With the weather turning a little chilly, nothing warms you up quicker than tea and cookies, Garnished up, of course!

 

 

Packaged up in our contessa container, with some red and white twine and a fun label, anyone would enjoy this tasty gift.  We found these fun chalkboard labels at Target, but you can use one of our oval labels as well.  As for the cookies…well you can go homemade, or pick some up at the store (we won’t tell). One of our favorite brands is  Tate’s Bakeshop, have you heard of them?  If you live in the Northeastern United States, you just might of had some of their tasty cookies.  Our favorite are the “Chipless Wonder” cookies.  Think chocolate chip cookie without the chocolate chips (sounds crazy to leave out the chocolate, but trust us!)

It’s October…and that means Halloween is on it’s way.  While figuring out what your costume is always a challenge (hoping the boy decides on something easier than last year’s “dragon robot”), handing out treats just got easier!

Introducing our Garnish Boo Kits.  Included is everything you need to make giving Halloween goodies a breeze.  Here’s what’s inside….6 medium cello bags with the label attached, 6 pre-cut pieces of black and white twine, 6 custom made boo cards with spider adornment and the instructions you need for putting it all together.

You’ve been BOO’d!

Michelle sent us an email to let us know how she used our berry baskets and we were in love with this idea as soon as we saw the pictures from the Avery and Augustine blog.

We know how much kids love pretend play (we happened to love playing “restaurant” when we were younger) and this idea of a day at the farmer’s market is such fun!  Once again, Garnish know no boundaries…it’s not just for packaging up cookies.  Check out the full blog post here, and thanks to Avery and Augustine for showing us how you Garnish.

A few months back we attended the wedding of one of our best friends.  Knowing that she loved ice cream more than anything (well, except for the groom of course!), we decided to gift her with her favorite thing!

We gave the happy couple a gift certificate to Jeni’s Ice Cream which we packaged in our large no soup for you container.  Of course, it looked just like a pint of ice cream!  How fun!  We also added in some “Mr & Mrs” ice cream spoons, and a good old fashioned ice cream scoop, which we had engraved with their names and wedding date.  And wouldn’t you know it…the bride and groom thought this was one of the best gifts ever!

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!

We saw this great idea on Pinterest and had to put our own Garnish spin on it.  So here you go…

  • 1. our squat gable box
  • 2. animal crackers for when your classroom feels like a zoo (packaged in our glassine bag)
  • 3. chewing gum to help you stick to it
  • 4. crayons to color your day bright and cheerful (how fun are these that we found at Target!)
  • 5. erasers to remind you everyone makes mistakes
  • 6. lifesavers for when you’ve had one of those days (also packaged in our glassine bag)
  • 7. Mounds bar for the mounds of confidence you give your students

We made a simple label on our computer that we jazzed up with some clipart we found online.  Tie the whole thing up with ribbon and you’ve got the perfect gift for the teacher!

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.

Is it the middle of May already?!  Time to start thanking those men and women who spend all day with your children…their teachers.

We found this very cute apple scrub brush in the dollar bin, and it was the jumping off point for this fun gift.  Along with a cute tea towel and mini size soap, we put in a well deserved gift card.  And of course, we just had to use our new paper card sleeve and oval label to jazz it up.  Our cardboard clamshell keeps everything where it should be on the bus ride to school.  We think your child’s teacher will appreciate this one!

What do you like to give as a gift to the teacher?  Do you have a go-to gift or an idea you’d like to share?  Leave us a comment….we’d love to hear from you!

6 May 2013

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!

Garnish + Enjoy
