    Recipes for Bridal Showers

    Thanks for the great ideas! Thank you so much for the great ideas! We are going to do a trifle bowl recipe and probably Aloha Pizza, but I had thought about the doll cake and the Clubhouse Chicken Squares. This is a group I do a lot of shows for so they may have seen that one already (Can't...

    Trifle Bowl

    So Sorry this happened! I hesitantly made two trifles in my bowls (one came with a shattered stand, they let me keep it, the other came intact and replaced the first one) for Easter Dinner. Surprisingly, nothing happened, but I was very protective of them! I'm glad they will replace it for...

    Family Dollar stores

    Great! thanks for the tip! I will check out my local FD tomorrow on my way out of town! I have a few shows booked for May, but not as many as I really want. I could probably assemble something that would work well as hostess gifts as a booking "bribe"! Take care! PS--thanks again, Deb...

    Opps! I'm still learning this website! I did know that but hadn't logged in for a long time. I'll figure out how to change it and delete it. In the meantime, can I edit it from what I've already posted?

    What products are good for camping

    Grilling Planks We tried the grilling planks with burgers the other night! They work great! I put a little sweet and smokey bbq rub and put my husband's burger on the plank (just in case--LOL)! It smelled great while it was cooking! He said the burger was better than ever! Of course I used...

    My First Online Registry--Woo-Hooo!

    Wow! This is exciting! I too just registered my first 2 brides-to-be. I have been doing it a little differently. I offer to register them for them! I give them the current shopping list off an order form and ask them to select anything and everything they want. I then have them write down...

    Book to look idea worked

    Great Ideas! :) Awesome Ideas! I too make lapboards. At one of my cluster meetings, someone suggested using the trifold boards we get with the celebrations shows on them. I cut them into three seperate pieces, sometimes I need to reinforce the edges with some clear packing tape, but they...

    Fairs Thanks for that great info! I think I am aiming to get bookings and recruit leads. How do you do that sort of thing? As far as sales, is it ok to offer a small %age off so people are more attracted? since I have them, I'm going to start baking cookies soon and have been making tissue...

    Holiday Club

    I was considering offering my customers a Holiday Club this year. I would provide gift wrapping if desired, but the main focus was the payment. They have until December to make their final payment and then I will submit it as a nice show. Shipping is either standard and they meet me or I go...
