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

Thanksgiving DIY: Thank You Note Garland


Here is a fun DIY Thank You Note Garland project to start your Thanksgiving countdown!

Every night up until Thanksgiving, get together with family or friends and write down one thing you are grateful for on one of these cards.  On Thanksgiving day, you can share and reflect on these gratuities as you sit together.   




Hook to string up the Thank You Note Garland
You'll need the following materials for the project:

How to Create the Thank You Note Garland:

Start by stamping all of the envelopes with the Thank You stamp in white chalk ink.

Next, unravel one of the little skeins of paper string, cut it around 6 feet long (or to the desired length) and steam it to get the creases out. If you don't have a steamer, hover an iron over it and burst steam onto it, this will relax the creases.

Now follow the instructions on the package to put one removeable hook up (I used the ones that hold up to 1/2 lb). Tie the other end of the string onto the other hook and put that hook up. Wait an hour (as directed on the hook instructions).

After an hour, you can pin up your empty Thank You envelopes with the mini clothespins.


If you make the Thank You Note Garland, we'd love to know how you chose to write the Thank You Notes. Please leave a comment and let us know. Have pictures? Let us know and we'll feature you in an upcoming blog post.
