It's summer time here at my house. While summer may not actually start until June 21st, the boys are out of school and we are in summer mode! Summer is just a bit more relaxed and low key. Time to call up some friends, fire up the grill and make some summer memories. Whether it’s the 4th of July, or a Sunday afternoon, there’s nothing better than a summer party.
Here in the south, it gets hot and I mean H-O-T! The best way to cool down is with a cold treat. The folks at Bomb Pop asked if they could send me a few boxes of the Original treats. You know I said yes...my boys would have been so sad if I declined those yummy treats. They jumped for joy when I pulled a box out as an after dinner dessert. Of course since I would be the one doing the review, I had to give one a try as well. Blogging can be such hard work--tee hee!)
My boys loved the Bomb Pop and have already polished off 3 or 4 more since I got them. I thought they were great as well - very refreshing and perfect summer treat. I have to admit they brought back memories of me standing in line the ice cream truck when I was little.
Why not put together your own summer party. Call up friends and family and tell them to mark their calendar. Pick up some hot dogs, burgers and a couple boxes of Bomb Pops while you are shopping at Publix. Sometimes the best parties are those that aren't too fussy.
Summer parties are fantastic because you can do everything outside at a leisurely pace.
One of the most stressful parts of hosting a party is having to obsessively clean your house and make sure you have seating to accommodate everyone. Outdoor parties are much more casual. What's great is that everyone has a seat as long as you have plenty of blankets and towels! Paper plates and plastic cups are expected and perfect for quick and easy clean ups. Fun paper decorations can be added to your party area. Consider using fun summer themed decor for your get together.
The most important rule at a summer party...just have fun! Whip out a box of Bomb Pops and you are sure to see a bunch of smiles on your guest's faces.
