Fresh Taste of Summer Party

Have you ever heard of House Party?

It is so awesome, you should definitely check it out. Basically, you apply to host different types of parties, and if you are chosen it is like you hit the jackpot.

I was lucky enough to be chosen for the Ball Fresh Taste of Summer Canning Party! They sent me everything I needed to can except for the vegetables. I received a 26 pound box full of all kinds of goodies. I added it all up and it was over $200 worth of stuff!!!! I was so impressed with it, and I would highly encourage you to apply to host a party.

First thing was to look at the handy dandy flip chart they gave me!

That is my sister, Kimery! Check out that apron...yes, that is a pearl necklace on it!!

Here is Kande and my Mom!
We finally had to get down to business...here is Misty in action!
Ohhhh, doesn't the finished product look delicious? I sure hope I get enough stuff from my garden to can me up some salsa!?!

Everyone got bags to take home. Not just bags though, they were filled with coupons, pectin, and jars of salsa and pepper jelly!
I even got a bag, and I am so using it as an Aldi bag!!! I had such a good time and I hope everyone that attended did too!

Thanks so much, Ball! The party was a blast!

Debbie,

You can go to www.houseparty.com to apply to host different house parties. I am not sure when/if they will have another ball party again. It is always changing.

I feel bad, I had no idea you were a canner. I would have invited you to the party. I tried to find people I knew canned/had a garden...I wish I would have known!! You are more than welcome to use any of the stuff I got if you want...
