    Happy Cinco de Mayo

    Friday, May 3rd, 2013

    From May Day to the 5th of May, let’s lots to celebrate this month!  That’s right, Cinco de Mayo this weekend. It is time to celebrate the rich Mexican heritage that originated just south of us, but which fills most corners of the United States today. While the celebrations encompass many things, cuisine, culture and music steal the show.

    invite – margarita

    First things first, let’s pour ourselves a margarita and think about Mexico and what we know about it. For starters, it is directly south of the USA, bordered by the Pacific Ocean to the west, the Gulf of Mexico on the east and Guatemala and Belize to the south. It has a history going back over 3,000 years, to a group known as the Olmecs. Maya, Zapotec, Toltec and Aztec cultures came later, each with their own distinct cultures. The arrival of the Spanish in the 16th Century brought a whole new way of life for this 761, 606 sq mile country.

    personalized salt & pepper shakers

    I think we need a shot of tequila to keep the story flowing. Don’t forget to pass the salt shaker! So when the Spanish arrived, they were on the hunt for gold and other riches. They decided to do it via battle, but it was the introduction of smallpox that really made its mark. People in the millions died, leaving them easy pray to the Spanish and their introduction of Christianity and the Spanish way of life. Claimed as New Spain, the new territory was in store for plenty of changes.

    The Spanish nation would not be subservient for long though. Have a quesadilla, pineapple, some chocolate or an avocado and listen on. By 1810 New Spain declared her Independence and officially renamed itself Mexico. The next 100 years saw the country change hands as far as ruling parties goes, but by 1910 the Mexican Revolution had the country in turmoil again. They must have listened to some good mariachi music though, as nowadays it is considered one of the world’s largest economies and an emerging power as far as nations of the world are concerned.

    Regardless of its history, Mexico is a beautiful country and excellent trading partner for our NATO alliance. And this weekend, we are celebrating all things Mexican in heritage. So do a little dance, pop a cerveza or two, and celebrate Cinco de Mayo with this weekend!

    May Day at

    Wednesday, May 1st, 2013

    Today is May 1st. In some parts of the world Beltane or May Day is celebrated. Bonfires are lit, flowers are collected and worn in the hair or used to fill baskets. A Maypole is erected for people to dance around. Traditionally a Maypole was a young tree cut down and then planted in the ground. Often ribbons were tied to it, so that as people danced around it, the ribbons then decorated the Maypole. It is a beautiful sight to behold and there are still places where Maypoles have been spied.

    Like here on this beautiful Maypole bed by Sweet Beginnings! It has a French Country style that is inspired by the hillsides of rural France and will look terrific in any room! The four poster bed also features a wonderful hand painted design and their fabulous embossed carving applique design. Hand crafted from solid maple, birch and poplar wood and high quality hardware and then hand painted, this bed can be customized in many colors to complement your decor. A canopy kit option is also available to make this extra special. This bed is of heirloom quality and can be enjoyed for many years to come.


    If you have a yen to decorate your own Maypole, you’ll need some ribbons. This ribbon just might do the trick. Plus, this 5/8″ personalized satin ribbon with large dots on it is perfect for children’s party favors and holiday gifts alike. This luxurious ribbon comes in a continuous roll allowing up to 45 characters for Upper/Lower case and 35 characters for ALL CAPS. Ribbon comes with 8 to 12 imprints per yard with 1 to 1½” of spacing between each imprint so you can personalize it with a message or child’s name on it.


    What about flowers though? You cannot celebrate May Day without plenty of flowers to go around. If you want flowers for your Maypole dancers hair, then these embroidered flowers headband are just the thing. This is one of the most adorable headbands we have found and every little girl will love wearing it. Made with a white 1 1/2 inch wide ribbon, trimmed with ric rac. Sewn inside is a plastic headband. Embroidered on the headband are three flowers with 3-D white pom pom centers…YES 3-D WHITE POM POM CENTERS!!! Each headband is made with three color variations, light, medium, dark with the ric rac coordinating (not all ric rac colors are going to be an exact match, but they are close enough to be cute). Four colorways available are: pinks, purples, greens, turquoises..


    The reason for all the celebrating is to herald in the coming summer with joy and hope for the new season. Joy that winter was finally over and hope that the new planting season will be prosperous. At, our hope comes in the form of Hope’ Garden. These whimsical hand painted wooden wall letters (“Hope’s Garden” Design)  are the perfect addition for any nursery, children’s bedroom, playroom or bathroom. Each wooden wall letter is hand painted and is one of a kind. The letters are sanded, primed and then painted to match ANY theme you desire.

You can spell out your child’s name for the bedroom or the words “bath”, “let’s play!” etc. to add some fun to the bath and playroom.
