I mean really….who doesn’t love a party?  Whether it’s an impromptu Friday night get together with pizza, or a fancy schmancy holiday shindig…Garnish has everything you need to celebrate!



We admit, we kinda got this idea from the talk show “Live With Kelly and Michael”.  When they do their host chat and trivia questions, they have these confetti sticks that they toss.  Well, you don’t actually throw the stick, just shake it to get the confetti out.  We Garnished it up, of course, using our clear candy tubes.  We used some fun colored sequins that we found in a big tub at the craft store.  We then got out our craft punch and metallic markers and made some tags.  Finally we used rubber bands to attach the tags.  Rubber bands are great because they don’t fall off.  It would be awesome if you could find metallic ones (and if you do, let us know where!).  Now you’re all set for sparkly fun times!

Let’s just say…when we were six, we would of loved this party!  Christen is a very creative Mom to three boys,  and this ice cream sundae station looks super fun!

Christen used our ripple no soup for you bowls for the ice cream, and the contessa containers to hold all of the toppings.  For the birthday party favors, Christen jazzed up our small kraft gable boxes.  Check out the full post here on her blog.  Thanks so much for sharing Christen.

How do you Garnish…show us how :-)

In case you were wondering…our new Bowl Me Over bowls are oven proof!  We baked up some funfetti cupcakes in the 6oz bowls, and they turned out great.



Just a note, these were in a 350F oven for 25 minutes.  They bowls did not discolor or brown in any way, but if you are going to use a warmer oven, be sure to keep an eye on them while they bake.

To make ours bit more festive, we added a ribbon topper using one of our knotted picks.  Now all you have to do is grab a fork and dig in!

We love to see how you Garnish, and today we’re showing you how Jenifer, of Hello Love Designs, Garnish’ed a superhero themed birthday party.  How fun are these colors!

Jenifer used our small kraft bio packs on which she attached the superhero labels.  She tied the whole thing up with some of our red and white baker’s twine.  Be sure to check out her blog Hello Love Designs for more inspiration.  Thanks so much for sharing Jenifer :-)

We love getting emails from our customers, showing us how they Garnish.  (we also kinda love the compliments you throw our way too)  So when we got this email from Christina of Something Chic, we wanted to show you a few of her pictures.

Christina used our french fry scoops and no soup for you containers for a vintage Mario Brothers party.  You can check out more of Something Chic on their website.  You will find lots of great inspiration!  Thanks so much for sharing Christina.

If you would like to show us how you Garnish, send us an email at info[at]

Little boys that is!  They deserve to have a fun, boy themed party take away too.  Whether you’re hoping to keep small hands busy, or just want to give a big thanks for coming to the party, we’ve got a cute idea for you.

Bulldozers, band-aids and scary dinosaurs are packaged up in our cardboard berry basket.  Not only is it super sweet, it’s got a handle for easy carrying. Here’s a hint…to get the handles to stand perfectly upright, just use a hairdryer to heat them up a bit so you can shape them into place.

We have lots of fun thinking of different ways you can use Garnish.  We try to think “outside the box” and show that a berry basket just isn’t for berries, or our No Soup For You container just isn’t for soup!  Today we have parties on the brain….

It’s hard to come up with new ideas for party favors, especially for the kiddos.  While browsing the dollar bin at Target, we were struck with some fun ideas.  How about sand toys?  Target has some great colors, and they are only 99 cents each!  So much better than candy, right?  The perfect tote for these goodies is our two for the road drink carrier (see…it’s not just for drinks!)  We added a tag that we printed off on the computer, some bubbles wrapped in patterned paper, and this favor is ready for the taking.

What do you like to give out as favors at your parties?  Do you have a go to idea that you want to share?  Tell us how you Garnish…we’d love to hear!

Do you have a birthday party, shower, pot luck or picnic on the horizon? Why not have some fun with confetti!

We glued some confetti onto our glassine bags and used them as cutlery pouches.  So cute, right?  Or what about sending some favors home in our burlap bags, decked out in confetti of course.  We didn’t use any special tools here…just a hole punch to make our confetti and a glue stick to attach them.  This is a perfect project for the kiddos to get involved in.  So go ahead…have some fun with confetti!

Are you looking for a quick and easy idea for your next get together?  We’ve got an answer!  What about sending everyone home with your favorite snack.

In this case, we’ve got some pistachios packaged up in our Hip 2B Square geometric dish.  Maybe you make a delish pretzel mix or trail mix.  Or what about some roasted pumpkin seeds…perfect for this time of year.  Whatever it is, your guests will appreciate the gesture (or even your kids for a weekend afternoon)!

What’s your favorite fall snack mix?

Garnish + Enjoy
