Recently, I was selected by Foodbuzz Tastemaker Program, along with Electrolux to host a slumber party for my daughter and her friends, complete with cheese pizza dip!, and share it with my readers.
Did you know that it’s Ovarian Cancer Research Month? Electrolux is donating $200 to Ovarian Cancer Research Fund for every washer/dryer pair purchased. Also, Kelly Ripa has partnered with Electrolux to bring you Kelly’s Virtual Sleepover.
Please join the Sleepover at kelly-confidential.com. When you do, Electrolux will donate $1 to OCRF and participants are entered for a chance to win a new Perfect SteamTM washer and dryer from Electrolux.
This pair offers the most capacity to help you shoulder any load, plus, with just 15 minutes to wash and 14 to dry, the laundry is done in no time.
It’s a wonderful cause, and only takes a second to join!
The Sleepover Menu
Stuffed Pretzel Bites
Cheese Pizza Dip
But I promise it won’t make it that far.
Cherries with stems, in cherry juice
Pour about 2 tbsp cherry juice in a glass filled with ice. Pour 1/2 can Sprite over the cherry juice and garnish with a cherry.
My good friend Lishia also came to hang out.
She has a wonderful talent – she does nail art!
Everybody got pedi’s….
Then it was movie time!
It was a great sleepover! We had delicious food, had fun being silly girls, and of course, getting our nails done.
If I could offer any sleepover tips:
- Be prepared – when inviting guests request they bring things that will make it easy on everybody – sleeping bags, pillows, etc.
- Have plenty of food! Plan recipes ahead of time and have a good variety of snacks. Offer a sweet snack (they will want them), but limit them. Lots of sugar will disrupt their sleep and they will wake up extra hungry (maybe extra early too!) because it will cause a dip in blood sugar.
- Make your expectations clear up front – about when messes are made, who will be expected to clean them up, etc.
- Plan for breakfast. Since we made several recipes for dinner, I made an early morning trip to Panera Bread for a big box of assorted bagels and a few different cream cheeses. It made for an easy morning when everyone was packing up.
Thank you Foodbuzz and Electrolux!
