Whisk together pineapple juice, cream of coconut, heavy cream, orange juice and rum. Place 2 1/2 cups ice in a blender, then and add 1 cup drink mixture. Blend until smooth, and pour into prepared glasses. (If mixture is too thick, add more pineapple juice before serving.) Repeat process with remaining ice and mixture.
TIP: For the blood rim, stir red food coloring into corn syrup. Then, dip the rims of the glasses into the mixture and turn over to allow the mixture to drip down the sides.
TIP: The original recipe calls for canned lychee, red preserves, and blueberries to make the eyeball garnish. You can also take the fast route and purchase some gummy eyeballs from your local grocery store.

There are so many ways to incorporate pine cones into your Fall wedding and event decor. Incorporate them into your florals, reception table setup, and even favors!
I have seen the tree stump wedding cake stand, but never thought of using one as a guestbook! What a novel idea; guests are given the opportunity to share their best wishes using a permanent marker on the top surface of the tree stump. After the wedding, the tree stump will serve as a beautiful home decor piece as well as a special memory of your wedding day.
What a great DIY idea for Fall weddings - leaf escort cards! Gather leaves from the yard and use a metallic pen to write in the names. You can also hire a calligrapher to fill in the names for you.
Want to add an extra special touch to your escort card table? Begin by filling a festive vase with moss and branches. Then, tie strings to the stems of the leaves and hang each from the branches. Or, you can cut slits into the branches and carefully tuck the leaves into the open slits. The perfect setup for a Fall escort card table!
Add a fun twist to cocktail hour with a cotton candy martini bar. Present each martini glass with a different cotton candy color and pair with complementary cocktail recipes. Experiment in advance with flavored vodkas like Cotton Candy Pinnacle Vodka along with fruit juices. Guests will love watching the cotton candy melt into the cocktail before enjoying the delectable concoction!
Marking your RSVP'S with numbers or initials can be very helpful when you need to track an RSVP that a guest forgot to write their name on. If you want to make the markings discreet, use an invisible ink pen. You can get them at online stores like paper-source.com or dx.com. The ink only shows up when you shine the pen light over it so your guests will never see the markings!
