summer party idea ~ sangria contest


Over the weekend, J & her roommates hosted a sangria competition. It was super fun & we’re pretty sure we want to turn this into an annual thing, maybe bi-annual, maybe once a month…

Anyway, call all the girls & have them each bring over a pitcher of sangria. Get very creative with the ingredients to make sure your pitcher stands out from the crowd!

J whipped up an amazing batch of pineapple mojito sangria. It was such a great recipe & will definitely be made again.

C & S made grapefruit sangria and spicy white jalepeno sangria.


To showcase all of these great recipes, we used corks & small pieces of paper. Simply cut a small dent into the top of a cork to create a standing nametag!


For snacks, we kept with the fruity sangria theme. Instead of making a big messy bowl of fruit salad, we put together some fruit skewers. Easy to eat & super cute.



We also had some cheese & crackers, chocolate covered almonds, and chocolate chip banana bread. Yum!

To set up, place the pitchers around the room with their cork nametags.

After a while, we passed out cards for our guests to write down their vote for best sangria. It ended up being a tie between two of them! All of the recipes were just too good to have a clear winner.
