Most Popular Baby Shower Trends of 2012: Part 1

October 17, 2012
Baby Balloon & Candy Pail

Baby’s on the way! Time to pick a clever baby shower theme before you pop. Too many options? We’ll narrow down the choices for you. Here are two of the top five baby shower trends for 2012, plus tips on how guests can get involved with fun games and cute baby gifts.

Fannie May Baby Blue Chocolate StrawberriesGender Reveal Showers
Today, many soon-to-be parents are sharing the excitement of finding out their baby’s sex by throwing gender reveal showers. The baby’s sex is kept secret till the day of the shower, when a cake that’s filled with either pink or blue frosting is served. When mom and dad cut the cake, the color of the frosting tells them whether they’re having a girl or boy! Although I’m not becoming a mom anytime soon, my parents and siblings are convinced that my first baby will be a girl, so I already know this idea would be a hit with my family: Before the gender reveal cake is cut, lay out a large platter of pink and blue Fannie May chocolate-covered strawberries. Tell your guests to pick a berry based on what they think the baby’s gender is. Count how many of each color are left to see which one got the most votes!

My Little Night Owl 5-Piece Baby Gift BasketOwl-Themed Showers
My boyfriend and I are full-on obsessed with owls (we’ve filled each other’s homes with owl-shaped mugs, candles, key caps, mouse pads … you name it), so I have an especially soft spot for this trend. New mommies who want to throw gender-neutral showers are using owls as their main source of inspiration for everything from invitations to desserts. Whether you’re welcoming a baby boy or girl into the world, you can add an enchanting touch to your baby shower with woodsy decorations like old-fashioned bird houses, mason jars and spray-painted tree branches. Guests also have plenty of adorable baby gifts to choose from, like the “My Little Night Owl” 5-Piece Baby Gift Basket, to celebrate the coming of your little owlet! (Now if you don’t mind, I’m going to take some mental notes for my own future shower. …)

Tune back in next week for the final three most popular baby trends of 2012! Until then, we want to hear from you. If you were having a baby, when would you want to find out its gender: as soon as your doctor could determine the sex, during your baby shower, or right after delivery?

Olympics 2012!

July 27, 2012
juniors red velvet cheesecake

Hello Gift Basket Fans! 

Our work picnic yesterday was great! A little hot out (especially after a few rounds of sand volleyball), but it was a fun change to be outside. Plus, it gave all of you some extra time to submit your comments! I think a lot of us agreed that food is the way to go in most cases, but it doesn’t hurt to get a little trinket to remind you of what great gift givers you have around you. Speaking of gift giving, I have a few gift baskets to award now. Congratulations to Gita (July 26, 2012 at 12:06 pm), Julie H (July 19, 2012 at 7:49 pm), Clara Ray (July 26, 2012 at 11:05 am), Teresa (July 19, 2012 at 11:18 pm), and Olivia (July 27, 2012 at 7:45 am)! You will all be receiving the All Smiles Gift Basket that comes with a $10 gift to use on your next purchase so you can choose which gift basket is right for you! Email your information to me at and I’ll get your gift baskets out to you.

Today (and well let’s be honest, the next two weeks) I am ALL over the Olympics! I’m counting down to the Opening Ceremony tonight, what surprises they’ll pull out, what secret thing David Beckham is doing for the ceremony, if there will be some mention of Harry Potter since the director is creating this whole thing (a girl can dream). Either way, 7:30 I will be tuning in. Also tuning in for Swimming, Track & Field, Gymnastics (how do they DO that?), Volleyball, and probably a few more events that catch my attention. All from the comfort of my couch of course. The Olympics (and watching any kind of sport in general) goes one of two ways for me, either I get really motivated to be active or I just watched, amazed, while eating very delicious non-Olympian food. 

And it’s looking like this year will be falling into the latter category, especially after I found these adorable Olympics cupcake decorations from Williams-Sonoma. Yes, I know, making and eating cupcakes while watching the best athletes in the world from my television. If I make it into a viewing party with other people to help me eat these, would that make it better?

Are you going to have your own Olympics viewing party? Let me suggest one of my favorite desserts to include at your party. Our Junior’s Red Velvet Cheesecake! It’s got red and white, so there’s your patriotic colors. And have I ever mentioned how sinfully delicious this cake is? Very creamy without being too sweet, the red velvet crumble on top and sides, plus the cake portion mixes very well, and there is plenty in one cake to share! I had it for my birthday to be served to my whole family (aunts, uncles, grandparents, the whole 9 yards) and we have all sworn by it’s delectable nature since. 1800Baskets has also been running a special for 20% off, so now you really can’t say no! I promise, your party guests will absolutely love it. juniors red velvet cheesecake

We still have our Stars & Stripes Chocolate Covered Strawberries ready to order. And you can read a full review from me (along with some pictures!) here in a previous post!

You can find the Olympics Event schedule here.

Now tell me: In the comments section (1-2 paragraphs), which Olympic event are you looking forward to and why? FIVE lucky commenters will win a special prize next week!

Have a great weekend and happy Olympics!

Stars & Stripes Chocolate Covered Strawberries

June 26, 2012
fourth of july chocolate covered strawberries

fourth of july chocolate covered strawberriesEveryone loves chocolate covered strawberries, especially when they’re so seasonally decorated in the good red, white and blue! fourth of july chocolate covered strawberries

Our Stars & Stripes Chocolate Covered Strawberries are an absolutely decadent treat that will have you feeling more patriotic with every sweet bite. Fresh-picked and ripe strawberries are hand-dipped in and festively decorated to perfection. You’ll receive six strawberries hand-dipped in dark chocolate and decorated with red, white and blue candy stars. As well as six large strawberries hand-dipped in white confection and drizzled with patriotic red, white and blue confectionary designs.

I loved these decadent berries and felt a lot less guilty eating so many of the dark chocolate covered strawberries, convincing myself that since it’s dark chocolate it would be okay! I have no excuse for the white confection strawberries other than they were too delicious to resist and I wish I had about 20 more of them. I currently have a few freezing to enjoy later, they end up tasting like a strawberry chocolate smoothie.

With Fourth of July coming up soon, these chocolate covered strawberries would be perfect for a Fourth of July party dessert or a great party prize. Be sure to send these to any military relatives and families you know to celebrate the season, or just order some as a great treat to snack on with you and your family on your way to see 4th of July fireworks!

Orders come in 6 or 12 chocolate covered strawberries and require overnight delivery. fourth of july chocolate covered strawberries

Fourth of July Party Ideas

June 21, 2012
fourth of july chocolate covered strawberries

fourth of july chocolate covered strawberriesWelcome back readers,

I promise I’ll hold off on the picnic blogs for a while now, I think I got it all out of my system (at least until I try all of your suggestions out). But please let me know if any of you try out your own picnic ideas or the delicious recipes featured last week, and send pictures! We have some winners to announce who can be our first to try out the picnic ideas. Congratulations to Jean C (June 14, 2012 at 8:18 pm), bessie burnsed (June 15, 2012 at 11:05 am), Ashley (June 16, 2012 at 5:19 pm), Kristen eby (June 18, 2012 at 1:11 am), and Jessica Beard (June 18, 2012 at 2:56 pm)! Please email your info to me at and I can send out your prize! 

We’re so close to July, which is crazy to me because I feel like May was just yesterday! July is the month for camping, barbeques, and tons of outdoor summer parties. And we have our biggest summer party coming up: Fourth of July! What could be better than some fun in the sun, celebrating with red, white, and blue? Also a Fourth of July party means one of my favorite things about summer: Fireworks. There is something very right about enjoying something off the grill, a patriotic dessert and colorful fireworks against the night sky. So let’s get planning with some awesome Fourth of July party ideas! fourth of july party caramel apple

Our sister brand Celebrations has a great piece on decoration for a 4th of July brunch here. I think there are so many fun ways to incorporate the festive patriotic colors into your designs, like checkered table cloths with solid colored plates. Or utilize this fun and festive stars and lantern lights at your Fourth of July bash! (Both found at Target). Even better is this party gear kit with fun patriotic hats and décor!

This is going to be a very short post, because sometimes certain bloggers get very busy and also want to get more ideas from their very gracious readers!

In the comments section below (1-2 paragraphs) tell me how you would incorporate the following products (and the previous decor if you want!) in your own Fourth of July party! Five winners will receive the chocolate covered strawberries!

Have a great weekend of planning!

Valentine’s Day

January 26, 2012
Godiva® Valentine’s Day Chocolates Gift Basket

Welcome Back Readers!

We have A LOT of names to get through today, so I’ll just go right at it! Congratulations to Jenny S (January 19, 2012 at 4:22 pm), Teresa Skinner (January 19, 2012 at 5:10 pm), Doris (January 20, 2012 at 9:00 am), Jill Kinney (January 21, 2012 at 12:10 pm), Bessie Louise Burnsed (January 23, 2012 at 11:27 am), Carmen Guajardo (January 23, 2012 at 11:54 am), Marie Lujan ( January 23, 2012 at 1:26 pm), Ben G (January 24, 2012 at 8:18 pm), Dorinna Wren (January 25, 2012 at 10:46 am), and Hank (January 25, 2012 at 3:00 pm! Send your shipping info to and I’ll get your Starbucks gift baskets out to you!

Decadent Happy Valentine’s Day Truffle Cake Pops

Decadent Happy Valentine’s Day Truffle Cake Pops $24.99; Product Code:94360

Whew! Now that that’s settled, let’s jump right into Valentine’s Day! As a young girl in my 20s, I am pretty much obligated to enjoy Valentine’s Day and all the glitz and chocolates that come with it (which for the most part I do!). Personally, I could do without the color pink screaming at me from all sides (I’ve always been a blue girl myself) but man do I ever enjoy getting gifts or cards on Valentine’s Day. I like to think that this has been instilled in me since grade school when we would heavily decorate an old shoe box to house all the Valentine’s Day cards every kid in class was made to bring that day, and then read over the same “You’re cool!” message that was written by the people you liked once you got home (You’re cool, too Sean).

Well, I don’t have a decorated shoe box on my desk now and only one person is really obligated to send me presents on February 14. But I’ve learned that the gifts do get a lot sweeter, literally. I’ve been really good about this vegetarian thing for January (almost a month through!) so I will have no qualms whatsoever about eating my weight in Valentine’s Day gifts on the 14th; Which is a good thing too, because I really can’t choose what I want more out of our Valentine’s Day collection.

Godiva® Valentine’s Day Chocolates Gift Basket

Godiva® Valentine’s Day Chocolates Gift Basket $79.99; Product Code:96121

Our Godiva® Valentine’s Day chocolate gift basket is enough to make your mouth water just from the computer screen. It’s packed with small chocolates, chocolate-covered pretzels, truffles, dessert bar, cocoa, confections and so much more. Also the basket is sincerely stylish enough to be used when it’s emptied.

Our Valentine’s Day truffle cake pops have definitely had their own feature in my dreams. We had a version of them for Halloween and at least 5 were consumed by me in one day…I just couldn’t resist. Our real chocolate covered strawberries don’t need any kind of introduction, but it’s always good to know that they are decorated for the holiday with cute little red kiss sprinkles!

Imperial Cherry Blossom Spa Gift Basket

Imperial Cherry Blossom Spa Gift Basket $59.99; Product Code:93348

Maybe you’re looking for a more relaxing gift? Our Imperial Cherry Blossom Spa gift basket is simply divine. I may be biased at the moment, because I’ve just recently discovered how much I love salons and spas now that I received a Christmas gift to go to one, but this gift basket is filled with all sorts of extravagant and indulgent gifts. There’s a spa mitten, sponge, body lotion, sugar body scrub, body oil, exfoliating shower gel, and much more! It’s the perfect Valentine’s Day for someone who needs some relaxation.

Since it’s not February yet, I need to go back to staring at pictures of salads and wait for the day when I can go into a sugar coma and wear sweatpants for the rest of the week. But FIVE of you lucky commenters will be able win some sweet Valentine’s Day treats early! In the comments section (1-2 paragraphs) tell me what was your favorite Valentine to receive? Five lucky and random winners will receive the Godiva® Valentine’s Day chocolate gift basket!

Have a great weekend!
