Products We Love

We are seriously in love all of Tokyo Milk's fabulous products! It's really hard to choose just one to feature- hand cream, bubble bath, perfum, lipstick- how could a girl choose? And with fans like Martha Stewart Weddings, O Magazine, Marie Claire, Elle, Allure Lucky and Real Simple, to name a few, you know these luxurious items are a must have.

So, to attempt the impossible, here are the few that we think are the stand outs! 

Honey and the Moon Bon Bon Shea Butter Butter Rich Lotion (featured in Marie Claire and Martha Stewart Weddings) Unexpected essences are crushed and distilled then blended with extracts of Japanese Green Tea, Mimosa Bark & Dandelion and then enveloped in moisture-rich Shea Butter to create this coveted treasure. 

Gin and Rosewater Parfum, (featured in Elle, InStyle and O Magazine) a beautiful balance of Citrus Zest, Rosewood, Mimosa and Mandarin

Octopus Bubble Bath, (featured in Lucky and Real Simple) with luxurious chattering bubbles that boast extract of Japanese Green Tea , hydrating Avacado, Olive Oils and Vitamin E. The Octopus Bubble Bath is a delicate dance Linden, Honeyed Rose, Wisteria Petals and White Musk.

Sweetest Donut Birthday Party

It's so much fun to hear about people's party plans when they are choosing their invitations, that when it's time to actually have one of my own I get a little carried away.  This was a donut party (my daughter's favorite) to celebrate her 2nd birthday - and of course lots of the cute accessories were from Fresh Ink!  The donuts were a hit, and of course made it super easy since I didn't have to cook them.  The adorable donut cake was by my friend Kristen Mullen at Crumb.   Enjoy the pics and ideas - Elizabeth

A Circus Party fit for Barnum and Bailey!

We could just do a double-back flip off the trapeze in excitement for the wonderful feature in Mississippi Magazine's current issue!

A big top baby bash hosted by Mignon Espy Edwards for her sister-in-law Alexandria, coordinated by the fabulous Shanna Lumpkin with floral by the talented Tulip Floral and invitations by yours truly! Mignon's goal was to make the event carefree and exciting to match Alexandria's personality, and was it ever! A party that includes sliders, gourmet popcorn, cupcakes, candy and good friends with live circus performers, sign us up every time.

We created mock-circus tickets for the invitations to the party, held at Jackson Country Club, with matching place cards to go on the candy and food tables.  This was such a fun party to be a part of, we look forward to working with all these lovely ladies again in the future!

Kickoff Tailgating Season

The best time of the year in the South, is without-a-doubt the Fall. Not because the weather finally cools down to a tolerable temperature and not because the leaves change to the most beautiful shades of red and orange, it's because football season is finally here! We all may not agree on who the best team in the SEC is, but we can all agree that there is nothing better than spending time with your family and friends, eating good food and watching college football.

So, with the kickoff of football season just about a month away, it's time to get ready to tailgate and our new Tailgate Tables are just the thing you need to kick-off this football season right! What makes these tables so great you may be wondering? Well for one thing, they are narrower than normal tables so they won't take up as much space in your tent, allowing you more space for family and friends! (Normal tables are about 30" deep, but these are just 18" deep) The tables are also almost 9 feet long, so they will span the length of a normal tent and they fold in half for easy transport. Best of all these tables are adjustable in height, from a low "coffee table" height, to standard table height, to "bar height" - perfect for tailgate grazing, if you ask us! 

The covers come separately, so you can have one table - but covers for all of your teams! Ole Miss, MSU, LSU, Alabama, etc. The tables are $126 each, covers are $45 plus shipping, a great kick-off deal for the new season! Stop by the store and check them out, along with all of our other great tailgate gear. 

New silver pedestals.

A large selection of napkins, invitations and all sizes of lucite containers.
