There have been so many exciting things happening at the Event Blossom offices that we’re all still trying to catch up. But there’s one major thing that I wanted to share with all you. This is one thing that has made all the difference for many of us here at EB.
Whether you’re one of our retailers, someone who has ordered EB products through one of our retailers, or a human being in general this is something that I recommend for anyone. Allow me to present, the Event Blossom Wall Of Inspiration:
From the classics such as Van Gogh to the amazing contemporary street art of Banksy; From the San Francisco 49ers to Grumpy Cat; from favorite pets to favorite Graphic Designers… This wall is full of everything that inspires us, uplifts us, and just plain makes us happy to see. And by us I mean everyone who has ever stepped foot into our office. While some may put up more things than others (*cough* our graphic designer, Eunie *cough*), the wall is open to everyone.
There is no limit to what may inspire you, and there is nothing like a visual reminder of that for you to look upon everyday. So take some time out of each day, whether it’s 5 minutes or 5 hours, to find something that inspires you and put it up where you can see it. And I promise, you’ll start to feel that sometimes very elusive thing called creativity starting to make its appearance in your life.
Until next time,
It’s been one busy Summer, Blossomers! Our Creative Team is on fire with product development, and they show no sign of slowing down anytime soon. So far, we’re up to 4 product launches this season with our newest being the DIY Blank Collection of Event Blossom favors.

As for me, you know I’ll be here cooking up some crafty ideas of my own.
Until next time,
Have you heard? The Event Blossom Team gets to enjoy a four day weekend for the Fourth of July! Although it’s officially been summer for a couple weeks now, I consider this the real beginning of my favorite season of the year. What better way to kick off the summer than with a morning at the beach, afternoon barbequing with friends, and fireworks to end an entire day of fun? Of course, no Independence Day would be complete without the sound of laughing children throwing little poppers throughout the neighborhood as they make their way back from the local fireworks display. Speaking of things that go POP…
POPCORN! Even better, caramel popcorn. Our mini mason jars hold a generous amount of this classic treat, although you can never really have enough in my opinion. Add a sweet message to match and express your love and thanks to loved ones for celebrating your next special occasion.
We have only 11 more days left of our Mason Jars: 30 Ways in 30 Days series. That’s 11 more days of fun!
Have a wonderful weekend,
P.S. Just a friendly reminder: Event Blossom will be closed on Thursday, July 4, and Friday, July 5. We’ll be back in action on Monday!
S’mores are the quintessential childhood treat. One bite has the potential to bring back tons of memories from camping trips, summer bonfires, and family gatherings. Help friends and family reminisce about and make more of those campfire memories by creating a mini s’more kit for them to take home from your celebration.
Here’s what you need:
- Graham crackers – 4 half pieces
- Chocolate bars – 2 pieces that are similar size to the crackers
- 8-10 Mini Marshmallows
Here’s what you do:
- Place them in a Mini Mason Jar (the jar holds enough for 2 mini s’mores)
- Give them out
Make sure to keep a jar for yourself and follow these instructions:
- Roast marshmallows over an open flame, using 4-5 mini marshmallows per s’more
- Smash your warm marshmallows between two graham cracker pieces with one piece of chocolate
Summer is just around the corner (the official first day of summer is June 21). With the sun staying up later, it’s the perfect season to spend outdoors. A little survey around the office came up with these outdoor, summertime favorites: BBQ’s, biking, basketball, football, wakeboarding, and softball. As for me, I can usually be found at one beach or the other.
Aside from maybe the BBQ’s, all of these have the potential to build up a massive appetite. The solution to those hunger pangs between meals?? Trail mix! There are endless combinations of ingredients to these easy-to-throw-together-and-go mixtures. This is what we put in ours:
- dried cranberries
- colorful chocolate covered sunflower seeds
So, put your favorite mix in a mini mason jar for the outdoorsy types in your life. Or, even better, grab some trail mix for yourself and get outside and have some fun!
Our first Mason Jar project was a delicious cookie mix that loved ones can make on their own. In this next idea, we filled one of our Mini Mason Jars with scrumptious cupcakes that can be enjoyed right away!
Here’s what we did:
- Took some ready-made cupcakes
- Cut the cupcakes into small pieces so that they could be easily layered in the mini jar
- Picked out our favorite colored frostings
- Placed alternating layers of cupcakes and frosting in the jar til we got to the top (in this case it was 2 layers of cake and 2 layers of frosting).
If you’re making a large amount of these, a simpler way to make the cake layers is to bake one large cake and cut that into pieces instead of using individual cupcakes.
As an added touch, finish each jar off with some Baker’s Twine and a Wooden Chevron Spoon for a ready-to-eat dessert that you can give out as a gift, party favor, or after-dinner treat!

Now that the product launch is over, the celebration can really begin! I’m starting out our summer of fun with an exciting series of posts inspired by a new favorite of ours: Mason Jars! What I love the most about these jars is that they are so versatile and there are so many ways to put these vintage style jars to use. In fact, Life Hacker recently challenged readers to “Hack Something Using Mason Jars,” and the responses were awesome! It’s just one example of many how a little bit of creativity can turn these ordinary jars into something extraordinary.
So, my dear Blossomers, for the next thirty days we’re going to be sharing 30 different ways that these versatile jars can be used. Many of them will be great pins we’ve found on Pinterest, but we’ve also got a few ideas of our own. Let’s start off day one with one of these of our own creations:
Day 1: Cookie Mix in Mason Jar
Who doesn’t love the smell of cookies baking in the oven? Cookie mixes in a Mason Jar make a great DIY gift for every occasion. Our friend Kate over at the Sugar Therapy blog came up with a cookie mix recipe that fits perfectly into our new Mini Mason Jars.
1. Gather your ingredients:
- 1/4 cup flour, combined with 1/4 tsp baking soda and a pinch of salt
- 2 tbsp packed brown sugar
- 1 tbsp sugar
- 1 1/2 -tbsp oats
- 3 heaping tbsp mini chocolate chips (or similar sized candy of your choice)
2. Layer the ingredients into the jar in the order listed above (flour goes at the bottom, brown sugar on top of that, etc.)
3. Seal with a Cookie Mix Mason Jar Recipe Tag.
If you find yourself at the receiving end of one of these delicious favors, here’s how you turn your cookie mix into a yummy treat:
Yield: 4 mini cookies
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
2. Combine 2 tbsp butter, 1/4 tsp vanilla, and 1 egg yolk
3. Stir all ingredients into the dry mix until evenly combined
4. Form four small balls of dough and place at least 1-2 inches apart on cookie sheet
5. Bake for 4-5 minutes or until golden brown
Keep your eyes on our Pinterest Boards for more ideas.

Hello, Blossomers. I have returned to the blogosphere and the world of social media. Have you missed me? I’ve most definitely missed you. Where have I been, you ask? I, along with the entire Event Blossom Team, have been hard at work on this exciting product launch that I’ve had to keep secret for far too long – any extended period of time is an awfully long time for me to keep such fun things from you. It took every bit of restraint to not give away everything as I counted down the days to the big release, but the wait is finally over and the day has come…
Without any further ado, allow me to invite each and every one of you to Event Blossom’s biggest product launch yet:
