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!

Garnish + Enjoy

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!

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!

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.

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!

Well…in this case, quite a few apples!  We showed you our Garnish version of apple pie last time, and now we’ve got some apple cider and apple donuts!

This is a great gift to bring the host of your next get together.  Whether it’s a dinner party, or a fall afternoon watching some football. We used our rectangular quart size berry box, plastic mini milk jug and the flat kraft treat bag.  A simple graphic on one of our round labels is all you need to pull it all together.  You could even add some pretty fall leaves or ribbon to the basket to give it your own special touch.  You can never go wrong when you add a little Garnish!

Garnish + Enjoy

** you can find the cider image here and the donut image here.     The images will open in a pop up window.  Just right click on your mouse and select “view background image” from there you can right click again and select “save image as”.

On the theme of gifted meals this week…we have another idea for you.  A super easy dessert is pound cake with berries and whipped cream.  We used blueberries, because they are in season right now, but stone fruits like peaches and plums are also in season right now as well.  This treat is just the thing to bring to your next dinner party or weekend away.

We packaged up the pound cake in our quart size rectangle berry box.  Here’s the best part…a Sara Lee (the best!) pound cake fits perfectly into the basket!  We just took it out of the packaging and wrapped it up in some parchment paper tied with twine.  Now it’s up to you whether you want to confess to store bought or homemade…we promise, we won’t tell!

In our small no soup for you containers we packaged up some blueberries and whipped cream.  Just like we said in our last post, grab a carton of whipping cream,  use your hand mixer to whip it up and you’re done.  If you want to go a little bit fancier, you can choose to bring some crème fraîche or mascarpone cheese.  Both of these things are pretty easy to find at a Whole Foods or Trader Joe’s, and even some supermarkets carry them now.

What is your favorite thing to bring for a weekend away? Is there a speciality in your neck of the woods?  We’ve heard a rumor that at the Jersey shore it’s all about the sticky buns…

One of our Facebook friends sent along this picture of how she Garnished a Mother’s Day lunch.  We LOVE it!

This just goes to show that you don’t have always have to think of a table as a traditional way to serve up some yummies.  This idea of a pretty bookcase is so unique.  And as long as the weather is nice, don’t be afraid to bring some of that furniture outdoors.  It will definitely impress your friends and put a fun twist on your gathering!  Thank you Karen for sharing with us!

Karen used our mini milk jug, berry baskets and our kraft ripple no soup for you containers.

Seri, from Little Miss Party, sent us this link to an amazing bachelorette she threw for her sister.  The theme was based around the summer camp they used to spend summers at when they were kids.

We love the idea (and not just because she is a fellow Canadian gal transplanted to the US, like us)!  What made it even more appropriate for the day was that her sister’s fiancee proposed at that summer camp.  Thank you for sharing Seri…you can check out the full blog post here.

Seri used our wooden berry baskets and no soup for you containers.

The end of the school year is approaching very quickly.  In fact, in some parts of the country, your children may already be on summer vacation.  Well, if you are in need of a teacher’s gift, we have an idea for you.  What about some jam and scones?!

If you are really ambitious, you can and your children can make some homemade jam.  Refrigerator jam is quick and easy to make yourself.  You can pick up some yummy scones at your local bakery or supermarket (or make those yourself too!).  And if you want to add a little something extra, what about a gift card to a coffee shop.  We used our small no soup for you container for the jam, our french fry scoop and a cello bag for the scones and we put it all inside one of our berry baskets.

This is also a great favor for a bridal shower, or a BBQ with friends.

Garnish + Enjoy
