Ok- our kids love ranch dressing.  Seriously!  Do you know that Hidden Valley®  commercial where the kids are eating vegetables instead of ice cream?  Well- that is our kids when they have Ranch Dressing to dip it in.   They just eat so many raw veggies (every single kind!).

So, when Hidden Valley® called to ask if I wanted to throw a Ranch Day party, I was all for it!  We already love their products, so throwing a party was going to be E-A-S-Y and F-U-N!  I just invited over some neighbors/friends and their kids.  The kids played outside and snacked on veggies while we were able to talk, catch up and enjoy some great food!

Here are a few more pictures from our Garden Party to celebrate Ranch Day.  It was so much fun!
Oh- and I used this adorable tote bag to do my grocery shopping for the party (you can win one!)


Welcome to the party…

This is how I set the table.  I bought some great items at Target with my $75 gift card from Hidden Valley (you can win one, too!)  I picked up spring colored items in my favorite tones of blues and whites.


I picked up a fantastic little cupcake stand for around $14 and filled it with these $4 cupcake/treat boxes

I filled the little boxes with… RANCH DRESSING for easy dipping!

I served some Strawberry Tea in my new mason jars with these cute blue/white straws (you can win the jars & straws, too!)
I used my favorite napkin rings,  given to me as a gift from my Aunt,  years ago.  I love them and use them whenever I can. 

For dinner, I served these Ranch Sliders and a few other pasta dishes, using the Ranch packets from Hidden Valley.
