Now, I’m going to come out and tell you something that had better change your life from here on out.
If you are not having friends over to your home because it’s not perfect, you’re missing out on life. 
It doesn’t take much to host a get-together for real friends.  

Real friends are those people who don’t care that your sink has dishes in them, or you have an unfurnished living room.  
Real friends want to be with you, not be impressed by your home.
For my real friends, I can put together a frugal 15 minute beverage party and they’ll come right over. After 10 minutes, we’ll be laughing so hard and enjoying each others company. 
To put together a 15 minute beverage party you won’t go to the store and buy decorations. What you’ll do is gather up some of the nicest decor, and dishes you own.
Using said decor and dishes, you will arrange them to create a comfortable location for your guest to hangout. Just keep arranging and rearranging until the space looks nice to you.
Now, it’s time to create a simple beverage to sip on while you and your friends hang out.

You can serve any beverage but I prefer ones that let my friends get involved. This creamsicle float is perfect since it let’s your guest actually create their own.

Ginger or Blackberry Creamsicle Float

  • Canada Dry Blackberry Ginger Ale® or
    Original Canada Dry Ginger Ale®
  • Vanilla Flavored Syrup
  • Vanilla Ice-Cream
  • Whipped Cream 
  • 24 oz. cups 

I bought the Original Canada Dry Ginger Ale® at Walmart. I went looking for the Canada Dry Blackberry Ginger Ale®, but my store was out. 

The new flavor is only out for a limited time so I may have missed the chance to try it.

What is your hospitality style?
a) I have friends over all the time.
b) I prefer to go to friends houses.
c) I’m a social hermit.

  1. There are a lot of reasons to rent an inflatable bounce house. I think the best reason is that it is such a health toy. It can help you to cardiovascular exercise and promote creativity and social skills.

  2. While I love having people over I love being a social hermit at times. I love Canada Dry btw.

  3. How fun! I love to entertain, and once hosted an ice cream social for the entire neighborhood! It was lots of fun! You've just inspired me to do it again this summer!
