Worthwhile Wednesdays~Summer Style Entertaining (Posted Late on Thursday)

For whatever reason, my Worthwhile Wednesday post for yesterday decided it didn't feel like posting. I wrote it yesterday morning, then zipped out the door to head to Columbia for Molly Lou Mini #2's 9 month checkup and assumed all was well in Blogland...wrong. Then, you all know I missed last week's WW edition due to my internet "issues"...thanks ATT. I am really trying to let go of all my frustration and aggression towards those AT&T customer "service" employees. So, better late than never, right! Hope you're all having a great day.

Before we start WW, I just want to remind everyone of the BLOWOUT contest that was unveiled yesterday. You know you're excited. Make sure you enter all those times and tell a friend...all the cool kids are doing it. Check out all the details and the fantastic prize pack here.

This week's Worthwhile Wednesday will have to be good to make up for last week. This week's topic all involve products from the Molly Lou Gifts shop that are perfect for summer entertaining or gift giving. You know how the summers are filled with engagement parties, weddings, showers, birthday parties, etc. these products are great choices and are sure to make you the envy of the party.

We have just added personalized coaster sets to our line. I am in love. It is quite sad how completely excited I am about this new item. We have fifteen different designs. They come in packages of 25 and are wrapped in clear packaging with a coordinating ribbon. These are perfect to throw out at your own party or to give as a unique hostess gift or would make a great housewarming gift.

For those summer soirees, you will have the buckets full of cold beverages and what better way to add some personal style than to add one of our personalized name vinyl decal graphics. We have over 25 color choices, so pick a decal color to coordinate with your bucket color in your favorite colors or party theme. We also have monogram ones too! The minis have monogram and name ones on buckets in their room for stylishly organizing toys and books! At $11, these are a great deal and are also perfect to add to a bucket that you put presents in...reusable and personalized gift bag!

You know I love our personalized platters and trays. I mean they are perfect for EVERY use. Throw some burgers on them, cookies/brownies for the yummy dessert, chips and dip to get the guests started, or place fun drinks on the trays to serve your guests. How could you not love this preppy bbq platter? I have given so many of these platters with the couple's name or new monogram on them for shower gifts or throw some personalized plates to coordinate your platter choice and you have a great wedding gift. These melamine items are guaranteed not to break and are dishwasher safe. You really can have a lifetime of memories in these fun pieces!

Taking the minis to a summer cookout or party? Bring along one of our personalized puzzles! I love these and think they are so creative and unique. You choose your design style and personalization. The minis will love putting together a puzzle with their name on it. Makes a GREAT birthday gift for a little mini in your life and you know the other mother's at the party will be jealous of your creative gift and not the same Dora the Explorer or Transformers gift that the birthday child got three of!

Have a great time at a summer dinner or get together, be sure to send a personalized note to the hostess thanking her for your evening. Use one of our Kara Rosenberry dragonfly notes...perfect for this summer season. We also have adorable bees, chandeliers, nest, cupcakes, cakes, and more.

Have a great day! Cheers!


  1. You know I love the platters, but those coasters? I die. Too cute!

  2. Hubby and I have the Pink and Green bbq platter and are planning on bringing a sweet to a get together on the fourth on it. Know that the hostess and others will want to know where we got it.
