1 large can frozen pink lemonade

1 large can pineapple juice

1 cup tea, put one family size or 2 sm bags is 1 cup boiling water; steep for 10 mins and remove bags

1 qt of gingerale

1 or 2 large packages of frozen strawberries

Pour all ingredients in a punch bowl.

It is yummy! ENJOY!!!

Jenga Guest Book

Jenga guestbox

This is the most Fantab idea from Divine Party Concepts, I have seen in Ages!!

Jenga Guest Book!

In college we had a Jenga game, which I still have and played a few months ago!! That was a “drinking” version! Why or How I have not thought of using it for a guest book! It is genius! In place of the boring book that no one picks up again, ask all your guest to write a message! You could do this for a wedding, shower, even a baby shower with a game theme could have words of wisdom for mom and dad or what about the teenage child!! LOVE, love, love….

Now, who is getting married? Gotta get someone to do this!!

I hope I can remember this for when Jack gets older!! Melissa got geyser tubes, instant snow mix, and slime mix from Steve Spangler Science.
