Donut Mind if I Do

by

It’s here!  The holiday you’ve been waiting for: National Donut Day!  These round sweeties aren’t limited to breakfast anymore, in fact they’re the star of the show! So we’re celebrating our love of donuts with our favorite ways to package them for your guests.  The key to a beautifully packaged sweet is making sure your eyes are as happy as your taste buds.  That means simple wrapping, a ribbon and a custom label will be all you need to get the job done!

First up, we have this adorable DIY donut box.  Made from a fairly simple template like the one found here.  This box takes a bit of time,  but makes up for it with impact.  Add a custom label, like this one, and you have a perfectly precious party favor!

In this next favor, we used a similar donut label, but drastically simplified the packaging.  A basic glassine pastry bag isn’t only easy on your DIY skills, it’s also easy on the wallet.  At about $2 for 25 bags (find them here for  your next event) the price is hard to beat!

If you want to make it even easier, you can purchase these party sacks here in the same purchase as your favor labels.  Add a little shredded filler, bakers twine and this hang tag (more colors available in store) for your label and a few donuts on top and you’re good to go!

In this set-up we swapped the circle label and bag for a milk jar wrapped in a water bottle label (which fits perfectly!) and simple straw flag.  This is my kind of grab-and-go snack!  Find these water labels here to complete your next sweets festivity.  Don’t forget the paper straws!Milk and Donut Favor

If you don’t want your beautiful sweets hiding in a bag or box, this is a great option: a cellophane bag with a ribbon and pretty label.

Lastly, you happen to run out of donuts all together, this unique favor will send your guests away ready to sprinkle their next sweet endeavor with fun.

Hops for Pops

by

Nothing says fathers day like seeing Dad kick his feet up with a nice cold brew in hand… hops for pops!  Dad’s are notoriously difficult to buy gifts for, so we’re here to take some of the guess work out of it for you.  We can promise he doesn’t want a tie or a book of coupons, no matter how trendy or sweet.  He doesn’t want a “World’s Best Grandad” shirt from his daughter still in high school.  He doesn’t want a mug shaped like a toilet or a visor with fake hair attached.  What he does want, however, is that good ‘ole standby gift that never fails: cold, hoppy, refreshing beer.  Don’t try to reinvent the wheel, just get him what you know he likes: his favorite brew with a little extra something, like a custom label to show the love.  These custom labels can be purchased here and offer a 48 hour turn-around time, so Dad can sip in style!

So make sure your Dad has a fully balanced diet this year: a drink in BOTH hands.

11 30th Birthday Party Favors For Adults

by

Turning 30? Don’t panic! Some of the most famous scientists, business men and women and political figures made the biggest waves in their 30s. More important then your impending life of success however is the fact that this important milestone is the perfect reason to host a party. And it’s just good manners to thank your guests for spending time with you to celebrate, but the kiddy loot bags won’t cut it for your crowd. Read on for some appropriate (and awesome!) ideas for grown up party favors for your 30th birthday:

Chocolate Liqueurs

These chocolate-infused liqueurs that you typically only find in your granny’s cabinet from 1993 can be a great party favor for adults. Send your guests home with personalized chocolates to give these easy favors an adorable upgrade.

“Hot Candies”

Thirty doesn’t mean you have to grow up and candies are a safe bet for birthday party favors no matter the age–especially with a grown up twist. Hand out cinnamon flavored candies with a “30 and Hot” label to give your guests a laugh.

Not down with a formal “loot bag”? Set up a sweets table by the door filled with 30 themed treats and kiss your 20s goodbye! Tag ’em with initialed labels, a big 3-0, or other special notes.

 

Create a Hangover Kit

If drinks are to be had at your 30th birthday party, your guests will appreciate a hangover kit for the next morning. Buy travel-sized bottles of Advil, water bottles, snacks, and hand them out in cute kraft paper bags.

Custom Wine Glasses

If you’re feeling a little crafty, give out wine glasses to your party guests with their own name lettered on them! Choose colors to match your party theme and even a hashtag to use for party photos. Every time your friends pull out the glass for a sip of wine, they’ll be reminded of the good times at your party. They’ll also be great conversation starters!

Mini Wine Bottles

Who doesn’t love being sent home with wine? Even better if you send your guests home with a personalized bottle with their name on it! They’ll feel truly special that you went out of your way to give them a personalized gift.

“30 Sucks!” Lollipops

Feeling a bit sour about turning 30? Make light of the situation with these funny “30 sucks” lollipops! These super simple party favors will give your guests a chuckle on their way out the door.

Sunglasses

Practical and fashionable! Your guests will love sporting these glasses on sunny days and remember the fun they had at your 30th birthday party.

S’mores Kit

Just because the kids weren’t invited to the party, doesn’t mean they shouldn’t get the treats. Adults with children often give their edible party loot bags directly to their kids, so why not give out party favors for that particular purpose? These s’mores kits are adorable for summer bonfires with the family or a BBQ-themed 30th!

Plants & Flowers

Turning 30 doesn’t exactly mean you’re over-the-hill, but it’s definitely a time in your life when growing plants and flowers is a totally acceptable thing to do. Give your guests a gift that keeps on giving (unless they forget to water it, of course). Totally eco-friendly, too!

Spa in a Jar

Gifts in a jar are all the rage right now. They’re fun to put together, customizable, and are a great way to use up those empty pasta sauce jars! These party favors are perfect for a 30th birthday party for ladies or even a bachelorette. You can customize the colors to fit the theme of your party, or even add a mini adult beverage to the gift to make it a little more grown up.

Coffee

Coffee is another favorite beverage among adults and a crowd pleasing party favor. Whether you send your guests home with coffee beans or grounds in a bag with a custom label, or even a mug, every cup of joe will flood back memories from your party.

To make your party even more memorable, customize your desserts with personalized labels! Whether you choose to mark your candies with your graduating year or the name of your school, your guests will love the added personal touch.

Yearbook Party

Some schools still do the “most likely” awards in their yearbooks, but if your class didn’t get to partake, why not recreate a yearbook party theme? Place props around the house or venue and set up photo booths with polaroid cameras. Create signs for:

  • Most likely to become famous
  • Most likely to succeed
  • Most likely to win The Voice
  • Most likely to win an Oscar
  • Most athletic
  • Most likely to invent something
  • And more!

Good Luck

Graduating can be an exciting time but also a scary one. You and your classmates may be looking for some good luck wishes whether it’s for getting into their preferred college or landing their dream job. Host a “good luck” party with decor items that instill feelings of hope like rainbows, a pot of gold, horseshoes, shamrocks, and Lucky Charms cereal!

Movie Night

Looking for a low key graduation party theme? Gather your best classmates and host a movie and popcorn night. Hand out custom popcorn bags and watch graduation/prom-focused movies like The Graduate, Superbad, and Dazed and Confused.

Then & Now

Have your classmates changed their look since you first met? Host a then & now party and have everyone wear an outfit they would have worn 10 years ago. Gather up as many childhood pics of your friends and play guessing games to see who can be identified!

Sail Away!

Pull up the anchor and say “bon voyage!” to your colleagues with a sail away party. Theme your decor with the typical sailing items:

  • Anchors
  • Sailboats
  • Lifesavers (real and edible!)
  • Starfish
  • A photo booth complete with:
    • Pirate eye patches
    • Sailor hats`

Wine & Cheese

Maybe your classmates are a little more lowkey. Buy a variety of wines and put custom labels on them so no one knows the brand. Have your guests try and guess which types of wines they’re tasting. And don’t forget to pair them with cheese!

Share Your “Keys to Success”

Celebrate with your fellow classmates and their accomplishments by encouraging them to share their secrets to success. Set up a table with a bulletin board, keys, and tags for your guests to write down their tips. Carry the theme over to the rest of your decor with custom “keys to success” bottles and invitations.

A Guide to Nailing Your Wedding Wine Label Design

by

Screen Shot 2016-09-06 at 1.46.19 PM

Choosing the right gifts for your wedding guests is essential for creating lasting memories of your special day. A wedding wine is an ideal way to remind your family and friends years later of the fantastic time they had at your wedding! A generic bottle with its original label is a nice gesture — but a personalized bottle with a custom label makes the gift a thoughtful, special, and meaningful memento.

Custom wine bottles are not just unique and creative gifts; they are cost-effective, too. You’ll save money by ordering just the wine labels for your bottles than specially labeled bottles direct from a winery. It is significantly less expensive to ship wine labels, too, than it is to purchase and ship custom labeled wine bottles. Buy the bottles separately at a local retailer and label yourself for more control, creativity, and savings.

So, where do you even start when choosing and designing your wedding wine label? We’re here to help!
