Summer Party & BBQ ideas!



1. Create festive party lanterns for any season. Count the bulbs on a strand of holiday lights and cut X's into the bottoms of the same numer of small cups. Then push a bulb through each cup's center and hang the string from a doorway or window. (idea from Real Simple)


2. Grill smores on the BBQ! Get waffle ice cream cones, fill with marshmallows, chocolate chips, bananas, strawberries, or any other thing you can think of, wrap in aluminum foil, and throw on the grill for a few minutes to melt. YUM!! (credit)


3. Make a squirt gun station. It is HOT. And DRY. And if you have kids coming, you need this. Between the BBQ, tiki lamps, fireworks, and the blazing sun, the kiddos (and adults) are sure to get hot. Cool them down and let them have a ton of fun! Simply fill a bucket or cooler with water, grab a 10 pack of squirt guns at the dollar store, and let the good times happen!

June Home and Visiting Teaching Gifts

Our June Visiting Teaching Gift is filled to the brim with cuteness! 



You will get a clear plastic cup filled with the message from the Ensign, a handful of opalescent frizzies, two flavored drink packets (ready to mix into water), a huckleberry candy stick, and of course ribbon and a little handmade love mixed in. We invite all sisters to "Sip in the Savior's Sweetness" as they read about another one of His divine attributes.







Our June Home Teaching Gift will not only make your job a little easier - you'll look good doing it, too! 



We've taken a theatre sized box of Good and Plenty's, wrapped it in a lime green chevron printed bag, added the message from the Ensign, and a tag that says, "Building GOOD relationships with your family will bring PLENTY of Eternal Blessings." The message from the Ensign is titled, "Families Can Be Together Forever"

DIY Bath Bombs - perfect for mom!

We found the cutest easy idea for mom for mothers day! Who doesn't want to take a relaxing bath?! Head over to A Pumpkin and a Princess blog for the full tutorial.


from the blog: 

This recipe is similar to the peppermint bath bombs I recently shared. For the lavender bath bombs I used the plastic ornament molds like last time. You can also use silicone molds like I did with the snowflake mold. Have fun and play around with different molds and sizes.  I’ve been a bath bomb making machine lately and I can’t wait to give these to friends and family this holiday season. I plan to individually wrap them in cellophane bags and personalized gift tags. Want to make your own bath bomb gifts this year? Here’s an easy recipe with Amazon affiliate links to the products I used.
Supplies:
1 cup baking soda
1/2 cup Citric Acid
1/2 cup cornstarch
3 tablespoons epsom salt
2 teaspoons Sweet Almond Oil
3/4 teaspoon water
15 drops Lavender Oil
a few tablespoons of dried Organic Lavender Flowers
plastic ornament or silicone mold
Step one: In a large bowl combine baking soda, citric acid, cornstarch, epsom salt and dried lavender.
Step two: In a small bowl combine almond oil, water, and essential oil.
Step three: pour wet mixture into dry mixture. Mix with a whisk until fully combined. Test mixture by pressing a handful together. If the mixture doesn’t hold LIGHTLY, with a spray bottle, spray with water once or twice. Avoid adding too much water or the mixture will fizz and not form in the mold correctly. Once it’s the right consistency press mixture into mold and allow to dry at least 2 hours before removing. Set bath bombs on a soft towel to dry overnight. 

When you are done - bring it in to the store and we will custom wrap your gift just for mom!
