Hosting a Summer Gathering with Dr Pepper
Happy summer!! We are well into summer and already halfway through June! HOW can this be? I guess time flies when you are having fun :)
Everyone who knows me knows that I have a pretty serious obsession with Dr Pepper. I totally agree with that sweet 104 year old lady who says her secret is three Dr Peppers a day! That will probably be me some day. So when Dr Pepper reached out and asked me to create some unique tips for using a new product, I couldn’t wait to get started and share with you all!
Summer is always the perfect time and setting to connect with your friends, and Dr Pepper is the perfect drink to have at your next summer gathering with friends! Today I’m sharing with you what I think are the three most important elements to hosting a summer gathering!
FOOD & BEVERAGE
Ok so maybe four if you count food and beverage separately. J While there are many important elements to hosting a party, I really feel that music, activities and what you’ll be serving as food and beverage are the top three.
MUSIC: You want to have music playing that matches the tone of the event and your guests. Music is a great way to set the tone for the event and also fill dead silences and keep a fun hum about the party that keeps it lively!
ACTIVITIES: Activities are great for summer parties that are during the day or earlier evening. It’s always nice to have a few options. If you are having a pool party or backyard party there are plenty of fun yard games like baggo and giant jenga. You could also have pool or backyard volleyball. It’s great to have some games where everyone doesn’t feel like they have to participate if they don’t want to but that you have some available to help disperse your guests and keep them active throughout the duration of the party.
FOOD & BEVERAGE: Well this one is a no brainer! There isn’t anything better than a summer burger and BBQ cookout. I always like to have some appetizers out when guests arrive too. I also think it’s great to have a wide variety of beverages available, but most importantly I always like to have Dr Pepper on hand because who doesn’t like Dr Pepper right? Dr Pepper is the perfect drink for summertime parties with friends!
After a quick trip to Walmart to gather supplies for my party and purchase my Dr Pepper, I got together with some of my girlfriends last week to enjoy some summer fun in the sun! Dr Pepper sent me some awesome prizes to use at my get together that YOU can have too when you purchase Dr Pepper at Walmart this summer!
