Coton Colors {& a Giveaway}

Have you ever heard of Coton Colors?!!
Well, even if you have, I'm about to tell ya a little bit about this wonderful company!!

Founded in 1995, Laura Johnson was inspired by the celebrations of her own life. As Laura's life progressed through the years and her family grew, the Coton Colors line evolved and still continues to!
Coton Colors' products are some of the most coveted pieces for decorators and gift seekers across the nation. Their products are available in more than 3,000 stores (WOW!). With it's humble foundations (Laura's own garage), to the company it is today, not much has changed in being a leader in the giftware industry encouraging it's customers to mark all the celebrations of life with fervor!

{For several years I have bought many of their products and I love each and every one!! I guarantee you'll love their stuff!!}

So, I'd like to share with you a couple of the things that Coton Colors offers to celebrate life with:

Happy Everything
The most popularly known product of Coton Colors is their Happy Everything line. Their top-selling piece is the Original Platter which features 69 interchangeable attachments (WHOA!).  The range of attachments aren't limited to just the 4 seasons and major holidays- they are for the Happy EVERY Day (and changing the attachments for different events is so much fun)!!! It would be special to have an attachment for your child's birthday, the first day of school, high school graduation, or even a family member's wedding day!!
HINT HINT: These make awesome gifts for teachers, parents, and friends :)

Happy Everything has also been made into other great pieces (as seen below)!!
Don't these just make you SMILE?!! 

Magnetic Chalkboard, Picture Frame, Wreath, Message Board, & Cookie Jar


{I love my Mini Platter (on the R) & enjoy decorating it for the holidays!}

The NEWEST addition to the Coton Colors family is the "Happy Everything Cookbook"!! :) 
The book includes:

* 70 delicious recipes paired with beautiful photos & tips on every page
*Decorating ideas that include Coton Color products with style & simplicity
*All of the recipes are centered around 11 Memorable events 
*Each individual recipe is unique enough to be made for any occasion

The cookbook is so new, in fact, it hasn't even hit the stands yet!! If you Pre-Order your cookbook before November 3rd, you will receive a signed copy by Laura (the creative Designer) & Susie (the fabulous Cook)!!! They are also having a Happy Everything Cookbook Holiday Tour (check to see if they're coming to YOUR city) to share their cookbook & meet fans!!! 
What a perfect gift to give to someone that loves to cook and host parties!!

Think Pink
Since it's still the month of October, I thought I would share that Coton Colors is dedicated to the cause for raising breast cancer awareness. For every pink ribbon attachment or believe/hope/pray ornament purchase, they are donating $1 to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.
The ornaments can even be personalized with a name & date or a special event!

There are several different seasonal items to use in celebrating throughout the year. I especially love their serving pieces for a holiday party or family get together! (The new chevron pieces are my favorite!!)

They have great items for Thanksgiving Dinner, a Harvest Party, or enjoying Halloween

Throw an Easter Egg Hunt with these sweet items :)


Have a girlfriend getting engaged or married? These make great gifts!!

The Christmas items are SO stinkin' cute & they even have Religious themed products!
{I have several of the Christmas ornaments and like hanging them on my tree each year!}

How cute are the new Chevron pottery pieces?!

Coton Colors has an awesome selection of leading Universities (39) and Greek (15) items to choose from!! They have ornaments, picture frames, plates, wreaths, baby gifts, wedding gifts, and platters (you name it!) to tailgate with or decorate on Gameday!! Grab some gear and cheer on your favorite team!!
