sweet soda



Some asked how to make the cake jars from my birthday blog post and my sister's friend, Emily, is going to get it to me...
For now I do have the recipe to make Italian Soda.
You need some Sparkling Natural Mineral water, Torani Syrup flavors (our favorites were peach, mango, raspberry... basically the fruity ones) & some whipped cream. Plus, you'll definitely need striped straws.
Fill cup with ice. Add 3/4 cup with Sparkling Mineral Water then 1/4 flavoring and top with whipped cream. Bottoms up!

Here are the simple favors I made for my birthday party guests. Just sewed streamers along the bag and added a flag tag. Inside were kisses from me. paper for tags: quilts

Since I had the streamers out I made some ruffle streamers... it was so windy before the party that we didn't hang much stuff up but I will take wind over snow or rain any day.

For those of you who asked... I am going to get a recipe for the cake jars from my sister's friend Emily.

Happy Friday! I hope you eat, drink & make something yummy this weekend!

After seeing your post I was inspired and went out and bought everything we needed to make italian sodas. We made a bunch this weekend, and they turned out wonderful. I'm even thinking of making a soda bar for my daughter's 1st birthday party! Thanks for sharing!
