We love when you show us how you Garnish!  Karen just sent us this picture to show us her version of Garnished s’mores.

Karen used the kraft ripple bowls to hold her fixings.  She also punched holes in the lid of one of the kraft ripple bowls to hold her roastings sticks.  This is a super fun grab n’ go treat!  Thanks for sharing.

So, how do you Garnish?  Drop us a note and show us how.

Garnish + Enjoy

How cute does our kraft rectangle box look?  The blog mentions that this is the perfect  idea for new neighbors.  Doesn’t it seem everyone makes a big move in the summer?  It just so happens we happen to have new neighbors ourselves…we might just have to use this idea!

Thanks to the Sweetest Occasion and Studio DIY for letting us know about this Garnish In Action!

Summer has finally begun, and the kiddos are out of school.  That last week is always a crazy one…especially trying to find the perfect gift for all the teachers and teaching assistants.  We like to give to gift cards, something the teacher can use for the classroom and something they can use for themselves.

What better way to package them, then in our new paper card sleeves.  Remember, you don’t always have to do something up on the computer, or add fancy flourishes…sometimes a colorful Sharpie does the trick!  That’s just what we did with ours, and we think they look pretty great.

What are your summer plans?  Are you heading out to the lake, a road trip or sticking close to home?  Whatever your plans, we know that the new issue of Garnish – the magazine is going to have lots of fun summer ideas for you.  Look for it in this space soon!

How awesome do our white cups look in the July/August issue of Martha Stewart Living!

So many fun ways to spice up our cups for your summer parties, or just hanging by the pool.  Thanks so much to the folks over at Living, and can we say, we are loving the redesign of the magazine.  Make sure to pick yours up for some great summer reading.

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!

Temperatures are warming up and Spring is definitely in the air!  It’s time for some fun with flowers (albeit the faux kind).

 

We gave some Spring flourish to our paper cones by adding some pretty flowers and ribbon.  Perfect for hanging in the window, a doorknob or anywhere you want to feel a little sunshine.  How about adding some flowers to our white box?  Just punch some holes in the top, add your favorite flowers and some ribbon.  Who wouldn’t want to receive a gift this pretty!

Enjoy your Easter weekend, and pass on those leftover jelly beans to us :)

We have to confess, we love Easter Brunch!  And it’s even better if you get to enjoy it by keeping little hands busy, right?

Why not leave the kiddos something fun to do while you savor that eggs benedict.  A couple of fun and easy crafts (ie. don’t require parental supervision) in one of our french fry scoops is just the thing.  Whether it’s some dollar store crafts and stickers, little puzzles or something fun to eat, the younger set will enjoy this special treat.  We personalized these with some puffy paint…it is easy to write with and stays put.  Now…go enjoy another mimosa on us :-)

We have to admit…we went a little crazy at the craft store.  There is just so much cute Easter stuff and our mind was buzzing with ways to decorate our Garnishes!

We decided to dress up our wooden serving boat.  We found this great product called Smooch Spritz.  It’s a shimmery accent spray that works perfectly for small craft projects.  We sprayed the bottom of our wooden serving boat and added some festive Easter decorations.  This would be a so pretty for your Easter table.  You could also use the same idea on our wood paper cup and fill it with some pretty spring flowers.

We are trying to think of ways to jazz up your Easter gifts…so today we added some glitter!  This DIY was a lot of fun and pretty easy.  Here are the details…

We used our white box for this one, the perfect blank canvas.  First we drew our words in pencil on the box.  We used block letters, so it was was simple.  Just remember to draw lightly so the pencil won’t show through.  If you’re not confidant in your penmanship, print something out on the computer and trace it on.  Second, we used basic white craft glue and painted it on top of our drawn letters.  It’s okay to go a little outside the lines on this step, it will help to cover up your pencil marks.  Don’t skimp on the glue, you want to make sure your glitter sticks!  We did one letter at a time, as we wanted to try out different colors.  The final step is to sprinkle on your glitter.  If you do it over a tray, you can be generous in your sprinkling and put the extra back in the bottle once you shake it off.  Now all you have to do is fill your box with some fun Easter gifts!

We had a lot of fun with this DIY and we think we might use this idea in some future blog posts.

Garnish + Enjoy
