Dr Pepper & College Football...My 2 Loves!

If you follow my blog...or any of my social media'll know I not only love college football but I also love Dr Pepper.  Combine the 2? Greatest thing of my life.  Dr Pepper is an official sponsor of the College Football Playoff and the National Championship Trophy is presented by Dr Pepper, so it's only natural that you enjoy them together. College football kicks off this Saturday, so here's a fun table you can put together and party with all your friends & family.
I went to Walmart to grab some of my favorite flavors like Dr Pepper TEN & Dr Pepper Cherry and obviously original Dr Pepper.  I also grab a few fun snacks like pretzel bites, popcorn & Cheez-its.
I laid down black & white striped paper and layered green moss over it. I used a small wood pallet as the backdrop and threw on some pom-poms, a football & colored pennants to represent some of the teams playing in the games.
To make Saturdays even more fun, I created 2 different sheets. One you can list all the games being played & how they played last week, as a quick reference. 
The other you can have everyone predict the winners & losers of each game being played.  I'm super competitive so I'm really excited for this one!
Download them here & here.
You could win $20,000 in college tuition from Dr Pepper. Be sure to check out for more information on how you can #WinTuition! What would you/your child do with that tuition money?

Summer Forever Party Details

Remember that outdoor party I shared a few weeks ago? I had to share some more gorgeous pictures and a few details about the decorations for it.  All photography was done by Trisha from Trisha Shelley Photography who kindly hopped in last minute to capture all the goodness!
Our table was an awesome table my brother made out of pallets & I've used it for my Captain America party as well.  I draped a piece of buffalo check fabric in the center.  The back was lined with a garland of air-filled water balloons and two kraft paper banners that read "summer forever".
For the floats, I had vanilla ice cream pre-scooped into adorable bottles from Petite Party Studio.  I scooped ice cream with a cookie dough scoop onto a cookie tray, let it freeze and then spooned them into the bottles. Tie a straw and spoon with bakers twine and it's a mess free float station!
Everyone loved mixing their own popcorn mixes and enjoying them on blankets on the grass.  The only thing that could've made it more perfect was enjoying an outdoor movie!
The glass containers for mixings are from Hobby Lobby and the little treat containers for favors were also from Petite Party Studio.

Anyone who knows me, knows I love a good party & I love some Dr Pepper®! School is starting in a few weeks, but this hot Arizona heat definitely reminds us that summer still isn't technically over.  So I decided to host a party to celebrate that there's still summertime left to be enjoyed! You can "Share the Funshine" too, by entering to win a Walmart e-giftcard here! After I planned my party, I stopped by Walmart and grabbing everything I needed for a delicious and fun party.

I grabbed 2 giant bags M&M's® Peanut, & M&M's® Plain some Skittles®,  Starburst® Minis Unwrapped, Dr Pepper®, Dr Pepper® Cherry, mini unwrapped SNICKERS®, some SNICKERS® ice cream bars, and of course Pedigree Dentastix® so even the pup can join in on the summer fun!

My party had 2 elements, a Make Your Own Popcorn Mix and an Ice Cream Bar/Float station.
There was plenty of Dr Pepper®  and Dr Pepper® Cherry for floats, and a choice of ice cream bars in a bucket of ice.
The popcorn mix had butter, kettle corn and caramel corn popcorn guest could put in bags and then choose their own add-ins. There were M&M's® Peanut, & M&M's® PlainStarburst® Minis Unwrapped, SNICKERS® Minis Unwrapped, chocolate mint candies, cinnamon gummies, & mini chocolate chip cookies.
