pumpkinbread1 Jump into Fall with PMall!Here at PMall, we can’t get enough of all of the yummy seasonal recipes that the fall season brings and of course all of the beautiful colors that nature creates during this time of year.

Before we get started on ideas for enjoying those beautiful fall colors around your home, we thought we’d share an awesome fall recipe that we saw on Pinterest. Everyone knows that the two big flavors of the fall season are apples and pumpkins … that’s why we suggest drinking a nice warm apple cider while you enjoy this Peekaboo Pumpkin Pound Cake (at left) that looks almost too pretty to eat (Click the link to be directed to SheKnows.com for the full recipe)!

The combination of pumpkin bread and pound cake would be delicious enough, but this recipe also includes a brown butter pecan icing that’s out of this world! One slice of this tasty treat is sure to give you a boost of energy to help you stay warm during the crisp fall air.

Though it may be hard to admit after seeing this recipe, there is more to fall than just pumpkin flavoring. For us, it’s all about the warm, rich colors that the fall season brings! Our favorite thing to do during this time of year is to see all of the leaves change into deep shades of red and orange and fall off the trees. We love the colors of fall so much, we’ve come up with some great Fall Decorations that will help you enjoy those beautiful colors around your home, too!

blogflag1 300x300 Jump into Fall with PMall!The Autumn Hues Monogram Personalized Garden Flag, one of our customers’ favorite fall gifts, has a design filled with leaves, acorns, pine and berries featured in vibrant colors.

That’s right – owls are the hottest new trend for all things babies and baby nurseries.

It’s pretty easy to see why they’ve become so popular … just take a look at this cute birth announcement photo we saw on Pinterest and try not to say “awww!”

Pack a Fun School Lunch with these Great Tips!

nokidhungry Pack a Fun School Lunch with these Great Tips!It’s Back to School season and PersonalizationMall.com is having a huge sale on all of our personalized back to school gear!

We have a wide selection of Personalized Lunch Totes designed for teens and pre-teens and Personalized Lunch Bags that feature cute designs for younger kids in grade school but since the teens and pre-teens may be too old for “cute” lunches, we thought we’d focus today’s tips on the younger kids’ lunches.

The best part about personalizing our adorable Personalized Lunch Bags is that for every bag purchased, $1.00 goes to the charity No Kid Hungry. Every dollar that’s donated helps the No Kid Hungry campaign start or improve school breakfast programs, recruit and expand summer meals sites and teach families how to shop for and cook healthy meals on a limited budget. Since the summer of 2011, No Kid Hungry efforts have helped bring more than 34 million additional meals to kids who need them and they continue to engage the public to make ending childhood hunger a national priority.

butterflybag 150x150 Pack a Fun School Lunch with these Great Tips!butterflysandwich 150x150 Pack a Fun School Lunch with these Great Tips!Now that you know all about the No Kid Hungry campaign, lets look at these cute lunch ideas! It’s easy to see why the Butterfly Embroidered Lunch Bag (at left) is one of our customers’ favorites. The bright and colorful bag features an adorable butterfly design that can be personalized with any name right on the front so her delicious lunch won’t be mistaken as anyone else’s. It is fully insulated to keep food both warm and cold and has two compartments for storing extra goodies. Moms especially love all of these bags because they’re made of a durable and washable material that makes clean-up nice and easy! If your little girl loves butterflies this lunch bag is perfect for her and the only thing that would make it more perfect is if you filled her new personalized lunch bag with this cute butterfly sandwich (right) that we saw on Pinterest! All you have to do is make her favorite sandwich and use a heart-shaped cookie cutter to create the butterfly’s wings. Add a carrot for the body and raisons for the eyes and you’re done!

And if your son is going to have a dinosaur lunch bag, then you should give him a dinosaur sandwich! This dinosaur sandwich is probably the coolest one we saw on Pinterest. Once you’ve used a dinosaur cookie cutter to make the shape of the sandwich, break off the tips of their chips and stick them on the dinosaurs back to create edible spikes! Your little guy will have a blast showing all of his friends the cool lunch his mom made!

owl lunchbox 150x150 Pack a Fun School Lunch with these Great Tips!owlsandwich1 150x150 Pack a Fun School Lunch with these Great Tips!Owls are the hot new trend and if your little girl is up on the latest fashion, she’ll love the Sweet Owl Embroidered Lunch Bag (at left). Just like the other bags, we will embroider her name on the front of the bag, next to the pink and yellow flower design.

The owl’s big eyes are easy to imitate for your little one’s lunch (see the photo example at right). Just add two slices of cucumber and two raisons to the top of the sandwich, cut out a carrot for the nose and use a knife to create the wings. You can use the leftover cucumber to form cute flowers or add pretzel sticks to create a tree!

ladybuglunchbox 150x150 Pack a Fun School Lunch with these Great Tips!ladybugsandwich 150x150 Pack a Fun School Lunch with these Great Tips!Last but not least we have the Ladybug Embroidered Lunch Bag, which your little “lovebug” is sure to love! Once you’ve added her name to the front of the bag, you can fill it with her favorite sandwich that you will turn “inside out” so it becomes a ladybug! Build her favorite sandwich and cut around the bread so it takes a circular shape. Then take the cheese out from between the two slices of bread and place it on top. Cut little circles out of the cheese or use swiss cheese and you’ll have formed the perfect ladybug wings!

We hope you enjoyed all of these fun lunch tips! We’d love to hear any tips you may have or we’d love to see any of your own personal fun lunch creations! Post them in the comment section below or send them to social@pmall.com.

Keep the Kids Cool with a “Drive-In” Movie at Home!

drive in theater1 Keep the Kids Cool with a Drive In Movie at Home!Now that August is here, the summer heat is starting to take its toll and your kids may be looking for ways to take a break from the sun.

Luckily we just saw this photo (at left) on Pinterest and have great way for you and your family to beat the heat – by having your own “Drive-In Movie” inside your home!

The “Not Just a Housewife” blog came up with the awesome idea to turn cardboard boxes into cars and place them in front of the TV so the kids feel like they’re actually at a drive-in movie theater! It’s a great way to get the kids’ “creative juices” flowing all while escaping the summer sun and spending quality family time together!

As you can see from the blog post (click the “Not Just a Housewife” link above to be directed to the full blog post), all you have to do is take a cardboard box and have the kids decorate it to look like any type of car they’d like! The blog post suggests covering the boxes with colored or patterned duct tape so that the cardboard becomes more durable and lasts for more than one movie, but if you don’t have any colored duct tape on hand, feel free to just let the kids use crayons or markers to decorate the boxes with their own artwork. Don’t forget to attach paper plates for the car’s wheels for an extra cool effect!

Once everyone has created their own cars, place them in a straight line on the ground in front of the TV and decide what movie everyone would like to watch.

Now that you have the movie picked out there’s only one thing left to do – gather up some movie snacks!

blogpopcornbowl1 Keep the Kids Cool with a Drive In Movie at Home!Movie snacks wouldn’t be complete without popcorn, and with the Old-Fashioned Red Popcorn Bowl Set everyone can have their own bowl to hold onto in each of their “cars.” You can personalize the large bowl with your family name or any message you’d like for just $39.95 and the small bowls can be purchased individually for only $9.95 each. We love the old-fashioned look to the bowl and our Old Fashioned Four Seasoning Popcorn Party Set that you can also purchase for just $12.95. The personalized bowls are high quality so you can feel free to use them for more than popcorn on family movie nights. They can be used for all of your dining and entertaining needs, including using them as salad bowls when you’re hosting a dinner party or to serve other types of snacks when you have company.

cashbox Keep the Kids Cool with a Drive In Movie at Home!If your kids are a little older, you can also create a learning experience for them by creating a little concession stand in your kitchen.

Have them work on their handwriting and spelling by creating a poster board that shows a menu with the different types of snacks and the cost of each item. Use the My Private Stash Personalized Cash Box as the cash register and have your kids take turns being the concession stand worker.

Whoever plays the concession stand worker takes their siblings’ popcorn, candy and drink orders and using play money, will use the math skills they learned during the school year to figure out how much change they need to give back to each of their customers! You can choose a pink or blue cash box and have it personalized with any 2 lines across the top and your kids can use it for all sorts of future make-believe games or to hold their allowance. The cash boxes usually cost $24.95 but if you act fast, you can personalize them now while they’re on sale for just $18.70!

blogblankets Keep the Kids Cool with a Drive In Movie at Home!Once everyone has their snacks and the concession stand is “closed,” have everyone climb into their cars and tuck each of them in with a Personalized Sweatshirt Blanket so they can be comfy and cozy in their little “cars.” Since they’re in individual cars they probably won’t be able to share a blanket, but with our wide selection of Personalized Blankets you’ll have no problem finding the perfect design for boys and girls of all ages, no matter what their favorite hobbies or interests are. The kids will stay warm and comfortable in their cardboard boxes and the blankets can help prevent any sticky candy from falling onto your carpet (after all it’s a lot easier to throw a blanket in the wash, than it is to try and get a sugary stain out of your family room carpet)! The blankets will be great for the drive-in movie night, but your kids will also be able to use them for years to come, especially when they go on sleepovers, road trips or just when they’re sitting on the couch watching TV or doing their homework.

When everyone is ready, dim the lights and start the movie!

The homemade drive-in movie theater is a win-win for everyone. The kids are happy that they get to cool off and watch a movie and the parents are happy that the kids are using their creativity, math skills (without even realizing it) and spending quality time together. It’s not only a great way to beat the heat, it’s also a great way to make an unforgettable memory that your family will cherish forever!
