Mason Jar Cocktails
What’s a good party without a tasty cocktail? Once you mixed up party cocktail, pour into mason jars, screw on the lid and dunk the whole thing into an ice bucket. This will is a fun treat for your adult guests to go dunking for.
Pre-scoop Ice Cream For The Freezer
If ice cream is going to be on the menu (and it better!), then try to pre-scoop it in the morning and keep in the freezer until it’s time to share. Scoop out ice cream balls into cupcake liners and use the muffin tin to keep them all sorted. Add some sprinkles and chocolate syrup before serving and you’re good to go.
Try A Water Balloon Pinata
Take several water balloons and tie them on a clothesline. Wrap a blindfold around the kiddies and hand them a whiffle bat. Then step back and watch the fun. Speaking of water balloons, frozen water balloons in a bucket are great to keep drinks cool. When the ice melts, the splashing begins.
Set up a S’mores Bar
Place a few Sterno cans in pan or chafing dish. This is what you’ll be roasting your marshmallows over. It’s a lot better than trying to set up a bonfire in the backyard. Add plates of Graham crackers, chocolate and other goodies and you’ve got the one area where no one will ever leave.
