Holiday Party Prep with Safeway ($50 Giveaway) #SafewayHoliday



Congrats to Brittany! You won the $50 Safeway gift card.


Is anyone else exhausted yet? I can’t believe it’s New Year’s Eve already! This holiday season, heck this year has gone by so fast!

There is just one more celebration to survive before life goes back to normal in January. Since I am basically brain dead at this point, I am super thankful that Safeway is helping with holiday ideas, tips and savings.

With fun cocktail and dessert pairings, in-store promotions, a beverage calculator, and even awesome ideas on Pinterest, Safeway has really come through to help with holiday celebrations.

The Safeway website has some great Sugar and Spice recipe ideas to help get your party started.  Quite a few dessert and cocktail pairings caught my eye, I would love to try the Pomegranate Rickey, my grandma makes pomegranate jelly every year so I am a sucker for anything pomegranate!

The Chocolate Truffle Cookies with Sea Salt also looked awesome but after a long season of celebrating (and eating way to many super rich sweets) I decided to go for a simpler recipe.



The boys and I decided to try the Sugar Cookie Pops recipe. It was a big hit and super easy to make. We experimented with various sprinkles we had on hand but I know this would be a great idea to color coordinate for various holidays and birthday parties.
