We don't see snow that often, living in a warmer climate like Alabama. This year we are excited to carry a snow kit from Inklings Paperie.
Here are the directions to create your own "snow show".
How To Make Snow:
1. Pour 1 tsp DRY SNOW into a measuring cup or bowl.
2. Add ⅓ CUP OF WATER, and watch it grow! No mixing is required.
3. To form a snowball, add a bit more water until snow begins to form clumps when squeezed. Once ball shape has formed, gently place in a bowl and freeze to retain shape.
TIP: To re-use, spread it out on a plastic surface to dry. Within 48 hours, water will evaporate and your snow will return to its original state so you can enjoy it again and again!
TIP: To discard, granules can be added to soil in flower pots to help maintain moisture, or discard with trash (do not pour down sink!)
Inklings uses non-toxic, USA-made polymer in the snow. They hand-blend it with glitter which makes for a magical addition. Snow can be used on all surfaces and will not stain, however for easier clean-up you may want to use it on a tablecloth or piece of fabric. Mist with water to refresh.
How To Make Snow Slime:
• 1/2 cup of white glue
• 1 pump of lotion
• 1 tsp of Borax dissolved in 1 cup of water
• 1 tsp snow
Slowly add activator to glue/lotion mix until slime comes together and is no longer sticky. Once slime is fully activated, add 1tsp of dry snow. Mix until fully incorporated, and add more activator as needed if slime still feels sticky.

We divided the pack in half and added 2 cups cold water per bowl. Mixing with hands in sufficient if you can take the cold.
it felt like real snow; the best day ever!
so cold this would be a fun in the spring or summer too
Our snow balls were rock solid, so they were able to be thrown multiple times. Rinsed off and spread out on plastic to dry out.

Hope you enjoy the snow! ~ Jennifer
Each pack contains eight plates in five different colors and 8 different numbers - plus the silver foil detail will brighten up any race car themed party! You can also spiff it up by adding some checkered flag accents or balloons! This is just one of our many fun themed plates that go along perfect with any celebration!
This happy daisy set up could be used for many different parties. It would be perfect for a sweet and bright birthday celebration! The pack of daisy plates come with twelves plates in six different colors. We layered them with the Happy Dots plate to add a pop of color that flowed perfectly with our candy dish that Charlie found. Yes, you go Charlie! We think the Pink Striped runner goes so well with this, but the sorbet runner would be nice too!
Charcuterie boards are all the rage right now, even candy boards. So in addition to cake or cupcakes consider making your own candy assortment. We chose bright candy to match the themes. And did you notice the paper runners are great for charcuterie layered right on top or underneath a wooden board to protect the table?!?!
We also wanted to feature some seasonal table set ups! This one is a favorite of Jenn, Katelyn and Mckenzie. In fact, it sold out the first week! This absolutely adorable Halloween table has tons of fun details on it. This Pastel Halloween plate brings a pop of pink to your spooky celebration! Pair it with a matching napkin and layer with different charger plates to make your table stand out. Add some tricky treats and your favorite Halloween decorations to complete this look!
Our Ombre Pumpkin plate set is a "must have" plate for either Halloween or Thanksgiving. For this party set up we used them for a Thanksgiving themed celebration. Paired with the Hester + Cook Turkey placemats and accented with the Pastel Pumpkin napkins. This is a fun yet classy take on Thanksgiving and Fall that we are absolutely loving! You can find most all of these items right here at Jenn & Co.

Thanks for reading today. Let us know you were here.

PS - if you need more quantity or have a special order request let us know.
Planning balloon decor outside? Balloons are, by nature, temporary items. Although Jenn & Co. uses only the finest quality balloons, some balloons will occasionally deflate sooner than expected and will also be adversely affected by the wind, rain, rough handling, heat, sunlight, and other uncontrollable factors. Here are some tips in planning your event and balloon decor.
It's time to showcase our balloon garland portfolio for your reference. Granted we have learned and tweaked our technique over the last year. And we still have more to learn.
