I have always loved fun packaging….I plan on giving a few friends a “box of spring” …seeds for planting, some malted milk eggs in a little “nest”, a couple of cute egg cups, spring cookie cutters and who knows…something else may just “Spring” up!

The gable boxes and containers (picnic party) would be perfect for the beach bridal shower that I am thinking of for a friend. It would be a great detail for a special day.

I’m not sure this is their product, but I absolutely LOVE the idea of covering a table with brown paper for a children’s party! I work with children, and nothing keeps them happier than being able to color on tables and walls :)

I love the idea of doing a cookie swap for the holidays. I have been trying for 2 years to do one at work, this will help me get it done this year, with 8 months to prepare for the month of Dec, I feel confident I can do it! I have the website on my calendar for Nov. 1st. I’ll get organized with the help of garnish, this should be a breeze!!!
