The Big Game is close and we know you, you want to throw an awesome party and have fun with it, what we love most about this season is the halftime show (just kidding, we also watch some of the game, right?)  No matter if you’re a diehard Seahawks fan or your blood is blue, red and you love Tom Brady. This is the type of day when you make great appetizers and fire up your grill, so you will have time to watch Katy Perry halftime show, laugh at the commercials and celebrate the big win.

Bring it on 2015!

2015 manifesto

It’s almost 2015, we are sitting here writing our New Year’s resolutions. It’s been an amazing year filled with great typography, lots of stitching, bright colors and monograms plus amazing food, drinks and people. Now it is time to plan for the next year and we’re focusing on being well, being healthy and ready to break old habits. So we are ready for 2015 with our manifesto and we invite you to share yours with us!

2015 M+G Manifesto

Be well and shine: exercise and eating healthy makes you live longer, makes your skin brighter and improves your mood (like when you’re shopping for a new bag)

Ready, Set… Celebrate!


Hosting during the holiday season can be a handful, you need to coordinate, prep, cook and on top of everything: ENJOY! It can be a difficult task, but we are here to give you some tips so you can host with style:

Put it in writing: Make lists for everything you need to do, from grocery shopping to sitting arrangements, everything in writing makes your life easier.

Make it personal: if you’re hosting for the first time make sure to “leave your mark” Use monogrammed napkins, fun trays, mix and match. We love our Typographer’s Linen Dinner Napkins

  • The Box…think outside of it! Holiday events, though fun, can become repetitive. So to avoid that usual dinner get together, create a theme for the gathering and allow for some unexpected touches. Just because you’re having a holiday meal does not mean you have to decorate with only red and green (actually please don’t do that).
