With all the cold weather we’ve been having, I am SO ready for spring! The warmer weather gives us an excuse to get out of the house and it brings so many opportunities to entertain. Last weekend I jump started the season with a small family get together, and today I’m sharing just a few of my ideas and Easter party solutions. I hope it gives you a little inspiration.
We always have DiGiorno pizza in our freezer, and it conveniently bakes up in less than 25 minutes, so it’s a perfect solution for a last minute get together.
You can find DiGiorno pizzas in your Walmart freezer. Most recently we tried the DIGIORNO® pizzeria!™ Supreme Speciale Pizza.
And the Easter season wouldn’t be complete without candy, would it? One item I love this time of year is jelly beans, especially SWEETART® Jelly Beans! (They are so yummy!)
Aside from the SWEETART® Jelly Beans, I found a great selection of other NESTLÉ Easter candies, including NESTLÉ® BUTTERFINGER® NestEggs, and NERDS® Bumpy Jelly Beans! Look for these and other seasonal NESTLÉ favorites at Walmart in the Easter aisle.
While shopping for the party I also picked up some Nestle Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough and some White Chip Lemon Cookie Dough. These are so perfect if you want to serve something freshly baked but don’t have the time to bake from scratch, and they taste so yummy!
To add just a little creativity to the mix, I took some of my cookies and topped with them with a little frosting and SWEETART® Jelly Beans. Check it out!
Aside from being a yummy treat, your SWEETARTS® Jelly Beans also double as a fun party or kitchen counter decoration for the spring season (while they last, that is). Here I’ve poured them up in to some champagne glasses. (I thought they went very nicely next to the little egg bouquets.)
And as if that’s not enough, the jelly beans also are perfect for a fun little guessing game for kids of all ages!
At some time or another I’m sure you’ve been at a party or event where you could guess how many beans are in the jar for a chance to win a prize.
I’ve always been a big fan of guessing games like this. It’s such a simple activity, and it’s something that everyone can participate in and have fun with. Here’s Noah examining the jar:
I looked around for a free printable that I could use for this activity and finally I decided it would be fun to make my own and offer it as a freebie to you!
Just fill a jar up with jelly beans. Then print out enough sheets for all your guests and have them fill it out with their names and their guesses. Then have them fold up their sheet and place it in a special box. After everyone’s had a chance to fill out a sheet, check out all the answers and find out who got the closest!
I even upped the ante with my printable game. Not only will your guests have to guess how many total beans are in the jar, but they will also have to guess the numbers for each color. (If one of the colors doesn’t exist in your jar, just tell your guests to mark it with a zero.
