Are you aware today is National Donut Day?  It was originally started by the Salvation Army in 1938 to honor the women who served donuts to the soldiers during the war…who knew!

If you plan on serving up some donuts anytime soon…cause really, anytime is a good time for a donut…why not Garnish it up.  Our french fry scoop, wood serving boat or any of our food trays are just perfect.  Or you could put a bunch of mini donuts into a bowl and use our bamboo tongs so your guests can grab their own.  And, of course, a donut is perfect for dipping into your beverage of choice in our plastic mini cup.

Now….what’s your favorite donut?  And do you spell it doughnut or donut?

We were beyond thrilled to have Garnish featured in the June 2013 issue of Better Homes and Gardens Magazine.  How awesome does our cardboard clamshell look as a take out box.  We think it’s a fantastic idea!

We still can’t believe how our little idea has grown when we see our products in magazines.  We guess you all really like us!  Thanks again to Better Homes and Gardens, and be sure to check out the issue for amazing summer entertaining ideas.

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.

Easter gifts don’t always have to be about candy, so why not try something new this year.

How cute are these pencils in our clear candy tube?  We also tied on some fun Easter erasers in our medium glassine bag.  You can always find stuff like this in the dollar bin at Target or Michaels.  Don’t forget to sharpen those pencils before you wrap them up…it makes it easier for everyone!

It’s already March, which means it is almost Spring (YAY!) and  we’ve got a bunch of holidays coming up that could use a little Garnish!  First up…St. Patrick’s Day.

It’s easy to do something quick and simple for this March 17th holiday.  Whether you choose some cookies, four leaf clovers or lucky gold coins (of the chocolate variety), our kraft treat bags are the perfect package.  We found these cute pins at Michaels.  Not only do they hold your package closed, they are also a fun to wear!  Maybe they are even lucky and will help you find the pot of gold…

Happy Monday everyone!  What do you have in store for the week?  Are you looking for some inspiration for Valentine’s Day?  Well, we have a recap of some of our faves…

Top:  Our version of the “love shack”.  It was super easy to make with wafer cookies.  We also used the rub on letters you can find at the craft store.  Check out the full post here.

Bottom Left: Simple and sweet…conversation hearts and cinnamon hearts in our candy tubes.  Check out the post here.

Middle Bottom: Fancy up some of our paper straws with hearts.  So easy!  Check out the post here.

Bottom Right: This is a DIY.  We traced hands out of construction paper and made a flower.  How fun!  Check out the post here.

Stay tuned, because there will more Valentine inspiration to come this week!

Garnish ♥ Enjoy

Yes, it’s hard to believe that January is almost over!  (thankfully, as we are in a deep freeze here)  That means it is time to think about what you’re going to give your valentine…

Here is a fun and quick idea for you.  Rice Krispie Treats mini heart cakes.  Rice Krispie Treats are just about the easiest thing to make.  Here is a recipe for you.  Make a large pan of squares and simply use three different sizes of heart cookie cutters to cut out your shapes.  Stack them on top of each other.  Next  melt some red chocolate in the microwave and drizzled it on top.  Finally, place into one of our small acetate boxes with some cinnamon hearts.  We had this pretty ribbon that we found at our local craft store to complete our Valentine treat.  Aren’t they cute?  These would be adorable for your child’s class or your favorite co-workers.

Garnish ♥ Enjoy

We’ve got a DIY for you today, and it involves glitter!  You might remember last year Oh Happy Day did a glitter DIY with some of our Garnishes.  We decided to to add some festive color this year and try it ourselves.  Here is what you will need.

We used spray glue, but if you are doing this with children, you might want to use white glue or even double stick tape.  Remember, if you use spray glue, do so in a well ventilated area.  Spray glue is awesome…but it stinks!  We used a lined cookie sheet to dump the glitter on to.  Then we sprayed our Garnishes and rolled them around in the glitter.  You can also use a soft brush to get rid of any excess glitter.  Just let it dry and you’re good to go!  We used the wooden cups, but this would work great on the berry boxes, cutlery or wood cones.  You can even add some glitter to the lids of our no soup for you containers.  How fun would they be filled with cookie dough at your holiday cookie swap.

We decided that our glitter cups worked perfectly on the mantle as candle holders.  They are wood, which catches on fire….so please, use battery operated candles in these ones!

Garnish + Enjoy
