Bath Sundaes

How is this for a darling friend gift!! Simply beg, steal, borrow, or buy a plastic cup and dome lid from your local Starbucks. Then fill it about three-quarters of the way full with your choice of bubble bath or bath salts. (There are even several recipes out there for making your own if you'd rather.) Then place a small bath poof in a corresponding color on the top of the bubble bath, attach the dome lid, feed in a straw and top with a red "cherry" bath bead. Who wouldn't love to get one of these?

Thanks to my mom for the great idea...

It started snowing about 9:00 a.m. this morning and hasn't stopped since! The kids are all home from school, the base shut down, and we're all basking in the glorious white stuff. From the warmth of the house, that is.

Hi! You don't know me...but I LOVE your blog. I hope you don't mind me blog stalking you! I love these bath sundaes. #1 I had such a hard time finding cups. Starbucks had cups with the logo. Where did you find yours? Also, where did you find the red bath bead. I went to about 10 stores looking for them! Thanks!

Roxanne, I can't access your blog through your profile, so I hope that you are checking back here for your answers!! I found the cups at a local coffee shop...not a Starbucks, just a generic shop. I have also seen them at places like Costco. I hope that helps! Also, lots of times the logos on those plastic cups will rub off with a magic eraser. I haven't tried a Starbucks cup, but it has worked on other cups. The bath beads were at Wal-Mart, but I did find an online source and I'll put the link at the bottom of this comment. I hope this helps!!
