Crystal Water Beads: Not Just for Grown-Ups

As the weather is getting cool and leaves are fading fast, we tend to move our activities indoors. No more pool parties or fun days in the park for awhile, which can sometimes be a hassle if you’re a party planner. Children’s birthdays can get especially difficult when they must be held in the months between October and February. How many parties at Chuck E. Cheese can one person plan?! And if you can’t go outdoors and let nature do the decorating, you’re often times left with the “streamer and balloon” go-to. Ho-hum. But that doesn’t have to be the case. Crystal water beads can turn a blah cake table, decorated with crepe paper and confetti, into a wow highlight of your party.

For your little princess, there’s a pink, purple, and clear water bead party mix on sale right now that would go great in a vase, surrounded by all the sparkle and frills you can stand. And our submersible water lights would add even more “bling” to her glitzy celebration.

Colorful Centerpiece Decorations That Will Carry You Through The Holiday Season

With Halloween just behind us, many families are gearing up for the Holiday Season. Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years are all times when families come together. This means special decorations with the proper color themes and images. Centerpiece decorations can be the perfect way to add a little color and festivity to your home.

With four holidays right in a row it is important to be able to make your centerpieces match each theme. You will also need several pieces, one for the main table, one for the kids table and perhaps a few decorative pieces around the house –like on the mantle, coffee, sofa and side tables. With several major holidays falling so close together it can be important to find ways to get all the way through with low cost and less work.

Halloween and Thanks giving both fall in autumn. Halloween of course has a lot of significant color themes like black, orange and purple. Fall harvest is the big theme for both holidays. So your center piece should have lots of reds, browns, oranges and yellows in it. Moving into Christmas where red and green are the big colors but frequently blues and white are big symbols of winter. Finally with the New Year gold, silver and blues are always big color choices along with blacks left over from Halloween.

Of course the main table is not the only place for a centerpiece. Kids that often get toted of their own table like to feel like they are still a part of the festivities. A special centerpiece for the kids table can be a nice touch – one with lots of holiday symbols can make it fun and yet still appealing for them. Mantle pieces are a great way to add a little flare to your home with a beautiful flower arrangement or candle set. With the right colors it will light up your home perfectly. Finally wonder through and count how many tables you have in your home. Coffee tables, sofa tables and side tables are all wonderful spots for small pieces to keep the theme running and still be subtle enough and not too gaudy.

All these pieces can be done inexpensively with a few glass vases, some candles and different colors of water beads. Your reds, oranges and yellows can be used over and over to carry Halloween into Thanksgiving. Rearrange your greenery with different reds and green beads for Christmas. Cut down on your work for New Years and use clear, white and blue for both holidays. Crystal Water Beads will hold water for up to two weeks so you won’t have to worry about keeping your plants healthy. These inexpensive and simple tools can keep your home looking festive and bright through the entire holiday season.
