Pinspiration - bakery packaging

bakery packaging inspiration | creativebag.com

Pinterest is a great resource for finding unique and beautiful bakery packaging inspiration. We sell so many different bakery packaging supplies and I love to see how these simple containers can be re-invented with custom details like printing, stickers and labels. 

If you sell baked goods, your packaging not only adds to your branding message but is also a great marketing tool. Don't you just love the message inside the cookie bakery box above? "Oh, nooo .... COOKIES ALL GONE?" and then the message continues directing you to the bakery's website to order more. Genius!

Do you need custom bakery packaging for your business? We can help you! Find out more about our custom packaging services here.

Even if you don't have a bake shop, there are lots of reasons you may want to purchase bakery boxes from us. We sell smaller quantities for small businesses, home bakers and party favors. You can easily personalize our boxes yourself using baker's twine, custom labels & tags, washi tape, custom ribbon and more!

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream (containers)!

Whether you are looking to package cold or hot food items, our new ice cream containers are just what you have been looking for. 

They are so easy to personalize using custom labels, washi tape and baker's twine. I designed a couple of printables that can be downloaded for free and used on these containers. They would be perfect for a confetti themed party or wedding. 

As you can see above, I used the containers for ice cream. Print the labels onto white cardstock and add them to the lids to let guests know what kind of ice cream is inside. Use these labels if you have guests with food allergies - I promise they will love you for remembering them. If you set up an ice cream dessert table be sure to include small jars with assorted toppings that can be added to the ice cream. You can add a chalkboard sticker to the jars so everyone knows what's inside. 

You can use these containers for more than just ice cream. I poured hot chocolate pudding (yum) into these containers and chilled them overnight before serving. These printable labels allow you to add a person's name as I have or a description of what is inside. 

We've used these for hot soup and cold potato salad! I'm sure that you will come up with many more ways to use these simple little containers.

Woodland themed wedding inspiration

A woodland themed wedding is perfect for a summer or autumn wedding. The natural elements that I've pulled together in the mood boards below are likely something a husband-to-be wouldn’t cringe at either… it’s beautiful, rustic, and casually elegant.

I just finished reading the new Weddingbells (fall & winter 2014) magazine and I was blown away by all of the great photos, wedding ideas and editorials. 

I've been on a bit of a sweet table kick lately because of the YouTube videos we've been working on with the talented girls at Petite & Sweet and when I saw the photos for "Candy Crush" I just had to smile. Just looking at all of the amazing sugary sweets and cakes in this article makes me happy. I'm delighted that the sources for the items featured are Canadian.
