November Visiting Teaching Gifts

Image
Fall is definitely here and with that brings leaves, a chill in the air - and baking warm dishes in the kitchen!  So while you get your apron out and finalize your menu for Thanksgiving... think about the words of the prophets from the October General Conference.   We've gathered a few of our favorite quotes and typed up a little menu to share with your sisters... complete with appetizers and dessert.  A chocolate "Cup of Gold" candybar is tucked in the apron so while you read and ponder, you can fill up your belly as well!  The tag on the front of our apron reminds us to "Add the Words of the Prophets to Your Thanksgiving Menu" Buy online here !

August Home and Visiting Teaching

Image
"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

Balloons!

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
