Pumpkin Spice Latte Recipe

28 Sep

It’s finally Fall and to me, that means a lot of pumpkin spice overload.  I am truly a sucker for pumpkin spice anything!  I don’t think I am the only one, either.  Walking into my local grocery store I am bombarded with all kinds of products jumping on the pumpkin spice trend from Cheerios to pop-tarts!

While you can always visit your local Starbucks for a Pumpkin Spice Latte, I have a homemade version that’s really delicious.  If you’re having people over to carve pumpkins or love to host a Halloween trick-or-treat gathering, you should whip up this great recipe for your guests.  I love adding our personalized napkins as your guests can take them home to make their own Pumpkin Spice Lattes!  Our “A Lot of Text” Napkins are really perfect for any party where you can share recipes from cocktails to your famous chili recipe.  I think they’re perfect for holiday cocktail parties and make great conversation starters, too.

Just a Little Reminder Can Make the Difference

24 Sep

Gift Reminder ServiceIf you’re anything like me, it’s hard to keep track of everyone’s birthdays, anniversaries and upcoming events.  That’s why we created our Gift Reminder Service.  It’s really helped me personally by providing an email reminder 5 weeks before an occasion and 3 weeks before which gives me plenty of time to order something special.

I love giving personalized gifts and I order a couple weeks before the occasion.  When I get the email reminder, it’s the perfect time for me to order a personalized gift.  It’s very easy to use.  To begin, you simply log in here.

Then you will be prompted to enter a recipient name, the event/occasion you want to remember, and the date of the event.  We save all your reminders and you can edit or delete them at any time.  I have reminders saved for Birthdays, Mother’s Day, Anniversaries, Father’s Day, and Thanksgiving.  Why Thanksgiving?  That’s when I order some hostess gifts for parties or dinners we’ve been invited to during the holiday season!

Be that special friend and relative who always remembers everyone’s special events and de-stress your life so you no longer have to worry about all those dates!  Take a few minutes and start your Gift Reminder Service now and stay on top of everything effortlessly from now on!

Best wishes,

Renee

Family Favorite Apple Crisp is a Taste of Fall

17 Sep

Apple CrispIt’s hard to believe that autumn is almost here, but it feels like the seasons are changing.  For me, the sure tell sign of fall for me is when the apple trees are ready for picking. Next weekend, the honey crisps will be ready to pick in Michigan and I’ll be there, bushel in hand, picking my share.  My family loves honey crisps and what could be better than the sweet taste of a freshly picked apple?

I’ll pick enough, of course, to share with family and friends and will bring a bucket of them to the office too for everyone to enjoy.  And I’ll look forward to baking with the apples too.  That’s such a treat! The smell of baked apples and spices and a warm autumn dessert filling the house with that fabulous aroma is the best.  If you are planning an apple-themed party, we love our Basket of Apples Die-cut Invitations!

Basket of Apples Die-cut InvitationsAlthough I normally stick with my tried and true favorites in my recipe collection, I’ve been browsing recipes online lately as I want to try a new recipe this fall.   When I see a 4-star recipe on All Recipes.com, I feel pretty confident that it will be terrific.  The Family Favorite Apple Crisp seems like the perfect choice.  I’m going to make it for some company in a couple weeks, along with a peach foster.  I picked some peaches a month ago and froze the slices just for that reason.  Both, paired with vanilla ice cream, will make the perfect fall ending to my BBQ steak dinner I’m planning.

I am really excited to enjoy the warm sweet taste of this baked apple dish this year and hope you will find some time to enjoy a special dish that sounds good to you too!  Enjoy the many tastes of the season!

Happy fall,

Renee
