Sizzling Party Favors and Giveaway!

Now that Summer is just about here, you can start planning that patio party or backyard BBQ. There is just something relaxing about a Summertime get together that I cannot resist! Perhaps it is the clear skies, the relaxed atmosphere, or the cold cocktails…….yeah most likely that last one. Regardless of why you enjoy a summer shin dig- I found these adorable summertime party favors and just love them!

These favors are a perfect summer touch for your next party! Loving these mini barbecue place card holders. You could also use them as a way to label your dishes at the next potluck you have, they’d look adorable on any picnic table! Fill them with candy or tealights. Be sure to add a personal touch and wrap your water bottles in these personalized labels. You could even order generic personalization (like your last name or “Summer 2009″) to keep the on hand for your next impromptu party. Oh and check out these crab wine bottle holders and personalized hot sauces, these are my favorite summer favor ideas yet!

Trendy Personalized Shirts For Your Little One

All moms want their little one to stand out from the crowd, right? Well, one fabulous company has figured out how to capture the personality of your little one in a trendy and stylish way. Check out these fabulous personalized tees from Bug & Goose.

These personalized tees are definitely an attention grabber. You can choose you favorite style shirt, color, fabric pattern, and personalization. The great gals over at Bug & Goose sent my 2 year old an adorable tee brown and pink tee with a “L” for her name. We love it! It is super cute and very well made. The cozy material fits perfectly and feels good too. We’ve washed it several times {she is now requesting the “L” shirt about every other day} and it looks just as fabulous as when it arrived.

With so many styles and options {for both boys & girls} I think these tees from Bug & Goose would make fabulous personalized gifts. They can be ordered in sizes 2-12 and all of the products from Bug & Goose are made right here in the USA. Fabulous! And to top it off, all of their adorable tees are priced under $26.00!

Mainstream Cleaners Gone Green

I have talked a lot about cleaning green here on Thoughtfully Simple. From do-it-yourself mixtures to some of the leading “green” brands; I am always looking to share new ways to clean your home in an earth friendly way. One thing I hear a lot of is how it is just so easy to grab the traditional cleaners that have always worked well at the grocery store. Well, in response to your comments…I have found a simple solution!

I recently had the pleasure of trying out a new green cleaner from the SC Johnson, A family Company. Nature’s Source is a new line of fabulous Eco-friendly cleaners that (dare I say it) work well! A new twist on your old favorites like Windex for your glass cleaning needs and Scrubbing Bubbles for your bathroom detail. Right at your local grocery store, you can find these trusted brands now reformulated with a more earth friendly formula.

I was impressed with how well these cleaners worked and how they really smelled fresh and clean without smelling like cleaner. From the kitchen to the bathroom (and many places in between), these green cleaners really get the job done.

So, there you have it….. green cleaning really is simple after all!
