High School Football Coupon Cards

Friday, September 14th, 2012

Our baby brother Luke played on his high school football team for four years. As a fundraiser for the team they’d sell coupon cards for $20.

Luke’s long been graduated, but we track down a player and buy a card every September. Not only is it nice to support a team, but the deals on this little baby is what keeps us going back for more.

This year the Timpview card has 18 local businesses offering discounts. Our very favorite is Mageleby’s Fresh, free entree (up to $7) with purchase of entree and 2 drinks. We can’t get enough of their steak salad and battered fries….yum!

This card pays for itself in one visit, so call your local high school and see what they offer, and if any of you are interested in supporting Timpview this year, we can hook you up with someone!

…Go T-Birds!!!

The Sweet Tooth Fairy Cupcakes: Picnic Style

Wednesday, July 18th, 2012

 This post brought to you by: The Sweet Tooth Fairy


While planning for mum’s picnic party, we were struggling with ideas for dessert. Again we needed something easy and delicious, this is where The Sweet Tooth Fairy came to our rescue!

We think they are by far the yummiest cupcakes in Utah, and we love that they even had to-go packaging that matched the our theme of pretty and easy!

At the picnic we simply placed them in rows and let their appearance do all the work, no cakestands or even plates necessary.  However, they didn’t sit looking pretty for long as they were devoured almost instantly; and each guest insisted their flavor cupcake was the best. :)

Mum’s fave was the seasonal Pina Colada, it looked perfect with a single candle.

These cupcakes were the icing on a relaxed party, but I’m now convinced they’d make exceptional additions to any picnic.

A Modern Baby Shower: Favors

Tuesday, June 12th, 2012

Last Saturday we had my friend Kumari’s shower at our house. I wanted to have little favors for our guests, and needed something cute and easy we could put together without any fuss.

We once again headed over to Gygi, where we found these adorable paper bags, and bulk candy. We choose white taffy, and grey bags to match with our theme, and ta-da a cute little favor that couldn’t have been easier.

If you’re planning a party or get together you’ll have to stop by Gygi, especially since they are still offering our readers a 10% discount online with code “BOXWOOD10″…whoot whoot!!! (Remember you can pick up in store so you don’t have to pay shipping.)

PS. Did you see Gygi featured on the Today show last week? We love locals on national telly :) see HERE.

We discovered Anne Made Jam at Brambles, and were immediately smitten. The local jam company’s intriguing flavor combos and adorable packaging had us sold.

Usually these jams retail for $8, but Brambles is currently offering 20% off your choice of jam just in time for Father’s Day.
