Update! There is still time to order your gifts and have them delivered before Christmas. Yes, you will most likely pay extra for shipping but it is so worth the money to avoid the crowds at the malls and to ensure your clients, colleagues, and associates know you are thinking of them this holiday season! If by chance you miss the Christmas cut-offs, please know, it is perfectly acceptable business practice that holiday business gifts arrive anytime before the New Year. You might want to adjust your business holiday card to read  something like best wishes in the New Year or wishing you a peaceful & joyful New Year.

This list of the Best Luxury Company Holiday Gifts Over $100.00 takes over where their Best Company Holiday Gift Ideas under $100 leaves off. Both lists are organized from least expensive to most expensive and range from celebratory champagne toasts to gorgeous elegant decanters to scrumptious meals delivered to your colleagues' & clients' front doors. There are treats for individuals, couples, and the whole family! All the gifts have been hand selected to reflect high quality products with lovely presentation designed to impress and delight your associates. These are only a few of the many gifts available.  If you don’t find something you like, feel free to email us and we are sure we can help you find the perfect something for your special client! Please Note: The shipping and tax costs will vary depending on the recipient’s location.   Continue Reading →

The Giving Tree Theme Party Planning, Ideas & Supplies

Monica texted me today and challenged Party Idea {Pros} to come up with a few ideas for a thoughtful yet playful The Giving Tree theme event the school is hosting for Grandparents Day. I didn't have much time to pull it all together but I do believe this is a good starting point to give the committee direction and to get their creative juices flowing.

Any of the trees, real or not, will work well on a buffet.  The least expensive way to approach the event is to fill a large clear vase with red apples and then go into the back yard and gather some tree branches to add to the vase or simply use apples at different heights to decorate your table.  Other options include this artificial apple tree priced at just $33.99  as well as living celebration trees  which you can give away as gifts at the end of the night or plant on campus. We always like bonsai trees since they herald good fortune and happiness. We also think this white cardboard DIY wishing tree kit is really cute  and the accessories are available in many colors including blue and yellow.  Whatever you choose, we would recommend picking up a few The Giving Tree (it's even available in Hebrew!)books and propping them up on the buffet.

Gift choice will vary depending on your budget.  The most economical would be  either the heart shape plantable seeds (grandparent <3) or flower shape plantable seeds.  you could display them in a bucket or hang them from the buffet and/or centerpiece trees.  Simple, thoughtful, cute!  We also like the symbolism behind this miniature watering can filled with plantable seeds.  Personalized plantable magic wishing beans start at just 59 cents each or can be packaged in a cute flower pot or watering can for an additional ~$2.00 each. We also like these chocolate covered pretzel sticks – they remind us of tree branches.

Hope this helps.

Party Hearty!

Royal Empress Tree

World's fastest growing tree with year-round appeal

As I sit here on my porch on this glorious August  evening in Southern California (Planting Zone 9, to be exact), I happened to open my latest email from Nature Hills Nursery.  Generally, I skim most of my emails, but for some reason TJ's blurb about The Royal Empress Tree grabbed my attention so I actually clicked the link and now I am obsessed!  I not only want a Royal Empress Tree, I actually ordered one!

The Royal Empress Tree is the world’s fastest growing hardwood tree. It’s actually listed in the Guinness Book of World Records. How cool is that.  Check out the product page at: Royal Empress Tree

I love the Royal Empress Tree's majestic shape.  I love its spectacular display of bell shaped, deep lavender flowers that burst into bloom on cascading clusters of blossoms and its wonderful light jasmine / gardenia scent.  I love its uniquely fuzzy huge heart-shaped emerald leaves.  And I love that it is super hardy,tolerant of almost any soil type and very fast growing (I am very impatient).  According to the literature this miracle of nature can grow up to 15 feet in its first season, and at maturity reach heights of over 50 feet in less than five years!
