What if you knew someone close to you, who was celebrating a milestone birthday. You
know you could always go to the store and purchase a card that expresses your sentiments
to that person, or you could try what I did recently. I purchased a box of the Cinnabon
Cinnamon Rolls, that is now being marketed in all of our local grocery stores. The
instructions are easy and quick.
You just place the four ready to bake rolls unto a cookie sheet. Add the cinnamon mixture
on top of each roll, and bake.
When finished baking, you remove from the oven, and from the pan. You drizzle the
pouch of icing over the steaming hot rolls, and mission accomplished.
Then you take a plastic plate, or one of the cupcake pedestal plates that I recently purchased
at Marshall's Store.
A little less than 2.00 for each little glass pedestal plate. Quite a deal, especially since
they are so pretty!
Or you could purchase a pack of these clear plastic plates, from the party section of the
local Walmart Store, to place a cinnamon roll on.
One warm, gooey, scrumptious cinnamon roll fits perfectly on either
When cool, cover with plastic wrap, or place in a
clear cellophane bag.
less than most birthday cards today. After all, when you have a milestone birthday,
it is okay for you to treat yourself to a warm cinnamon roll and some coffee...right?
ps. The sticker on the card, is from the Dollar Tree.
Or, if you wanted to go another route other than a card, you could purchase one of these
pretty, sparkly, and festive battery lit candles instead. The battery is included, and the
cost is $ 1.00 at the local Dollar Tree. When you flip the tiny switch underneath the
candle, the light inside changes colors in a soft and calming manner. I also know for
a fact that the battery lasts a long time.
Wouldn't this look nice sitting on a co-worker's desk, as a
"Happy Birthday" wish? You could write a note and place it with the
Same candle when it changes to the blue.
you thought about them, in a way other than a card. And, if you really want to
be generous:), you can include another battery for when their battery stops
is not important. The fact that you thought of them, is what really counts. It
really makes me sad, when I hear people say that they don't get any cards on
their birthday. Birthdays are special, and acknowledging birthdays of those
in your immediate world, is important, in my book.
Another fun way to use these candles, would be to place one in the powder room of a
friend, when you visit them some evening. Flip the switch to "on", before you leave
their home. A tiny surprise at the end of a day, for any hostess...this pretty, simple
color changing candle.
Just a little something for you this evening...from me:).
