Make Your Super Bowl Party With Oriental Trading

       I'm sure I have mentioned before that we are big time football fans in this house. As a Broncos fan from birth this Super Bowl is going to be even more exciting! Recently I was given the chance to review some great Super Bowl party items from Oriental Trading that will make our Super Bowl even more exciting. We decided to give our party kit a little good luck run this weekend :). It's only weird if it doesn't work right lol.
       You can see most of the items in this picture. I want to talk a little about the football stadium drink cooler. Now I will admit when I picked this item I majorly under estimated the size of When I took it out of the package I realized how BIG it is. Measuring 2 foot by 4.5 feet it holds 40 pounds of ice and could hold 50+ drinks with ease. This will be the PERFECT Super Bowl party cooler because it can hold so many drinks, that even with friends over for the big game you won't have to constantly refill it. The Inflatable Football Buffet Cooler is only $10 and I think is very well made, you can order it HERE.
       Oriental Trading also provided us with some of their Super Bowl Plates for this years game. These are the dinner plates which are a sturdy paper plate that measures 10.5". You can get 16 plates for only $3.49 and you can order them HERE. You can see also in the picture some cute little foam fingers that say WE'RE #1. These are a great party idea for children and they fit great on their fingers :) they do also fit on adult fingers if you have a fun friend that needs a little extra cheering help. They come in many different colors, but we went with the assorted pack of 12 which run only $4.00 for a dozen. You can buy them HERE.
       We received so many fun items in our party kit. Here is two more that we really loved. Every party needs cups, and let's face it, if they are disposable it can make a large party so much more peaceful. These football cups are made of a sturdy plastic, I really liked them because when you picked them up full it didn't feel like you would squish them and have liquid all over. They hold 16 ounces, so you don't have to constantly refill them and miss part of the game. The price is what I really like the best, for 50 cups you only pay $8.00! You can purchase these cups HERE. I'm sure you are looking at the adorable little Referee Bottle Covers, these were so much fun for everyone. I know in this picture I show them on a bottle of beer. However these cute little covers will fit over any bottle, including soda and water bottles of a standard size, so they can really be fun for the whole family. They run $8.00 for a dozen bottle covers and can be bought HERE.

       I also received this fun game which is called Football Toss Game. Excuse the stock photo my camera did not want to give up the picture for this one. When I opened this I was surprised at the quality. It is made from a nice heavy press board, which is almost a wood quality. It has wooden parts on it as well, which made it super sturdy to play with. My kids really really enjoyed playing with this, and since football can be a bit slow for children sometimes, it was the perfect thing to keep them entertained!
        If you are planning a Super Bowl Party I highly recommend you check out Oriental trading for all your party needs. You can find more Super Bowl Party items HERE in case I didn't feature something that you might need.

Jello Hard Candy

Most hard candies call for corn syrup, but since I was out and I have 3 children home I decided to experiment and make something fun! Here is what you need:
2 Cups of Sugar
2 Cups of Water
1 Package Sugar Free Jello
A candy Thermometer

Making candy is a pretty tricky process and trust me I messed up a batch or two getting this to work Put the sugar and water into the pot and turn on medium whisking well till the sugar is dissolved. Stirring pretty regularly to help the sugar from burning. As the sugar begin to boil turn the heat up to high. Watch your thermometer when the candy reaches 230 pour in the jello continuing to mix. Pour this mixture immediately into a cake pan that is lined with parchment paper of you can rub a little veggie oil in it. The candy will continue to cook as it melts anything over 230 you will be left with a burnt candy that tastes like After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I like to dust mine …

Killing Ants Safely

LOL okay I know the title seems a bit silly. Here is West Texas ants are a BIG problem. Not only do they bite, but well they are really annoying! They sneak into every crack in your house no matter how hard you try. With pets though you are very limited to the products you can safely use to kill ants. As time goes on more and more I am concerned about the products I keep in this house and the effect they have on not only me and my children, but my pets. When looking for ways to rid myself of these pests I found a simple, cheap, and effective means to do so. CORNMEAL! Yep it is very simple, for about $2 a bag I can treat weekly for an entire year! While it doesn't kill them all it has certainly brought down the population so that now it isn't even noticeable. All you do it sprinkle it on top of their mounds and watch the greedy little ants drag it all inside! When eaten it expands and POOF! ;O) You get the picture.

Homemade Fly Traps

We all love summer but as the weather gets warmer the flies get worse and worse. We have a bush out front of our house that I swear just attracts every fly in town! I wanted to get rid of them but I didn't want to kill all the wonderful butterflies it also attracts. So I went about finding a new way to kill them all. I had some empty Tazo tea bottles I simply poked a pen sized whole in the top, added 1/2 cup of water, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1 tablespoon of dish soap, and 1 tablespoon of syrup.Now I do find that these work better if you place them in the sun :O) If you want to use a bigger container simply multiply the ingredients. Make sure your hole is only about the size of a pen cap! Then they can't seem to get back
