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.  Continue Reading →

Big to Mini Etched Wines & Champagnes  for Your Wedding (or Any Special Occasion)

We recently partnered with EtchedWine.com specifically because we love love love these etched wine bottles. Not only do these etched wines and champagnes look great, they make a huge impression. And many of the bottles can be filled with wine of your choosing. We  love the fact that you can choose a six liter bottle to be the centerpiece on your wedding or rehearsal dinner tables and not only serve the wine, you can also have your guests sign the bottle as a “guest book” keepsake!

75% OFF Tote Bags – Until Noon on Cyber Monday ONLY!

75% OFF Zazzle Tote Bags on Cyber Monday

75% OFF Tote Bags – Until Noon on Cyber Monday ONLY!

If you are even considering giving your out of town guests a welcome bag for your wedding or Bar Mitzvah or Quinceanera or special anniversary or whatever special event you are celebrating, today is the day to buy it!  We should know — just this year we searched far and wide for a beach style tote for a destination wedding.  The task was not only daunting, we were basically unsuccessful in our hunt for the perfect bag because we could not find an affordable quality tote bag anywhere.  Today, Zazzle has changed that paradigm by offering 75% OFF Tote Bags for a very special Cyber Monday Deal. Bags normally priced at $10.95 are selling for just $2.74.  Even the most expensive Impulse Tote Bags normally priced at $29.95 are only $7.49.  Based on experience, we recommend not sizing up unless your plan is to fold the bag and include it as part of the gift rather than stuffing the bag itself. Too big of bags are almost impossible to fill without the gift looking skimpy. You will be surprised at just how much can fit in even the budget tote bag.  Continue Reading →

Best Food Gifts for the Holidays >> The Fruit Company Holiday Gift Tower

Best Get - The Fruit Company Holiday Gift TowerYesterday (December 6, 2012) I opened my front door and had a wonderful surprise waiting for me.  Jed over at The Fruit Company had sent me The Fruit Company Holiday Gift Tower to review.  In full disclosure, companies send me “stuff” all the time and very seldom do they make it onto Party Idea {Pros}.  We only post reviews of products we would buy ourselves and 100% recommend to others.

Let's start with the presentation of The Fruit Company Holiday Gift Tower

  • This gift tower is very lovely – large enough to be impressive but not so big as to be gauche. The red, green and white boxes and ribbon capture the holiday spirit perfectly.  We especially like that all the boxes coordinate rather than match.  This gives the entire presentation a modern, chic sensibility.The Fruit Company Holiday Gift Tower  - Apples, Nuts & Truffles

The contents of The Fruit Company Holiday Gift Tower

  • 1 Pecan, Cherry, Hazelnut Truffles – 3 oz – DELICIOUS – so good in fact that before I had even unpacked all the rest of the boxes, my family had devoured the chocolates.
  • 1 Chocolate Covered Cherries – 4 oz. – These are quite good, if you like cherries in your candy.  Personally, it is not my thing but the chocolate around the cherries was to die for.
  • 1 Mixed Nuts – 4 oz. – Very fresh with just enough salt to satisfy me but not too much salt for my mother-in-law who prefers unsalted nuts.

The fruit was all yummy – among the very best we have ever received.  For a change none of it was over-ripe!

  • 2 Fuji Apple(s) –
  • 3 Bosc Pear(s) –
  • 3 Comice Pear(s)

Wedding Welcome Bag Ideas & Inspiration!

Wedding Welcome Bag Ideas & Inspiration!

With so many decisions to be made during the course of planning a wedding too often the welcome bag is left to the last minute and then the whole process can get a bit overwhelming.  Chances are your first stop is Pinterest – we know ours is. Once there, we inevitably fall victim to what we like to call Pinterest envy. OMG everything is stunning and every little detail is addressed in a chic & stylish way.  But then we start pricing out all those details and after all is said and done some of those “little bags” filled can cost upwards of $50.00 each.  We don't know about you, but the thought of spending $5000 on 100 welcome bags seems insane.  Plus, we are not huge fans of plastering the bride and grooms face on every water bottle and mint tin but rather prefer to choose one signature item and make that item special – think welcome to our wedding weekend Minibooks™ cards!

Smiley Cookies Really Do Brighten The Day!

Smiley Cookies

Reviewed by Samantha (PIP summer intern)

My name is Samantha and I am a cookie fanatic. If I have a choice of any treat, I will always choose a cookie.  Imagine my delight when a box arrived on my desk at work filled with cookies.   These great treats arrived packaged in a colorfully designed box that immediately put a smile on my face. A dozen sugar cookies covered in white icing with six different colored smiley faces  came packed in a sealed plastic container that actually kept the cookies fresh for weeks. In addition to the cookies the box included directions on how to best eat the cookies.  The directions recommended heating them in the microwave for 10 seconds.  After taking my first bite, I decided an extra 10 seconds would take the cookies from good to outstanding.  In fact, my boss, initially a bit iffy about the cookies, really liked them once they were warmed up.  I can honestly say Smiley Cookies are now my new favorite cookies.    I would absolutely recommend them to all my friends.

These fun, scrumptious treats are available in a variety of different colors and shapes. Chose from stars, flowers, hearts, and more to make a basketful of yummy delights. You can also create your own cookie and choose the shape and color of the icing and smiley face. Smiley Cookies are long lasting and extremely versatile; they make excellent birthday presents, “get well soon” goodies, thank you gifts, and are overall great for any party or holiday. They would also be a fantastic take-home party favor treat for guests – just put them out near the door on a large smile face plate and let your guests grab them as they leave the party.  Priced starting at just $12.99 / dozen these cookies are both reasonable and delicious.  Make it a yummy day!

Party Hearty!
