Happy Birthday, Blog

Hello, Blossomers!  Today, we are celebrating a very momentous occasion.  One year ago, this little blog of ours was created and the first post was published.  I can still remember how excited I was to announce to everyone (I mean, everyone) that the blog was officially launched and that there were published posts ready to be read.  Forty-four posts later and we’re ready to take our little blog to the next level.  Expect some exciting changes in the near future.  In the meantime, we’re going to celebrate!

Remember our friend, Kate from Sugar Therapy who made some delicious cupcakes for our Mod Party Kits??  Well, she and I worked together to surprise the office with some delicious cupcakes styled up with the help of our Cupcake Party Mod Party Kit.

I would like to thank a moment to thank everyone who has contributed: our wonderful retailers who have participated in our “Quick Q+A’s,” Kate from Sugar Therapy, and of course the entire Event Blossom Family for all their support from getting their pictures taken to helping me brainstorm some good topics.  I would especially like to give a huge thank you to everyone who has stopped by our little corner of the internet and read our posts.

It’s been an exciting year, but we’re only getting started.  Here’s to more happy blogging!


Welcome to the Blog!

Hello, Event Blossomers!  Our team is always bursting at the seams with things we would all love to share with you from creative favor ideas to big news like the arrival of new products.  Now, we have a place to share them!  So let’s get started, shall we?

Traditionally, favors were given mainly at weddings as a gesture of gratitude.  The old favorite?  Jordan almonds — usually wrapped in tulle and tied with a ribbon.  There’s even a little poem that goes with them:

Five sugared almonds for each guest to eat
to remind us that life is both bitter and sweet.
Five wishes for the new husband and wife —
Health, wealth, happiness, children, and long life!

So not only were favors a nice way for a bride and groom to say “thank you” to their wedding guests, but they also had a place in wedding lore right along with “Something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue.”  Nowadays, favors are given at a variety of events and for a variety of reasons.  Personally, I think it’s great!  And no, not just because we sell favors…

I spotted a quote during a Hallmark commercial the other day:

“Life is a special occasion.”

I couldn’t have said it better.  Who says that you can’t throw a party “just because?”  I say that you should celebrate whatever and whenever you feel moved to do so: passing a big exam, moving into your first home, or even simply because it’s the end of a long workweek.  Throw a party for family members, for new friends, for old friends, or even for your beloved pet!  There are no momentous events too big or too small for a celebration.  And if you just so happen to be in need of favors, well you know that Event Blossom always has your back.
