Along with a fabulous giveaway, I’m sharing some simple entertaining ideas and free party printables to help you plan a casual happy hour. PLUS there is an awesome giveaway today valued at $170!
Invite your favorite ladies over for cocktails and an afternoon of girl time fun! Don’t forget to take a lot of photos.
Anytime I plan a party, I always think about the food first. I’ve been working with Ristorante by Dr. Oetker and not only did their delicious pizza come through for my family game night, it was perfect for the happy hour I recently hosted for my besties to get the first look at my new studio!
I was busy designing these cute free printables for you so I didn’t have a lot of time to make a recipe from scratch. Popping yummy Quattro Formaggi Ristorante pizza in the oven was the perfect party solution! I love that it has blue cheese and crunchy crust. Not your typical frozen pizza!
Check out the Ristorante Store Locator to find this frozen pizza near you. Put in a request with the store manager of your local supermarket if they don’t currently sell Ristorante.
(Don’t miss the awesome giveaway at the bottom of this post to win some pizza for yourself!)
I decorated a simple table setting with just a few things. Fresh flowers, drinks, snacks, my free party printables and a tall cupcake stand filled with pizza.
Cupcake wrappers are not only for cake, I love using them for many things! Adding bite sized pizza slices made it easy for my friends to snack while chatting.
Finger foods are the best when having a casual gathering!
Along with pizza, I also made delicious blackberry and goat cheese appetizers. These take no time at all and taste amazing with the savory taste of pizza.
Spread goat cheese on a cracker, top with a blackberry and drizzle with honey. So easy!
I also grabbed some ready made brownies along with humus and veggies from my local market and attached a cute printable tag onto a straw and stuck them in the food.
What happy hour drinks should you serve with pizza?
Juicy fruit flavors will help bring out the savory flavors, not just in the topping but also from the crispy dough base.
I made a big batch of Skinny Sangria! I will be sharing my recipe soon because it turned out fabulous!
The best wines for pizza are usually red wines. But not everyone likes reds, so a fuller-bodied white wine or Champagne would also be delicious with the right pizza.
I’m so happy I had a great day in with friends! I encourage you to do the same:-)
