New Years Eve Party Ideas

A FUN PARTY THEME IDEA: Countdown by the Hour (Use a CLOCK theme to carry throughout the decorations and activities) -Paint kids faces white, then use black to draw clock hands. -White balloons (or clear filled with confetti) can be drawn on to look like a clock. -Have guests bring an alarm clock (and gather all of your own)… set the alarms to all go off atmidnight (or earlier, depending upon the ages of the guests). -Kids can decorate a paper plate to look like a clock. Punch a hole in the top, and hang the clocks at different levels from the ceiling. To start out the night… Make an individual party bag for each guest that you will hand each guest at the beginning of the party (instead of the end). Personalize the outside with their name as well as a greeting: “Let’s Start the countdown to 2010!” or “Countdown by the Hour to 2010 starts NOW!” In the bag will be their hat, horns, individual pack of confetti, a champagne glass, a notepad for goal setting, and of course, a treat. A few crea…

December Visiting Teaching Gifts

Image
December's Visiting Teaching gifts are here!  It is always fun to create gifts around the holiday themes, especially this season.  The title of the message from the Ensign is "The Divine Mission of Jesus Christ:  The Only Begotten Son."  



We've used a kraft box (2"x2"4"), filled it with the message (printed on a cream paper), 2 Pioneer Valley buttercream caramels, and a special magnet of Christ.  We received special permission from artist Del Parson (of Utah) to use one of his pictures of Christ, entitled "Jesus of Nazereth."  We added words at the bottom of the magnet "I believe that thou art the Christ, the Son of God," which is a quote from the message.  We hope that sisters nationwide will be able to view this magnet all year long and have it inspire them daily.
The gift looks darling all done up with a strip of paper wrapped around the box (which has different names of Jesus printed all over it), red jute ribbon, and a darling…

12 Days of Christmas Missionary Style

Image
Want a darling package to send to your missionary that is ALL READY to go?  We all have good intentions, but sometimes time slips away and those care packages or other crafts/gifts get put aside.  If you need to send something without all the fuss - let us help!



Each day's card is designed in black and white and starts like this...
"On the (1st) day of Christmas, the Savior gave to me..."
We wanted to emphasize all the many things that the Savior has given all of us.

Here is a brief summary of the candy bars included as well as the "gift" that the Savior has given us on that particular day.  Each card has either a scripture, a quote from a prophet, or lyrics to a song that correlates with the gift.



Day 1 - A "Symphony" of Christmas songs
Day 2 - A gospel that is worth way more than "100 Grand"
Day 3 - A "Sweet" family to enjoy this life with...
Day 4 - An opportunity to be a "Lifesaver" in other's lives...
Day 5 - An …

GIVE THANKS BANNER

Image
Want to look and feel crafty but not have to come up with the whole project?  We have created a simple "GIVE" banner kit that's so simple to put together and not only is darling, but serves a purpose as well!  The dark brown paper sacks are left open so that you and your family can place notes of gratitude inside.  Whether you add them daily, weekly, or just Thanksgiving Day - it will be fun to read them all to hear what everyone around you is thankful for.  The kit includes 4 designer paper sacks, "Give" letters, 10 blank notes, and ribbon.  Just cut out the letters, attach ribbon, and glue to your sack!  

Available in our store in Lehi or online here!

Have you seen this idea before?  Such a GREAT way to serve veggies at a bridal or baby shower - or any party for that matter!  Just grab your clear plastic cups, pour some ranch into the bottom, then place your veggies standing up tall!
