DiGiorno House Party and My First Giveaway!

I couldn't believe it when I got the confirmation email from House Party saying I had been picked to host another event! I thought that it would be a while since I had just done one in January. Nevertheless, I was picked, and the party happened Saturday.

It was sponsored by DiGiorno pizza. They were spreading the news of their new combo: pizza and breadsticks. The theme along with the pizza was basketball. March Madness. I received my party kit in the mail on Monday and was excited to open it and see all the goodies!

There was an apron, a pizza cutter, a clip magnet, some coasters, a finger ball game, some beaded necklaces, and a packet of coupons. There were some FREE coupons to get pizza for the guests to eat at the party and some $4.00 off coupons to giveaway as party favors. So cool!

Troy put on the apron and "man"ned the oven. He did a great job and the apron looked good on him. However, he was only in it for 10 minutes. Simon pulled the easel on top of himself and busted his nose. Troy, being the first to arrive on the scene, picked Simon up and thus received an out pouring of blood on the front of the apron. So the apron didn't get any wear at the party but it has been washed and the blood did come out. Simon's nose is fine and unfortunately at 16months old he has already had his fair share of bloodied noses.

Here is Simon playing basketball before his accident.

Here is Troy before the accident.

We ate pizza, bread sticks, salad and of course there were desserts! My friend Amanda made the best one in my opinion. It was some kind of smores thing. I will have to get her to share the recipe and then I will share with ya'll. I had eaten DiGiorno's before but I hadn't had the breadsticks. They were great! I heard other guests say they were good too. The pizza is a medium size and I would say it should feed 4 and there were about 10 breadsticks (I think) along with a marinara sauce for dipping.

Some watched basketball, honestly, I wasn't even aware of who was playing. Later we played Phase 10 with dice. That is a great game, by the way. It was a really fun night, just hanging out with friends! Plus I was able to giveaway stuff...for FREE!!! How fun is that? I gave every guest a $4.00 off coupon and I still had some left over to give away as door prizes. I gave away 1 of the leftover FREE coupons and the clip magnet as well. The pizza cutter worked awesomely, so I just couldn't give that away!

  9. My favorite brand of pizza are the cheapy Totino's cheese pizzas. I love to bake them a few minutes longer than the directions say to because it makes them extra crispy on the bottom. Yummy!

  13. I don't really have a favorite brand. My family likes to mix it up some which is good since brand loyalty gets in the way of a good sale. This week we have CPK pizzas in our freezer. The week before that it was Tombstone and before that Red Baron. I buy 2-3 at a time so pricing matters. We have had Digornio and do like it as well. Although I have not tried the with breadstick versions. Hopefully they will have a good sale going so I can maybe go pick up a dipping sauce and try the breadsticks.

  14. we love red baron original pepperoni the best in my house but i am willing to experiment lol
    we just had the maxwell house /velveeta cheese party at my house- i love houseparty!!!

  15. My favorite is Papa John's pepperoni pizza. Thanks for sharing these coupons!


  16. I love Papa Johns! scg00387 at yahoo dot com

  17. Hmm, as far as national chains go, Papa John's supreme pizza is pretty tasty.

  18. I like Papa Johns cheese pizza!! Nothing beats Pizza Hut's stuffed crust though for me.

  19. We like just about any frozen pizza! I guess if I had to pick it would be DIGIORNO or RED BARON. Thanks for the chance to win.

  20. Our favorite frozen brand is Digiorno, and we like the stuffed crust ones best! yummy! As far as ordering pizza, I think we'd go with PizzaHut :) -Liz,
