{Pinned} Italian Soda Bar

I'm participating in the Pinterest Challenge-Fall Edition hosted by Sheri, Katie, Ana & Erin.
You should get in on this!
I pinned this idea for a DIY Italian Soda Bar here.
Don't they look pretty and yummy?
I was planning on using this at our upcoming graduation party but thought it might be fun for my other daughter's slumber party too (and we could also see how it went over/worked).

My daughter filled in the instructions which were very straightforward: ice, bubbly water, flavored syrup and whipped cream with a straw. Easy peasy!
I was having trouble finding good flavored syrups around town so I ordered mine directly from Torani. They had so many to choose from but I stuck with fruity flavors and vanilla.
I ordered pomegranate, raspberry, lime, blood orange & vanilla for endless combinations.
I also got the pumps for the bottles, thinking it would be a lot easier for the girls to make their own sodas with less mess, that way.
 We used a write on wipe off markers to label their glasses (mason jars from this party).
The birthday girl getting in on the fun.
They were such a big hit, that I used the soda bar again at our family party and I will be re-using this idea at the grad party...maybe even at the next Italian Night?

I love, love, love this idea! And I love the presentation too; mason jars always give off a rustic sort of charm. You must be popular with your daughter's friends - I know I would've loved having this at a sleepover as a child (or now).

I love Italian Soda, but I never would have come up with this idea. Wonderful....and just the kind of thing kids (and grown ups) like to experiment with.

Just a question, tho. I've never had an Italian Soda with whipped cream added. It looks pretty, but I'm not sure how it would taste. Does it get mixed in or just there as a topping?

Fun presentation too!!

Oh what fun!!! I don't use sugar so I make a vanilla cream soda using club soda, stevia and vanilla. Soooooo gooood.

I am adding your blog to my blog roll so I can catch all your blog posts.
