Set Your Table With East of India

Warm weather brings many different occasions to celebrate so I rounded up a few 'unlikely' uses for some of our products you need to include at your next BBQ or dinner party. 

This past January at the New York Gift Show I got talking with an event planner who said she loves to use our paper chains as napkin rings. The thought had never even crossed my mind- but look how cute it is! 

Item E1993

Lets face it, confetti has a bad rap. However, East of India's vintage inspired confetti adds character and depth to any table or display, not to mention you wont find traces of it stuck in your carpet years later.

Item E1156

East of India's porcelain letters are probably the most versatile item in the line. I have seen customers use the letters to package gifts, make jewelry, and even as drink markers. Each letter comes with twine making it easy to tie around a glass stem.

Item E4060 & E4062

Take a closer look!
Item available individually or as a unit 

We use ribbon all the time for packaging purposes but did you ever think to use it as a napkin ring or to tie on a place setting embellishment such as a flower or an herb?

Put Your Stamp On It

Whoever said its what is on the inside that counts never had a gift that looked this good.

Emulating this look is easy. Instead of your usual wrapping paper and ribbon opt for kraft paper and twine. East of India makes a thick and well-crafted label available in cream, kraft, and black. Using free hand write the sentiment. Get creative and play with different scripts, better yet try a calligraphy pen! Talk about an expensive look for far less.

I absolutely love the aesthetic of these gifts. It looks as though a lot of time went into creating these DIY masterpieces, but don't let their craft fool you. The main component of these looks is paper tape.  If you have never experimented with paper tape before, I highly recommend it. A practical office supply but with a stylish twist. You're not going to want to hide this tape! 

E3761, E3762, E3764, E3765


  Another way to spice up any gift tag is to add your own touch, put your stamp on it so to say. We have this great To and From Rubber Stamp that along with one of our labels makes for an easy DIY tag. Have extra time on your hands? Use an embosser pen and heat gun to leave your recipient in awe!

This Spring We're All About The Eggs

It's inevitable, eggs are trending and can be seen gracing major magazine covers and social media pages nationwide. Even with Easter on the near horizon, we expect to see this trend last well into fall.

We introduced the Decorative British Bird Eggs to our U.S. line last January, with much success. All of our egg's are hand carved and painted with both diligence and care. The best part about our eggs is that they are non-perishable, so go ahead display them all year round!

Available in 8 different designs crafted to emulate the real deal

Create a nest to display your eggs! All as you need is a glue gun, aluminum foil, foliage and a little imagination.

First, take the aluminum foil and either using your hands or a small ball form the edges of the nest. 

Once the nest has taken shape take a little hot glue and using pieces of twine, grass, twigs and moss build your nest. 

 Use stands of pearls for a glamorous touch or yarn and newspaper to keep it like the birds do, simple.

Tablescaping with eggs is easy, create a playful look for your Easter brunch.

Or make it a whimsical affair with a mix of fresh flowers and vintage jars.

Pile them all in a glass dome with base to make a dramatic modern showcase perfect for any library.

Eat. Drink. Marry

Wedding season is right around the corner, and so is my wedding! My fiance' and I are getting married this September in Martha's Vineyard, a small island off of Cape Cod Massachusetts. 

Planning a wedding can be stressful (hence eat, drink and then marry) so as the point of contact for East of India U.S. I have pulled a few of my favorite Wedding products to use on and leading up to your big day!

Asking your maids or MOH can be as simple or extravagant as you want it to be. I found our "Special Bridesmaid" Heart Dish (item E2081) to be a perfect way to ask my maids. The heart dish shares the sentiment and acts as a keepsake to hold onto for many years to come.

I don't know about you, but I LOVED making paper chains back in the good ol' days of Pre-K. We have an array of chains from "To Have and To Hold" to "Just Married" and they are so easy to assemble.

After I got engaged I was ecstatic to see my cubicle at work adorned with several of the
"Congratulations" Paper Chains (item E2004).

One of my absolute favorite items is our "Mr & Mrs" Medium Framed Picture (item E4551). 
As seen below the item completes the table's look. I plan to display this item at my Rehearsal dinner's dessert bar.  
Item E4551 as seen on E! hit TV show, Eric and Jessie
