End of Summer Burgers Recipe & Barbecue Invitations

August 7th, 2010

With Labor Day a month away, it’s already time to think about sending out invitations to a barbecue, an end of summer party or a back to school party.

Ranch Cheeseburgers on the Grill

There’s nothing like a barbecue to enjoy the outdoors and all your favorite summer foods before the cooler temperatures of fall force us to once again cook on our stove instead of the barbie.

Hamburgers are a favorite of young and old alike, and a great change on an old favorite is to serve Ranch Hamburgers. They don’t take any longer to make, but the unexpected added flavor will make this recipe a hit.

Baby Shower Invitations and Games

August 5th, 2010

Are you hosting a baby shower for a mommy-to-be? We’ve got some fabulous baby shower invitations for girls, boys or unisex. If you are looking for some ideas on how to keep your guests entertained, try a few of these baby shower games!

The Tray Memory Game:

  • Before the game starts you put 15 to 20 small items associated with babies, on a tray. These can be a bottle, pacifier, baby sock, safety pin, etc.
  • Give each of your guests a piece of paper and a pencil to write down their answers.
  • To start the game bring the tray into the room and place it where all the guests can see it but tell them not to touch, leave the tray in that position for one minute and tell the guests to memorize the items that are on the tray, then remove the tray from the room and give the guests five minutes to write down on pieces of paper what all the items were.
  • The guest who gets the most items correct is the winner.

Company Party Invitations and Icebreaker Games

August 5th, 2010

Here are a couple of fun activities that will keep guests entertained at a company party, summer family barbeque, picnic or office party:

Ice Breaker Game – Sticker Stalker: All you need to play are stickers and your guests.  How to play:

  • The object of this game is to get rid of all your stickers by sticking them on the other guests (One sticker per guest).
  • When guests begin to arrive at your house or office, give each guest a pack/sheet of 10 stickers. However, if the guest you are “stickering” catches you, he/she gets to stick one of his/her stickers on you.
  •  If you are “caught”, you must temporarily take your sticker back, and you can try to sticker that same person later (at your own risk). But if someone falsely accuses you of “stickering” him/her, then you can automatically put one of your stickers on that person.
  • The first one to get rid of all 10 of their original stickers is the winner!
