You'll be surprised how easy it is to bring simple sophistication to everyday life. Garnish provides all the ingredients and ideas you need to create an experience that everyone will remember.
Garnish is much more than a product, it is the emotion that surrounds what you create with our products. It is running through the grass barefoot or using your good china every day "just because."

We'll get you started with plenty of gift packaging ideas and creative inspiration. And before you know it, you'll be planning get-togethers, throwing parties, or giving gifts just so you can add your own Garnish.

Life is all about moments. Package up a moment, make someone smile and create a memory worth embracing. Who knew...all it took was a little garnish!

Gingerbread House Party

You will be the hippest parent on the block when you suggest to your children they host a gingerbread house party. You don't need to have a birthday to host a kids party.

We have a few tips and tricks for you to carry this party off with ease.
  • Build the houses out of graham crackers ahead of time. Use two crackers split in half for the four walls and another split in half for the roof.
  • Cut a cracker-half diagonally, creating two triangles to be used as the gable ends of the roof.
  • Royal icing is an excellent glue to hold everything together. Make a batch and fill plastic bottle containers, which is done easily if you put the icing into a piping bag, or plastic bag snipped on the corner, and squeeze into each bottle.
  • Give each guest a bottle of icing and some double dip white cups filled with candies to decorate their gingerbread house.
  • Provide gingerbread men or other holiday cookies to be decorated.
  • For the trip home, package the gingerbread houses in our frankly my dear windowed gable box. Two houses fit perfectly in one box.
  • Children love anything with their name on it so go ahead and personalize the box using stickers or rub-on letters.
  • Place the gingerbread men along with any other crafts or creations in our hello cello cellophane bags, tie with some holiday ribbon or our in the knick of twine.
This party is so easy and guaranteed to fill your house and heart with laughter and smiles. Just like that, you took a moment, and created a memory.
Sweet Treats

Preparing an assortment of holiday cookies can be a daunting task. Host a cookie swap where each guest brings several batches of one type of cookie.
  • Display the sweet treats in a variety of our take out containers, bakery boxes, and bags.
  • Prepare a stack of our good to go take out containers and little white box bakery boxes by placing some wrap it up food safe tissue paper and knick of twine bakery twine in each box.
  • Encourage your guests to fill a box or two with some of each cookie.
  • Using our stick 'em up labels; identify every package of goodies.
  • Protect recipe cards by placing them in our do me a favor glassine bags.
  • Send your guests on their merry way with a special gift enclosed in our frankly my dear small gable boxes.
Sit back, relax and enjoy your friends!
