Sun’s out, fun’s out! That’s a call for you to tidy up the backyard, break out the pool toys, and fire up the grill because your friends are on their way over! Switch up your next backyard party by setting up a bunch of carnival games for your friends to play and compete for prizes. These games can go on all day long in between the usual barbecuing and pool playing.
You don’t need an elaborate, expensive set up for the games and in fact, you can DIY them all on your own with your empty Stella Rosa and Bodega Sangria wine bottles! Chances are you or your guests have the other equipment to use and if not, they’re neither expensive nor hard to find at a store near you.
Games like ring toss and lawn bowling are always a draw. We recommend using standard-sized wine bottles (750ml) for ring toss but for bowling, go with Stella Rosa Aluminums.
Equally exciting is the aim and fire type of game where players use water guns to aim and fire away at ping-pong balls that are sitting on top of Stella Rosa Minis.
Set up a guessing booth off to the side of a table where your friends can guess how many corks are sitting inside of a jar, just by looking at it.
As far as food goes, keep the grill hot with the usual burgers, dogs, and veggies. Put out a variety of fresh fruits for friends to snack on and add to their drink of choice (Stella Rosa or Bodega Sangria, which you can purchase at your local store or from San Antonio Winery), and offer extra carnival-approved treats like popcorn to pair with your Stella Rosa, wine ice cream, and cotton candy!
There is so much fun to be had at a backyard party like this, you’ll see! Make sure we, Stella Rosa, see it too by using #StellaRosa and #Stellabrate on your Instagram photos!
