PLAY: Party Drinks

We recently hosted a cookout for a bunch of our friends.

As I was planning the menu and making a list of things to buy, I was overwhelmed by how expensive it was all going to be.  We have a small kitchen and did not have enough plates and silverware to accommodate everyone, but I didn't want to have to buy all disposable products for our guests.  Not only would it be expensive, it would have filled our trash can to the brim.

One very simple solution I came up with was to fill our drink bucket with individual ball jars filled with sweet tea and lemonade.  I only had one pitcher, which was being used for sangria, and I did not want to have to purchase another.  It made it so simple for guests to easily grab a drink without having to pour it and once I had them in the drink bucket, I did not have to think about them again.

It was so simple, easy, spill proof and economical!  Consider giving it a try at your next party!

And because we are talking parties, look at this amazing bouncy house my kids got to enjoy at a recent cookout we attended!  It put our croquet and bocce to shame!


  1. Oh I love the Ball jar idea! And you don't have to worry about people spilling when they pour! Great idea! Those bouncy things kind of creep me out, I would rather play croquet or bocce!! :)
