Shatterproof Tritan Glassware Ideal for Summer Entertaining

23 Mar

march-tritan-001For many areas around the country, the long cold snowy winter season is coming to an end and the relief of warmer weather is upon us.  Those glorious sunny days are around the corner and once again we will be enjoying our backyards, planting flowers, setting up the outdoor furniture and welcoming sunshine.

This is a great time to get prepped for all that summertime fun.  Recently I purchased a new set of wonderful non-breakable porcelain enamelware dishes that are as eye-catching as they are practical.   They make everyday entertaining effortless and I’m really excited to use them.  They have the look of china with a delicate aqua blue pattern.

march-tritan-002To accent these dishes perfectly, and as a fantastic alternative to breakable glassware, stylish and durability come together with our Tritan glassware.  These fantastic glasses are BPA free, virtually unbreakable (impact-resistant and shatter-resistant), freezer safe and dishwasher durable (will stay clear and durable even after hundreds of dishwasher cycles).  They feature a remarkable sparkling clarity and the gloss of glass.  And, they can all be personalized with the name or monogram style of your choice.

Tritan glassware is available in several shapes including wine, highballs, coffee mugs, margarita glasses and on the rocks.  It will be such a pleasure not to worry about anything breaking, especially when entertaining outside.  I imagine bottles of our favorite wine and pitchers of our favorite lemonade filling these Tritan glasses and I will never once worry if something drops.  On cooler evenings, the Tritan mugs will be perfect for hot cocoa and coffee.  And they would be really perfect for picnics when I want something nicer than disposables.

Tritan glassware pairs so nicely with melamine trays and pretty personalized acrylic trays, too!  I’m definitely looking forward to summer this year.

Dear summer… we’re ready!

Best wishes,

Renee

Last Minute Gifts are No Problem

16 Mar

march-giftNotice-003You know that feeling, and so do I.  You just remembered someone’s birthday or anniversary and you want to order something special but are not quite sure if the present will arrive in time.  Have you ever tried our Gift Notices tool?  It’s one of the features on our website that I love – and use all the time. The option for a Gift Notice is available on every product on our website.

If you don’t want to might miss giving a special personalized birthday or anniversary or holiday gift, we suggest emailing a Gift Notice from our website to say you ordered something special!  We send the email out promptly so your recipient will know you ordered something just for them!

It’s easy to send a Gift notice. The option is on every product order form.  Just complete an online request and we send an email from The Stationery Studio with your gift message to your recipient to let them know that a gift is on the way!  We can email an image of the exact product ordered or an image of a gift box so they can be surprised later.  The email will also show the production time so they have an idea when to expect the gift.

As I place the order, I can then choose to either have the gift delivered right to recipient or I can have the gift go to me and I can then gift it later.  This is what the tool looks like:march-giftNotice-002a

It’s been a life saver for me.  I’m normally so busy helping others with their gifts that I forget about my own!  But once I send a Gift Notice I feel great that my recipient knows that I remembered them!  So simple and easy.   It’s one of my favorite features and has really helped me out many times.

 Best wishes and happy gifting!

National Pi Day & Strawberry Pie?

14 Mar

pi-day

It’s National Pi Day!  What is Pi Day? According to Piday.org:

Pi Day is celebrated on March 14th (3/14) around the world. Pi (Greek letter “π”) is the symbol used in mathematics to represent a constant — the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter — which is approximately 3.14159.

Pi has been calculated to over one trillion digits beyond its decimal point. As an irrational and transcendental number, it will continue infinitely without repetition or pattern. While only a handful of digits are needed for typical calculations, Pi’s infinite nature makes it a fun challenge to memorize, and to computationally calculate more and more digits.

But to most of us, I think we somehow get the idea that Pi Day is about eating our favorite pie!  I wanted to share a family recipe for my Grandma’s Strawberry Pie.  My Grandma has passed away, but this was a favorite at Spring and Summer family parties.

Strawberry Pie

Make a pie crust (we use Pillsbury ready made pie crusts).  Bake for 10-12 minutes at 400 degrees in a pie pan.

Combine in a saucepan:

–  1 cup sugar

– 2 tablespoons cornstarch

– 1 cup water

Boil until clear and thick.  Remove from heat and add 1/4 cup strawberry Jello mix and a few drops red food coloring.  Cool.  Cut up 1 quart strawberries and lay in pie shell.  Drizzle with sauce and chill for at least 6 hours.

Serve cold and top with fresh whipped cream.

What’s your favorite pie to celebrate Pi Day?  Or do you just geek out and crunch math problems?  Either way … share your recipes or favorite math problems with us.

xoxo,

Jennifer
