Turn on any TV right now and you are seeing ads for Christmas already.  {sigh}  Halloween just ended, didn’t it?  While everyone at The Stationery Studio is ready for holiday shoppers, we also turn our focus to helping those in our community.  The Stationery Studio is hosting a food drive November 1 – November 28 to help fill their community food pantry this holiday season. Partnering with #GivingTuesday, TheStationeryStudio.com is hoping to raise awareness of the need in our community and fill their local food pantry.

Our food drive will benefit the Vernon Township Food Pantry. The Stationery Studio has been committed to helping the Vernon Township Food Pantry for years and chose them as their #GivingTuesday partner this holiday season.

#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.

Do you have something special you do for #GivingTuesday?  Or do you give back in some other way during the holiday season?  Share your story in the comments below.

Chicago Cubs Win the World Series #FlytheW

3 Nov

tss-cubs-win-002

Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock, you’ve probably heard that the Chicago Cubs won the World Series yesterday. They are our hometown team, so you can guess that the excitement level is pretty high at our office.  A lot of us are pretty tired today staying up late to watch the Cubs win in the 10th inning.  I think we all still look pretty good considering!

The Chicago Cubs haven’t won the World Series in 108 years, so this is huge for the people of Chicago.  Are you a Cubs fan? If so, check out our personalized Cubs Tervis water bottle and cups that would make a great gift for any Cubs fan!

Congrats to our Cubbies and let’s #FlytheW!

(Easy) Halloween Tabletop Decorating

26 Oct

Halloween is just a few days away!  Have you decorated yet?  Or do you wait until the last minute?  I have a few cute (and easy) ideas to help you decorate a tabletop in no time and be ready for trick-or-treaters and guests if you’re having a get together.

To make this entryway table sPoOkY for Halloween, I used a frame I already had.  I bought a sheet of Halloween window clings (you can find at most party stores), and put it on the glass of the frame.  Easy and effective!  I added some “bones” I found at my local dollar store for added effect.

I also added some LED pumpkins that add a fun effect at night when lit up.  The glittery sign can be purchased at a store like Hobby Lobby.  Of course, I added some personalized napkins from The Stationery Studio for the beverages and food.  This tabletop display is set-up for an adult drinking area for my get together.  But this can easily be set-up for a kids party.  You can add some Halloween punch with dry ice for a fun effect.  This is also a great idea for your entryway table where you set-up for your trick-or-treaters on Halloween.

Share your Halloween decorating ideas!  We’d love to hear what easy and fun ways you decorate.

xoxo,

Jennifer
