Congratulations to Rhonda J Elfstrand - the winner of PMall.com’s Side Dishes That Steal The Show Recipe Contest!
Rhonda submitted her recipe for the tasty and popular Strawberry Pretzel Salad which turned out to be our favorite!
Here is the winning recipe:
“Mix 2 cups of crushed pretzels, 2 tablespoons of sugar, and 1/2 cup of melted butter and then press into the bottom of 9×13 pan. Bake for 10 minutes at 400 degrees and allow the crust to cool completely before making the middle and top layers. Then beat 8 ounces of cream cheese and 1 cup of sugar until smooth. Fold in 8 ounces of Cool Whip until it is all incorporated. Spread the mixture evenly (beware the loose crumbs of the crust) on the cooled crust. For the top layer sprinkle 6 ounces of stawberry Jello on 2 cups of near boiling water into a large bowl and stir well. Carefully add 10-16 ounces of frozen strawberries and stir until Jello is slightly thickened (the frozen strawberries do a “quick set” of the Jello). Pour the mixture evenly over the middle layer, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until needed – at least two hours.”
This side dish has always been one of our favorites and we were so thankful that Rhonda shared it with all of us!
Thank you to all of our fans who submitted their favorite side dish recipes! Keep checking back here for the latest news and contests from PersonalizationMall.com!
We always feel bad for the stuffing, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, etc. … it’s almost as if we can picture the side dishes looking at the beautiful turkey and saying, “Marsha, Marsha, Marsha!”
But not this year!

Thank you for sharing all your sweet stories with PersonalizationMall.com … don’t forget to share them with your grandparents on Grandparents Day, which is coming up on September 9th.
It wasn’t easy, but we were able to select our 3 contest winners! Congratulations to Ryan Zahara, Maria Mahaffey and Brittany Addison who have been selected as our 1st, 2nd and 3rd-place winners!
Ryan has won the 12×18 Photo Sentiments Canvas with the following entry that he wrote about his grandparents, Zeke and Charlotte Clark:
“A grandparent is a special gift. The memories of countless books read, racing Hot Wheels on the carpet for hours, running through the grass with Papa’s dog, baking cookies with Grandma, having sleepovers so Mom and Dad could have a break, drawing lessons from Papa and endless encouragement. Grandparents are like second parents, your second home away from home, with two people that love you just as much as your parents do, with added experience.”
Maria Mahaffey won a Photo Sentiments Table Top Canvas for Josephine and Anthony Pisoni with the following creative entry:
“G-ive me unconditional love
R-est my head on their shoulders to comfort me
A-re there to play with me every day to make sure I’m safe while Mommy and Daddy go to work
N-eed nothing but smiles to make me happy
D-on’t waste a single moment with me because they know nothing is as important as family”
And finally, Brittany Addison is the winner of the Photo Sentiments Coffee Mug thanks to the following entry that she wrote for her Patricia Addison:
“My grandma is grand because she is FUN! Grandma played waitress with us even though we asked for the same sandwich every day (cut into “fishy” shapes). She let us put barrettes in her hair and even went in public with her new ‘do! She played spinning tops and even made up her own games for us. We love her!”
Congratulations to all our winners and thanks again for everyone who entered the contest. Make sure you keep checking back here for new contests and enjoy your Grandparents Day!

The adorable mischievous monkey is capturing the hearts of a whole new generation and PMall.com is here to help you throw the perfect Curious George birthday party that your little ones will love!
Thanks to this incredible theme cake we found on Pinterest and our new line of Curious George® Personalized Gifts, we were inspired to put together this party theme and share some ideas for party accessories, birthday gifts and some cute party tricks to help you plan a successful party!
Whether the party is for your baby who loves watching the Curious George cartoons or for your older child who likes to read the Curious George books – we’ve got great ideas that Curious George fans of all ages will love!
Our Curious George® Personalized Invitations feature the title “Calling All Curious Monkeys” and can be personalized with your child’s age and six lines of text which can include all of the important details including the name, date, time and location of the celebration and any other optional details you choose! These cute cards are sold in sets of 24 and include coordinating crisp, white envelopes for mailing.
Once the special day finally arrives, decorate your home or party location with the Curious George® Personalized Party Banner so you can continue the party theme and let guests know exactly where to go for the party! The banner can be personalized with their age and name and is made from heavy duty vinyl so it can be used whether it’s an indoor or outdoor party!
Outside-of-the-gift-box Party Tip: The banner can also be used as a unique guest book! Leave out a permanent marker and have guests sign their names and leave messages for the Birthday Boy or Girl. It makes a great keepsake that they’ll love looking back at for years to come!
Another great way to keep the party theme alive is to incorporate George’s friend The Man With The Yellow Hat into the place settings like they did in this photo (at right) that we came across on Pinterest.
These place settings are easy to put together, won’t cost you anything extra (since you’ll already need plates and cups for the party) and are perfect for the Curious George theme! After you’ve purchased yellow cups and plates, take the yellow cups and tape or glue a line of black construction paper around the top of the cup. If you’d like, you can even write down each guests name on the black “belt” so they know where their cup is at all times! Flip the cup over and place it in the center of the plate and that’s it – you have the yellow hat!
As for the food, prepare their favorite meal (after all, it is their birthday!), but we also suggest incorporating bananas. This is a great way to stick to the theme while also offering your guests a healthy snack! Either place one banana at each of the place settings or hang a bunch and use as a centerpiece for your table and have guests take them as they please!
When it comes time for your little one to open their birthday presents, make sure you’ve wrapped up one of our Curious George® Gifts, such as a personalized sweatshirt, pillowcase, growth chart, picture frame and much more!
Personalize a Curious George® Poster for each of the kids to take home and hang up in their rooms! You get to choose from 4 different Curious George designs (George riding a bike, playing on his ball, flying a kite or hanging out in his room with toys) and personalize the posters with each of the guests’ names in 1 of 3 sizes! They will have had so much fun at the party and love the personalized touch to their goodie bag so much they won’t want to leave!
And there you have it – the perfect Curious George Birthday Party!
Don’t forget to use proper party etiquette and thank your guests – the Curious George® Personalized Thank You Cards would be perfect! If you have any tips or ideas for throwing a Curious George Birthday Party we’d love to hear them so please be sure to comment below.
