7 Unique Teacher Appreciation or Holiday Gift Ideas |FREEBIE PRINTABLES|

Unique Holiday Teacher Gifts

As you all know, I am a party printable designer, dessert baker, and sweets stylist, but some may not have known that I am also a teacher. In other words, I may be clandestinely writing a “wish list” for myself right now (shhhhh….don’t let the secret out).

I very much look forward to creating tasty treats with clever messages for my boys’ teachers. Recognizing the effort and time that they devote to my children with a sweet gesture is the least I could do. Afterall, they are molding the minds of our future care providers:)

TEACHER GIFT IDEAS:

1. Box of Donuts {Freebie Printable}

Unique Donut Tacher Gift Teacher Holiday Gift Tag

(DONUT label – Left-click on the label above.  Right-click on original size label to “SAVE AS” to your computer)

2. Dunkin’ Donuts Gift Card 
Message Ideas: “Thanks a latte for all you do!”
“[Teacher’s Name] Runs on Dunkin'”

3. Fruit Juice/Smoothie Gift Card
Message Ideas: “You know how to keep our creative juices flowing.”
“May your creative juices continue to inspire your students.”

4. Cookies – Chocolate covered OREO sandwich cookies {NOW AVAILABLE from CW distinctive DESIGNS}

Message: With you as my TEACHER, I’ll be one SMART COOKIE!

6. Movie Gift Card
Message Ideas: “Thank you for a picture perfect year [or half year]!”

7. Starbucks Gift Card {FREEBIE PRINTABLE}

Thank you to Alphamom.com for this awesome printable!

Additional TIPS:

**** Do not hesitate to give a gift earlier than the actual holiday, perhaps the week before, particularly if it is food. Many students give edible items, but a belly can only squeeze in so many treats at once, especially the day before a big holiday feast!

**** If there are multiple teachers or support staff in the room or on the “teaching team,” try giving one large gift, such as a box of cookies. It usually is more cost-effective and allows the team to share, indulge, and enjoy! Again, perhaps a week early, would be a nice surprise:)

|COCKTAILS & CUPCAKES| “It was all Yellow” Bridal Shower

Cocktails & Cupcakes Bridal Shower
I have the honor to be part of a close friend’s wedding this fall, one who has been right with me supporting, enjoying, and witnessing every milestone in my own life. Now it is my turn to be her loyal supporter as she embarks on a lifetime of happiness with the man of her dreams.

Inevitably, planning a unique and unforgettable bridal shower was the intentions of all those involved (close friends and bridesmaids). It made it very simple when you have a handful of crafty people, organizers, a dessert table business owner, a bartender, and a graphic designer. We wanted to incorporate all of our talents; thus, we brainstormed the Cocktails & Cupcakes Bridal Shower, with the color palette of yellow. How can you look at yellow and not smile? Because the future groom sings and plays guitar in a band, we loved the idea of tying in lyrics from Coldplay’s “Yellow” to really celebrate the love that the future bride and groom have for one another. Multiple yellow patterns and fabrics were used for dimension and a few hues of blue were added to complement the bright yellows.

Fifty guests were greeted with a wall-to-wall layout of cocktails, cupcakes, desserts, and food. Drinks, such as the signature cocktail “Yellow Bird,” red/white sangria, and wine were served in mason jars with straws and wine glasses. Guests were able to label their drink with yellow washi tape and chevron stock labels.

Cheap Centerpiece Ideas

The desserts and favor table were setup by CW distinctive DESIGNS, which included strawberry mascarpone shortcake, mousse shooters, cannoli dip, and gourmet stuffed cupcakes made by Little Sweet Cakes. The favor table included treats, such as gummy candy, gumballs, individually boxed cake pops, and brigadeiros all in yellow hues.

Decorations were coordinated and executed by the entire bridal party, including the balloon backdrop and gift wrap backdrop with tissue pom-poms. OOOH, thank heavens for good friends! They executed the tedious job of placing one balloon down at a time.

NYC Candy Tables

The white linen tables were adorned with yellow-patterned table mats, and wine and beer bottles spray painted yellow used for vases, along with light blue mason jars, filled with lemons.

Planning my kids’ parties and significant events are always the highlights of my year.  Yet, seeing time fly by is so bittersweet:)  I was so happy to be able to capture some of the best parts of this fabulous, sunny day celebrating the birthdays of my two boys (ages 1 and 3 but ONLY a day apart…people can’t even plan that if they tried).  They are blessed with so many friends/family memebers and I wanted to be sure that we accomodated all the different ages of the guests.  Something for everyone!  Hope you enjoy viewing some of the details of this special day…
