The School Year is coming to a close - don't forget a special TEACHER GIFT!

Teachers really go above and beyond.  As this school years comes to a close, we find alot of customers looking for great little happies to give for teacher gifts, so we thought we would highlight a few of our favorite teacher gift ideas!
We love the new lip balm and hand cream from "Love+Toast."  It's a new division of the very popular Lollia brand.  The fragrances are very fresh, and the product is such great quality.  Your teacher would love the lip balm during the summer, and she can stash the hand cream in her purse or desk.  $10.50 each.

These adorable cuticle scissors ($4.50) would be so fun for a teacher to have. They are bright and whimsical, you could even add a sparkly nail file ($1.75) to them for a great little gift set!

This laminate line of luggage - Hidachi for Kalencom - is super durable!  We love the little ID wristlets ($23.00) and the insulated lunch totes for teachers!

A couple of other fun ideas for teachers are these cute magnetic clothespins, adorned with bright japanese paper.  $8.95 per set.  Or if your child is known for making messes, give your teacher this adorable leopard broom and dustpan for handling all the spills at school!  $11.95 set.

Of course if you are in a pinch, just give us a call and we can have one of the gifts above wrapped and waiting for you, and you can finish more pressing jobs like baking 2 dozen cookies for the end of the year party!  Fresh Ink - 601.982.0235

Mother's Day Must-Haves! Great gift ideas for Mother's Day from Fresh Ink

Is it just me, or has Mother's Day arrived early this year?  Don't let the early holiday catch you off guard.  Here are some fantastic gifts that any Mom is sure to love!

Make Mom feel like a celebrity with Bedhead Pajamas.  You see Bedhead Pajamas all the time on television - from "How I Met Your Mother" to classics like "Will & Grace."  The soft cotton pajamas are such a treat - she would never buy them for herself, but she WILL LOVE THEM!  Above are 2 new cotton styles.

This is a new cotton-stretch "loungewear" style by Bedhead.  So, so comfortable!

Lollia bath and body products are truly a luxury.  The hand cream is so smooth and smells divine, and the bubble bath is so pretty you will want to keep the elegant bottle on display in your bathroom!  We have a new fragrance - RELAX - arriving at the store on Friday so make sure and come by and check it out.  Relax by Lollia would make a great Mother's Day Gift!

Does your Mom like to entertain?  Beautiful, sparkling Tamara Childs Glassware is a gift the entertainer will use for any occasion.  The gilded glassware mixes and matches perfectly with Annieglass - and brings a different dimension to her collection.  Shown here are some of the vases, and the adorable dip bowls are so useful!

It is a great idea to start a collection for your Mom.  Then you can add pieces to her collection for other holidays.  We have lots of ladies that have recently started collections of Juliska dinnerware and glassware.  We get so many ladies who want to start a new dinnerware collection - Juliska is durable enough to use every day, but elegant enough to use in a formal tablesetting.  You could start mom off with a set of hand-crafted wine glasses or champagne flutes - or an elegant ceramic serving piece.

John Wind jewelry has a classic element but with an updated twist.  Layer on charms and chains for a truly unique look.  The silver monogram collection has just arrived - so affordable and beautiful.  You can clip the charm onto a silver chain, bracelet, or strand of pearls that you already have.

These adorable japanese houseshoes with silk cabbage roses are so happy!  They are under $20!

Or if your mom is getting ready for pool season, you can pick up one of these great beach and pool totes for her.  They are super durable for summer outings or even overnight trips.

Stop by Fresh Ink and we will be so happy to help you pick out the perfect Mother's Day Gift for your mom!  601.982.0235 or info@fresh-ink.com with any questions!

Bridesmaids Luncheon Tablescape at The Gardens of Madison County 2010

This year for The Gardens of Madison County, Fresh Ink created a beautiful tablescape with the theme of a Bridesmaids Luncheon.  The vibrant invitation below from Inviting Company served as our inspiration!

We were fortunate to start with a delightful setting, a covered outdoor patio in Overlook Pointe.

We moved the comfortable seating benches to surround a round table and covered the table with a punchy black and white polka dot tablecloth!  Then we layered Juliska chargers & glassware, colorful napkins, daisy napkin rings.  The Juliska champagne flutes would be a gift to the bridesmaids from the bride. They were filled with flowers for the table and for the girls to enjoy over the weekend, but then they can enjoy toasting another special occasion with them some day, or start a collection of their own.

The personalized melamine plates were one of our favorite elements!  They serve as THE CUTEST placecards, but then they are a wonderful favor for the girls to take home from the party.  The ladies who are hosting the luncheon usually send home a favor with the girls who attend, and these plates are so unique!

The polka dot Scout tote bags are another gift from the bride to the girls.  They are wonderful for toting rollers, shoes, and accessories to and from the church.  And they can also use them for the pool or the beach!

Despite the cloudy and rainy weather, the table sparkled with Juliska glassware and pops of color.

A beautiful Juliska pitcher served at an elegant vase for pretty tulips.

Here is another picture of the overall scene.  Thank you to all of our friends at MRA and The Gardens of Madison County for including Fresh Ink.  For more information about any of these products please contact Fresh Ink - in Highland Village - 4500 I 55 North, Suite 136, Jackson, Mississippi - 601.982.0235 or info@fresh-ink.com.
