**THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED – WINNERS WILL BE ANNOUNCED SOON!**
We started a family tradition several years ago that the kids, I’m sure, will never let fade away. That tradition is Kids Movie Night on Friday nights. The four oldest will choose a movie and maybe a few new episodes of their favorite shows to watch. They’ll all hunker down in their chosen seats on the couch and clamor for popcorn and candy. Each child gets their own bowl of popcorn and a small helping of candy, either tossed directly into their popcorn bowl or in a small bowl on the side. This occurs every single Friday night without fail.
So the thought of mixing up their popcorn routine a little is very exciting for me and for them. That’s why when we had the opportunity to taste test the new line of Orville Redenbacher’s Flavors popcorn, I jumped at the chance. The line includes 3 flavors – Sea Salt & Vinegar, White Cheddar and Extra Cheese.
The kids sampled all flavors of the popcorn one Friday night with a huge amount of excitement. After all, this meant they got to have THREE (small) bowls of popcorn instead of their usual 1 large bowl. All of the flavors went over really well with Sea Salt & Vinegar being selected as the favorite of our 12 year old and myself and the other kids and my husband being torn between the 2 cheese flavors. The best part of the flavor showcase line is that the toppings come in an indvidual pouch so each person was able to add as much or as little seasoning to their bowls as they wanted.
As part of my assignment from Orville Redenbacher, I was able to put together a Halloween-themed gift basket to be given to a friend or family member of my choosing. I knew right away who I wanted to give a special gift to and couldn’t wait to start putting the basket together.
Our neighbors have had a tough year filled with family health crises and financial ups and downs. Yet through it all, they have been the kind of neighbors that you can only dream about. Let me explain to you just a few of the reasons why we are so fortunate to have them:
- They go out of their way to talk to our kids and will stop whatever they are doing to say hi to them.
- They welcome help from the kids, even when that “help” isn’t so helpful.
- They are always willing to lend a helping hand, whether it’s helping us to man a garage sale or chop down a tree.
- Their garden was overflowing this summer while ours was floundering and they freely shared their excess with us.
- They come over for dinner whenever invited, even though a dinner with 5 kids is much louder and rowdier than the peace they are used to enjoying with their meals.
Oh, and they love Halloween! Being able to create a gift basket filled with Halloween goodies and some delicious Orville Redenbacher’s Sea Salt & Vinegar popcorn was such a treat!
I choose some fun decorations for their home, since I know decorating for the holidays, both inside and outside, is one of their favorite things to do.
I added a fall bowl perfect for enjoying some popped popcorn along with a coordinating basket-style dish to hold their bags of popcorn. The basket was rounded off with some other small goodies, including Halloween dish towels, a Pumpkin scented candle, Pumpkin Spice coffee, hot chocolate, some extra sea salt and a fun candy corn candy dish.
It’s the perfect gift for the perfect neighbors!
