Kick-Off Backyard Fun with Off!

This week I get the pleasure to host an event with OFF! Insect Repellents and DIY Network’s Jeanne Benedict with some of my favorite blogger friends here in Tampa!

The event will be themed around backyard fun and gearing up for the Fourth of July, which many of us are doing! It will be at the beautiful Tampa Bay Garden Club, and we get the opportunity to learn how to help keep unwanted mosquitoes away from our families and friends, and how to spice up our Fourth of July parties!

At the event, we will get the opportunity to socialize and discuss our upcoming Fourth of July plans, vacations and family activities! And just like Off ClipOn American Flagme, we all want to leave inspired for the Fourth of July and find better ways to help protect our families and friends from unwanted mosquitoes.

Jeanne will be demonstrating the decorations we will be working on! We will kick things off by creating a floral masterpiece with red, white and blue flowers and spice them up with additional decorations (stay tuned to see my creations!). We will also be working on invitations and table decorations. OFF! Insect Repellents* help protect our party guests and family members from mosquitos at Fourth of July get-togethers. A great option for those of you that will be relaxing this holiday is the OFF! Clip-On, which comes in great decorative designs – including an American Flag design! This personal insect repellent doesn’t have to be applied directly to the skin, and with its battery powered fan it creates head-to-toe protection for up to 12 hours. If you’re hosting a party, try using OFF!® Bug Control Backyard Pretreat which offers both a spray and stream option to allow you to quickly and easily spot-treat your backyard against mosquitoes before the event.  OFF!® Bug Control Backyard Pretreat last up to 8 weeks when used according to directions.

Now that I am feeling inspired to host a Fourth of July party, I think it is time to get outside and start preparing!
