A reader shared these creative invitations for a Maine summer wedding with us. What a cute way to get guests excited about this New England affair. The actual invitation information is printed on the lobster tags. The outer packaging of the box was really cute, but we had to omit that to protect personal information.
Here is a great rub recipe for grilled chicken thighs. Once the heat hits the rub, the brown sugar starts to caramelize, creating a delicious crunch on the outside of the chicken.
Sweet and Spicy Grilled Chicken Thighs
4 tablespoons dark brown sugar
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon chili powder
3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon ground chipotle chile pepper or red pepper flakes
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1.5 pounds skinless, boneless chicken thighs
Mix together all ingredients, rub thoroughly over chicken thighs, and grill for 20 minutes or until done.
These BlumeBuds are a great idea for your spring or summer bridal shower, bridesmaids’ luncheon, or birthday party. I saw them the other day at a shower, and they are even cuter in person. At $9 for a 6-pack, they are totally reasonable and come in so many colors that they are bound to match the palette for any event!
