Friends, sangria, and games ...oh my! My National Mom's Nite Out party!

*I hosted a National Mom's Nite Out Party!
I received a variety of products to host my party and received no monetary compensation.*


Like most other moms I rarely have time to go out and spend time with my friends, or even stay in and spend time together. The people behind National Mom's Nite Out wanted to give us an excuse to get together! National Mom's Nite Out was founded in 2008 as a nationally organized celebration of motherhood. It was started as a way to bring moms together physically and virtually to give them a well deserved night off! You can learn more about National Mom's Nite Out on their website HERE!

This past Thursday, May 7th, I hosted a National Mom's Nite Out party filled with friends, sangria, and games! Before guests got here I got everything ready for my party! I made some delicious Strawberry Peach Sangria (you can find the recipe below), got some goody bags ready, set up some snacks which all come in my party kit, and printed up labels inspired by MyPrintly using HP Photo Creations! 


Everything included in our awesome goody bags were things that came along in my party kit! Included was a deck of Bicycle Cocktail Party playing cards, Entemann's Little Bites, some HP photo paper, and a few more fun treats and information papers!   


If you haven't heard of MyPrintly you need to visit their website! MyPrintly is a blog dedicated to providing inspiration for DIY print projects! Their team offers new ideas, tips, and tools to help you create unique projects to celebrate life's special moments. I am super excited that I have a post coming in a few days all about MyPrintly and a few projects that I did inspired by their DIY ideas. For my Mom's Nite Out party I threw together some simple tags using HP Photo Creations just to add some fun and personality to the table!


We also unboxed the most recent GLOSSYBOX! GLOSSYBOX is a beauty subscription box delivered to you once a month. For $21 you get a beautifully wrapped box containing five deluxe sized beauty products. My guests and I loved seeing what was included in this month's subscription!

So once my guests arrived I had some activities planned like painting wine glasses and a few other things, but instead we ate snacks and chatted for a while and then played some board games. Once we starting having fun I never picked up my camera again so I apologize for the lack of photos! But! I do have one more thing for you... my Strawberry Peach Sangria Recipe! I caution you in advance though- limit how much you drink because it tastes like juice but contains mostly wine!


Ingredients:
Frozen Strawberries
Frozen Sliced Peaches
One bottle of White Wine
1 can Lemon Lime Soda
1 cup White Cranberry Peach Juice
1/2 cup Sugar

Directions:
Put a handful of frozen strawberries and a handful of sliced peaches into a pitcher and add in sugar. Pour in your can of lemon lime soda, then the entire bottle of wine, and the cup of juice. Once everything is added stir together. Refrigerate for two or three hours to allow flavors to combine! Enjoy! 


Thank you so much to the team behind National Mom's Nite Out and all of the amazing sponsors who provided everything in our party box! I had so much fun throwing a party to celebrate National Mom's Nite Out and can't wait to celebrate again next year!
