Tropical Sangria Pops

{ Makes 4 pops }

Ingredients: 

½ cup raw coconut water

¾ cup Riesling (opt for organic if possible)

1 pineapple

1 mango

1 papaya

Special equipment: 

Popsicle molds & sticks

Mini heart-shaped cookie cutter

Directions:

  1. Slice up the tropical fruit in desired thickness for mini heart cut outs.  Then using a mini heart-shaped cookie cutter, cut out hearts using each of the three fruits.
  2. Stir together the coconut water and Riesling.
  3. Pour into popsicle molds.
  4. Make sure to leave enough room to add the heart-shaped fruit since the liquid will rise.
  5. Add in your tropical fruit hearts.
  6. Place in the freezer and freeze overnight.
  7. To remove pops, fill a bowl with warm water and set the molds in the bowl for about 20-30 seconds. The water should not cover the entire molds.
  8. Gently slide the pops out of the molds, and enjoy!

 

Secret Garden Wedding Inspiration featuring Flower Girls

 

The Secret Garden, one of Rent My Dust's favorite books is the inspiration of this sweetest of sweet styled shoot today featuring flower girls!  Concept and styling by Kaylah Key from KSquared Dallas invited us to be a part of this special shoot with a few of our most precious vintage items.  Just take one look at our vintage mismatched china and you will have to have it for your next party or wedding.  Our rustic potting table was used with our vintage medicine bottles as one of the cutest seating charts ever.  Our white chippy table played host to the delicious wedding cake by Cakes by Posey.  Just look at the beautiful florals by Lizzie Bee’s Flower Shoppe.  Photography by Callie Beth Photo & Design and the perfect venue, Dayspring Prayer Garden in Rockwall.  Be sure to check out the amazing vendors that made this a true joy and delight:
