In the summer, I also love to keep a stack of bandanas around for fun napkins. They really brighten up the table at a cook out and give it a little extra panache. The cloth bandanas are super casual and little fancy at the same time...kind of like Delizza Desserts - easy and elegant. That's why it seemed perfect to decorate my Delizza Desserts boxes with a bandanas, so they're always barbeque ready whenever I need them. Of course, I couldn't stop there, I had to design some cute printables for the extra special summer cookout holidays - Memorial Day, Fourth of July, and Labor Day.
Freezer-to-Table No Bake Dessert for Summer
- Delizza Desserts Cream Puffs or Mini Eclairs, two boxes for a bountiful display
- One bandana
- Elastic, 2 feet
- Safety pin
Turn and create another 2-3 inch overlapping fold in the center of your bandana on the opposite side to create a smaller square.
Place your box of Delizza Desserts in the center of the folded bandana, so that the flat sides of the box are centered on the points of the bandana.
Tightly wrap your length of elastic around the top center of the box, creating an inch of overlap. Secure elastic with a safety pin. Make sure the elastic band is tight around the box and remove.
Gather the points of the bandana to the center of the Delizza Desserts box lid.
While carefully holding in place, lift the box up and place on top of your elastic band. The safety pin should be centered on one of the sides of the box.
Slowly slide the elastic band up around all four sides of the box to hold the bandana in place. (This is how I store my box in the freezer until I need it.)
Fold the sides of the bandana down to completely cover the elastic band. Pop the lid off and enjoy!
For a really full box, I like to add the contents of a second Delizza Desserts box. It's fun to mix in two different types like the cream puffs and mini eclairs for extra variety like I did in my photos. Plus, that gives a little something for everyone.
Isn't this so super cute?! For the the big summer holidays like Memorial Day, 4th of July, and Labor Day, you can use these summer printables to create a fun sign to pop into the box.
A couple months ago when Delizza Desserts approached me about trying their products and blogging about them. I was super excited because I love serving their cream puffs at baby showers and parties all winter long. They're a really easy way to expand a menu and add an elegant touch. I had never even thought about how perfect they'd be for summer parties, though. They're cool and refreshing (at least they are if you can't wait for them to completely thaw like me...so yummy!), and they keep you from having to cook in a hot kitchen.
I'm really excited to have Delizza Desserts as a new no-bake dessert in my entertaining arsenal for the summer, and I hope you will, too. In fact, I've got two chances for you to win a Delizza Dessert item of your choice.
