Tiny Tots Tuesdays: Host the Ultimate Kids Party with BirthdayExpress.com!


You’re invited to our Dr. Seuss Party courtesy of BirthdayExpress.com. We were recently sent a deluxe birthday pack featuring Dr. Seuss and we were amazed at the quality! They have all of the popular kids party packs including Disney’s Frozen and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Disclosure: I got this product
as part of an advertorial.

Birthday Express’ party packs are great for busy parents. They come in basic, deluxe and ultimate packs (select designs). Our deluxe Dr. Seuss party pack included the following…

  • 8 Dinner Plates
  • 8 Dessert Plates
  • 8 Cups
  • 8 Forks
  • 8 Spoons
  • 16 Lunch Napkins
  • 1 Table cover
  • 1 Foil Balloon
  • 1 Centerpiece
  • 18 Balloons (3 different colors)
  • 3 Curling Ribbon (3 different colors)
  • 3 Crepe Paper Rolls (3 different colors)
  • 16 Cake Candles (red)
  • 8 Thank You Notes
  • 8 Cone Hats
  • 1 Personalized Banner (18″ x 61″)

The deluxe set above retails for $39.00. This is a steal considering you could pay that alone for a great quality personalized banner. The banner from Birthday Express is thick, reusable, well-printed and includes grommets for hanging. Plus, you can personalize the banner with your own photos and text!

You will also receive more than enough high-quality table wear, decorations and even a large foil balloon that can be helium filled. BirthdayExpress.com’s merchandise is officially licensed. Plus, buy the deluxe pack and you’ll save over $25.00 compared to buying everything separately.

If you have a party coming up, consider letting Birthday Express do all of the decorating for you. Shipping is quick and setup is fun and easy!

For a limited time, use code “THING1″ to receive free shipping on your Dr. Seuss order (no minimum)!

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Wish List Wednesday: Happy World Food Day! We’re Celebrating with our Love With Food October Box…


Happy World Food Day! We were excited to celebrate this global movement to end hunger #WFD2013. Props to the folks at Love with Food for scheduling the delivery of our first subscription box on such an appropriate day!

If you haven’t tried Love with Food, hopefully you will change your mind by the end of this post.
Love with Food is a monthly subscription service that sends you approximately eight full-size snacks from companies you may not have heard of and/or don’t have available yet in your local super market. It’s super easy to sign up, only $12 a month (includes US shipping!) and for every box you buy you help give a meal to a hungry child. So if you are looking to spoil yourself, this is an affordable way to get a lot of bang for your buck and be charitable in the process!

The signature 10 x 6 x 2 red box is usually delivered by mid-month and comes saran wrapped so your snacks stay fresh and protected. Once you break open the box, you will immediately see the corresponding month’s info. card with details on each sample and how to purchase (at a discount!) more tasty snacks. If you feeling impatient and hungry, toss the card first and dig in! Snacks like specialty cookies, crackers, hard candies, natural gum and more await. And you only have to share if you really want to (just blame it on us when the box is gone before everyone else gets home!)

You’ll also receive accruing points for reviewing each snack and for referring friends that you can use to purchase more snacks. Still not convinced? Try one of the following codes to try to get your first box for only $2.00! (FBPROMO, FBGIFT or FBFOOD) Love with Food is a monthly snack subscription service and you can cancel at anytime. The Gifting Experts purchased the above snack box and was not compensated for this feature.
