Glitter Cake Toppers

We first became acquainted with MercAndJones when searching for the best of the best in Twinkle Twinkle Little Star party supplies and have since fallen in love with their glitter cake toppers. Most recently we featured them in our Pink Ballerina Tutu Party and our Holy Communion Celebration. And today, on our Instagram feed, we noticed there are still a few hours left to take advantage of MercAndJones  22% OFF sale ✨ ✨ USE CODE twenty-two ✨when you spend $30 or more in the Etsy store. And truthfully, even if you miss the sale, these toppers are so worth the extra couple of dollars. As you can clearly, see they elevate a fine cake to a fabulous cake, instantly! Remember to give yourself enough lead time. These glitter cake toppers may take up to 15 days to arrive after mailing in addition to production lead time. Continue Reading →

School colors. School spirit. School roses.

Update! 05.07.19

We are so sorry. It looks as if FTD is no longer carrying college roses 🙁 

Whether you are an entering college freshman or a university alum, FTD offers an extraordinary selection of rainbow roses that will help you celebrate your school colors and your school spirit. Although they do not yet have vases that represent every university FTD has indicated that it is working hard to forge relationships with more and more colleges across the county.

If you are a current student (or are related to one) these  fabulous  bi-color rose bouquets can both be given and received for such special occasions as birthdays and graduation but they also make festive additions to homecoming events, football games, Greek parties and “deliveries”, and best yet, to celebrate the many accomplishments and milestones reached throughout your life.

So next time your are looking for that little something special to represent your college colors and college spirit – think  college roses!

Party Hearty!

Best Pi Beta Phi Little Sister Gifts

Best Pi Beta Phi Sorority Gfits:  Arrow bangle bracelet |  Arrow Socks

Best Pi Beta Phi Little Sister Gifts

If you have followed us for any length of time you probably already know of our #PiPhiLove and our absolute obsession with the perfect Pi Beta Phi gift, the iconic Stella & Dot “On the Mark” Gold Arrow Necklace  or Silver Arrow Necklace.  This little necklace embodies the essence of a Pi Beta Phi sorority woman:  strong, bold, direct, and purposeful yet  subtle, delicate, and feminine.  

With recruitment season in full swing, we realized that soon big sisters across the country will be embarking on the annual quest to find the best little sister gifts available.  Yes, we still love the arrow necklace but realize a single gift probably won't suffice so we have assembled a collection of the best Pi Phi gifts available at a reasonable price point yet not so junky they will get tossed in the trash at the end of the school year.  

You can admit it, half of those Pi Phi stickers and pins and painted wooden arrows never make it to next year's dorm room.  However, we guarantee you a dainty and classic arrow bangle bracelets will be worn almost everyday and at just $3.99 (for 2 days only!) falls within most little sister gift budgets.We were also please to discover a great selection of arrow journals and believe it is well worth spending $10.95 (minus Zazzle's daily deal discount) for a pink glitter arrow journal to help your little sister memorialize the amazing year ahead. And just about any sister could use a 5-pack of arrow socks for only $6.99, a tervis pi beta phi tumbler, or a new Pi Phi iPhone case.  

Party Hearty!
