Cocktail Friday – Grain Bar’s Walk Of Fame

Grain Bar Walk Of Fame

This Cocktail Friday, perhaps it’s the Grain Bar’s combination of the Hennessy VS with the strawberry liquer and mint that I find so tempting – or perhaps it’s because it looks like an irresistibly refreshing granita; either way, imagine serving it on a tray at your reception as an “aperitif”; very glamorous – just like a Walk of Fame!

Ingredients:
50ml Hennessy VS
30ml strawberry puree
10ml Fraise de Bois

Method:
Combine all ingredients and served with churned crushed ice in a julep mug. Garnish with mint.

The Huntress & Co. Dream Catchers

The Huntress & Co. is a rustic bohemian design and lifestyle brand based in Gippsland, Victoria. Creator Klaire Anderson makes gypsy-luxe dream catchers and table décor as well as indoor and outdoor feature pieces made from feathers, driftwood, antlers and animal skulls local to her area.

One of a kind dream catchers are a unique gift for your bridal party or a feature piece for your ceremony. A giant dream catcher or a mix of a few different sizes would be a perfect addition to a bohemian inspired wedding. Klaire likes to get to know her brides to really understand what they want from their special day in person or through email. She’ll chat with you about your colour scheme, what colour the bridesmaids’ dresses are or what flowers you have chosen for the bouquets. Klaire will also have a look through your Pinterest boards for a sense of identity! Dream catchers should blend in effortlessly with their surroundings yet be special enough to keep for the rest of your life.

If custom order isn’t something you’re after, The Huntress & Co. does offer a hiring service for your special day. A selection of giant dream catchers are available for hire in an array of different colours to suit your palette, whether that be neutral or even something different with a 70’s vibe.

The Huntress & Co. also offers various options for table décor in collaboration with your florist. Why not add vintage mugs with succulents, distressed mason jars or naturally shed antlers to the tables to give the day that rustic bohemian feel. Friends and family can reminisce about mugs from their past or what the mason jars might have been used for. Having a few antlers scattered on each table with flowers and greenery is a beautiful connection to the wild; as the deers naturally shed their antlers to regrow new ones, this would be a perfect symbol of your ever-growing relationship.

If you’re looking to have a Coachella or Gypsy High Tea themed bridal shower these services are available for events like that too. Everything made or hired in Victoria will be delivered and styled by Klaire. If you have ordered dream catchers or distressed mason jars as bridal party gifts, they will be wrapped in individual boxes with tissue paper, dried flowers, sticks of incense and a personalised note that can be shipped around Australia. Klaire prides herself in creating personal off-beat pieces of art that have meaning to each person that sees it – especially when it comes to a couple with a bond of unbreakable love.
