We had a big dump of snow yesterday, again (have we mentioned that we are SO ready for winter to be over!).  But snow days mean we have time to bake some cupcakes…the perfect Valentine’s Day treat.

 

 

We used our cupcake cello bags, of course, to hold these yummies. Here’s a hint, add some fun Valentine’s Day candy to the bottom of the bag to kick this gift up a notch!  Finally, we added a cute tag and some red and white baker’s twine.  Now the problem is, how do we stop ourselves from eating the whole batch?!

We would comment on how quickly January has flown by, but it’s been so cold outside, we’re happy to be that much closer to spring!  It also means that Valentine’s Day is on its way! Garnish is the perfect blank canvas for packaging up treats for your sweetheart, classmates and even something for the teacher.

 

 

We found this fun heart shape pie mold at Target.  With some ready made pie crust and some yummy cherry filling, these hand pies are perfect for gifting for Valentine’s Day.  We used our kraft treat bags which are just the right size.  We added some paper hearts and trimmed the top with some craft scissors.  How fun would these be for breakfast on February 14th, the kiddos can grab these for the bus ride to school.

The Superbowl is this weekend, and that always means the best munchies.  Here are some ideas we’ve had in the past that will work perfect for football, or really any get together at all.

 

 

Our Garnish version of nachos, is to give everyone their own serving.  Our baking cups are just the right size for individual portions.  Just load up your nachos the way you want, sprinkle on some cheese.  Then put the baking cups onto a cookie sheet and pop them in the oven.

Who doesn’t love a baked potato?  Just put out all the fixin’s and serve the potatoes in our wooden serving boats.  Yum!

Finally we’ve got a Garnish popcorn bar.  You can put out some toppings in our small ripple cups so your guests can dress up their own servings of popcorn.  Think parmesan cheese, cinnamon sugar or even some flavored oils.  Just use some of our large wooden cones or paper lunch bags to hold this yummy treat.

Now we are definitely drooling…can’t wait for Sunday!

Garnish + Enjoy

It’s that time of year when a little kiddos (and big ones too!) love to watch the Polar Express.  With a wonderful message that the true spirit of the season lies within your heart, it is the perfect movie to watch with your family and friends.

“The bell still rings for me as it does for all of those that truly believe”

 

 

Why not make it an extra special event by using a little Garnish!  We used our small bio packs to hold some yummy Polar Express treats.  We mixed together caramel corn, marshmallows and M&M’s, but fill them up with whatever your favorite snack is.  We wrapped each box in some festive scrapbook paper and added a bell, of course!  We served up some hot chocolate in our white paper cups and added a personalized drink cuff for each child.  With some coordinating scrapbook paper and a white label, these are extra special.  We also added a lid and straw to keep the hot chocolate inside the cup!

Besides The Polar Express, we also like to watch Elf, Love Actually, The Holiday and, of course, A Christmas Story.  There are so many great holiday movies…what are your favorites?

**We’ve had some folks ask for the label template. When you place your order make note in the comment section that you would like the “believe template” and we’ll email it on over once your order ships**

Garnish + Enjoy

This cookie dough post has been one of our most popular in the past, and it’s still one of our favorites!  It doesn’t take much time to whip up some homemade cookie dough, and we’re pretty sure you already have the ingredients on hand.

 

 

Once you’ve made the dough, use a small scoop (or a spoon) and place the dough on a cookie sheet.  Pop the whole thing in the freezer for about an hour.  Then, put all the cookie dough balls into our large no soup for you container.  Add a label for cooking instructions and a pretty bow.  Super simple and waaaay better than another pointsetta or box of chocolates.

Here are two of our favorite chocolate chip cookie dough recipies…Martha and Nestle Toll House Cookies

Our name is Garnish Gal, and we confess….we sometimes “fake the bake”.  That’s right…you may receive some store bought goodies from us, but we guarantee that it’s going to look pretty special!

 

 

Let’s face it, you are running in a million directions this time of year, so no need to be a superhero…it’s okay to give some store bought treats.  And when you add a little Garnish, it is always special gift.  We used our hip 2b square geometric dish and cello bag to package up these adorable gingerbread men.  We added a bit of ric rac trim, some twine and a small tag we made on the computer.  We also used our rectangular pint berry basket and glassine bags to hold some pumpkin cheesecake cookies.  We added some fun washi tape and another tag to make this treat extra special.

It’s always easy to add a little Garnish to your holidays!

This year Hannukah starts at sunset on November 27th and ends nightfall on December 5th.  So whether you are celebrating Hannukah next week, Thanksgiving or Thanksgiving-kah, we’ve got the perfect thing for your guests or your host.

 

Who special do these mini bottles of champagne look Garnished up in our cello cupcake bags!  Like we always say, Garnish products work a whole bunch of different ways.  We found some blue and silver foil wrapped chocolates that worked with our Hannukah theme.  We tied on some pretty ribbon and added a cute tag we printed off.  Super easy and super fun.

Which ever way you are celebrating…happy holidays!

Garnish + Enjoy

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!

Garnish + Enjoy
