September Home & Visiting Teaching

Fall is in the air and this gift is wearing all the right colors!  A small bag of delicious peach rings (the best tasting around!) is tucked in a cute little pouch along with a "Peach Delight" recipe card and, of course, the message from the September Ensign.  

Let your sisters know they're "just peachy" with this darling gift that is ready to give!

The September Home Teaching message is a must read!  The title is, "First Love, Then What?" by President Dieter F. Uchtdorf.  

We've packaged some of our favorite tootsie roll flavors - mango and green apple - in a brown paper sack (with a detailed top) and added a ribbon and tag so your gift is ready to go!  Enjoy visiting this month!

August Home and Visiting Teaching

"Families CAN be together forever" - is the message displayed on our darling Home Teaching Gift this August.  

We have made a darling wrap to go around a can of Pringles potato chips.  The message from the Ensign (written by President Henry B. Eyring entitled "The Hope of Eternal Family Love") is included.  A perfect gift to take to your home teaching families!  

Summer is on its way out, which brings everything "back to school" themed - notebooks included!  The August Visiting Teaching message is about "nurturing families" and we loved how the message pointed out that "one of the best ways to invite love and harmony into our homes is by speaking kindly to our family members."  

We decided to create a "family journal" notebook - in hopes that it can be left out for everyone in the family to see and use often.  Grab it anytime, write down something nice  about your child, spouse, or siblings.  

Read the journal often to uplift yourself and each other!  Comes with a laffy taffy candy as well as the full message from the Ensign.

One of our most favorite products, and one that makes us unique, is our awesome balloons! We have a huge selection of specialty balloons and can make a bouquet that will be sure to brighten someones day!!

One thing we use that makes our balloons extra special, is a product called hi-float. It is a liquid solution that we put into our balloons before blowing them up. It coats the inside of the balloon and then dries, helping keep the helium inside 25-30% longer than it normally would. A balloon without hi-float will stay up for a day or so. With hi-float, it will usually last 2-4 days (we have had some reports of balloons lasting for weeks!!). All of our bouquets come with hi-float, and it only costs a little extra for single balloons or per dozen.

Some of you may not know, but balloons are very sensitive to temperature. They should always be kept in a climate controlled area, otherwise float time will dramatically decrease. We recommend customers transport in a well air-conditioned car in the warm weather, and a heated car in cold weather. Also, mylar balloons tend to shrink a little in cold weather, and expand in warm weather. We fill the balloon with this in mind. If you take it out in the cold and it shrinks, it should return to normal size when it gets back into room temperature. Pearlized and metallic balloons usually have a shorter float time - even with hi-float - because of the material they are made of. 

The party girls helped me find out the gender of my last baby! They filled a 3 foot black balloon with the color (pink) confetti, and tied a cute collar onto it made of pink and blue tissue. We had pre-odered it and simply called and told them what color to do on the way home from our ultrasound. Of course I found out at the ultrasound, I couldn't wait!! But if you chose to find out with everyone else, have the ultrasound technician put the gender in an envelope for you and take it to the store. We will fill it for you and you can be surprised along with everyone else! We picked ours up and took it right to the gender reveal party, here is the footage:

Aside from specialty bouquets, we also do topiaries, arches, single balloons, by the dozen, and mylars. If you want something you don't see, ask us! We love learning new techniques and trends! 

Here are a few examples of the awesome things we can make for you! Remember you can always customize colors and prints! If you have questions on pricing or anything else, please call the store and talk to one of our balloon experts! 801-768-3549

Our July Visiting Teaching gift is full of red, white, and blue and is sure to be a hit!  The message is entitled "Potential for Parenthood" and talks about how we all have the potential to be a parent - in this earth or in the hereafter.  We have put together a patriotic gift that says, "Let's Celebrate being "TIED" to an Eternal Family" and we have tied a red licorice rope to the gift.  Pick this gift up for only $3.50 and get your visits done in style this month!  

 Our dear prophet, President Monson, has written this month's First Presidency Message - and it is amazing!  He has such great stories and quotes.  We've packaged up a bag of peanut butter filled pretzels, added the message from the Ensign, and a darling tag that reads, "Following the trail of the Pioneers will lead us closer to Christ."

June Home & Visiting Teaching Gifts

Summer is finally here and we have June's Visiting Teaching Gift ready to go so you can get those visits done without any extra work on your part.  The message from the Ensign is entitled, "Temple Ordinances and Covenants" and we loved one of the phrases so much we decided to put it on the front of our gift!

  It says "The Source is God.  Our access to that power is through our covenants with Him."  Includes approximately 1/3 lb of sanded lemon drops along with the full message from the June Ensign.  Enjoy!

We've taken a box of Kool Aid popsicles and made a darling cover tag that says, "By following our Mentor, Heavenly Father, we can receive aid throughout our lives."  The message from the June 2016 Ensign is included in this gift!
