Guest Towels for Parties and for The Home

28 Jan

Guest TowelsPersonalized Guest Towels are a great option for many occasions.  I love putting them out on buffets as they are a perfect size whether it’s for a brunch, luncheon or dinner.  I also use them when I set a nice table for a party or holiday.  They add some style and sophistication and of course they are disposable so the clean up is a breeze.

I also love to put Guest Towels out in my powder room for guests to use.  They are pretty and people love using them and it’s so much nicer to use a clean towel to dry hands and then toss out.  They elevate the powder room’s style too and are an affordable luxury.  I also like to give Guest Towels to friends and family for housewarming gifts.  They are usually appreciated and make for a special present.

Bathroom Guest TowelsGuest Towels come in many styles and materials so it’s easy to find just a perfect color, pattern or style for your home, gift or event.  These folded disposables in a tall rectangular size and are available in quality 3-ply solid colors and many specialty materials too.  Their size makes their use very easy when setting a table, buffet or stocking in a powder room.  If you are planning an event at an outside venue, if there is a dedicated washroom for guests they are great to leave in there too.

Some options for Guest Towels are the Solid color 3-plys available in a host of colors, our Linen Like Guest Towels  are air-laid paper and have the look of linen with a thicker, plusher, more luxe feel. The DeVille white guest towels offer a superior finish and absorbency.  The Carte Guest Towels look very fancy and super impressive as they feature a filigree pattern embossed into the napkin creating a unique and impressive design.

For a burst of style and sophistication, there are  Capari Guest Towels.  Thee classic styles are created to achieve a sense of integrity and flair and many patterns are inspired by renowned museum collections. A Guest Towel by Caspari will make a perfect statement for any event.

Then there are the silky feeling Masslinn Guest Towels which add a touch of luxury and made of 100% rayon fibers and have a very soft feel to the touch. The Moire Guest Towels are very pretty too as they feature a subtle wavy pattern within the color.

Guest Towels are perfect for home entertaining, rehearsal dinners, bridal luncheons, anniversary and birthday parties, Christenings, graduations and Christmas celebration.  They are also fabulous at luncheons, a cocktail buffet or a dinner party.  If you are hosting Thanksgiving, Passover dinner, Easter brunch or other celebration, Guest Towels work great setting the table.  Enjoy the sophisticated look and feel at affordable prices with our perfectly printed guest towels.

Best wishes,

Renee

Emoji Cookies for Valentine’s Day

24 Jan

 

I am lucky to have daughters who love to bake.  We try and reserve Sunday afternoons for baking and love trying new things.  This last Sunday we decided to make emoji cookies to share with friends.  Seeing that emojis are still so popular, these cookies were a huge hit!  I even brought some to work to share with coworkers and everyone commented on how cute they were.

If you’re looking for something sweet to gift this Valentine’s Day, these emoji cookies would be the perfect thing!  If you really, really love emojis, you need to check out our personalized emoji gifts that make great Valentine’s Day gifts, too.

Here’s the recipe I used from Karenscookies.net:

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup superfine sugar, or granulated sugar, processed in blender or food processor for 30 seconds
  • ½ tsp. Salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 2 tsp. Vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp. Almond extract or emulsion, optional
  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour.

Cream butter, sugar and salt until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes with mixer set at medium speed (see Dough Preparation and Baking tutorial for more information on creaming times). Add yolk, beat well. Add whole egg, vanilla and optional almond extract and beat until well-incorporated. Add flour; beat at low speed just until flour is mixed in; do not overmix. Divide dough in halves or thirds and wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate until firm, at least one hour and up to 2 days.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Dust work surface and rolling pin with flour. Roll dough to 1/4″ thick, sprinkling with additional flour as needed to prevent sticking. Cut into desired shapes and place on parchment or silicone-lined pans. Bake in preheated oven until cookies appear dry on the surface and are light golden brown on the edges, about 10 minutes (very large cookies may take up to 12 or 13 minutes). Remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks and cool completely before decorating.

For the frosting/glaze, I used this recipe, also from Karenscookies.net:

  • 2 lb powdered sugar
  • ½ C plus 2 T milk (10 T)
  • ½ C plus 2 T corn syrup (10 T)
  • 1 T. flavoring, any combination (I like 2 tsp. clear vanilla, ½ tsp. Almond Emulsion, and ½ tsp. clear butter flavoring, but you can get creative and try different things.)

Mix together till smooth. Divide up and color as desired.

You can use this icing just the way it is for both outlining and filling in. If you’re looking for more detail, you can thicken up your outline color with a bit more powdered sugar if desired. The formula is not set in stone, feel free to experiment with different ratios of liquid to sugar to get the consistency you like the best.

Hope you have fun making your own creative treats!

xoxo,

Jennifer
