And here’s one more post to close out the series. Thanks to everyone who’s followed along…I hope you’ve enjoyed it as much as I have!
I can assure you I’m not creative enough to come up with these Redbox printable gifts on my own–but after a friend pinned this tutorial on Pinterest, I was excited to give them my own flair!
So basically, the concept is simple…popcorn, a cute note, and a movie code = instant family movie night. Now that Arden is to the age where she actually gets excited about movies (that doesn’t mean she’ll sit still for them!), I’m looking forward to those nights where we break out the sleeping bags and camp out on the living room floor with a good movie and junk food. I’m all about healthy-eating, but I think junk food makes for better memories 😉
So here’s all you need to do…
1. Download the printable here.
2. Print on cardstock and attach to microwaveable popcorn bag with washi tape, twine, etc.
3. Purchase as many red box codes as needed. You can buy them in bundles and have them sent to yourself. In other words, you’re the giver and the receiver–then you’ll get an email with all the codes, which you can the add to the printables.
4. Deliver to friends, family, neighbors, etc. Arden got a kick out of giving them to her playgroup and dance class friends…and she especially loved playing Santa and dropping some off in other friends’ mailboxes.
5. Take all that time you saved and go enjoy Christmas with your family 🙂
Have a great weekend, friends!
Hello Sunflower State of Mind readers, I’m Brittany and I blog about my family’s life at Just Another Day in Paradise – I’m excited to be guest blogging for Vanessa today!! She is one of my best friends in real life and I love her blog, her family/kids (almost the exact same age as mine), her decorating style and party planning and most of all- that she’s back in Kansas City and we are neighbors. I can’t wait for our kids to grow up together and seriously cannot believe how stinking cute baby Nash is and how fast he’s growing!!!
Hello, Sunflower State of Mind Readers! I’m Emily and I blog at Dear Owen! Although, I hate to admit my little blog has definitely been a bit neglected since the birth of my second little one, I LOVE blogging but, I fall short… a lot! I do, however have an Etsy store, Dear Owen & Co. that I run with my business partner ( aka Mom ) where we design creative goods for children’s rooms and nurseries.
It’s safe to say I am a design junkie, or maybe just a Pinterest addict/dreamer. Since having two kids I have become completely in love with children’s design, which is why I thought I’d share a bit of my addiction with all of you today! 😉 Adding a little festiveness to your child’s room is such a fun way to get your little one excited for the upcoming holidays! Christmas most definitely is my favorite holiday to decorate for and it’s safe to say my kids favorite, too. I’ve rounded up some ideas to help you bring in some Christmas Cheer. (and I apologize in advance to the #boymoms out there. Since this is my first Christmas with a little girl I’m sharing lots of girly goodness!)
I am all about easy…so here are a few ideas that will add a special touch to your babes room but not any headache. Switch out your child’s every day sheet for a festive Christmas sheet or pillowcase. Hang a special stocking in their room and add fresh greenery or maybe even a little tulle. There are so many cute pillow options on Etsy. This gold “Merry” one is a personal favorite. Of course, books are a great way to add a little holiday fun as well, leave them on display, in a basket, or even stacked on a shelf. I love this simple vignette, complete with gold bowls and ornaments, a bottle brush tree, and a simple art print. String a gold sparkly banner and you’re all set.
Thanks so much for having me Vanessa, I am elated for you and your precious new family of FOUR!
Merry Christmas, Friends!
