BBQ season is here, and I'm so beyond excited to partnering with one of my favorite brands EVER to be kicking off the seasonal celebrations, starting with our first BBQ of the year!
Throughout the summer, we'll be hosting 3 seasonal parties with Coca-Cola® to help you get inspired for your own shareable moments and fun celebrations!
And even more exciting, YOU will be able to join in the fun, and be eligible to win a “Share a Coke” prize pack, consisting of vouchers for two round-trip flights on United Airlines to anywhere in the continental U.S., Caribbean, Mexico, Central America or Hawaii and a $500 Visa gift card ($1,700 Approximate Retail Value)!!
Back by popular demand, Coca-Cola will swap out its iconic logo for 1,000 of the most popular names in the country. And for the first time ever in the U.S., will offer an eCommerce site, through which fans can personalize and purchase iconic eight-ounce glass “Share a Coke” bottles.
How cool is that?! It’s never been easier and more exciting to Share a Coke with family, friends, party guests or colleagues for celebrating life’s most sharable moments!
BBQ Party Ideas with Coca-Cola®Coca-Cola® is my drink of choice. On any occasion. I grew up with it and it's an integral part of any party or celebration we share in our home. So needless to day, I'm beyond delighted to be partnering with them for our summer parties this year!
My kids and family loved seeing their names on the coke bottles, and it really made our party that much more special! Plus, the bottles are the perfect size for parties, and no more issues getting confused with finding your own drink ;)
Once empty, the cute bottles (they have a vintage look, don't they?!) looks super adorable as flower vases to jazz up any table or party space.
BBQ Party Food with Coca-Cola®
Nothing screams more "BBQ" to me, than a nice hunk of Coca-Cola pulled pork!
So I decided to create a self-service DIY station with sides, sauces and salads to accompany the delicious barbecue pork. It also meant the guests could get stuck in, leaving the hostess free to enjoy the day. And a coke or two ;)
It was a total hit with all the family, and made for super easy entertaining too, as it can all be prepped in advance.
The pulled pork recipe also can be prepared 2 days in advance, and barbecued on the day of the party.
Think of the smoky, sweet and sticky flavors, contrasted with the soft bread, fresh and crispy, tangy sides! Super YUM is an understatement!
Hope you enjoy and feel inspired for your own summer BBQ celebrations!
