April Fools Day Ideas!

Image
The day of jokes is coming up soon - and we have some fun tricks up our sleeve! Here are a few of our favorites:

Give your husband a scare by bringing home "It's a Girl!" or "It's a Boy!" balloons to announce a fake pregnancy! (order your balloons here and just pick them up!)
Tell your kids you made brownies for them - really hype it up and get them excited, then pull out a pan of brown E's! (We suggest having a back up of REAL brownies, otherwise this might be just too mean!)
We have a bunch of inexpensive prank items to choose from! Try the mouse or fake poop and set them around the house or office to startle a friend (on a pillow, keyboard, car seat, breakfast plate, etc). Get the fake bullet hole stickers and put on your friends windshield to give them a scare, or try dumping some of our itch powder in your husbands shirt before work!
Some additional ideas: Unscrew the shower head, add kool-aid, replace. Whoever takes a shower next will get a colorfu…

Paper Gift Sacks - not just for gifts!

Image
Warmer weather is coming! And with it, picnics, parties, and fun! We found some cute out-of-the-ordinary ways to use our striped/gingham/chevron paper gift bags. 
Use as a silverware holder for a party or gathering! We're thinking a little green for St. Patricks Day lunch? Or maybe some sweet pastels for Easter breakfast?! Birthday parties!? (We carry a ton of plastic wear - almost any color - you can order you personalized colors for your special silver wear craft here! And we also carry the ever popular paper straws, you can order here!)

Or they could be cute used as a sandwich bag - maybe for a special occasion for a child's lunch bag or a picnic? 

OR there is the good old fashioned way we Party Gals use them - fill 'em with candy! Anyway way you look at it, these bags are adorable and in stock! You can check them out here or come in the store to see full selection.…

Easy DIY Rainbow Chains!

Image
One of our talented Party Girls made this adorable paper rainbow chain backdrop for one of our St. Patrick's Day displays. Isn't is so cute!? It was super easy - so we thought we'd share!


Cut 1 x 9 inch strips of both color and kraft colored paper. (We like the look of backing it with kraft paper, but you don't have to). We cut about 30 for each chain and they are 5 feet long. 



Put the color and kraft together, turn into a circle and staple. Thread the next strips through the first circle you made and staple the same way. Continue on until you have a long chain (however long you want).



Do whatever colors you want. We chose rainbow colors and love the way it turned out! We used it for a display in our store, but you could use it for a ton of different things! 


Hang in front of your window or in your house above the mantel. Your kids would love to help make decor for their own house or even their room! Use it for a party backdrop for pictures or a backdrop for a serving tabl…

March Visiting and Home Teaching Gifts

Image
The visiting teaching message this month (from the Ensign) is entitled, "The Divine Mission of Jesus Christ: Light of the World." We want to include women from all over the world... and remind each other that He is the Light of the World and we are indeed LUCKY to know who He is. 




We have created a (vintage inspired) gift that we hope you'll love. An old fashioned map holds the message from the Ensign as well as a chocolate Cup of Gold candy bar. We've adorned the gift with a band of golden cardstock, a lovely green clover, glittered ribbon, and a tag that reads, "Lucky Women Around the World... Look to the Light of the World."




We hope you feel as LUCKY as we do to know Christ and share this message with others. 

Ribbon and chocolate may vary from description, but know that it will always be "Pioneer Party" approved!




The title for March's home teaching message is "Service and Eternal Life" (written by President Henry B. Eyring).

Olympic Fun with the Kids!

Image
Get into the Olympic spirit this year! Our kids love to watch the games and we found some fun, easy crafts to do while watching! This would make for a fun family night too. These are just a few of our favorites from this website!
This adorable little skier looks so fun (and yummy)! Grab some assorted candies (kisses, kit-kats, jelly beans, gumdrops, etc) and glue or frost together - gingerbread house style!
This one just requires some paper, a few milk jug lids, and paint (blue, green, yellow, red, and black)!
The snowboard man! You just need some pipe cleaners and a tongue depressor! A few markers to decorate your snowboard - and you are good to go! 
Another cute one is this Olympic torch from I Can Teach My Child
click the link for instructions - super easy and oh-so-cute!

Happy Olympics  and  GO USA!!
