Congratulations Graduates!

We found the perfect money lei
for graduation and thought
we'd share how to make it:

Items needed:  2 spools of black ribbon (12 feet each),
$100 (in dollar bills), and black paper.

 

Step 1:  Start folding each dollar bill like a fan, as shown below.

 

Step 2:  Cut the black paper the same size as a dollar bill.
You will need 100 pieces cut.
Fold them the same as each dollar bill.

 

Step 3:  You will need 2 dollar fans to make 1 circle.
The same goes for the paper fans.

 

Step 4:  Take each spool of ribbon and unravel them.  Place one end of each spool together and form a loop.
You will then sew the loop in place.  End result:  a loop with 2 long strands of ribbon coming down.

 

Step 5:  Now that you have a loop with 2 ends, you can get started tying on the money and paper fans.
Keep in mind that there are 2 ends of ribbon, but you will use them to tie, so in the end, there will only be 1 strand.

 

Step 6:  Alternate tying the paper and money
using both strands of ribbon,
and soon you will have the completed lei!


If you have any questions, we'd love to help!  Just contact us at our store location for more information.

Wishing all the graduates out there the best!

Swim Suit Season is Upon Us...


...and you all know what that means:  NO MORE COOKIES!  So, how are we supposed to survive through all of those horrible cravings but still look good?  We have the perfect solution:  Cookie Dough Taffy!   Let's compare the two:  A regular cookie has about 120 calories, 5.8 grams of fat, 2.8 grams of saturated fat and about 18.4 grams of carbs.  Our delicious cookie dough taffy has about 22 calories, .28 grams of fat, .21 grams of saturated fat and a total of 5.4 carbs!  Same great taste- different affect!  So come on if for your free sample while supplies last- you'll be glad you did (& so will everyone else at the swimming pool!)

Mention this post while you're in and get 10% off you entire purchase!  Good thru the rest of the weekend...

Make Mother's Day Meaningful...

...by giving a Journal Jar.  This jar includes over 100 questions and topics to write about.  Wouldn't it be nice to have your moms life story all written out by the end of the year?  This year for Mother's Day, ask her to write her story for you by giving her a Journal Jar.  Then, when it's finished... you can copy it all in her handwriting, or you can retype it and give it to everyone in your family for Christmas.  (That's two birds with one stone!)  Call and order your today... they are going fast!

Hats Off to Moms!


Mother's Day is May 9th (that's Sunday for all your slackers out there!) and the gals from Pioneer Party wanted to wish all of you girls out there a Happy Mother's Day because you don't have to be a mom to be caring and nurturing, and that's what Mother's Day is all about!  So our hats are off to you all!  And speaking of hats... we are getting a new shipment of hats in this week.  So come on in and check them out- and if you mention that the hat you are purchasing is a gift for Mother's Day, we will add a "Hats Off to You! Happy Mother's Day!" tag on the hat free of charge!  You just can't beat that!  So come on in- we can't wait to see you!
