Line a walkway, edge a flower bed or fill a planter with these unique acrylic glow in the dark pebbles. After being exposed to daylight, these pebbles glow (yellow green)in the dark and the glow lasts approximately two to three hours after full sun exposure. Do you want your garden or yard to look different from your neighbors' at night? Get these here.... and you won't regret!
Really cute idea from accenttheparty.com
Here’s what you need:
Green, pink and yellow (or any color) tissue paper and
Evergreens and acorn tops.
1. Find evergreens and acorn tops outside. Spread them out and dry.
2. Blow up the balloons to the size of bowl you want to make. Cut a length of jute and tie it around the end of the balloon.
3. Cut the green tissue paper into long, thick strips. Cut the other colors into smaller pieces. Take the glue and water it down just a little bit to make it easier to spread. Start by wrapping a few pieces of green around the balloon and gluing them down, mix the other colors in, then start layering the green on to make a bowl around the balloon.
4. Once you get through a few layers, start adding in the evergreens and acorns, wrapping the green tissue paper and glue it down.
5. After you’ve got enough layers, hang the balloon in a window overnight to dry.
6. The next day, take the balloons down and carefully pop the balloon, peeling it out of the bowl. Take the jute off of the top of the balloon.
7. Punch holes in either side of the bowl near the top and string the jute through them.

Yield: 2 mojitos
Recipe Note: If you do not feel like pureeing your blueberries, just add them to the shaker and smash them with your muddler. It's faster, just not as pretty of an end result.
1 cup fresh blueberries, plus extra for garnish
4 oz clear rum
10 fresh mint leaves
2 teaspoons sugar
juice of 2 limes
6 oz club soda
In a food processor or blender, puree blueberries until smooth. Set aside.
Add mint leaves and sugar to a cocktail shaker. Use a muddler (or the end of a wooden spoon) to muddle the mint and sugar. Add the lime juice, rum and pureed blueberries: shake vigorously.
Pour ice and club soda into two tall glasses and then pour in rum mixture. Gently stir. Garnish with a lime wedge, extra blueberries and a sprig of mint. Serve immediately.
