    Happy Tuesday Loves ♥ ICYMI, I spent the entire weekend relaxing by the pool, sipping on some refreshing drinks in Palm Springs with my bestie for her birthday! Even though it was a hot one (over 115 degrees, no joke) my bestie + I set up a little back yard BBQ in just a few easy steps, making this hot desert weekend one for the books!

    Whether you are throwing a party or just entertaining with a few friends, setting up the perfect luncheon is easy with Minute Maid® LemonadeSprite® from Kroger.

    BBQ’s are always a summer time favorite, and one of my favorite ways to stay refreshed is with a cute little beverage bar!

    Honestly, a colorful display always adds a little ‘fun’ to any get together, so I am going to show you how to set up the perfect BBQ.

    1.Head to your local Kroger store to stock up on your favorite Minute Maid + Sprite beverages along with other BBQ essentials like watermelon, hot dogs etc.

    What I love about Minute Maid is that it is made with the goodness of real lemons, Minute Maid Lemonade is the quintessential refreshing beverage with the great taste of a simpler time

    P.S. If you buy any 2 Minute Maid or Sprite 2 liters at a Kroger store, you can save $1 off your watermelon purchase! (Don’t you love a good deal? I sure do!)

    Also, be sure to be on the lookout for the look for 2 liter toppers and tear pad with coupons for additional savings!!

    2.Grab your BBQ wear + picnic essentials. This little set was an unexpected find at my bestie’s house (clearly she was ready for a back yard feast!)

    3.Begin prepping the beverage bar!

    So everyone loves a fun summer twist when it comes to have the perfect #SummerRefreshment, so I decided to incorporate the perfect summer fruit in my drinks, WATERMELON!

    While I kept a whole watermelon for decor on the table, I sliced other pieces of watermelon into cubes to put in the mason jar glasses (because mason jars area always a good idea hehe :p) to add a little extra fruit flavor to the beverages being served. Also, the watermelon accents add to the overall ‘Insta-Worthyness’ of the drinks haha!

    4.Set up the drinks!

    I LOVE mason jars, if that weren’t already obvious, so when my bestie pulled these out of her kitchen cabinet, I instantly fell in L O V E!

    One jar to be filled with Sprite, and one jar to be filled with Minute Maid. Perfect for serving amongst family + friends (and prevents messes and spilling from over pouring).

    5.Bring out the food + glasses!

    After setting up the beverages, it’s time to bring out the glasses + food while it’s hot. Hot dogs are always my favorite BBQ go-to so I chose to make those for our little summertime gathering.

    6.Pour a glass + enjoy!!

    Finally, it’s time to create your yummy beverage! Simply pick your favorite drink + pour it into your watermelon accented glass to combine the two for a refreshing summer treat.

    Here Is What You Will Need To Pick Up At Your Local Kroger Store (I went to Ralphs):

    *Coca-Cola Classic: 6 pack 1/2 liter bottles (this way everyone can have their own drink without worries of spilling when pouring or drinking)

    *TRISCUIT Original

    *Grape Tomatoes

    *Fresh Mozzarella

    Step 1. Cut the grape tomatoes into thin slices (you can also vary them by making some slices thicker than others for those guests who may love tomatoes)

    What’s great about grape tomatoes is they have that extra little crunch + even though they are small, they are still savory!

    Step 2. Cut your fresh mozzarella into thin to medium slices (remember, you may also need to cut them into a smaller shapes depending what size + shape the mozzarella you purchased is in – The goal is to have the slice cover the TRISCUIT without falling off the edges)

    Step 3. Place the slice of mozzarella onto the TRISCUIT + add a slice or two of grape tomatoes on top! 

    If your guests like a little drizzle of balsamic vinaigrette, you can include that as well or even leave the bottle of dressing on the table near where the snacks are being served so guests can add their own extra flavor is need be.

    This recipe is simple + is just like a Caprese salad or sandwich except in easy bite size form for any game day party!

     Just call me hostess with the mostess! As I get older, I am slowly but surely learning how much prep work goes in to throwing the ‘perfect party‘ or gathering (it’s a lot…Martha Stewart I give you credit :p). Between the shopping, coordinating, decorating etc. It really takes a lot of time and attention to detail, so what’s a gal to do when she has just 2 days to plan and throw the best NCAA viewing party ever? (ok…exaggerating a little…it may not have been the ‘best’ but it was pretty close if you ask me haha!) Make a plan + get to it! Here’s my ‘How to throw a fun bash on a budget!’missyonmadison, melissa tierney, ncaa party, basketball season, ralphs, ralphs supermarket, oreos, oreo, popcorn, party snacks, how to throw a party, throw a party on a budget, coke zero, coke zero party, grocery shopping,missyonmadison, melissa tierney, ncaa party, basketball season, ralphs, ralphs supermarket, oreos, oreo, popcorn, party snacks, how to throw a party, throw a party on a budget, coke zero, coke zero party, grocery shopping,

    There is no handbook on how to throw a fun, affordable get together, but here are a few of my awesome tips that helped me prep for a great NCAA viewing party!

    1.Make a list of your party essentials — I am a visual person so making a list of the snacks, decor or favors I will need really helps me prep for my trip to the store (plus it helps me make sure I don’t forget anything)!missyonmadison, melissa tierney, ncaa party, basketball season, ralphs, ralphs supermarket, oreos, oreo, popcorn, party snacks, how to throw a party, throw a party on a budget, coke zero, coke zero party, grocery shopping,missyonmadison, melissa tierney, ncaa party, basketball season, ralphs, ralphs supermarket, oreos, oreo, popcorn, party snacks, how to throw a party, throw a party on a budget, coke zero, coke zero party, grocery shopping,

    2.Search your local stores flyers to circle what items you need — This is a great chance to see what specials are happening / sales going on. I got lucky at Von’s and discovered thatCoca-Cola Zero™ was on sale just in time for my viewing party! (Usually, the more you buy, the more you save — this kind of deal is perfect for a party since you are normally buying in bulk anyway)!missyonmadison, melissa tierney, ncaa party, basketball season, ralphs, ralphs supermarket, oreos, oreo, popcorn, party snacks, how to throw a party, throw a party on a budget, coke zero, coke zero party, grocery shopping,missyonmadison, melissa tierney, ncaa party, basketball season, ralphs, ralphs supermarket, oreos, oreo, popcorn, party snacks, how to throw a party, throw a party on a budget, coke zero, coke zero party, grocery shopping,

    3.Head to the store — After getting your list together and going through the weekly circular to make note of what to get, it’s time to head to the store and stock up (and save)!

    For this party, I headed to Von’s to shop for my party snacks (specifically Coke Zero + OREO…they are kinda my favorite + super yummy…so if there are leftovers, I get to have what I actually like haha!)missyonmadison, melissa tierney, ncaa party, basketball season, ralphs, ralphs supermarket, oreos, oreo, popcorn, party snacks, how to throw a party, throw a party on a budget, coke zero, coke zero party, grocery shopping,missyonmadison, melissa tierney, ncaa party, basketball season, ralphs, ralphs supermarket, oreos, oreo, popcorn, party snacks, how to throw a party, throw a party on a budget, coke zero, coke zero party, grocery shopping,missyonmadison, melissa tierney, ncaa party, basketball season, ralphs, ralphs supermarket, oreos, oreo, popcorn, party snacks, how to throw a party, throw a party on a budget, coke zero, coke zero party, grocery shopping,
