Spiked Strawberry Banana Icebox Cake

For our 4th of July party, I wanted to serve a dessert that was easy to make, pretty, and boozy. This spiked Strawberry Banana Icebox cake hit all those marks. It helps too that you store it in your freezer so you can make ahead and do not have to worry about it before the party starts.

Spiked Strawberry Banana Icebox Cake

Ingredients:

1 Box of Instant Banana Pudding Mix

1/2 Cup Jackson Morgan Southern Cream in Banana Pudding, cold

1 1/2 Cup Milk, cold

1 Can Sweetened Condensed Milk

2 (8 ounces) Containers Frozen Whipped Topping, thawed

4 Tablespoons Powdered Sugar

8 oz Block Cream Cheese, softened

1 Box Graham Crackers

2 Cups Strawberries, sliced

4 Bananas, sliced

Directions:

Gather all of your ingredients and a 9-inch square freezer safe dish. Make the pudding first according to the instructions on the box, but substitute 1/2 cup of Jackson Morgan Southern Cream in banana pudding for the milk. Mix the remainder of the milk with the pudding mix until a pudding consistency forms, set aside. You can add more Jackson Morgan instead of milk if you prefer for it to be boozier.

Next using an electric mixer fitted with a flat beater, beat sweetened condensed milk and cream cheese on medium-low speed until smooth. Using a rubber spatula, fold in one 8 ounce thawed whipped topping container into the cream cheese condensed milk mixture. Then add in the pudding and mix until well combined.

To assemble the icebox cake, layer the bottom of the dish with graham crackers, you may need to break a few graham crackers to cover the bottom of the dish fully. Then add a layer of sliced bananas and sliced strawberries. Pour 1/3 of the cream cheese condensed milk pudding mixture over the top of the fruit. Repeat until you fill your dish to the top. Put the icebox cake in the freezer while you make the whipped topping icing.

Using an electric mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, whisk powdered sugar and remaining thawed whipped topping together until smooth on medium-low speed. Remove cake from freezer, spread a small layer of whipped topping icing across the top of the cake. With the remaining icing, add to a pipping bag and cut a small opening in the bag. Carefully pipe straight lines of whipped topping icing across the top of the cake. Then add sliced strawberries between the lines. Freeze overnight. Remove from freezer for 30 minutes before enjoying.

Notes:

You may have leftover pudding, which you can use to make mini boozy banana puddings with vanilla wafers.

Cheers!

4th of July Party Favors

Happy Wednesday! For our 4th of July party, I wanted a festive party favor for guests to take home after the party. No matter how old you are, everyone loves a party favor.

I found striped treat cups and filled with red paper shred. I linked a few similar options below. I added confetti poppers, pop-its, red striped sunglasses, and a mini bottle of Jackson Morgan Southern Cream. These favors were low cost and easy to put together.

What are your favorite party favors for the 4th of July?

4th of July Party

Can y’all believe 4th of July is next week? After Memorial Day, it feels like we blink and it is time for tailgates and back to school. Summer is going by too quickly! To celebrate the 4th, I threw a party with an Americana theme.

Color Scheme

For this party, I wanted a casual red, white, and navy color scheme. My mom gifted us this antique tobacco basket from a popular antique store in my hometown, Fayetteville, Tennessee. This basket is the perfect spot to hang a festive flag garland for summer parties.

Menu

In the summer, I tend to drift towards simple meals when hosting. I called my friends at Martin’s Bbq, one of my beloved spots for bbq in Nashville, for catering. Martin's tasty ribs, potato salad, slaw, baked beans, and cornbread cakes were the main items I served for this gathering. I added watermelon on a popsicle stick, fruit, and sweet tea. I used a small star cookie cutter to cut the honeydew melon to keep with the star theme. I served a boozy strawberry banana icebox cake (recipe coming soon) for dessert along with a few assorted cookies and popsicles.

Tablescape

For the table, I incorporated a navy star table throw (linked below). Galvanized chargers paired with striped dinner plates and flag appetizer plates, coordinated with the red flatware perfectly. Mason jars seemed like the ideal drinkware choice, especially with a red stripe paper straw. I found a matching navy star napkin to complete the tablescape. I served the food in galvanized and red enamelware dishes, which are shatterproof and excellent for easy summer hosting. White hydrangeas are my go to flower arrangement year round, for this party, I added burlap flags.

Stay tuned for more recipes from this festive party.

Outdoor Entertaining Essentials

When entertaining outside, keep it simple. If possible, try to use melamine plates and glassware. These plates are more elevated than paper plates and will keep you at ease in case guests drop their plates when enjoying dinner. Use items you already have such as a potted herb plant and gardening boots for decor. Outdoor rugs are a great way to cozy up the space and make the dinner party feel chicer.

Have a beverage dispenser filled with water ready to go since guests will be outside. I like to add a few lemon slices for a citrus flavor. This handy bar cart doubles as an ice bucket, which keeps drinks cool even in the summer heat. I like to keep a few bar towels close by for easy clean up for spills.

For the menu, add items that you can quickly prep ahead so you can enjoy your time with guests. I love to serve fresh fruit, cheese tray, boozy ice cream cake, pre-mixed cocktails, etc. If you are serving items that require garnishes such as burgers, pre-slice and have ready to go. S’mores is always a favorite summer treat, I put together a tray with the ingredients ahead of time so it is ready to go once everyone is ready for the fire pit.

Cheers!

Outdoor Brunch Bar Cart

Did you catch our outdoor brunch party last week? It was fun to plan with two of my favorite bloggers, The Nashville Mom and Certified Celebrator. I am sharing our outdoor bar cart from our brunch party today.

When I first saw Nicole Regan of Cedar and Rush style this pretty bar cart, I immediately ordered it. It is a great piece for outdoor entertaining and the party bucket part will hold several bottles of Jackson Morgan Southern Cream. To keep with the causal theme of our outdoor brunch, I used a galvanized drink dispenser stand and mason jar cups to serve drinks. Green paper straws were a must for cocktails. These fun hand towels by South of Libbie were a great addition to keep hands clean while making cocktails. I used one of the extra melamine lettuce cups to display a small flower arrangement.

I placed a mint plant on the bottom part of the bar cart for guests to garnish their drinks. The bar station was surrounded by planters filled with my favorite herbs and flowers. I tucked my green rain boots next to the bar area since they matched the garden theme party too. Ruthie and Oliver Letterpress made this adorable “Drink up y’all” sign that is fun for any bar area. To cozy up the bar, I used a round woven outdoor rug.

Stay tuned for more posts from this fun party on The Sip. If you are in Nashville on May 8th we are hosting a Mother’s Day shopping event at Draper James from 5:30-7:30 pm, bring your mama and come sip, shop, and enjoy a bloom bar with us.

Mother's Day Party Favors

I am loving all the fun details from our outdoor Mother’s Day brunch party. I shared a post about the table earlier this week, today I am sharing the party favors.

Brittany of Certified Celebrator, who is the queen of small gifts for intentionally celebrating others created these festive gift boxes. She included flower seed packets in each box and tied with ribbon for an easy party favor. On the outside of the box, she attached a "Happy Mother's Day" tag. Check out her blog for more favors and gift ideas.

You could easily include your favorite herb drink garnish seeds such as mint, rosemary, basil, thyme, etc. along with a bottle of Jackson Morgan Southern Cream. I also love the idea of attaching the seed packet to a bottle with a gardening tool.

Stay tuned for more details from this party on The Sip.
