I announced last month that I am partnering with MakingLifeBetter.com for their Refreshing Summer Nights contest and newsletter. I’m excited to be their “entertaining expert”, writing tips to help you with ideas for simple backyard parties!
The voting for the photo contest has now begun, but you can still enter the 100 Grill Thrills Sweepstakes daily for the chance to win fantastic grill gadgets and summer must-haves!
Simple Party Ideas
One of my favorite summer entertaining tips for a party is to make a big batch of your favorite drink and serve in mason jars.
Use a 2″ circle paper punch to cut decorative scrapbook paper to glue onto the tops of the lids.
An even simpler idea is to use a cupcake paper liner and personalize with guests names!
Toss the jars into a big bucket of ice and they’re ready to serve! Any drink will do, I love to make these easy margaritas for adults and lemonade for the kids!
