We were VERY excited to see Garnish in print his holiday season! So excuse us while we toot our own horn a bit…

 We had Garnishes on four pages of Southern Living Magazine.    Featured are our two for the road drink carrier, cellophane bags, glassine bags and our hip 2b square geometric bowl.  This issue of Southern Living is full of great holiday gift giving, decorating and yummy recipes…so you definitely have to check it out.  A big thank you goes to out to Southern Living for having as much love for Garnish as we do.

We were featured on three pages in All Recipes Magazine as well!

All Recipes shows you how, with a little DIY, you can make these Garnishes your own.  They used our two for the road drink carrier, our wooden berry basket, cellophane bags and our windowed gable box.  Thank you to All Recipes for showing us how you Garnish and including some yummy recipes too.

We’re feeling extremely grateful for all of YOU..without whom we wouldn’t be here to have such lovely features in these magazines. Thank you so much for continuing to think of Garnish and for continuing to cross our welcome mat into our little home.

What are you going to Garnish this holiday season?  Share with us your creative ideas and you just might see them here on our blog!

With the entertaining season about to be in full swing, it’s fun to think up new and simple ideas that will impress your guests.  Who knew our burlap bag could be so versatile?



Not only is the burlap bag great for holding sweet treats or gift cards, it also makes the perfect holder for all the cutlery on the buffet line, or at a place setting.  We did it up three ways…using easy to find, craft store items.  Stick on jewels and buttons come in all sorts of colors, perfect for the Thanksgiving or holiday table.  We also tried some glitter paint and found that the dark colors works best (we also tested silver, but it was too light).  You can free hand it or use a stencil like we did.  It’s easy, fun and the perfect thing for the kiddos to help out with.  And most importantly….you are creating a special moment for your guests, and that’s what Garnish is all about!

You will be the hippest parent on the block when you suggest to your children they host a gingerbread house party. You don’t need to have a birthday to host a kid’s party.



We have a few tips and tricks for you to carry this party off with ease.

  • Build the houses out of graham crackers ahead of time. Use two crackers split in half for the four walls and another split in half for the roof.
  • Cut a cracker-half diagonally, creating two triangles to be used as the gable ends of the roof.
  • Royal icing is an excellent glue to hold everything together. Make a batch and fill plastic bottle containers, which is done easily if you put the icing into a piping bag, or plastic bag snipped on the corner, and squeeze into each bottle.
  • Give each guest a bottle of icing and some double dip white cups filled with candies to decorate their gingerbread house.
  • Provide gingerbread men or other holiday cookies to be decorated.
  • For the trip home, package the gingerbread houses in our frankly my dear windowed gable box. Two houses fit perfectly in one box.
  • Children love anything with their name on it so go ahead and personalize the box using stickers or rub-on letters.
  • Place the gingerbread men along with any other crafts or creations in our hello cello cellophane bags, tie with some holiday ribbon or our in the knick of twine.

This party is so easy and guaranteed to fill your house and heart with laughter and smiles. Just like that, you took a moment, and created a memory.

There’s something nostalgic and comforting about hot turkey sandwiches in the days following Thanksgiving.  Accompanied by leftover green bean casserole and whipped sweet potatoes…yum!  We focus on all the details for a beautiful holiday table and home.  So why not add the same detail to the leftovers’ packaging?

Sending home a little Garnish will leave everyone with smiles and thankful they swung by your home for the holidays.  The best part, no precarious car ride home, hoping for it to be leak-free.  Garnish containers are intended for food so there won’t be any nasty leaks.  Every little drop of gravy will top your sandwiches, not the floor of your car.

No matter the occasion, if there are to be leftovers, then let them be Garnished!

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!)

We received an email from Maria, letting us know how she Garnished her wedding.  Check out this beautiful picture!

Here is what Maria said…”Just wanted to send you some photos from my wedding so you can see how beautiful the berry boxes looked!  The wedding was in Bogota, Colombia and how we had some guests coming from abroad we decided to fill the boxes with a typical Colombian fruit called uchuvas. “

Thanks for sharing Maria…and so happy that Garnish could be a part of your special day all the way in Colombia!

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!

Summer may be over and fall on it’s way…but we’ve had sweltering heat here the last few days.  And of course, that’s got us thinking of ice cream!



Why not make the everyday a little special by serving up ice cream in our large push pops.  Whether you make your own ice cream or have a favorite brand (hello…Ben & Jerry’s Half Baked!), little hands and big kids too will appreciate this fun presentation.  Not too mention, it helps prevent drips and dropped scoops on the sidewalks (yes…that has happened more times than we care to mention!).  So, what’s your favorite flavor?

Garnish + Enjoy
