liked it and jumped right into the fun. My kids, not so much! ha!

I kept hearing screams from kids who were playing with the live ones and getting pinched. Who knew a crawfish boil was so dangerous?

Fun Food Idea for a Crawfish Boil by Amy Locurto. LivingLocurto.com

Cute Dessert Idea

I love making animals out of cake. Thanks for giving me some great ideas for desserts over on Facebook! Many of you suggested key lime pie or lemon bars as they are desserts that compliment fish.

Then someone suggested cute crab cupcakes made with red icing and candy eyeballs. Those cupcakes inspired me to make these funny crawfish cakes!

Cute & Easy Crawfish Cakes! Fun Food Idea for a Crawfish Boil by Amy Locurto. LivingLocurto.com

How to Make Crawfish Boil Cakes

Since crawfish are more long than round, a cupcake wouldn’t work. I was going to bake brownies and cut them into rectangles. Then I lost track of time and realized I only had about an hour before the party began and I had not even gone food shopping yet! No time to bake anything. So I went to the store in search of ready-made brownies or a cake I could cut up.

Pre-made lady fingers were on sale, so I bought a few packages and figured I could make a crawfish with them. I had no idea if they would work or not. In about 20 minutes I had a huge platter full of funny crawfish cakes! They turned out so cute… everyone loved them!

These cute cakes are a fast and easy party dessert for a crawfish boil!

Cute & Easy Crawfish Cakes! Fun Food Idea for a Crawfish Boil by Amy Locurto. LivingLocurto.com

What you will need:

  • 2 packages of ladyfingers or you could bake brownies or a cake from scratch and cut into rectangles.
  • Candy Eyeballs
  • Twizzlers
  • Red Cake Frosting
  • Scissors

How to make crawfish cakes:

  1. Cut Twizzlers to look like pinching claws. Mine were about 2″ long, I cut into one end and trimmed the edges at an angle.
  2. Put some icing on a lady finger and stick the licorice into the frosting. Add more icing on top of the licorice and cake.
  3. Add another lady finger on top of the frosting to make a sandwich.
  4. Add more frosting to the top and attach two candy eyeballs.

That’s it and so easy!! I hope you have fun making these crawfish cakes.

5 Best Adult Games – No Supplies Needed

At your next party, be sure to have a few of these fun adult games in your head andready to play. Play these fun adult party games last minute anytime anywhere! The most you’ll need is a pen and paper. These hysterical adult party games cost nothing and make great icebreakers for any size of group.

Fun Adult Games to play at your next party or anywhere at anytime!


1. Celebrity

The object of the game Celebrity is to be quick thinking with names and be the last one standing!

How to play the game:

  1. Sit in a circle and go clockwise around the room.
  2. The first person starts by naming a celebrity by first and last name.
  3. The next person has 10 seconds to shout out a celebrity’s name that has a first name that starts with the letter of the previous person’s celebrity’s last name.

Example: If I say Will Ferrel, the next person would have to name a celebrity with the first name starting with the letter “F”,such as Frank Sinatra.

Rules of the game:

  • You’re out if you can’t think of a celebrity’s name in 10 seconds or less.
  • No repeating celebrity names. Once the name has been said, that’s it.
  • No one named celebrities.
  • If your celebrity’s first and last name start with the same letter, then you reverse and go counterclockwise, etc.

Example: If I said Amy Adams, the game reverses in the opposite direction.

Ways to make the game harder:

  • Have a theme such as movie stars, cartoon characters, musicians, etc.
  • Make it a drinking game and take a shot if you can’t think of a name in time.

 


2. Two Truths and a Lie

Two Truths and a Lie is a fun icebreaker game for a group to get to know each other better and perfect for all ages.

How to play the game:

  • Pick a person to start. They must tell two things about themselves that are true and one thing that is a lie.
  • Everyone gets to guess which fact is the lie.
  • Once everyone has guessed, the person will reveal what was true and what was the lie.
  • If only one person was correct, that person can go next. Or just go around in a circle.
  • This can go around as many times as you would like or just so everyone gets the chance to go once.

 


3. Name That Star

Name that star is a game similar to name that tune, but you have to name the singer or band, not the song.

How to play the game:

  • Write the names of famous singers or bands on small pieces of paper and place into a bowl. You’ll need 3-4 names per guest. Make sure these are names that the party guests will know.
  • Guests take turns picking out one name, then must sing a verse of that singer’s song.
  • The other guests will try to guess who the person is trying to be.
  • If you don’t know the star you picked, you can draw again, but you lose a life. Three lives lost and you’re out.
  • Give out prizes for the best performance.

5. Like & Hate

How to play the game:

  • Have everyone at the party write down some likes and dislikes on a sheet of paper.
  • Examples: LIKE: Chocolate, Traveling  •  HATE: Snakes, Asparagus
  • Collect the papers and have one person read them aloud one at a time while everyone else tries to guess who wrote what.
