The tags, stickers & labels were either created by me {and one by Rae} or came from the office store.

  1. what a fun party! i love all the little details! and i love garnish! i used alot of their items for my little girls birthday party! i did a post on it if you want to check it out!

  2. Love these festive photos. Your sister’s house is very pretty. We just had a cookie exchange party with the ladies at our church and it was so fun. I wish I would have made tags for each lady to put near her plate of cookies. Your holiday gift tags would have been just perfect for that. I love getting together and hanging out the ladies. So neat!

  3. Appies are also my favorite food group. I could enjoy them at any meal.

    This is such a great idea!

    BTW, your tags decorated every one of my Christmas gifts this year. LOVE them. Thank you.

  4. This is soooo fabulous, I’m definitely going to have to do this! Next year, of course :D There’s just something so wonderful about perfectly wrapped treats!

  5. Where did you get the three-tier dessert stand? I love it! I’ve been looking for one, but haven’t found one I love. What a lovely party!

  6. What a delightful night! Lovely photos. Also, thank you so much for the tag download! I’ve printed them and will be using them… once I get to my gift wrapping. :) (Probably last-minute!)
    Thank you for sharing so generously.

  7. Also, a question – can you post a tutorial on how you created the custom labels? I looked up the ones on Garnish’s site, but would love to know what program you used and how time consuming it was or wasn’t. Thanks!

  8. You’re sister’s home is beatiful – such a talented family. I ilove the baker’s twine and kraft paper. I’ve been using this combo for years and love to incorporate pine cones as well for Christmas gifts. The dollar store often sells the pine cones with a loop (like an ornament) in a bag of ~15 which you can loop on near a bow or tag for more festivity. Thanks for the link to Garnish – great stuff!

  9. new to your blog…stumbled on it the other night with the “preview of this post.” Absolutely precious! Thank you so much for sharing. Garnish is always so tempting!
