 Christmas Gifts Of Joy

Christmas Lights Shine Warm and Bright

Christmas lights as bright and shiny as the holiday season itself. Filled with faith, hope, family and love. Lights on trees. Christmas lights on homes and wreaths and filling the stores in colors from traditional red and green to sparkling white and glitter everywhere.

 Cats and Dogs Pets Are Family Too

Families gather around the Christmas lights from the day they go up until the day they come down. The warmth of the glow makes everyone love the holiday lights. In our home cats and dogs and well, pets are family too.

 Christmas Ornaments and Home Decorating

Christmas lights inside and outside. On the roof, on the trees, in the garden and around the doors and windows. Cozy inside, beautiful outside. We love to drive around during the holiday season just to see how everyone decorates.

 Personalized Christmas Gifts To Brighten Your Holiday

Wreaths with ribbons, snowflakes and ornaments my favorite Christmas wreaths light up, sparkle and welcome this beautiful family season.

 Wishing You A Very Merry Christmas From Bonfire Designs

I hope every Merry Christmas glows beautiful and bright. I wish you happy smiles, wonderful memories made and shared. I wish you health, happiness and a bright New Year.

Christmas Hanukkah Interfaith Family Holidays

Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah

Christmas and Hanukkah are both beautiful holidays bringing together family and friends, dinners and parties, rejoicing and faith. They both offer a great opportunity to do some serious shopping and get some great bargains. They both are all about presents and gifts, home decorations and some wonderful family recipe holiday cooking.
Happy Hanukkah and Merry Christmas greetings are rooted in religion and steeped with tradition. It is a wonderful, glittery, hopefully happy time of the year and many families enjoy celebrating both holidays!
Families today are no longer only traditionally one religion, one color or one ethnicity. Today more than ever people are free to love who they choose and not just have to stay within the traditional values of someone of their own "kind". Years ago, many young people were disowned or outcast from their families if they chose to marry or raise their children different than their birth heritage.
Interfaith families are no longer rare and no longer taboo. Some families choose one of the religions to raise their children in, some parents choose to expose their children to both religions and let them learn and enjoy the teachings and holidays of both Chanukah and Christmas.
Families who celebrate both religions get to decorate beautiful Christmas Trees, light bright, shiny Menorahs and respect the miracles of both religions that are so different and yet so similar. Miracles of life, standing up for what you believe in, protecting and nurturing family and friends. Believing and having faith in believing.

Decorating for Christmas and Hanukkah Holidays
Christmas Hanukkah time
Decorating is almost the best part of the holiday season so why not dress up the whole house with Christmas Trees, Hanukkah Menorahs, Stars and Lights and decorations for every room in the house!
When it's time to decorate for the holidays, enjoy the fun of both traditions and deck the halls with everything for the family.

Holiday Greetings

Merry Christmas Happy Hanukkah Greetings
Sending Christmas and Chanukah greetings to families who celebrate both holidays is even easier than ever now. I mean you always could send Season's Greetings and A Happy New Year, or you can send cards and gifts that feature the traditional symbols personalized for family and friends.

Hanukkah Christmas Stockings

Hanukkah Christmas Stocking
Christmas stockings are so much for adults and for little ones. Who doesn't love the goodies inside whether it is Hanukkah gelt (chocolate coins in gold foil) or Christmas stocking stuffers - small gifts that are just fun and all about family and joy.

Christmas Lights....For Hanukkah!

Who doesn't love decorating their house with Christmas lights! Strings of lights twinkling, greeting and welcoming the holiday spirits. Some people love colors, some icy white. Lights outside the house, around the windows, hanging from the roof and the trees and the bushes. Christmas lights inside the home. Whether you live in a mansion, a trailer, a private home or small apartment there is always lots of room for Christmas decorations especially beautiful lights.
Now you can add some fun Hanukkah glow to your Christmas lights with light stings of dreidels, Menorahs that glow and decorations that will really show off your family love of both holidays.

Hanukkah and Christmas Jewelry

We love to show pride in our heritage and now interfaith families don't have to choose between wearing a Jewish Star or a Religious Cross, or nothing at all, they can choose from some of these great Cross and Star of David necklaces, charms, rings and pins.

Words Matter Let Some Go

Words Matter because words mean thoughts, words mean intentions, words mean a plan. Depending on who uses them, words can mean nothing.

How many times in life have we learned it's not necessarily whether you are right or wrong in your actions and what you say, but it's also important how you use the words and how you present yourself.

The same actions can make you look angry, aggressive and unreasonable but with the right expressions, the right explanations and how you present yourself those actions can be seen as heroic, thoughtful and caring.

 Make Your Words Count

Sometimes all the words in your head stand for all the millions of things you have to do. Work, family, bills, school, homes, did I mention bills! It can be overwhelming and some days it's better to let some of the words go, take a break. 

Put the words into another paragraph to work on later. Take some time and use words like love, fun, relax, hug and eventually of course that one big word will come back around... reality.

Sometimes it's easier to tackle reality after taking a break!

Beach In The Fall

The beach in the Fall is perfect. In Florida. I always loved the beach in every season before I moved down South but now I have discovered I must be solar powered. There is nothing like the ocean, the sand, the amazing sea shells, the sky, the overwhelming feeling that you can leave everything behind and just look out on the horizon that goes on forever..... for just a little while at least.

Fall Brunch Trays

Fall Brunch Tray

Fall Brunch Tray complete with fall theme tray, berries and cream, mini pancakes and spinach pie for a delicious light assortment of family fun
Fall brunch trays are our favorite especially on the weekends. Actually brunch trays on the weekend every season are our favorite. Halloween may be over but Fall is still going strong. Even here in the south, as opposed to up north in NJ we may not be celebrating the beautiful colors of leaves changing but we are happy to welcome temperatures no longer in the lava degrees of 90’s (feels like 107°!), palm trees swaying with store bought beautiful Fall Mums placed under them, pumpkins and autumn displays in the garden and in the house and of course, baking and cooking everything pumpkin we can.
Brunch on our weekends whenever possible is a gathering of the family and a selection of easy to make, easy to eat, easy to clean foods that aren’t breakfast, lunch or dinner but a combination of whatever surprises and favorites we can fit on the tray Click Here For The Full Fall Brunch Tray Story....

Life Is Good With Coffee

Life is good and coffee mugs filled with the first steaming cup of coffee through my last hot cup of coffee makes it even better.  I am a coffee lover morning through night.  It doesn't keep me up and I can't say it is the caffeine I need, I just love the taste of coffee.  I think better with a cup of coffee in my hand.  Sitting in my kitchen, working in my office or just taking a ride - a mug of coffee is probably right near by.

The only thing I love more than coffee, are the fun coffee mugs I buy.  Some make a statement, some are decorative and some are just cute and make me smile.  

 Personalized Coffee Mugs

Smile on, life is good.  Enjoy a cup of happy at least once a day.  If coffee isn't for you, then grab a cup of tea, a mug of hot chocolate and marshmallows and put a happy face on your mug.

Fall Autumn Harvest Colors

Fall, autumn, harvest, pumpkins, beautiful leaves and trees.  A chill in the air.  Jeans and hoodies everyday. What could make this time of the year more beautiful?  Oh I know, Halloween and Thanksgiving.  Pumpkin picking and hayrides with the family.  Decorating silly pumpkin faces, sharing candy corn days before anyone says Trick or Treat.  All followed by Thanksgiving coming up in just a few weeks.  What more could you ask for - more time maybe.  A longer Fall season would be great.  Greetings to a great new season ahead.

Bluetooth Speakers Great Gift Ideas

Electronic deals my favorites are the bluetooth speakers that connect easily to your iPhones, iPads, laptops and they sound great.  Small bluetooth speakers and major electronic bass ones are all over my house.  No technical skill necessary, these guys are so easy and fun.  I bring them outside in the backyard for summer fun.  Have one in my bathroom for shower time of course.  Living room bluetooth sounds amazing.  And they are available in every size and shape and style now, not to mention range from seriously price friendly to the more expensive, just like everything else we love to buy.  Lots of them come with speaker phones also, so if a phone call comes in, you can just speak through the speaker - it's awesome.

Here's some portable bluetooth speakers that are fun:

I love holidays and Halloween is the friendliest holiday of the year in my home because decorating is so much fun.  Every year I add some new cute treats to my home decor whether it is adorable ghosts and cats on candy dishes or cupcake liners, serving trays with candy corn I just love all the bowls and jars and signs that kick off the end of year holiday season.

Graduation Gifts With Class

Graduation from school is a milestone in time in everyone's life, starting with adorable graduation ceremonies from pre-school and kindergarten to tear filled eyes at high school and college grad formal receptions.  It's a time of celebration looking towards the future, a time of reflection remembering back to our youth and how far we have come. 
Graduation gifts can reflect not only the age and grade of the student, but also the personality and dream for their futures whether they are graduating from public school or medical school.
