Plan a Soup Swap Party
Another who woulda thunk it moment! January 18th (the 3rd Saturday of January) is this year's National Annual Soup Swap Day. We originally read about this creative party idea in Sara McColl's Yahoo article entitled “The Only Party Invitation We Want This Time of Year” . I guess it should not surprise anyone that we were intrigued. A winter party theme that is easy to organize, allows you to keep your weight loss / get healthy resolutions, has very little cost associated with it. And best of all you get to go home with one of the best party favors ever – 6 quarts of delicious soups, enough for dinner for a week.
And even if you missed the official soup swap day, no worries. As far as we are concerned any day can be soup swap day.
Soup Swap Party Supplies
What else you and your 5 guests will need:
- Six (6) Quarts of delicious homemade freezable soup
- 6 Ball Wide Mouth Quart Jars with Lids and Bands
- Each invitee should pour the soup into the individual mason jars.
- Jars should be labeled with the chef's name, the name of the soup and the date prepared (you can even include the mason jar labels with your invitations)
The host should prepare an extra pot of soup to be served with a loaf of warm bread and a bottle or two of fabulous discount wine from The Wine Spies. Or need it quickly, check out Saucey. Continue Reading →

Celebrate & Support Women's Causes
This week Hillary Clinton made history. She became the first woman to accept a major national political party's nomination for President of the United States. Whether you agree with her politics, or not, this is a milestone in women's history and can and should be celebrated. How, you ask? We think the very best way to embrace the moment is to celebrate the women in your life and to support women's causes.
And yes, we are absolutely obsessed with PuraVida Bracelets but not just because they are adorable and affordable, but because you can party pretty, all day and into the night, AND add meaning to your celebration. Part of the proceeds from the sale of all of these bracelets go towards benefiting important women's causes. Additionally, every time you wear them, you help spread awareness of the issues affecting hundreds of thousands of women around the world. In a small way, you become an ambassador for the cause.
