School’s (almost) out for summer and that old song is playing in my head. To celebrate the beginning of summer and the end of another school year, I hosted a Fun in the Sun party this past weekend. I do believe it was the easiest and most fun party I’ve ever hosted and clean-up was a breeze.
Head to Sam’s Club for SunnyD!
A cool summer party calls for some fun, hot colors and you can’t get any hotter than orange and yellow! With those colors on my mind, I headed to Sam’s Club to grab a 24-pack of SunnyD! I walked up and down the beverage aisle twice before it dawned on me that SunnyD is in the refrigerated juice section. Duh! The best part? They were on Rollback at $5.38 instead of $5.98! I love a good deal!
I grabbed the 24-count pack. (Parties are so much easier when you don’t have to buy ice and cups!) Then I took a trip down memory lane as I remembered how much my son loved SunnyD when he was growing up. I bought it by the gallons! Now, I’m buying it for my grandkids. The kids grew up, but I stayed young! 🙂
Fun In The Sun Party
Want to know my #1 secret for hosting a great party? Keep it semi-homemade! I always make a few of my party foods and purchase the rest. You won’t be overworked and you’ll enjoy the party. Trust me! After you grab the SunnyD at Sam’s Club, head on over to the bakery and buy the brownies. You won’t regret it!
DIY Sun Craft
I made the cutest sun by tracing my hand (this would be a great craft for the kids, but there were none here when I was preparing the party) several times onto yellow cardstock. I cut them out and taped them to the back of a yellow paper plate. They don’t have to be perfect but make sure the pen marks are facing away from the back of the plate. You can draw faces or leave them blank.

Orange Coolers Recipe
Lemon Coolers were my favorite cookies when I was a little girl. I changed the recipe and added SunnyD to make Orange Cooler Cookies. They’re just as good as the lemon!
The grandkids love fruit, especially frozen grapes (me, too!), so a sun-shaped bright orange tray was just the thing for holding the fruit and cheesecake dip.
Helpful Hint: When planning an outdoor party, check the local Dollar store. You can find some pretty partyware and table covers without breaking the bank!
