For many of us the best part of a Retreat are the Pillow Gifts. Wait – what is a pillow gift? Well it is something that I learned from attending Stampin’ Up! events. If you have the opportunity to go to a Stampin’ Up! incentive trip or other special event they leave gifts for you each night on your bed – so everyone calls them pillow gifts.
That idea spilled over to regular events where roommates bring each other gifts when they room together at a Stampin’ Up! event. And then it’s been carried over by many into retreats – where you get little gifts left on your table throughout the weekend. I still tend to call them pillow gifts even though I don’t actually leave them on everyone’s pillow. At my retreats I leave them on everyone’s table through out the weekend. Just little fun surprises to delight everyone! I love to create them and I think everyone loves to receive them!
I thought I’d share with you the pillow gifts from my Spring Retreat –
Pillow Gifts from the Spring 2018 Stamp, Scrap & Create Retreat.
- Magnetic personalized wooden letter
- Tiny treat box with a chocolate truffle inside
- Silver Gable box with Silver Baker’s Twine inside
- Multi Purpose glue and holder
- Cupcake box filled with a cupcake
- Notepad and pencil
Plus this time everyone received the pink bag filled with supplies that they used on their Make&Takes with plenty of stuff left over to do what they wanted. My next retreat will be this fall – be sure you are signed up for my email list so you will get the details when they are released. It filled up fast this last time!
I had cupcakes made to coordinate with the Sweet Soiree Suite which is what I used for the theme the whole weekend. They were supposed to look like the cupcakes on pages 10-11 of the Occasions Catalog. The full suite of products is shown on pages 12-13 and quite a few things are retiring – so make sure you order them now before they are gone at the end of May!
Supply list for the cupcake boxes:
- Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper (retiring)
- Mini Pizza boxes
- Window Sheets
- Cake Soiree Bundle (the bundle is retiring but the stamp set and dies will be in the new catalog)
- Berry Burst Metallic-Edge Ribbon
