Holy Guacamole! Pool Party Fiesta | Relief Society Night

Holy Guacamole! Pool Party Fiesta | Relief Society Night | NothingButCountry.com

Our end of Summer Break pool party happens every year. This year we decided to go with a fun mexican theme and have a taco salad bar and desserts. It was fun.

The ladies in the church signed up for various toppings we had on a list and brought them. We provided the meat and lemonade :)

Decorating was super easy!  Decorations I either had or collected from other ladies in the church. We then used the maragrita glasses on the tables to hold skittles or M&M’s. Mexican is such a fun theme. Lots of colors and these candies were perfect.

Tissue paper flowers were made and very inexpensive.

Zarepes were used for runners on our tables.

YUM!! DINNER!! IT WAS GOOD!!!

What was even better for us- we had a closet full of various plates from other activities over the years. Events when we were unable to use up all the plates. We saved money on our budget and used up all the left over colorful plates. SCORE!! I love being thrifty and never want to throw anything away or be wasteful. This was the perfect way to do that! Everyone got a kick out of it.

It was a fun night. We had mexican music playing over a speaker and lots of dancing, swimming and eating to be had. Great way to end the summer break!







Frozen Greek Yogurt Blueberry Bites

Frozen Greek Yogurt Blueberry Bites | NothingButCountry.com

These blueberry bites are SO GOOD!!! Healthy too and my kids think they are icecream :)  Even better!

Frozen Greek Yogurt Blueberry Bites | NothingButCountry.com

I mixed plain green yogurt with a little bit of lemon juice and splenda/honey/agave. Whatever sweetener you desire. I did not measure. I just added till I got the desired sweetness.

I used bamboo skewers. One to stab the fresh blueberry and dip in my greek yogurt mix and the other to help slide it off. I put them on a wax paper/cookie sheet.  I dipped each one.

Frozen Greek Yogurt Blueberry Bites | NothingButCountry.com

I filled up a full cookie sheet of dipped berries.

I then placed the cookie sheet into the deep freezer till they were completely frozen and I was able to lift off each blueberry.

To store them, I just placed them all into a ziptop baggie and put them back in the freezer. They are ready to pop in our mouth on a hot summer day!  They are very delicious. And very healthy too.

I used sand paper and roughed up the edges a little bit to make it look a bit more rustic to my liking.

I then covered the entire piece front, side and back with a few more coats of Mod Podge.
