Untangled Living Stainless Steel Dishware

I’m a huge fan of stainless steel dishware and it became a permanent staple when I learned all my Disney printed licensed plates were produced with polycarbonate plastic 2 years ago. I quickly decided that safety and quality needed to come first over designs with licensed friends that wanted to entertained thoughts of leaching chemicals into my children’s food.  When I saw the stainless steel dish set from Untangled Living I was so excited to review a product that was amazing quality and provided kids with a child-friendly design they would gravitate towards using. The butterfly and gecko designs beautifully etched into the cup, bowl, plate, and cutlery are awesome.  Check out both adorable designs – I always love it when a designer can take a practical item and give it a design that kids will also love without the heavy influence of commercialism.

I really recommend this for a unique baby shower or 1st birthday gift.  To really get your full value for the product – it should be started with little ones because the bowl and cup in the set are sized for very small hands and portions.  The plate and utensils are a great size for a toddler – 5 year old, but an older child will not get great use from it. The quality is wonderful because it’s 18/8 – 304 steel grade and is dishwasher friendly. I have since purchased this dishware for a gift since receiving mine to review and think the design, packaging, and set combination is good value and makes a special gift. These sets are available to purchase through the Untangled Living site or through various retail stores like our friends over at Nayla Natural Care.

With the beautiful spring weather on the West Coast slowing becoming a staple around here – my mind’s been drifting to upcoming baby showers with Spring being the magical season for celebrating new little bundles. I have a deep affection for great quality stainless steel solutions and will be featuring more products in upcoming articles and a contest will be announced shortly!

Heirloom and Reusable Birthday Party Decorations

I had a moment of sheer joy today when the first reusable banner flag was revealed from the spring line of Green Planet Parties reusable decorations.  The finishing touch of the purple felt letters to highlight this new fabric looks amazing.  The cloth banners are special because the quality craftsmanship is such they can become heirloom gifts that promote new birthday traditions and memories for a birthday child. They are also becoming a unique baby shower gift when the guests know either the gender or name of the baby – cool hey?  These banners have also been bundled into a product called ‘party decorations in a bag‘ and it includes a Happy Birthday banner, matching table runner, and 10 goodie bags all for $89.95, saving the customer 15%  rather than if they ordered the pieces individually. Here is a glimpse of what caused my excitement: 

Also new to the Green Planet Parties decorations is the re-vamp of our popular cotton tablecloth.  We decided to keep the felt appliques detached so it’s more like felt confetti that can be sprinkled or arranged to highlight what is special to the host.  Each tablecloth comes with 12 appliques, more than enough to highlight that special centre piece or punch bowl.  This keeps the party tablecloth in much better condition because for heavy stains, it can be washed in warm water, without the customer worrying about damaging the applique designs.  Check out the two beautiful designs in either butterfly or green leaf theme; matching felt goodie bags coordinate with these tablecloths and are whimsical and fun for both boys and girls.

Inspired by families looking to invest in a reusable ‘Happy Birthday’ banner with children of both genders, Green Planet Parties launched their felt Happy Birthday garland a few months ago.  It has been a very popular item and is the perfect solution for families with boys and girls celebrating special birthdays (mom and dad too)!  They also tie into the butterfly and green leaf theme as the customer decides when ordering if the middle circle separating the words ‘Happy’ and ‘Birthday’ is going to have a butterfly or leaf.   A great coordinating, reusable birthday decoration that will last for many years.  We have learned from our customers that it’s never too late to start these new traditions because girls, boys, moms, dads, grandma, grandpa, anyone appreciates a heirloom party decoration that can be hung and admired on their special day.
