Halloween Popcorn Ball Decorating Kit

Halloween Popcorn Ball Decorating Kit

It is still not too late to begin planning this year's family Halloween party!  Some of our favorite childhood memories are the years we all met at Max, Harry & Jack's house for a fun pre-trick or treating Halloween dinner party.  Their mom, Karen, always had a healthy dinner planned so the kids would not dive right into their trick or treat bags before all the parents had a chance to go through the treats and weed out any suspicious looking or unwrapped “tricks”.

Other than the actual trick or treating, the kids' favorite part of the night was when Karen escorted them to a huge crafting table set up so each child had their own Halloween Popcorn Ball Decorating Kit. Karen always purchased a basic Halloween Popcorn Ball Decorating Kit from The Popcorn Factory.  Each Halloween Popcorn Ball Decorating Kit came with eight of their delicious signature Popcorn Balls and an array of decorating candy extras – basically, everything you would need to transform the yummy popcorn balls into ghoulies and ghosties and delicious things that go bump in the night. It truly was great family fun!

And best yet, now through Halloween (or while supplies last – yes The Popcorn Factory often runs out of these kits long before Halloween), you can get Get the Halloween Popcorn Ball Decorating Kit for $29.
Party Hearty!

Kids Community Service Activity – Clip Coupons for Coupons Help!

Coupons Help Fight Hunger

We are so excited to introduce our visitors to Coupons Help, a non-profit organization started by a 10 year old thoughtful, inspired, creative angel.  Basically, Chloe was at a family dinner when a friend of her father's mentioned that the food pantry he worked with could use coupons in addition to food to help those in need purchase food and essentials. Chloe began collecting coupons from the Sunday paper that would have otherwise been thrown away and mailed them to the shelter. It made a difference and so she thought she would build a website and try to collect coupons from people all over the world, especially kids like her. Chloe's goal is to get 3,000 coupons by the end of year!  We are here to support her in her efforts.

Beading & Jewelry Making Party Planning, Ideas & Supplies

This morning as I was watching the morning news shows, sipping coffee and enjoying our incredible San Diego summer, I felt almost saddened that many Americans will be forced to spend these last few weeks of summer vacation indoors due to inclement weather. So of course this got me thinking. I called the Party Idea {Pros} gang together and posed today's challenge – Let's create a fun indoor end of summer gal party that can be tailored to kids, teens, college coeds, or even moms needing a break. After a bit of brainstorming we unanimously decided upon

A Jewelry Making & Beading Party

Jewelry Making Party Goals

Create playful, stylin' back to school jewelry or get a jump start on creating DIY holiday gifts

Keep the actual crafting fairly simple so there is plenty of time for sipping, socializing, and nibbling.

Bead Party Inspiration

Before we even began thinking about the party details, we immediately turned to Shopbop (our go to shop for all things trendy) for inspiration. We quickly pulled together this jewelry inspiration board so that when we went looking for beading supplies, invitations, and centerpieces we had a clear direction.

Once we looked at the latest in jewelry designs, we turned to Amazon to see if we could replicate or approximate some of the design features currently being sold by top designers often for hundreds of dollars.

In preparation for the party you might also consider taking a jewelry crafting class in the comfort of your own home
