Cheering Up A Loved One: Give Them A Surprise To Remember

You already hold your loved-ones dear; however, have you ever thought about throwing them a surprise get-together? You might want to show a family member how much you appreciate all their help over the years, or perhaps one of your closest friends is going through a difficult time and could use the distraction. Whatever the reason is to organize something special; there’s no time like the present to make them feel truly special and appreciated.

You don’t have to spend a fortune, or create a major event; your nearest and dearest will appreciate any effort you put into making them feel better. The following are some ideas for those who are keen to show someone just how much they mean and that you want to give them a day to remember.


A Venue

No matter how big or small the guest list will be; you’ll need to find a suitable venue that can fit everyone inside comfortably. Bear in mind who’s coming; you might not want to hire out a rooftop that’s only accessible by stairs if there are elderly guests attending. Similarly; you don’t want to hire somewhere too quiet and stuffy if your group are young, and a little loud when they’re having fun (nothing wrong with that). Restaurants often have private dining rooms; so you can enjoy the service and ambiance of the venue without any interruption from the general public. VIP areas in venues could also be a great option, and it will make it feel special.


Your loved one won’t be expecting a gift; however, something thoughtful, that they can keep forever and remember their special day, will give them something to cherish for years. Jewelry is the perfect way to pick something that you know will suit their personality and style, and they can wear it each day. Check out what Alex and Ani offers for some inspiration, and think about colors, textures, and styles that the guest of honor will adore.

Food And Drink

Classic party food and plenty of nibbles is a sure fire way to please all your guests. If you’ve chosen a restaurant as a venue; hopefully you’ll pick your loved ones favorite cuisine, or somewhere you know the majority of people will relish. Check out Pinterest ideas and discover some great recipes and party food inspiration so you can apply what you like the look of to your special day, evening, or night.


A banner with your best friend’s or family member’s name on is the perfect way to set the tone for the party; it’s all about them. You can use traditional balloons, and add homemade bunting, streamers, and ribbons for a low cost, but effective, decorative touch. Have fun with your decor, and stay in the party spirit!

Music And Entertainment

You can create more of an ambiance with music, and ensure everyone gets into the party spirit. If your loved one favors a particular era or genre of music, or they love certain groups and bands; you can play all their favorite songs and truly give them a special night to remember.

So, take time to plan a special day or evening get together for someone special.

Baby First TV 'I Can Sign" First Words

Hey Neighbors! Here is a really neat gift idea for someone with a young child.  Here we have I Can Sign (First Words) from Baby First  TV.  Now, I am just going to share right here that we have friends who have taught two of their children to sign at a very young age.  And it works!  Their children could sign before they could talk. The Dvd will teach your child many useful words that will be used in day to day life.  Words like: eat, water, milk, cookie, ear, feet hands, kiss, sleep, book, mother, father, and many other words.  Each word is taught in a short video clip where they will see pictures of the word/item and people signing.  There is also a little character at the bottom corner of the video signing along.  The Dvd can be done on English or Spanish.  Also included on the Dvd are printable coloring pages that you can print off by inserting the Dvd into your computer.  Inside the cover of the Dvd case is a little booklet that covers some of the words you and your child

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
