Give Thanks

A Time For Family, Sharing, Caring and Giving Thanks!

Holidays are a special time of year where great memories are created and are cherished for years to come. Turkey day is less than a month away. Lots of planning to be done between now and then; from what’s for dinner, to what time are we eating, to how many we are feeding this year?

Thanksgiving Day is a special time to count your blessings and be thankful for your family, your great friends, caring co-workers and those that love and support you. Be thankful for the wonderfully amazing events that have happened since the last holiday.

If you are planning on hosting Thanksgiving dinner for a large number of people, then setting up buffet style is the way to go. Create an unforgettable, eye catching buffet table by using bamboo display fixtures such as table risers, beverage dispenser, chafers and more. Let’s start with our beverage table first:

Beverage StationCreate a beverage station as pictured to the left by using two of our Square Bamboo Base Beverage Dispensers. This dispenser comes in either two or four gallon capacity size with an optional drip tray. Add the modern shelving to connect the two dispensers and use for displaying such items as cups, straws, beverage napkins or more. This exquisite four-sided beverage dispenser features a removable top loading ice chamber that releases a downward cooling chill that keeps your drinking liquids cool until the last drop. The top portion of the dispenser is made of high-quality acrylic material. Design your own juice bar, also ideal for spas and more.

Bamboo CoolerOur Bamboo Ice Housing unit is 6” wide x 7” deep x 6.5” high that includes the inside pan. Use this sophisticated display in a variety of ways for your party or buffet line. Create a self-serve drink table and have available perfectly chilled prepackaged drinks like juice, cans, and bottles of various types and sizes. Not only use this for your beverages, also keep small finger foods like sushi or desserts cold until ready to serve. The bin is removable for easy cleaning.

Cold JarNeed a place to keep cut fruit cold at the bar, or ice cream toppings chilled at the dessert table? Try our Bamboo Cold Jar Display. This beautiful display includes three jars, lids and the cooling pucks that sit perfectly inside their cut-outs in the bamboo base. This bamboo jar display can be used for a variety of occasions and ingredients.

Bagel StationServe up some bagels, cookies, fruit and more to your guests the morning of Thanksgiving with ease by using this 2-Tier Bamboo Column w/Acrylic Drawers. This two-stack container features acrylic drawers with steel handles and the case is built from a durable 3-ply cross grain natural bamboo for an eco-friendly and natural appeal. So take up less counter space by utilizing this display for more reasons.

Food WarmerThe perfect planning for dinner is to have everything done and out on the table at the same time, but that in not always the case. Keep your food fresh and warm by storing your hot foods in one of our Eco Modern Chafer’s. This very attractive server includes the pan and stainless steel cover gives easy access to the food at serving time. Make use of this eco-friendly chafer for any occasion year round and enjoy fresh warm food every time.

Table RisersDress up your Thanksgiving dinner buffet table by adding some of Candy Concepts table risers. Table risers add height and diversity to the appeal of your dining experience. The Bamboo Square Crate Risers come in three various heights to choose from. Choose all three for a more diverse appearance. Bamboo table risers also come in cube and rectangular shapes. When you’re not using your risers, use as an extra storage bin by turning them upside down bin.

Dessert DisplayDesserts are one of the highlights for turkey day! But by the time you finish stuffing yourself with all the trimmings you’re too full to indulge in the sweet deliciousness of dessert. Display your home baked desserts tastefully with our Bamboo Cupcake Display! This eco-friendly display features three tiers. It’s sleek and stylish design is made for you to customize the perfect dessert presentation for your guest. It is easy to set-up and tear-down when you need to use it for another special occasion.

Celebrate Parent’s Day

 

Celebrate Parent's Day

Why celebrate Parent’s Day?

Remember falling off your bicycle and skinning your knee? Baking cookies with mom? Dad teaching you how to play softball? Or having to call mom and dad at 1 a.m. asking them to come and get you on the side of the road because your car broke down? These are only a fraction of the reasons why we celebrate our parents on . Yes we all have our embarrassing moments, but we learned a valuable lesson from that moment. Funny part is we will remember them and share them with our kids when we get older.

Being a parent is one of the hardest jobs around. Parents should be considered the best jugglers of all times! Between soccer practices, piano lessons, baseball practice, swimming lessons and having dinner on the table by six. All this and still working 40 plus hours a week at their jobs.

The fourth Sunday in July has been set aside to honor both our parents. Similar to Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, it’s time to honor them together. They are some of the most important and influential people in the uprising of yesteryear’s youth, today’s young adults, and the continuing education we as adults sometimes take for granted.

Celebrate those hard working busy parents and show them that their sacrifices did not go unnoticed. Uplift and celebrate family. Whether they are your step-parents, grandparents, or adopted parents, let Candy Concepts Inc. help you celebrate parent’s day by connecting you to a few products that will create memories for years to come.

Butterfly Iron BenchShare With Your Parents

If your parents love the outdoors and spend many hours gardening or planting flowers, dress up their gardens or entryways with one of our exquisite and dynamic floral displays, the Butterfly Bench Plant Stand. Just imagine gazing outside, looking at all your beautiful blooms and buds with this stand amidst them. This stunning flower display is not only unique and eye-catching, the durable metal construction allows you to display inside or outdoors.

 

Cherish Your ParentsWoven Nesting Baskets

Make great gift baskets in these three Woven Nesting Baskets. These nesting baskets are made from cattail straw material with thick looped handles. Use as one or three individual baskets. Store old photographs, art projects from second grade, birthday cards from days gone past or a few of your favorite toys for mom and dad to remember. Grandma’s afghan or quilt fits nicely too. But when not in use, just nestle them within each other as one and use when needed. Popular and very decorative at home or in the office.

Celebrate With Your ParentsWrought Iron Bicycle Wine Display

Are your parents wine connoisseur’s? Give the gift that keeps on giving. Our Iron Bicycle Wine Display adds a cute touch to the décor and turns into a conversational piece. This wine display is shaped like a bicycle and holds three bottles of their favorite wine. Place it atop a bar, counter, or tabletop. Sit back, open up a bottle of wine and celebrate your time together. Perfect idea for bike enthusiast too!

Nostalgia Candy Boxes from the eras of 1980’s, 1970’s, 1960’s and the 1950’s are surely to raise an eyebrow with the parents no matter what age they may be. All of the candy mix boxes include a variety of candy that was popular in the day and 6 – 9 ounce bags of those scrumptious treats. Nostalgia 80’s Mix Candy Box includes a variety of, but not limited to, Sour Patch Kids – Lemon Heads – Blow Pops and more. 70’s Mix Candy Box was in the disco era, that’s when Razzles and Now & Later Taffy danced their way into the hearts of many. The swinging 60’s Mix Candy box includes the ever popular delectable Dum Dum Lollipops and the infamous individually wrapped bubblegum pieces. Step back into Happy Days era with penny candy from the 50’s Mix Candy Box. Bite size candy pieces of Mary Janes. Chewy peanut butter and molasses flavor taffy like candy with a peanut butter center. Oh don’t forget the ever popular caramel squares. Delicious and still very popular today.

To look the word “parent” up in a combination of dictionaries you will find: father and/or mother; a source or origin of a living organism; a person who has a child; be or acts as a mother/father to someone. In the urban dictionary parent definition is as follows: the chains around your ankles until you’ve managed to a) runaway b) obtain a stable job and stable income c) die or d) turn 18.

If you have individuals in your life that fit into any of those definitions; whether they are step-parents, aunts and uncles, grandparents, a single parent, or adopted parents; they are your parents.
