Ansell's Spanish House Party

Spanish House Party

Ansell invited a few friends over for a Spanish themed party. In total we had about 12 people and it was a great mix of company.

Ansell made all the Spanish tapas himself. Here is he working on a Spanish omelet.

In total he made:

Grilled pepper sticks

Serrano ham with various olives on baguettes

Chorizo and Manchego, Tuna and tomato with anchovies, salmon and cream cheese with olives and cream cheese with guava paste on crackers. Shiva brought along peanut butter cookies.

Toasted bread with garlic and tomato, potatoes with aioli, deviled eggs (I did those!), Spanish omelets, and various olives.

One of our friends Jessie and his girlfriend brought along a baguette with Brie and homemade olive spread and sweet date spread.

Brian made an amazing pastry dessert with Brie and sugared walnuts.

Haysel made a delicious stiff flan that I didn’t get a picture of unfortunately.

We heard and exchanged some interesting stories while we ate. 

Mock fights broke out and champagne runs were made.

Then we smoked the hookah and Ansell showed our group some hookah tricks.

If you get a toilet paper tube, dip it into dish soap, then blow hookah smoke through it you can make smoke bubbles.

It’s fun to see how long you can keep the bubble in the air until it bursts.

It was a great night and a great success! Can’t wait to have another one… as long as Ansell still does the cooking!

The Look! Hippy Chic

I used the Glacial Grove Collection from Meow Cosmetics for this look. 

Woodlands was the eyeliner, Thicket on the eye, with Icebound as the brow highlight. I dusted the Gold Aurora from Meow Cosmetics over the whole eye for extra shine.


  1. Ooh the food looks tasty, it looks like the party was a wild success. Wish I could have been there!

  2. Wow, Ansell's cooking looks amazing! I second Arika, wish I could've been there!

  3. My mouth is watering over these pictures! Looks like fun!
