I work from home and sometimes it’s difficult to relax when your home office is calling your name.  A few weeks ago my husband informed me that I needed to take a break because I was working too hard.  Isn’t he sweet and doesn’t everyone work from 5 AM to 10 PM most days?  I decided, on the spot, to heed his advice and take a break with Snapple.  

Take a Break with Snapple Important benefits of taking breaks

  • Increased Lifespan
  • Greater Creativity
  • Less Burnout
  • Improves Productivity

If I can live longer and be more creative by taking more breaks, sign me up – ASAP!  And in order to make sure I continue to take the time to relax and recharge, I’ve added a couple of “me” moments to my daily list of things to do.

Since my favorite way to relax is reading, my breaks are spent on the porch with my latest book, sunglasses, a straw hat, and a well-chilled Snapple.


Stock Up on Snapple

Southern summers call for stocking up on Snapple!  We are the iced-tea capital of the world, you know.  And it just so happens that Walmart has 18.5 oz. Straight Up Tea and premium glass items on Rollback for $1.00.  Yes!

Summer Break with SnappleThe empty Snapple bottles make great vases just the way they are, but I decided to make an easy patriotic centerpiece.  It’s a good way to get the kids involved, too.  And since Snapple was kind enough to monogram their bottles with my initial (S for Smith!) :), I wanted to showcase that as well. We southerners love our monograms!

 Easy Patriotic Centerpiece

Sip Away with Snapple

You can find everything you need at Walmart, including the patriotic flowers.  I just snipped them apart with my little wire cutters.

Snapple It’s so easy to wrap the bottles in yarn.  You only need to use a dot of hot glue at the beginning and the end.

Snapple Bottle CraftThere’s a slight indention right under the “S” on the bottle and I used it as a guide.

Snapple Vase

My new patriotic vases are so cute and they’ll be the star of my 4th of July tablescape!  Speaking of patriotic, be sure and look for Lady LiberTEA when you’re stocking up on Snapple teas at Walmart.

Lady LiberTEA contains a blend of delicious black tea with RED raspberry, WHITE peach, and BLUEberry flavors.  This flavor is available in stores between May 1st through July 4th in 16 oz singles and six packs. Get it while it lasts!  Find more info at Snapple.com.

I’m all about taking a break, that’s for certain! Love your repurpose Patriotic centerpiece with the Snapple Bottles. I’m a big fan of repurposing. Those Snapple bottles were perfect, now I need some Snapple!

Snapple was one of my favorite drinks growing up. I always really enjoyed the fruity flavors. I enjoyed your centerpieces; they’re very unique!

That is such a cute way to upcycle the bottles! We do all need breaks! I need to go buy a snapple to remind me to take a break 🙂

I love the diet peach snapple. I do hope they bring more flavor chooses diet wise in my area.

I love Snapple. It’s so refreshing and delicious in the summer! My littlest one tried it recently and can’t stop asking for it.

Nancy June 20, 2015 - 1:49 am

Can you believe I have never had a snapple in my entire life? I think I was a teenager when it first came to the part of Canada where I was living. Lol.

Tiara June 20, 2015 - 7:02 am

My husband loves snapple. I have never had a snapple. I have never tried one but assumed they all tasted weird. I should give them a shot this summer!

Kathleen June 20, 2015 - 7:04 am

That is just so creative and it looks very effective. All that adds up to taking a great break. Thanks for sharing your creative ideas on the #HomeMattersParty

I could so use a break these days. I love snapple but haven’t had a tea in a while. Will have to pick some up next time I’m out.

desirae young June 20, 2015 - 11:34 am

We love Snapple here, although we haven’t had it in years. Love the new bottles and love your centerpiece.

Donna Ward June 20, 2015 - 6:05 pm

Wow! What a great idea – I would never have thought of the yarn around the bottle – and the beautiful flowers – I’ve always enjoyed Snapple and the glass jars being reused is a fab idea!

James Hills June 21, 2015 - 3:01 am

Those vases are really cute! I had no idea that Snapple had a new bottle – I sorta miss the old style bottle that they used to have but it’s still a great choice / excuse for taking a break!

Lynndee June 21, 2015 - 8:43 am

I don’t think I’ve ever tried Snapple. I’m going to check it out. And I totally agree with you – your patriotic vases are totally cute and very creative! Good job!

Michellette "MimiCuteLips" Green June 21, 2015 - 10:11 am

That is a really cute creative idea. I’m a big time tea drinker, I’m talking daily. During the summer we try to get out and spend as much time outdoors as possible. The kids want water/beach all the time.

Michelle @ Dishes and Dust Bunnies June 21, 2015 - 10:26 am

I love this idea! Snapple has always been one of my favorite summer time drinks. 🙂

Yolanda Williams June 21, 2015 - 3:25 pm

I work from home and I can definitely related to the hours. I also love snapple. I think it’s the best drink ever. Great Post!

Jessica Simms June 21, 2015 - 10:31 pm

I love snapple! There are so many choices you can choose from it’s hard to just choose one. I really like this craft and think my kids would love doing it this summer.
