and that’s why you should give her a gift that will last as long as your love! Having a mother start a business later in life and allowing her daughters to share in the adventure is one of the best things that has happened to us. We’re grateful every day that we can create designs we love, with the people we love.

We’d like to believe that every day is Valentine’s Day when you’re in love but who wouldn’t want to treat themselves to chocolates around this time of year?
We discovered Knipschildt Chocolatier years ago while driving to and from work – Fritz’s store was just around the corner from our offices and we were always curious as to what kind of delicious confections we could find there. After reading that Gourmet magazine rated Knipschildt one of the best chocolates in the world, we knew we had taste them… Needless to say, Fritz’s chocolates are exquisite – from the look, the taste, the varieties and the packaging, his dedication to creating a memorable and delightful experience is unsurpassed.

So this Valentine’s, we thought we would share our love for chocolate (and flowers!) with a special gourmet giveaway – this beautiful handmade box of truly decadent Rose Truffles (rich dark chocolate truffles with a rose water infused dark chocolate ganache center topped with an edible rose petal) from Knipschildt.
Knipschildt Chocolatier - Rose Truffles
All you need to do is send your name and address to TheBuzz.Giveaway@gmail.com and write “Rose Truffles” in the subject line. Only one entry per giveaway is allowed and all entries must be received by 11:59 pm EST on Saturday, February 13th, 2010. The winner will be announced on Valentine’s Day, Sunday, February 14th, 2010. And please don’t worry, we will not share your address with any other parties or use it for any other purpose but to send you your prize!
For those of you who need a gourmet chocolate fix any time of year, you can shop online at Knipschildt Chocolatier or visit Fritz’s cozy cafe, Chocopologie, in the historic downtown area of South Norwalk, Connecticut.

Who knew when we launched this blog ten months ago, we’d have so much fun writing about beautiful botanicals and fabulous flowers… and sharing our passion for divine design with our readers. Yet here we are, celebrating our 100th post, and we still have so much more to say!
In honor of this benchmark, we thought you might enjoy a glamorous giveaway: a personalized, signed copy of Nancy Corzine’s new book, Glamour at Home (her gracious gift to you!), and a one-of-a-kind bouquet of tea roses, inspired by Nancy, herself. In fact, you can see a similar bouquet on page 171 of the book!

Diane James - Cream Tea Roses
All you need to do is send your name and address to TheBuzz.Giveaway@gmail.com and write “Glamour at Home” in the subject line. We will pick two lucky winners – one for the book and one for the bouquet. Only one entry per giveaway is allowed and all entries must be received by 11:59 pm EST on Saturday, January 30th, 2010. Winners will be announced on Sunday, January 31st, 2010. And please don’t worry, we will not share your address with any other parties or use it for any other purpose but to send you your prize!
We look forward to writing the next 100 posts and are so grateful for all our fans!
This is the time of year when you wonder whether you’ll be organized enough to take the family portrait and send it out as a personalized holiday card… or not! For those of you who want a fresh and modern take on “Seasons Greetings”, look no further. FabulousStationery.com offers the best of both worlds – fun, colorful cards, each available in three palettes and designed to be as versatile and unique as you are.
Customized Paloma Card
We like the fact that our return address is printed directly on the back of the card so when it is slipped into the signature envelope, it is revealed. So when the envelope is thrown away by mistake, the recipient still has the sender’s address on the card.
FabulousStationery.com is the inspiration of advertising veterans Jay Arnold (the inventor of the signature return address envelope), Trish DeMasi (the design talent who reinterprets nostalgic designs and makes them clean and modern) and Bruce Campbell (the technology wiz who makes the printing of the personalized cards a reality.) Since its launch five years ago, this online store has caught the attention of many national publications like Time Magazine, Marie Claire and Cottage Living, and with a new line available at retail stores, it’s fan base is sure to grow.
With the holidays mere weeks away, we’re so excited that FabulousStationery.com is giving away a $50 gift card to two lucky readers! All you need to do is visit their online store and leave a comment back here letting us know which card design is your favorite and why. You have until November 12th to enter.
You can receive an extra entry by:
– Subscribing to The Buzz by email or to our mailing list and sending us a note via our Contact Us page
– Subscribing to FabulousStationery’s mailing list (on the bottom of their home page) and sending them a note via their Contact Us page
Happy (early) Holidays!
We think Moms deserve the very best so give a Diane James design instead of fresh flowers this year and she’ll know your love is lasting! Our gift to you – a special 20% coupon on any order placed through May 10th. Visit Diane James Home for new spring designs and enter coupon code MOM2009 at checkout. Happy Mother’s Day!
