Place card holders are an essential decor piece at any formal event, from weddings to bridal showers, even baby showers these days! These simple and chic glitter place card holders are a unique alternative to your basic frame-style place card holder.

This inexpensive and creative option can be personalized by using various flowers, colors and patterns!

Supplies:

  • Gold Glitter Paper
  • Clothespins

  • Scissors
  • Hot glue gun
  • Scissors
  • Pen

Directions:

1.) Start by tracing your clothespin onto the back of your glitter paper. We chose glitter paper to avoid getting any excess glitter in our glasses, but you could easily exchange the glitter paper for loose glitter instead!

2.) Next cut out the traced paper, leaving you with the perfect size strip of glitter paper.

Sesame Red Cabbage Salad Recipe

by Jillian Leslie on

sesame-red-cabbage-salad-recipe-title

Now that it's football season (and we're excited at our house), we were asked by Hebrew National to come up with a dish that would work great at a tailgater. That's why we came up with our tangy sesame red cabbage salad recipe.

This salad can work as an easy side dish or as a topping on your Hebrew National hotdogs. What makes this salad so yummy is that it's got boldness from the apple cider vinegar, crunch from the cabbage, and nuttiness from the sesame seeds. It's adds a real bite to the smoky, saltiness of the hotdog, and because they're Hebrew National hotdogs, you know you're getting only 100% pure kosher beef, no artificial flavors, colors, fillers or byproducts.

Serve it like I did, right along with your Hunt's Ketchup and Gulden's Mustard and let your guests have a ball (I had to!).

SESAME RED CABBAGE SALAD RECIPE

Ingredients:
  • 1 head red cabbage
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 2/3 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
Directions:

Cut the cabbage into quarters, then cut out the core. Chop into ~1 inch pieces.

sesame-red-cabbage-salad-recipe-5

In a large mixing bowl, add the oil, vinegar, sugar, lemon juice, sesame oil, and salt. Stir until combined. Thoroughly stir in the cabbage, cover, and refrigerate for at least 12 hours.

When you are ready to serve, add the sesame seeds.

And for more great tailgating ideas, check out this video from Natalie from Mint Love Social Club.

With grilling season upon us, everyone is craving an all-American hot dog. What makes a kosher hot dog different? It's all about what makes the cut (and what doesn't). Hebrew National is choosy about what goes into their franks – only 100% pure kosher beef so you know what you’re getting and they taste great. No artificial flavors, colors, fillers or byproducts. #greatergrilling
