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.

Just 256 days 21 hours 52 minutes 18 seconds until Mardi Gras 2019!

There is no better party than a Mardi Gras Masquerade party!  Party Idea Pros will walk you through every step of your celebration providing professional recommendations on just about every detail including including invitations, Decor, Party Favors, Gifts, Masks, Beads, Fun and Game ideas, and lots and lots of little extras.

Just the name Mardi Gras conjures up images of drunken, bead-wearing revelers dancing through the streets of New Orleans. But how, and when, did this huge mid-winter party get started? Here’s a look at the history of Mardi Gras throughout the ages and across the nations.

  • The first Mardi Gras parade was staged in the United States 1837
  • Mardi Gras means “Fat Tuesday” and of course is celebrated on that day of the week, the day before Ash Wednesday.  The date can fall between February 3 and March 9 depending on the Lunar calendar, used by the Catholic Church to determine the date of Easter. Mardi Gras is always 47 days before Easter Sunday.
  • The official colors for Mardi Gras are purple, green, and gold.
    • Purple represents justice
    • Green stands for faith
    • Gold stands for power

An oval cake honoring the three kings is decorated in purple, green and gold colors, representing justice, faith and power, respectively. A small plastic baby, symbolizing the Baby Jesus, is baked into each cake. Whoever gets the piece with the baby not only will have good luck that year, but will also be responsible for bringing the King Cake to next year’s party!

Let Party Idea {Pros} inspire you to throw the most festive Mardi Gras Party outside of New Orleans!

XLVIII Super Bowl Invitations, Party Supplies & Party Planning Tips

XLVIII Super Bowl Invitation
XLVII Super Bowl Invitation - BackDespite cocky assertions of dominance and armchair pundit  predictions, nobody really knows who will be playing in Super Bowl  XLVIII. Nonetheless, it is none to early to begin planning your Super Bowl 2014 viewing party.  Mark your calendars and send out these fabulous Super Bowl Invitations today.

After your invitations go out, you have just 2 weeks to plan the rest of your  Super Bowl viewing party!  Your first step will be to decide whether you  want your party to be a neutral zone or cater to the teams' fan bases.  You can choose traditional  football party decor or go with the team colors, banners, flags, and decorations.

We also recommend you plan on at least a few football party games  just in case there is a lull in the conversation or the football game is a blowout. If you are watching a game on television, let your guests make the calls — provide individual penalty flags – just picture a room full of people tossing their flags all at once!  Madden Football 2013 is always good for hours of football fun. For the young at heart, pinatas are a great way to end any party.  Years ago we met the fellow who created Fiki finger Football and have been obsessed ever since!  And  printable games are quick, economical, and easy to execute party fillers.
