    Summer in Louisiana | June Lagniappe Box

     

    Is it officially summer in Louisiana if you haven’t had a snowball yet? We think not! That’s why your June Lagniappe Box is here to help you kick off your summer in the most Louisiana way possible! Ice cold snowballs and a box full of local goodies that will surely cool you down on those long hot humid days!

     

    Here’s what’s inside…

     

    First up, your new SFT “You Had Me At Sneaux Balls” tee! The original “snowball” dates all the way back to the Roman Empire where it was made of (you guessed it!) real snow and syrup. But the snowball we all know and love originated in New Orleans in the 1920s with hand ice-shavers creating the fluffy snow from blocks of ice.

    A man by the name of Ernest Hansen began working on an ice-shaving machine in the early 1930s. He invented the first motor-driven ice-shaving machine and took it to the streets of New Orleans in 1936. This is when the famous Hansen’s Sno-Bliz sno-ball was invented.

     

    Next up, since there’s no place like home in Louisiana, we included a festive summer print by Lane Grigas. “There’s Snow Place Like Cone” is our new summer motto! She’s based out of Hammond, Louisiana and her shop includes everything from photography, drawings and paintings.

    Going along with our summer snowball theme, we’ve included a Mango Stuffed Sno-Ball Bath Bomb to help you feel refreshed after long hot days! This handmade bath bomb by Crescent City Swoon is made with an intricate balance of mango nectar, wild currant, bergamot tea, island breeze, key lime, passionfruit, papaya and magnolia blooms. Talk about a summer party in your bath tub!! Plus, this bath bomb is stuffed with a surprise hidden color inside that bursts out as the bath bomb dissolves.

    Since we’re coming out of strawberry season and strawberry just happens to be one of our favorite snowball flavors, we included a little something extra that’s also strawberry flavored. Hanley’s Strawberry Vinaigrette is made right here in Louisiana. Try it on your spinach salad this summer or on a cream cheese log for parties -- it’s amazing!

    And you know what other fruit is huge this summer? Watermelon! Not only is watermelon a summer staple here in Louisiana, but it’s quite the trendy fruit all over! You may have seen it on clothing, accessories and more already this summer. Let’s just say the watermelon is the new pineapple. Thanks to Southern Deaux, based out of Baton Rouge, we’re including a watermelon sugar cookie!

    Finally, it’s not a Southern summer without monogrammed everything. BoersmaBags has included an exclusive voucher for a free monogram on their cooler bags (similar to the one photograghed). So whether you’re heading to the ballpark or having a picnic, you can keep your food and supplies feeling cool!

    May Lagniappe Box Patriotic Vibes

    Here at SFT, our Louisiana pride runs high, and since you're receiving the latest Lagniappe Box, we have a feeling that yours does too! We all know Louisiana is the best state, but heading into summer time, we not only want to show our love for Louisiana, but our patriotism for the whole US of A.

    May Lagniappe Box

    With Memorial Day in late May and Fourth of July, summer time is full of stars and stripes and red, white and blue -- any way we can show our love for America!

    We wanted to make sure you could show your patriotism and state pride with our May Lagniappe Box and enjoy your locally-made products all summer long.

    To kick off our summer, we've created our new Louisiana tee showcasing our state motto -- "Union Justice Confidence." This motto appears on our state flag, which is also blue like your tee. The blue color signifies both truth and hope, and how Louisiana is true to American ideals. ^ shirt will be available Tuesday, May 9th! 

    Whether you're headed to Bayou Country Superfest Memorial Day weekend, or celebrating Fourth of July in your hometown, you can take your new tee along on all your patriotic adventures across the state.

    To throw some additional patriotic vibes into your look, we've included glitter star earrings by JOcustomdesigns. These little studs are perfect for Fourth of July, Memorial Day or any military homecoming! They're handmade in Lake Charles!

    You'll also find a Navy Mom Candle by Riley's Room Candles. This navy candle is popular among families of the Navy to send prayers and well wishes to our sailors. Now, when you light your candle, you'll be able to remember and think of all those who have served for our country.

    (Prayer) May the Lord shine His love on our Navy Sons and Daughters and bless them and guide them each day and may the Lord bless each of us as we burn this candle in our home and in our hearts. If we can entrust them to the One who created them, we can be at peace because we know that He loves each of those Sailors, and we know how much we love and miss them. - Author Unknown

    Next up, it's not a Southern patriotic holiday without a cobbler! This Louisiana Fish Fry is made in just minutes. You can add your choice of fresh or canned fruit to the cobbler mix -- and it goes GREAT with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Serve this up at your Fourth of July party to please a hungry Southern crowd.

    Finally, chances are you'll be outside a lot Memorial Day weekend and Fourth of July, so we wanted to help you feel refreshed after long days at the lake or after nights spent at firework shows. Phresh (based out of Prairieville) has the perfect Oatmeal Milk & Honey Body Butter to do just that!

    Three Ways To Recycle Your Lagniappe Box

    In celebration of Earth Day this Saturday, April 22, today we are sharing three ways to recycle your Lagniappe Box!


    Our Lagniappe Box is a monthly subscription box that includes a brand new SFT t-shirt and locally-made Louisiana products. And we know you’re most excited about what’s IN the box, but turns out the boxes themselves can be quite handy!


    They’re fairly flat and easy to stack. They’d fit perfectly in a cabinet or on the top shelf of your closet -- without taking up unnecessary space.


    Pro tip: If you have multiple Lagniappe Boxes stacked in your closet or on a shelf, be sure to label them! Then you can easily grab what you need when the time comes.


    So whether you need the extra storage or just need to clear off all that junk mail from your counter tops when friends come over, keep your Lagniappe Boxes on hand each month!

    Three Ways To Recycle Your Lagniappe Box

    1- Store Photos

    We’re all guilty of saying we will one day scrapbook our last vacation or our kid’s third birthday party, but life happens and typically those things get pushed to the backburner. Keep all your photos organized by storing them in a Lagniappe Box. ONE day you will get around to finally scrapbooking all those memories and all your photos will be in one spot!

    2- Organize important documents

    We’re in the midst of tax season, and the Lagniappe Box has saved the day when it comes to storing invoices, receipts, and more. Store all your tax documents throughout the year, then you’ll have everything ready to go for the next tax season!

     

    3- Store crafts

    The Lagniappe Box makes the perfect storage for markers, crayons, colored pencils and whatever else you’ll need to entertain your kids. You can even fit paper in there! And the boxes are small enough that they’re easy to grab and go into the car for a long road trip.

    How do you recycle your Lagniappe Box? Share it with us on Instagram with #LagniappeBox and follow our NEW Lagniappe Box account at @lagniappebox!

With more than 400 festivals across the state, we know you have one or two (or ten!) on your calendar, so experience festival season your way with these local products!

And here in Louisiana, we celebrate all types of music with the Baton Rouge Blues Fest, New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, Natchitoches Jazz and R&B Festival and Lafayette’s Festival International de Louisiane -- just to name a few. From zydeco and blues to jazz and bayou boogie, we love it all! Now, you can wear the sounds of Louisiana festival season in your new SFT “Feel The Music” tee.

    With the long days in the sun, don’t forget your lip balm! We’ve got you covered with our Nola Soap Ponchatoula Strawberry Clear Lip Balm. Not only does it represent one of our favorite food festivals of the year, but the berry flavor is to die for! It’s made with skin nourishing cocoa butter, shea butter and coconut oil to make your lips kissably smooth!

    And speaking of food festivals, we’ve got one of those for everything! Gumbo, crawfish, boudin, seafood -- you name it! The Jambalaya Festival isn’t until May, so to hold you over, we’ve packed this Oak Grove Smokehouse Creole Jambalaya Mix. This authentic Louisiana dish can be created with minimum time and effort. Serve with garlic-buttered French bread and toss with a salad for a flavorful weeknight meal -- until it’s fest time again on the weekend!

    Next, staying true to Louisiana spring time flavors, we had to tie in even more of our official fruit -- the strawberry. And since Ponchatoula is the strawberry capital of the world, we picked the Swamp Pop Ponchatoula Pop Rouge to capture the essence of our local strawberry season! This soda is made next door in Lafayette with pure Louisiana cane sugar.

    Finally to bring you fresh scents, we handpicked this Plaquemine Lemon Scent Soap by the Louisiana Sunshine Soap Company. This is a clean, fresh lemony-scented soap with the creamy feel of goat’s milk. The beautiful natural yellow color comes from the addition of turmeric in the soap. The best part is it smells like lemon meringue pie!
