Apples and Honey Host{ess} Gifts for the Jewish New Year

For the last 25 years we have been tasked with finding a gift for our Rosh Hashana dinner hosts. And every year we end up running out at the last minute to buy an ok gift but nothing particularly thoughtful or special. This year we have vowed to order a gift from GiftTree, tonight, so it will arrive by Erev Rosh Hashana (Wednesday September 20th, 2017). These three very special gifts work equally well as host{less} gifts for Yom Kippur Break the Fast as they do for Rosh Hashana dinner. And although GiftTree has a huge selection of gifts from which to choose, we decided to narrow our choice to apples and honey gifts.

12 Housewarming Party Gifts with Special Meaning

This week two of our favorite people in the world were invited to housewarming parties. Both are in their 20s. It seems that their millennial friends are throwing themselves housewarming parties every time they move to a new apartment. Any excuse to party, right? Hopefully they are doing so as a way to gather together friends and family rather than a ploy to stock their new abode. In either case, yes, you do need to bring a gift! So why not use it as a way to infuse extra meaning into the celebration.

The folks over at Things Remembered  did a wonderful job of putting together an article explaining the tradition of housewarming gifting and a list of their 12 favorite housewarming party gifts along with each gift's special meaning. We have tweaked the list just a tad and added some concrete gift ideas of from our friends over at Real Estate Client Gifts and a few of our own!

S'mores Party Invitations

We love Instagram.  We check our feed first thing every morning and today we awoke to this festive end of summer party idea courtesy of Tiny Prints.  How fun would it be to send off summer with a toasty treat by setting up a stocked s'mores bar in your back yard!  We just happen to have a fire pit (or two) so we can't wait to invite friends over for s'more fun.  Although we did like these joyful herringbone party invitations (they are no longer available), in the end we actually prefer the more literal s'mores party invitations available on Minted so there is absolutely no confusion about what to expect – no dinner, no cocktails, simply s'mores. We are especially excited that among the Minted invitation offerings is one of their free online invitations (*free thru 12.31.17) Continue Reading →

Beach Wedding Welcome Bags

Beach Wedding Welcome Bags

Welcome your out of town guests to your beach wedding! Fill these reusable beach wedding welcome bags with everything your guests will need to enjoy your wedding weekend. Think maps, water bottles, sweets, mints, and anything else you can think of. Afterwards your guests can fold it up, pack it, and re-live the memories of your special weekend every time they go shopping.

Last summer we spent months and months searching for beach wedding welcome bags for one of our visitors.  Our biggest issue became the cost.  At just $6.30 these market bags come pretty close to being affordable even for the bride and groom with lots of out of town guests. Be sure to take advantage of the any of the ongoing  Zazzle sales of up to 50% off select products.  If you can be patient, these bags do go on sale occasionally! One more thing >> even though the price of the flip flop bags seem higher, you can easily reduce that price to $6.30 by eliminating the design on the back. Simply press customize, choose the back side of the bag and delete all the design elements.
