Have you been on vacation yet?
How would a tropical island vacation sound?
Well, a tropical vacation isn’t in the budget for this year, but you can create a fun vacation feeling by hosting a Hawaiian Themed Cocktail Party.
All last week I shared DIY projects and tips for creating a mini-tropical vacation for your friends at your own home.
I got so wrapped up in all the decorations and recipes that I felt like I’d been sipping Pina Coladas. Oh wait, that did happen. LOL
Yes, I shared a yummy Pina Colada Martini recipe, and you know I’d never share a recipe that I didn’t sample first.
Let’s take a look back at all the tropical adventures that happened right here on The Dirt Road.
Adventures at the End of the Dirt Road
This is a look back at all my adventures this past week.
Although the week has been filled with a fun tropical theme, it’s actually been raining all week, and the temperatures have dropped again.
We spent Father’s Day in the pool, but from that point on, it’s been pretty soggy.
Rudy and Millie are really bonding, and it was so fun to watch them playing together last weekend.
However, it was sad when Millie went home. See them playing together.
After all the rain, the flowers are flourishing on the mimosa tree, and the magnolia blooms smell so good.
In Case You Missed It
Here are all the blog posts I shared last week. If you didn’t get to see them all, here’s a recap.
A perfect summer cocktail. There’s a trick to getting the blue on the bottom without turning the entire cocktail blue. See the recipe for details.
Two Tropical DIY Projects
First, I made a Tropical Pom Pom Napkin Rings Dupe, which saved me so much money.
And then the Tropical Round Placemats with Raffia added to the tropical vibe.
It’s over-the-top decorating when you plan a Tropical Cocktail party tablescape. See all the fun and budget-friendly options I shared.

Why Didn’t I Think of That?
Each week there are so many wonderful blog posts, and I’m sharing some of my favorites with you today.
There are so many creative ideas, and I’m always asking myself, “Why didn’t I think of that”? LOL
Wait until you see the creative ideas for this French Linen Painted Buffet.
This might be the cutest garden Scarecrow I’ve ever seen, and you can see how to make one yourself.
I’d love to go thrifting in Vermont after seeing these great finds.
I love a fresh rosemary wreath, and you can see how to make one.
What’s in my cart
It’s been a slow shopping week.
We finished up a huge project, that I’ve been purchasing items these items for.
Can you guess what we’ve built?
I really like this bamboo cutlery set.
