I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Charmin. I received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for my participation. All content and thoughts are my own.
This has been a busy summer for events already in my house, and it seems like the summer has barely begun! Â May was packed with birthdays and graduations, and this weekend is July 4th, always the perfect weekend for a cookout. We love to entertain outside in the summer, because it is so relaxing to be outside enjoying the weather.
We improved our deck a few years ago, so it is an inviting outdoor entertaining area with tons of space, plants and seating. Â We enjoy having friends and family over while we grill some burgers or serve my husband’s favorite, barbequed chicken and salt potatoes.
When you are planning parties there are a few summer entertaining essentials you don’t want to forget – and for my family the top three are ice, plastic cups and toilet paper!
Ice -Â We have a standard refrigerator ice maker, and it doesn’t make nearly enough ice for a party. So we always get a few bags so we can have coolers full of cold drinks for our guests to beat the summer heat.
Plastic Cups -Â We go through so many cups at parties! Â It seems like everyone pours a drink, Â then sets it down somewhere, forgets about it and pours another. So we keep plenty of disposable cups on hand for a get-together.
Toilet Paper -Â Running out of toilet paper during a party is pretty embarrassing! But even worse than running out is ending up with clogged plumbing.Â We keep stocked up with Charmin toilet paper to make sure we don’t have to worry about bathroom problems.
After all, nothing puts a damper on a party faster than a clogged toilet! A few years ago our town finally got sewer lines, but unfortunately the sewers were not extended to our house. So we are still stuck with a septic system, which makes the clog-free and septic-safe guarantee from Charmin essential for us. Charmin is proud to carry Roto-Rooter’s stamp of approval for the second year, and it is used by more plumbers than any other brand, making it the expert’s choice.
