Sales: Buy One Get One Free!

Pierogi Picnic: BOGO Buy One Get One Free Sale!

This is a Pierogi Picnic first!

Starting on Sunday, January 12th through Saturday, January 18th, we’ll be holding a BOGO Sale in the Pierogi Picnic Etsy shop! Not familiar with the term? It means Buy One Get One Free! That’s right. For every item you purchase you can add a second item to the cart for free!

Have we lost our minds?! How could we be offering such a good deal? Here’s our reasoning: It’s the New Year and we have a lot of old designs that we’d love to send along to permanent homes to make way for the Spring collection. So by participating in the BOGO sale you’re actually doing us a favor!

Sale terms: To qualify all purchases must be made between 1/12-1/18. The second item must be chosen from the designated BOGO category within the Pierogi Picnic Etsy shop and the buyer must complete the transaction as normal.  Once we see your purchase come through – we’ll refund you for the BOGO item  – and wallah! You’ll be on your way to handmade nirvana.

A DIY Wedding

Katie & Philip's DIY Wedding 2013

When it was announced that my baby brother was getting hitched – I could barely contain my excitement! Not only was I a mega-fan of the bride to-be, I also knew that this wedding would be different. Between the creativity imparted on Phil by our family, and the uber-crafty cunning of Katie, I had no doubt that this would be a DIY wedding to remember!

The Plan:

First things first, the bride made her own handy-dandy wedding planner in which she would list all the elements that would need to come together for this rustic, meets shabby chic, affair. Delegating out tasks across the familial pool, we each had an important part to play. The Krupinski side of the family was in charge of flowers, bridal party accessories, favors, and a portion of the food and centerpieces.

By inviting family and friends to take the lead in the preparations for their special day, Katie and Philip ensured that their wedding would hold sentiment for them, and all the guests who attended.

Wedding Favors: With a little elbow grease and some heavy duty diamond tip blades, my father made over eighty drinking glasses for the guests using old soda bottles. Talk about being green! Each one was then scripted with the event date and initials of the bride and groom making them an elegant and functional wedding favor.

Centerpiece Stands: My brother and dad also gathered used wooden candlesticks and wood from a recently fallen tree trunk, and assembled the most ingenious centerpiece bases (which I plan to steal for use in my own home – shhhhh). White washing each candlestick and gluing the top to a cross-cut of the tree trunk, these homemade cake stands were used for elevating the light and whimsical baby’s breath table bouquets.
