Easy Father’s Day BBQ Ideas

Independence Foil Pressed Guest Towel is perfect for a Father's Day BBQ.

Independence Foil Pressed Guest Towel features many summertime motifs that are perfect for a Father’s Day BBQ.

Father’s Day is coming up on Sunday, June 21. Did you know that the first Father’s Day was celebrated in 1910 in Spokane, Washington? And that the holiday became an official U.S. holiday only in 1972? Put in this context, Father’s Day is a relatively recent tradition. Given its place in the calendar, squarely in summertime, it’s only natural that Father’s Day is often celebrated with a backyard BBQ. And that has us licking our lips in anticipation. Whether your dad loves ribs, steaks, brats or tofu burgers, here are some ideas to help you create an extra special Father’s Day BBQ.

Menu ideas

Cooking Light recipes for Father’s Day  We love this menu from Cooking Light magazine. Steak, jalepeno poppers, potatoes and grilled corn. What’s not to love?

Decor/Theme

Is Dad a sports fan? Use his favorite sports or racing team’s colors to be the basis for the floral centerpiece and table cloth. Or maybe he’s a devoted alum of his college or high school; use those colors. For both these ideas, you can use simple white plates and clear glasses, and let the sports or school colors be the accents.

Napkins

Expression Foil Pressed Napkin  Proudly display your special message on the Expression Napkins. Names, dates, special occasions or sentiments stand out when pressed in one of 15 gorgeous foil colors on your choice of 27 high quality, three-ply papers.

Father’s Day Gift Idea

Notable Monogram Oversized Note Our Notable Monogram Note offers a choice of many exclusive monograms. Raised ink. Folded note. Double-thick paper. Choice of white or ivory paper. Comes with 50 Pinnacle pointed-flap envelopes. Opt for the border, 100% cotton paper, hand-inserted lining or return address to create a luxurious gift.

5 Ideas for Spring Party Tables

Spring Party Table setting ideas at giftsin24.com

Use nature to inspire your spring party table setting.

In a few weeks, family and friends will be knocking at your door. Maybe you’re hosting the family Easter celebration. Or hosting a bridal shower for your sister-in-law. Or maybe there will be a new baby in the family soon. Do you know how you’ll decorate your table? In this happy and wondrous spring season of change, the best and easiest way to decorate spring party tables is to keep things simple.

Use Nature-Inspired Pastels. 

For a color scheme, you can never go wrong with nature-inspired pastels. Whether it’s a soft grass green, lemon yellow, robin’s egg blue, sweet organge or cherry-blossom pink, pastels automatically make people think spring. Choose a white tablecloth with a pastel runner and napkins. Or try a softly hued table cloth with white napkins.

Go Green.

With nature coming alive, there’s an abundance of free greenery and foliage in your yard that would make a beautiful centerpiece. Look around you and see what’s blooming or budding out. Depending on where you live, you might find cherry, crabapple,  or serviceberry blossoms. Farther north, you might find sprays of pussywillow, witchhazel or even young maple leaves popping out. Keep the centerpiece simple, and if you need to, round it out with evergreen foliage or supermarket mums.

Tie it Together.

For a quick way to add festivity, wind some coordinating curling or grosgrain ribbons through your chandelier or around your centerpiece. If you’re lucky enough to be able to have the windows open, they’ll dance in the breeze.

Choose Color Mist Napkins.

Gifts in 24 offers a beautiful array of Color Mist Napkins & Guest Towels that come in so many colors, they’ll match any decor. Color Mist comes in two finishes: Pearl and Tint. Our Pearl finish lends a soft, pastel shimmer to the raised personalization on these high quality, three-ply napkins. The Tint finish features a unique faded, watercolor effect where the matte color fades as it approaches the center of the raised letters.

Give Kids a Place to Play.

One of the easiest and best ways to decorate the kids table is with butcher paper. Spread it out, wrap the corners under the table, and tape in place. Then add a box of crayons and add a few story books, and the kids will keep themselves busy while munching their meals.

 

 

 

Make Your Party Table Shine

Make Your Holiday Party Table Shine

Adding sparkle to your holiday party table is as easy as adding metal, glass and even reflective fabric

How do you create a warm and memorable holiday party table? With an inviting table setting that includes some sparkle and shine! It doesn’t take long to add a little pizzazz. Keep it simple with a few light-reflecting pieces. Choose a few of these ideas, then mix and match with other textures, such as items from nature, and, of course, the aromas and tastes of lovingly prepared food.

Candlelight

Nothing beats the flicker of candlelight to create a warm glow. Gather a collection of candlesticks in the center of your table (ask your family and friends if you can borrow a few) and place matching white, scentless candles in them. Or use plain juice glasses to hold small votives.

Metal

Metal naturally reflects light. The simplest way to add metal accents is by using real utensils. Make sure they shine by giving them a quick swipe with a clean cloth and a dab of vinegar. Or, use a bowl made of silver, chrome or pewter as the base of your centerpiece.

Mirror

Mirrors work especially well when you have a beautiful chandelier above them. But they work beautifully with candles or metal too. Use a mirror like a tray and place candlesticks or metal centerpiece on it.

Fabric

Warm up a table with a tablecloth, runner or place mats that have metallic thread or a shiny jacquard pattern.

Napkins

Our foil-pressed napkins could beautifully complement your sparkling theme. Choose from a range of napkin and foil colors.

5 Fun Ways to Put the “Thanks” into Thanksgiving

gratitude 4It’s all about the turkey, right? Or is it football for you? Pumpkin pie? Maybe it’s the Thanksgiving Day parade. Whatever it is, we all enjoy this big day of feasting and family. But there’s so much more to it. On this special Thursday, we’re called upon to appreciate all our blessings. Read on to learn our 5 fun, simple ways to cultivate that “attitude of gratitude.”

Our 5 Favorite Ways to Develop Gratitude

  • Keep a Blessings Jar – Throughout the year, write the things that give you happiness on a piece of paper. Save the scraps in a decorative jar and read them aloud on Thanksgiving.
  • Create a Thankful Tree – Give everyone a leaf cut from paper. Have them write down three things they are most grateful for in their life. Attach the leaves to a small branch or tree, or create a tree shape on the wall and tape the leaves on.
  • Share thanks – Go around the dinner table and ask everyone to name at least one thing they’re thankful for this year.
  • Start a gratitude journal – Studies show that gratitude journaling can have a positive impact on your emotional and physical well-being. Write about what you’re thankful for to keep yourself in a positive state of mind.
  • Write a “gratitude letter” – Writing a gratitude letter to an important person in your life whom you’ve never properly thanked can have a strong and long-lasting happiness boost. This is especially true when gratitude letters are delivered in person. Gratitude brings us happiness, reduces anxiety, strengthens relationships, promotes forgiveness and is good for our bodies.

Survey your family and see if any of these ideas resonate. Then get to work and make this Thanksgiving the thanks-giving-est one ever!

 “You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness. You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism.”    Erma BombeckYou have to love a nation that celebrates its Independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness.
