Yankee Doodle Dandy Party

This summer, enjoy a patriotic themed party any day, any time. Decorations are simple. The menu is even simpler. Just focus on summer favorites and fresh food and you have a winning event every single time.

Menu

  • Hot Dogs
  • Hamburgers
  • Potato Salad
  • Cole Slaw
  • Corn on the Cob
  • Baked Beans
  • Crudites with dressing
  • Watermelon
  • Ice Cream
  • Brownies

You can add and subtract dishes as needed depending on the size of the crowd at your event. The beauty of the menu is how easy it is to make more if late arrivals show up. Just keep the grill fired up and you can have fresh hot food ready in minutes.

Extra salads and desserts never go to waste. They make great leftovers following your event.

Decorations are even easier. A trip to The Dollar Tree offers you a variety of red, white & blue tableware & decorations. I found plates, napkins, tablecloths in all three colors. I also found the same items in solid colors. You can mix & match items to make things more interesting. I also found red, white & blue leis, beads, centerpieces, balloons and more. The hard part was stopping myself from buying more than I needed.

While at The Dollar Tree, I also found games that can be played during your event. These include things for the kids to play with during the party. They also had plenty of condiments and snacks that can be used during your event.

Need lots of products for your event? Buy in bulk at the Dollar Tree website.

Every mommy should know the first rule of entertaining is “Attend Your Own Party!” With this incredible menu and products from The Dollar Tree, you can be the #1 guest at your events all summer long!

Family Tips for a Successful Summer

MOM! I’m bored! How many times do you hear this over the summer? I would always tell our daughter that I wasn’t the entertainment director on the cruise & she should find something to do. Sometimes this worked however, there were times when I needed to come up with something for her to do.

Unfortunately, even the most creative mom runs out of ideas to keep the kids busy throughout the summer. That’s when the good people at BHG come to the rescue. This article offers tips to help you not only keep the kids busy but also stimulated mentally.

And remember, the days don’t need to be packed with Disney-like fun-filled activities. Sometimes, it’s fun to just turn on the hose & let the kids play. It’s always those simple things that make the best memories.
