Summer Celebrations: Beers and Baseball - A Free Party Suite


I've got a fun one for you today! A freebie and a reason to celebrate. The reason? There is none - which is the prefect reason to celebrate!

I hesitate to say this but, summer is starting to threaten to wind-down here in the northern hemisphere. The kids are back in school (or close to it) and events like "apple picking" and "turkey trot" have appeared on my calendar. Even more reason to have one last hurrah - a lingering, late night in the yard with friends or a mid-day treat with kids and splashing pools of water.

I've got a suite of invites for any such party - customize as you like and apply to any festivity. Have a birthday party, a baseball game "championship", a home brew tasting, a homemade root beer & floats social, a beer and brats cook-off...whatever you like.

Print out a few invites, pop on a few mailing labels and send away. In the meantime cook up some home brews or treats, slap on some custom labels, turn up the music and enjoy some laughter with friends. Use the labels for easily identifiable beverages, on favor bags or boxes filled with popcorn or peanuts, cracker jacks, or anything else your heart desires.

Heck, throw caution to the wind and put a label on a bottle of soad and another on a bag of peanuts - tie together with twine and pour the peanuts in the soda-pop for a Southern-style treat. Serve with great blues music, better barbecue and a game of horseshoes.

Really wonderful job with these, Tricia. I'd have to change the colors (we're a Mets household, sadly, so the colors are blue and orange), but I think these would be a huge hit. Maybe for my brother's birthday next year...
