Festive Faire in Red and Blue

We love seeing things that have been made with supplies we stock and were delighted to receive a photo of these festive party hats.  We're big fans of red and blue together and love the mix of flowers used.  You can see more festive faire HERE in the Prop Shop Boutique.

New to the Shop: Candy Cones & Metallic Tinsel Sticks

 If you love gifting sweet treats then be sure to check out our new selection of pretty metallic candy cones from Germany.  Available in a range of seven colors, each has a crepe paper cuff that can be tied with a pretty ribbon to secure the contents -- you can see below how the orange cone has its cuff sticking up.
 These are perfect for small foil wrapped chocolates or hard candies and just waiting to be embellished with Dresden trims, paper scraps, etc.  The cones don't have handles, but these metallic tinsel sticks below would be delightful and could easily be tacked onto the cones' exteriors and secured with small Dresden medallions.

Absolutely Succulent

photo credit: Bel Fiore Designs
I'm on a succulent kick right now so this bouquet totally caught my eye.  Love the hot oranges of the poppies and those blackberries look good enough to eat! Believe it or not, this completely life-like creation is made entirely with faux flowers by the talented Brittany Deininger of Bel Fiore Design.

Here's a sneak peek of some pretty new millinery items we're busy working with this week.  Lots of photographing, editing, listing and stopping to exclaim to each other, "Wow! Look at these ones!"

On My Desktop This Weekend

Fresh off the boat is a plethora of egg containers from Germany.  From vintage to floral, bunnies to roosters, new styles to old favorites, there are a LOT of eggs! Above, a screen shot of my desktop as I wrapped up editing photos and adding them to our website.
