By now you probably know that we love our local Trader Joe’s.  They always have fun treats and we love their packaging.  We are SO about the packaging…obviously!  So we gave ourselves a challenge….one up Trader Joe’s!

We remember getting these chocolate oranges as kids.  You bang them on the table and the all the sections break apart…so fun! And we thought, you can go with this…

Or you can go with that!  A little personalization goes a long way.  These are the perfect fit for our cello cupcake bags.  We used an oval kraft label, and our son’s construction paper (shhh…don’t tell!) to make some holly.  Add a witty saying, and we definitely think we one upped Trader Joe’s.  What do you think?

Garnish + Enjoy

What to do for a friend that is stuck in a hospital, on bed rest, while she waits out the rest of her pregnancy…with twins?!  Gossip mags?  She’s read them all.  Dvd’s?  She’s got lots already. Sweets?  Probably not the best thing.  How about a few bottles of her favorite water!  Perfect!

But the box isn’t going to brighten up her day enough…so add a little Garnish!  Our new bottle carrier is the perfect thing, and the small no soup for you container holds just the right amount of lemon wedges.  At least she can feel like she’s enjoying the summer weather, even if she can’t be outside.  A little indoor sunshine to lift her mood while her babes wait just a bit longer to make their appearance!

Garnish + Enjoy

Who’s there you ask?  Well, it’s another “this or that”!  We brought back a stash of one of our girlfriend’s favorite candy from London.  Knowing the stash of Cadbury Flake would be left on her door, we suppose we could of left it at this….

But you had to know that we weren’t happy with a plastic bag!  All we did was put them into one of our white paper bags, add a sticker and some ribbon.  And with an extra thirty seconds of effort, we were much happier to leave that…

Come on…you can do better than that!  We know you’ve got it in you!

We vote for the clear deli container with some of our bakery twine.

It’s so simple to do, and so fun to receive!

Garnish + Enjoy
