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.

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!
