Well Hello, 2013!

It’s my first post of 2013, and I couldn’t be happier to be back!

Since the Event Blossom Team has returned from their holiday break, we’ve all been busy as bees pumping out orders for all of our lovely retailers.  I’ve been keeping a close eye on our processing department, trying to stay on top of developing trends and popular products.

Here are some things I’ve taken note of so far:

  • Our MOD Pattern collection of favors are a big hit!  The most popular MOD Patterns so far are: Trellis, Tiny Dots, and Chevron.
  • There have been numerous orders for Milk Bottles paired with orders for our Striped Paper Straws.  It looks like plenty of wedding, baby shower, and birthday party guests will be sipping their drinks in style!
  • 2013 looks like it’s going to be the year of the Candy Tube.  We’ve been getting a steady stream of orders for these versatile favors since we’ve been back.

Overall, I think we’ve got a good year for celebrations ahead of us.

Come back and visit on Thursday for a new post!


Cool New Products Just in Time for Winter!

Happy December!

It’s been far too long since my last post and we’ve got a lot to talk about.  October and November were such a crazy blur — is there anyone else who still can’t believe it’s already December?  I’m still trying to wrap that notion around my own brain.  Soon it’ll be 2013!  Let’s do a quick re-cap of the Fall:

  • The “Helpful How-To” series started with some of our more popular assembly-required products
  • We started getting to know some of our fabulous retailers a little better with our “Quick Q+A” features
  • Hurricane Sandy swept through the East Coast, and everyday we were a little bit more relieved to hear from a friend or family member letting us know that they were safe.

Here’s what to expect for the Winter and New Year:

  • We’ll be brainstorming more  “Helpful How-To” posts.  Send any requests on over!
  • January will feature another retailer for our “Quick Q+A.”  We’re looking for more retailers to feature in 2013, let us know if you’re interested!
  • Recovery on the East Coast seems to have progressed, but the relief effort is not over.  The American Red Cross is still accepting donations here.

Last, but certainly not least:

We’ve got NEW PRODUCTS! 

Our candy tubes are a stylish and versatile way to hand out favors at your next event.  Add more fashion points to your party by serving drinks in our glass milk bottles and cupcakes dressed up in our wrappers and toppers.  Also new, our MOD Pattern designs and MOD Kid Birthday designs.  Our MOD Patterns feature today’s hottest patterns like chevron, stripes, and dots giving your favors a fresh look.  MOD Kid Birthday designs were made with youngsters in mind and include popular themes such as pirates, princesses, and superheroes!  Scroll down to see some images of these new products and click here to view the official newsletter.  Click on the image to see our entire collection of new products in the Event Blossom store.
