As you are all very aware, Summer is flying by. In fact, this Sunday, September 22, we will have to say goodbye to Summer and hello to Fall. Are you ready for it? I sure am, but I’m still thankful that Popsicles are perfect whatever the weather is like outside.
To send off Summer this year, we hosted a Popsicle Pop-up Party one Sunday night after church. Oh my goodness! We had so much fun! We had a great turnout, and the decorations and the Popsicles were a hit!
I want to share some of my favorite pictures with you from our party. After that, I’ll have a super-easy, super-fantastic recipe to share with you, so be sure to catch that!
First, here are all the kids dressed to the nines for the Popsicle pop-up party! (By the way, Gage isn’t crying – that’s his *Cheese* face.)
And, hubby and I also got matching t-shirts:
For the theme of the party, I went with Popsicles and Polka Dots. Here’s the candy confetti I spread on the tables. (Made with Chewy Spree and Mike & Ikes.) :
Next, the food and other decorations:
The biggest hit of the night was the Popsicle slushies. They were SO easy to make, and I must have made 50 of them that night. Want to know how to make them for your own Popsicle party? It’s SO easy!
You only need 2 ingredients:
- Room Temperature Sprite
- Orange, Cherry, and Grape flavored Popsicles
Make sure you also have a glass to pour it in and you may want a straw to keep from getting a Popsicle-colored mustache. 🙂 (Unless you want a Popsicle-colored mustache. Then, by all means, skip the straw!)
All you do is put a Popsicle in a cup, and pour room temperature Sprite over it. Then, drink it up!
Just be sure you use room temperature Sprite. Cold Sprite doesn’t melt the Popsicles as quickly, so it takes longer to get to the yummy goodness.
That’s all it takes, and you instantly have a super-yummy drink that everyone will love!
You’ll definitely have to give this a try and let me know what you think!
Also, I’ve created a few free printables for you that I created for our party. Just click on the pictures below to be taken to the PDF version to print for yourself. And, don’t worry. There are NO copyright signs on the printables.
First, a Happy Birthday sign to hang anywhere you’d like. Just write in the name of the birthday prince or princess in the blank space:
And, lastly, we have the large Popsicle decorations. Just print a few of these off (cardstock is the best), cut them out, and glue 2 large Popsicle sticks to the bottom, and you instantly have Popsicle decorations for your Popsicle party!
I love the way our Popsicle Pop-Up Party turned out, and I’m certain everyone that was there had a fantastic time. I can’t wait to do it again!
The thing I’m loving most about Popsicle right now is their variety. They really have something for everyone. From Banana and Rootbeer flavors for my husband, to Marvel Heroes and Hello Kitty for my kids, and even Sugar Free options for me. I can enjoy as many Popsicles I want and at less than 50 calories a pop, I haven’t undone my entire day of eating right. I love it!
I’m still not done enjoying my Popsicles. There will be several more posts from me in the next few months. While you’re waiting for the next post, be sure to interact with Popsicle in the following ways:
