Tapas for Ta-Tas

My motto is "there's never a wrong reason to celebrate" and partying for a good cause is always the

wRight reason! October is breast cancer awareness month and the perfect opportunity for this Tapas for Ta Tas affair. You and your friends can get together to educate others about breast cancer in a unique and tasty way. Besides, there is nothing better than partying for a good cause!

Serve a variety of tapas or appetizer platters. Tapas can include shrimp, chicken, beef, fish, pork, and vegetables and can be served hot or cold. Usually small and mobile, these morsels will allow attendees to be social. Common tapas dishes are meatballs, cheeses, empanadas, and kabobs. You will need toothpicks to ration portions. Serve Nuvo cocktails to supplement the food.

Pour strawberry yogurt into cups and layer with chopped strawberries or kiwi and granola for something sweet.

You can find information on a variety of breast cancer awareness websites. You can contact local advocacy affiliates or your doctor for resources such as pamphlets, fact sheets, or premiums. I would suggest making it fun with trivia and quizzes.

For those in attendance, make a small donation to an awareness organization on their behalf, such as the Susan G. Komen Foundation or provide favor items that benefit research such as these keychains.

These pom-pom lanterns on Good Things Wedding Favors were simply adorable! Include various shades of pink (baby pink, coral, fuschia, etc.) and pink patterned napkins, table cloths, plates to break up the monotony, we don’t want it to look like (a Pepto Party, do we?) More of an intimate affair? Consider these beautiful paper bouquets over at Pop Flower Shop as centerpieces.
