Getting To Know You Questions with Tony's Pizza

“This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group™ and Tony’s Pizza, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #tonyspizzeria http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV.”
My absolute favorite weekend activity is to have a pizza and game night with friends. There are few things better than good friends, fun and good food. We especially love this kind of date night when we are just getting to know another couple. It is low pressure and with Tony's Pizza from Walmart, it is easy to throw together. 

My only complaint is that sometimes when you are playing intense boards games, all you really learn about a person is whether or not they are good at Risk. I created this fun set of 50 questions to go through, while we are eating to help us all get to know each other a little better. I have actually started leaving the questions on our dinner table for nightly conversations because I love learning more about my family and the jar is cute too! 

Question Jar

 You will need:
  • a glass jar with lid
  • a glass candlestick holder
  • wooden knob
  • hot glue
  • spray paint
  • a printout of the 50 "Getting To Know You" questions
  • chalkboard label and chalk
  • The Tony's 75 cents off two pizza coupon (while supplies last), to help you buy pizzas for your own get together. 


Print out the questions for your jar, found here. I have found that it works best to print the questions on card stock, so they are a little sturdier and last longer. Cut apart each of the questions and fold in half and add them to the jar.

Hot glue the wooden knob to the top of the jar lid. Spray paint both the lid and the candlestick in the color of your choice. My candlestick needed two coats of spray paint before it looked just the way I wanted it to.


Add the chalkboard label to the side of the jar. Prep the label by drawing all over it with chalk. Wipe it clean and add the title.


We usually pull out the questions as an ice breaker and as a good game to play while we eat, because not everyone has to be actively involved at once.

We used to buy Tony's Pizza all the time, but we haven't purchased them in awhile. I was pleasantly surprised at the new and delicious changes they have made to their recipe. The crust is crisper and the other ingredients are delicious as well. My 5-year-old ate half a pizza all by herself. The pizza was perfect for our game night – no running out just before our guests got there to pick up the pizza and no tipping a delivery man. It made the whole night go smoother to be prepared beforehand.


What games would you play while enjoying your Tony's Pizza?

What a fun jar! I've never spray painted glass, I didn't think it would work well. I'll have to give it a try. I love having pizza on hand, I've never tried Tony's Pizza, I'll have to give it a try.

That sounds like a great way to spend time with friends and family! One or two easy meal nights a week I think is great for families. We also do a pizza night! :)
