Take a Break: Make Decorations for the Super bowl/The Best Instant Hot Chocolate

 You can take the girl out of Baltimore, but you can’t take the “Bawlmer” out of the girl. Even though I’ve lived in Vermont for almost 25 years now, I still root for my home town team. GO RAVENS!!!!

With Super Bowl Sunday just days away, it’s time for some special preparation fun. Using your teams colors and logo try some of the following:

-       Pennants, using triangles made from paper or felt, and string them around the house Raven colors are black, gold and purple; 49’s are red and gold

-       Paper chains using appropriate colors.

-       Get some clear glassware from the Dollar Store and decorate with your favorite team’s colors or stencils.

-       Make stencils for your team. Use the stencils to decorate a cake, make a banner, decorate a T-shirt, using sidewalk chalk and make a special entrance for guests. Free Raven Stencils 

-       Make a ribbon wreath. Use a Styrofoam wreath form and use your choice of ribbon for the wreath. If using curling ribbon, put a number of strands together and then pin to the wreath form. For a “loop” wreath, cut the ribbon to sufficient length that it can easily be looped and pinned to the wreath foam. Decorate with footballs, little helmets etc.  
If the Super Bowl leaves you blah, consider making a batch of instant hot chocolate. Cooks Country, has come up with a rich and creamy version that you can use for gifts, serve at your sledding party (or Super Bowl) or enjoy through the remaining days of winter. This mixture will keep for three months, and if winter lasts that long in Vermont, I’m not going to be a happy camper. Consider giving some as a hostess gift the next time you go to a party.
