As you know, I have been working hard, making Hot Cocoa Bombs, getting ready for the Ugly Sweater Express, to be held the first Saturday in December. We have come up with new flavors for this year, including cinnamon and peanut butter, and we are introducing Sugar Free Bombs as well. In this post, I showed you the chocolate owl stirring sticks we are going to be offering, too.
Well, speaking of wrappings and trappings, I want to show you some things I got in the mail from Oriental Trading recently that I am going to use to package my Hot Cocoa Bombs. I like to have boxes ready for people to use for gift giving, or just to carry their Bombs home in. Oriental trading has some great deals on packaging supplies!
These boxes come in 3 sizes and there are a dozen of them for only $2 .98. The biggest one will probably hod 12 Cocoa Bombs. I am going to call it the party pack. The snowman box will hold about 6. That will be family sized and the little reindeer box will hold 1, maybe two. That will be gift sized, Hot Cocoa Bombs make a great teacher or neighbor gift.
Of course, I couldn't pass up theselittle owl boxes! They will hold just 1 bomb. But there are a lot of owl lovers out there, as I learned after posting this article. So, I think this little box will be a cute way to present a Hot Cocoa Bomb to someone. Look, a couple of them are even winking!
I had also ordered somecupcake sized owl boxes, but they were accidentally left out of my order. I called to tell them, and the people at Oriental Trading were so nice and shipped it out to me right away! They also included a calendar with that shipment that has all kinds of cute craft ideas in it.
Another thing that came in my package was a Christmas catalog! I have a weakness for ornaments, and they offer so many that are so much more reasonable than the ones you find in the stores. This cute nativity ornament would be great for so many people on my list, and they are only 12.99 for a dozen! And, how many people do you know that love angels?Look at these! So cute!
I told you a couple of posts ago that I wouldn't be able to stop now that the subject of Christmas has come up! Don't worry, I am still working on Halloween and Thanksgiving as well. Like Alicia told you here, we can really get the fusion of holidays going on! Lindsey's birthday is next weekend and she is holding her annual Pumpkin Party at our house! So, pumpkins are still something I am working with. We will be sure to post pictures of that event! Not to mention Trunk or Treat on Halloween. There will be a myriad of Thanksgiving dishes after that, including my mom's best ever pie crust recipe! Be sure to fill out our contact form so that you don't miss any of the holiday fun! We are trying to get a newsletter started. I am thinking of doing a Hot Cocoa Bomb give-away to celebrate that event, so be sure to stay tuned, visit our Facebook page, Twitter and Instagram as well Talk to you again on Monday!
