Care for a Spot of Tea?

comments 0

Teatime can be a great way to relax on the coldest of winter days. Besides being a ritual that invokes feelings of serenity, teatime possesses a culture all its own. Whether you prefer it to be social or personal, teatime can be just the thing you need to escape the winter doldrums.

Hosting teatime is easier than ever when you plan ahead. Start out by making cute invitations, then send them out to 5 to 7 of your closest friends. The more intimate you keep your group, the easier it’ll be to prepare snacks for.

Next, it’s time to plan the menu. Try looking at tea magazines or by visiting tearooms to get a glimpse of the type of fare that is typically served. Light sandwiches, salads, or soups are usually the norm, and of course there are always scones! Make sure you have plenty of scones or biscuits on hand for your tea party. In addition, remember to stock up on creams, butters, preserves, and other accoutrements. Finally, select your tea. Try to choose one that everyone in your party will like. Unsure? Try the staple: English Breakfast.

Now it’s time to host it! Decorate your dining area with delicate fabrics, colorful china, or even play dress up with feather boas and festive hats! This fun approach to tea time can make anyone feel young again!

Wishing to send some cheer to a faraway friend? BisketBaskets.com offers fantastic Tea Gift Baskets that you can send to someone who is feeling the drain of Jack Frost, but can’t take part in your tea time. Filled with cheer and delicious treats, this basket is ideal for sending a smile to those far away.

Welcome Home Students!

comments 0

As final exams wrap up and students begin to return home, should you be thinking about ways to make the return festive? Throwing a “Welcome Home” celebration can be a great way to show your son or daughter that you’ve missed them during the school year, and that you’re proud of all of the hard work he or she has accomplished. Here are some great ideas on how to make your Welcome Home Party special:

There’s Nothing Better…
…than a home cooked meal. Your student will no doubt love the fact that you are welcoming him home with his favorite dish: your spaghetti. Cooking for our college student is a sweet and sincere way to welcome him back from a semester hard at study. In addition, your student will love the fact that this meal isn’t from the dining hall!

A Special Treat…
…makes all the difference. Surprising your student with a sweet treat can give her a boost, especially after the draining experience of final exams. The Candy Bouquets from BisketBaskets.com make for a great welcome home present that your college student will just love. Comprised of yummy candies in a fun display that she’ll love, these bouquets look great set on a desk or on the kitchen table.

Make it a Party!
Celebrate your child’s homecoming by inviting over friends and family that he hasn’t seen in months! Not only will he appreciate the gesture, he’ll love the fact that he gets to reconnect with people he’s been so far away from for so long.

Forget To Buy Them A Gift? It’s Okay – Just Blame It On Us!

Forget to buy someone a gift? Don’t worry – the holidays are hectic, and it happens to everyone – there’s always that one person who presents you with a great gift who you just forgot to buy for. It wasn’t intentional and they mean a great deal to you, but it happens.

Have no fear, BisketBaskets.com is here. All you need to do is order one of our Gourmet Gift Baskets and tell them the gift basket company simply didn’t ship it in time. After all, it is winter, and orders get delayed due to snow and ice, not to mention the high volume of holiday cards and gifts being shipped. Plus, a beautiful gift basket like only BisketBaskets.com has is well worth the wait.

So don’t worry – just blame it on us, we won’t tell 😉
