Stella & Dot Mother’s Day Gifts – Think Statement Necklace!

Mother’s Day is less than three weeks away and moms everywhere deserve to be pampered on their special day. Stella & Dot allows you to lavish mom with boutique style jewelry and accessories that she is bound to love without exceeding your budget. I was pleasantly surprised to find multiple gifts under $50. Although we adore the entire Stella & Dot Collection, this year we decided to feature statement necklaces – a piece of jewelry every mom would love to own but might hesitate to buy for herself!

One of our very favorite necklaces is the Stella & Dot “On the Mark” Arrow Necklace. It is amazing how one small icon can embody the essence of  today’s mom:  strong, bold, direct, and purposeful yet  subtle, delicate, and feminine.  The arrow necklace will remind mom of where she has been and will keep her pointed in the right direction going forward.   And the Signature Mom Charm is engraved with the word “mom” and can hang from a necklace or bangle.

Name Necklaces on Sale | Best Personalized Jewelry | Special Occasion Gifts

Today’s PIP’s Pick!

In addition to Mother’s Day presents , these lovely personalized necklaces and bracelets are perfect gifts for birthdays, bridesmaids, and new moms, especially at these sale prices. Most items are are marked down more than 40% with prices ranging from a very affordable $29.95 to $149.95 for 14k gold.

We particularly like the rose gold or  hot pink and red acrylic name and monogram necklaces for holiday gifts and even for Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day.

I am especially partial to the children’s name necklaces since my own wonderful mom gave all her daughters a name necklace for our birthdays many moons ago.  They were particularly helpful for my sisters since their friends often had difficulty knowing which name went to which twin.  🙂 — Happy birthday Caryn & Carole!

Check out Adele wearing a personalized name necklace – still hard to read the name but the buzz is it is the name of her baby!  Since this necklace is right on trend, we wouldn’t be at all surprised if we see Princess Kate wearing a George name necklace this Mother’s Day.

Planning a wedding?  Personalized name jewelry make great bridesmaid gifts too!

PIP’s Pick – Customize Glass Party Plates

Customize Glass Party Plates

The best party idea we have come across in eons — create you own reusable, customizable glass party plates! These plates will transform your table from drab to fab instantly!

Last year my good friend and colleague, Vicki, came up with the most innovative party idea I have seen in eons but it seemed too difficult for even a fairly advanced DIY maven to tackle without spending hours and hours on each project – reusable, customized glass party plates.  Vicki originally created these plates for our 4th of July Celebration party inspiration photo shoot but I have not been able to easily re-create the idea until today.  This morning I finally found the solution.

Customizable Square Glass Plate

Libbey Crisa Tempo square dinnerware is made of solid glass that is dishwasher and microwave safe. Sold 12 per case.

What you need:

This  8″ square dinner plate from Libbey.  Not only is it perfect for this project, it is the new hot look in dinnerware. Popular for appetizers, tapas, salads, entrees, and desserts. The possibilities are endless!

Dimensions:
Length and Width: 8″ x 8″
Eating Area: 4″ x 4″

The highlighted information is the operative fact here.  The bottom of the plate is exactly four inches square which means it is the perfect size and shape to apply clear custom window clings to the outside bottom of your plates.  These decals are sometimes referred to a clings since they adhere with static to smooth surfaces and are removable & repositionable with no residue.  This means you can use your glass plates over and over customizing them each time to the theme of your party.  Best yet Party Idea {Pros} has finally found  BuildASign, a merchant that carries custom window clings in the right size (4″ x 4″) with easy to personalize good-looking templates. Alternatively, BuildASign allows you to upload one-click pre-loaded clipart and your own text and images.  They make designing your own decal so, so easy!  Simply click on the button that says shop static clings.  Then browse their list of featured clear decals or choose to create your own message.  With just a click we were able to change both the image colors and the background colors to coordinate with our party theme.  And as we played around with the different options we discovered it is also possible to easily create a round sticker for a round plate but you will have to cut out the circle and measure the bottom of your plate to make sure it fits correctly

So checkMothers Day Lobster Dinnerware Removable Decals this out — we customized these 4″ x 4″ decals by clicking on the  “animal clear decals” button and then adding our text and changing the colors. Originally we thought we would create decals and then found the static clings.  Since the static clings would not allow us to change the background color, we simply saved the image we created to our computer and then uploaded the image (feel free to do the same). Wouldn’t these make fabulous plates to serve that fabulous lobster & filet Mothers Day dinner from Lobster Anywhere?  Perfect for lunch too – just serve lobster rolls!  Yum.

Party Hearty!
