DIY: Bridal Shower Popsicle Party

diy bridal shower popsicle party

So after looking at all those yummy popsicles in the post this morning, we got to thinking about how fun it would be to make your own popsicles for a bridal shower or even a rehearsal dinner/picnic. So many flavor options – and if you make them yourself, you can add booze to them! Who wouldn’t love a booze popsicle. :) I tried making a few different kinds of popsicles – mixing some of my favorite flavors with vodka, prosecco and tequila and seeing how they turned out. I have to say they were pretty tasty and Jason definitely loved this project since he got to help taste test each of the 4 flavors I created. :) So,  I’m sharing my two favorite recipes I created and links to a few other yummy sounding recipces to try. I hope you’ll try one of those or create your own – the possibiles are endless! And if you create your own, I’d love to hear your flavor combination in the comments!

I found lots of interesting recipes while doing research for this DIY. Some I’m looking forward to trying are below: Cantaloupe and Kiwi Daiquiri Pops, 4th of July Cocktail Cooler Pops, Cherry Apple Whiskey Sour Pops, Cucumber Honeydew Margarita Pops

Don’t feel like making your own pops – or just not enough time? – although making them was pretty easy and didn’t take that long to make! :) Anyways, I found this cute idea below from Southern Living – a glass of Prosecco with a popsicle in it! Sounds tasty and summery to me.

So, what do you guys think? Anyone off to make some popsicles this weekend? What flavors are you excited to try? I’d love to hear them. I also made a watermelon mojito pop that was pretty tasty – and just remembered I have a few left in the freezer. Think I know what I’m having for a snack this afternoon! :)

  2. So cute!

  4. Brilliant idea. So trendy & fabulous!

  5. Lovely, I will take one of each please!

  6. I am so in love with the idea. My rehearsal dinner is next Thursday and I am going to make a ton for the dinner. Thanks for the idea!

  7. How long can they reasonably be left out? Right now the heat index is 110 in Fla, and Texas and Arkansas are experiencing temps over 100. Even with the AC going, the ice in my water is melting pretty quickly.

  8. How fun and perfect for a bridal shower!!

  9. HillJo – they are tiny so you can try all the flavors! :)

    Heather – I would put them out right as you are ready to serve them. I placed some in a bowl of ice to keep them from melting so fast which worked well, but since they do have alcohol in them, they do melt a bit faster than normal pops.

    Thanks everyone! Glad you like the idea. :)

  10. Cute idea! I love the concept of offering a variety of different flavors in little “bite-sized” pops!

  11. What a great and colorful idea! An amazing and tasty treat on hot summer days!

  12. Are there any recipes for non-alcoholic popsicles? They sound so yummy but I’m pregnant so no alcohol for me!

  13. Wow,
    This is a great Idea. I am the maid of honor in a wedding this summer. I think I will use this idea. Im sure the bride and groom will enjoy it along with there guests. I just love both ideas of making them small, but also making them a size to mix into the wine glasses

  14. Those popsicles look fantastic! Just what we need for the hot summers in Australia.
