Beautiful thistles outside the Thistle Stop Cafe Twenty years ago Rev. Becca Stevens looked for a way to house four women survivors of trafficking, addiction, and prostitution. She chose the thistle to represent her mission. Often viewed as a weed by many, this prickly plant, if allowed to grow, becomes a royal purple flower with a soft center.

Thistle Farms, located in Nashville, has grown into an organization recognized around the world for helping women overcome these issues. By providing jobs making bath and body products by hand for over 70 survivors, Thistle Farms offers hope to women whom society could have easily forgotten. They recently added Thistle Stop Cafe and are expanding their retail division. This means more employment hours, improved benefits and health insurance, and new job growth to help the women get out of poverty. Becca was recently voted one of CNN’s Top 10 Heroes of 2016.

Wine Bottle Packaging

One of the prettiest ways to wrap a bottle is by using clear cello. Whether you are wrapping a wine bottle, oil and vinegar or bath and body products, Nashville Wraps Clear Cello Sheets in the 18×30″ size are wonderful to use. This ultra clear film lets your products shine through while giving them a dressy look without a lot of time or expense invested.

For smaller items like votive candles, soaps, bath bombs, ornaments, or fruit, the square 14×14″ size is great. Simply place your product in the center of the cello sheet and pull all the corners up and together. Give it a twist to tighten making sure all the corner points are up. Then add a Pre-Tied Satin Bow or Raffia Ribbon. [read more…]

Nashville Predators Smashville HatsThe Nashville Predators did something last week fans haven’t seen in franchise history: they swept the Chicago Blackhawks in Round 1 of the NHL playoffs! Here at Nashville Wraps we love our Preds. That is why we are extra proud to work with the Nashville Predators Foundation on gift packaging. We are such big fans that during the playoff season we are even decked out in Preds gear at the office.

Nashville Wraps Customer Care Agent Laura Turner (shown with the Preds and her husband Gary below) has been a fan and season ticket holder from the very beginning. Laura says,”It’s easy to support the Preds given their character on and off the ice. They are very active in Middle Tennessee, individually AND via the Predators Foundation which my family wholeheartedly supports. They make watching the games an exciting and fun family event.” [read more…]

Enfusia The Woodlands DebraDebra Myers began her business Enfusia after she developed the irritating skin condition- eczema. Debra found traditional bath and body products only irritated her skin. That is when she began to experiment and formulate her own products which became the seed that blossomed into Enfusia.

Located in The Woodlands just north of Houston, Enfusia has evolved beyond their eczema line and now focuses on bath products.  Debra says, “We’re dedicated today to our vision of ‘every bath beautiful’ and that goes into all our products, from their appearance and packaging to their benefits to our customers’ own beauty routine.”

These early recipes of almond oil, lavender and rose essential oils soothed Debra’s dry skin and didn’t leave her scratching. She then started mixing even more essential oils and natural ingredients to make lotions, washes, bath bombs and salts. After she outgrew her kitchen, she partnered with an herbalist and a chemist to give the products stability and integrity. Enfusia’s full line of bath and body products are created with the infusion of botanical extracts, vitamins, essential oils and natural ingredients with no harsh chemicals.

Their Cocoon Baby line of products includes a hair and body wash, a gentle moisturizing lotion, and soothing massage oil. There is also a Men’s line Proper Gentleman and Bee Friendly line of vegan lip balms. Every product is made in the USA with organic and natural botanicals and extracts without SLS, paraben, phthalate, silicon or wax, all 100% vegan and gluten free and cruelty free.

The Good Batch 1The Good Batch in Brooklyn, New York is not your average bakery. They specialize in a Dutch delicacy called stroopwafels. Let’s just say they are exceptional! Owner & Chef Anna Gordon started selling these hand-pressed, waffle-like cookies at the popular Brooklyn Flea – one of New York City’s top flea markets.

The Good Batch stroopwafelsThe tasty cookies were extremely successful, which thrilled her husband Steve. His family is originally from the Netherlands where stroopwafels were invented in the 1800’s. With a love of all things pastry and a degree from the Institute of Culinary Education, Anna mastered this cookie Steve’s family had dearly missed. The demand for her baked goods quickly grew and included ice cream sandwiches, cakes, pastries, and cookies, which can be found at fine retailers throughout New York City. [read more…]
