Oh my goodness! We found the cutest idea ever for your Easter festivities!! Confetti Easter Eggs! They are traditionally called Cascarones and you play by smashing these colorful fun eggs over your dear friends heads!
To put a spin on the game, fill one egg with gold confetti (we have it in store!) and the rest with fruity pebbles cereal -- so you won't feel bad about clean-up.... let the birds clean up for you -- and whoever gets the gold confetti get a special prize (might we suggest a giant bag of chocolate coverage cinnamon bears?)!
Looks like so much fun!
Check out Oh Happy Day's blog for full details and instructions.
This month's visiting teaching gift is a must have! We have designed a bright and cheerful print that can be put into a frame and displayed in your home.
The quote says, "Jesus Christ saves us from sin and death. For that, he is very literally our Savior and Redeemer." (quote from mormon.org) We've included the official message from the April 2014 Ensign, a bag of (Dessert or Tropical flavored) Skittles, and wrapped it up with a darling ribbon.
You'll want to get yourself one JUST for the darling print that can be framed. Enjoy! This month's home teaching gift is so bright and fun!
We've used a chevron printed paper sack, filled it with a spring-themed bag of Lifesavers (24 servings), added the message from the April 2014 Ensign, and tied it all together with a cute egg and ribbon.
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 colorful, sticky shower!
Take out a fake classified ad and put a friend or family members phone number as the contact - they will get random phone calls all day!
Skim off the top layer of a solid deodorant stick and replace it with cream cheese.
Bake "chocolate chip cookies" using mashed potatoes and raisins
Fill ice cream cones with mashed potatoes and freeze them. Add nuts, cherries, sprinkles, etc.
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.
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 table at your St. Patrick's Day party.
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).
We have created a darling gift that hopefully will inspire the person(s) you home teach to want to serve others! We have used a kraft-colored take-out box, filled with approximately 1/2 pound of green apple frooties (tootsie rolls), and wrapped it all up with ribbon and of course included the message from the Ensign. The tag reads, "Lucky to Serve and become more like Him."
We hope these stylish and easy gifts make it a little easier for you to serve!
