Breaking Dawn Hype... via Pinterest

I admit to being a Twi-hard, at one point in time. That was until I got to the last book in the series. Breaking Dawn was and always will be my LEAST favorite book. For one, I dislike Edward, not saying I am all team Jacob; I just can't see being with someone as controlling and old fashioned as Edward; give me Jasper or Emmett any day!! And really, who in their right mind has an almost grown man "imprint" on an infant?
But enough about why I don't like the book.. I of course will be going to see Breaking Dawn Part 1 a few weeks after it comes out ( I NEVER brave premier night), and really, I've seen all the other movies, so I have to finish it out. So in sticking with the hype for the upcoming movie (11*18*11), I thought I would share some of my most recent Pinterest finds.

Party Beans Personalized Party Favors #Review

As we are technically still planning our wedding ( 2/28/14) we are adamant about getting everything together before there is a year left. So as we all know, getting favors at the reception is the greatest. I however, don't want to give something that won't really be used again or at all, so in my search for the perfect favor I ran across Party Beans, which is one of the few places I have found that makes Personalized Gifts and Party Favors. If you aren't like me and planning a wedding, they still have some great items for you. They offer Wedding Favors, Birthday Favors, Baby Shower Favors and much more.

Given the opportunity to test out their service I decided on the 6 oz Glass Jar ($16.99 each), yeah, it's a little high, but with adding the candy ( mints or m&m;'s) and the printing on the jar lid, I'm pretty sure you couldn't get a better deal somewhere else. Since we are having a candy buffet during the reception, I figured that the M&M;'s were the obvious choice, plus it plays on our initial (Melissa & Marco). We already have our colors picked out and they match a set of purple M&M;'s that I got out of the Easter M&M;'s. So with all of that in mind, I set out to get the picture and our initials on the jar lid.

The ordering process was easy, as was the set up of my design. When it came time to pay, there were some problems encountered with paypal, but they were fixed super fast. Navigating the different favor options is easy, they are right at the top of your screen. You can upload your own clipart/design as I did or you can use any of the ones they have available on the site.
Although I had a wonderful experience, I won't be ordering the Glass Jar for the reception. I am thinking something a little more along the lines of the premium tin they offer, just because of the price and the amount of guests we will have.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
