We're staying home this year and planning a fun party. The little ones are excited and attempting to stay awake until midnight for the first time. This afternoon has been a flurry of crafting as they are creating hats for the kids, party favors and games.
I'm including one of our favorite non-alcoholic punch recipes. Fast, easy and the kids (adults, too) love it!
1 (2 ltr.) bottle of Strawberry Soda
8 oz. Pineapple Juice
1 can (16-oz.) frozen Orange Juice concentrate; thawed (I've also made this with fresh OJ)
1/2 gallon of slightly softened vanilla ice cream
Fresh Strawberries, Pineapple and Orange Slices for garnish
Mix the first four ingredients in a large punch bowl. Add garnish on the side of the bowl and float a few slices in the bowl. Voila!!
Happy New Year!
