If you follow our blog, you might know that we love ice cream (well, and french fries, but not together)!  So when one of our customers shows us how she Garnished her ice cream, we HAD to share!

Tracy, from A Cottage Industry, used our white and our kraft ripple no soup for you containers.  She also used some of our wooden cutlery, along with her craftiness and imagination, to make these ice cream containers extra special.  You can read both of Tracy’s blog posts here and here.  Thanks for sharing!

Whether you are looking for a party favor, or just want to Garnish the everyday (our favorite!), tea and cookies is always a welcome gift.

We’ve made this one to go…all they need to do is add water.  We’ve included a tea bag and two cookies in our glassine bag.  Attach your treat and a spoon with some twine to our ripple cup.  That’s all you need.  Now, someone special can have a break at the office, or a fun treat when they get home.

Here are the Mother’s Day ideas that we posted last year.  We thought you would enjoy a little extra inspiration with this Mother’s Day brunch.  Remember, this is also a great idea for a bridal or baby shower, or even just a lovely Sunday afternoon.  Add some mint juleps, and you’ve got a get together for the Kentucky Derby this weekend!

Not Always What It Seems

It’s Got To Be 5 O’Clock Somewhere!

Just a note, the free printables that we offered last year with our Mother’s Day promotion are no longer available.  Don’t worry, we will have something fun to offer you in the upcoming weeks!

We have to say, one of our favorite desserts is chocolate lava cake.  Yummy!  So next time you serve up this delicious treat to your guests…why not add some Garnish?

Our ripple no soup for you containers hold just the right amount of ooey, gooey goodness.  And see that?  That’s our new Say What? stamped cutlery.  The perfect addition to this dessert…dig in!

Garnish + Enjoy

p.s. If you don’t feel like baking, but want to look like you spent hours…check this out. No Pudge! fat free brownie mix.  Yes, that’s right, fat free, but you would never know.  The best part is you can make individual servings in the microwave.  We know, awesome right?  So whether you have six guests or just one (okay, let’s face it, yourself) it’s super easy.  We were not paid in anyway to pitch this product, we just love it!

We are inspired by chalkboard paint this week…so we’re going to have some fun ideas to share with you.  Our first idea is super easy, and very quick to do.  What about adding some chalkboard paint to our wooden cutlery?

 

 

We painted two coats of chalkboard paint onto these forks.  Then all you need is a little imagination, and we know our Garnish customers have lots of that!  You could write some fun sayings or someone’s name.  And you don’t always have to go for black…chalkboard paint comes in all kinds of fun colors now.  We happened to use the Martha Stewart brand from Michael’s, but most any craft store carries chalkboard paint now.  Here is a tip, if you wet the chalk a bit, it makes it a little smoother to write on the paint.

How adorable is this cowboy themed birthday party for little Wyatt?  We are seriously in love.  There are so many awesome ideas here, from a photo booth, to yummy treats to fun and games.

Garnish is featured at this birthday party in our small ripple cups, cutlery and paper bags.  We are always inspired by our customers’ creativity with their Garnishes, and this cowboy party is no different.  They even made toy horses for everyone to take home…amazing!  Check out Kelly Allison Photography’s blog for all the details…thanks so much for sharing!

That’s right…Superbowl is right around the corner!  In this neck of the woods, New England, it’s a BIG deal because the Patriots are going to the big game in Indianapolis.  And whether or not you like football, everyone loves the food served at Superbowl parties.  When you need to serve a crowd, chili is always a great choice.

 

And it looks even better when served up in our small ripple bowls.  You can dish it out ahead of time and put a lid on it.  When everyone is ready to eat they can add some cheese or sour cream and grab a spoon.  Of course, we had to personalize ours with a shout out to our team!

What’s your favorite thing to nosh on during Superbowl?  Do you have any fun traditions?  Leave us a comment and let us know!

We’ve got another quick and easy idea for your sweetheart this Valentine’s Day.  Start their day off right with a fun drink in one of our ripple to go cups.

 

 

All you need to do is add some fun ribbon and stickers (easily found at your local craft store) to one of our new coffee cuffs.  Tuck in a straw and you’re all set.  Here’s another idea…instead of a drink, you could put a fruit salad, some oatmeal or even a pasta salad in our cup and tuck in a fork instead of a straw.  So many possibilities!

You know how when you’re in line at the buffet table, and you start to panic because you don’t know how you are going to hold everything in your hands all at once?  Well, we have a solution…cutlery pockets!  They have everything you need, all in one place.

garnish wooden cutlery and paper straws

We used our small kraft bags as our “pocket”.  First we cut the tops off with some fancy scissors so that you could see the cutlery sticking out.  Next, we filled two of our small glassine bags with salt and pepper.  We also stamped on the glassine bags, but if you don’t have stamps, don’t worry…it’s pretty self explanatory what’s inside!  Then we just stacked them on top of each other and stapled them to the kraft “pocket”.  We used one of those no staple staplers because we don’t actually have a normal stapler.  See…Garnish is all about using what you have…no worries!  Finally, we stuffed our napkin, cutlery and straw inside.

Here’s a tip…place your cutlery at the end of the buffet line.  That way your guests are not having to juggle it while trying to load up their plates with food.  This is a perfect idea for when you have a crowd over to watch the big game.

Garnish + Enjoy

Want a way to make your gift look extra special?  Try a spoon….a demi-tasse spoon to be exact!  Grab your rubber stamps or your trusty Sharpie, and you’re good to go.

We wrapped our white rectangle box in a piece of felt, some red and white twine and one or our demi-tasse spoons.  Isn’t it fab?  Honestly, when it looks this good, does it really matter what’s inside…we didn’t think so!

Garnish + Enjoy
