Hi everyone, We are so thrilled to have our new website & blog up and running. We had the idea of giving our site a much needed makeover a while ago, and what better time to start a blog than when changing up your website. With all the new changes we also wanted to incorporate a fun way for our followers and clients to partake in the celebration. Which is why we decided to do an "Our Favorite Things" giveaway! But before we tell you about what is in our giveaway, we wanted to take some time and tell you about us.
We are Leah and Matt Theodosis; husband and wife team based out of Phoenix, Arizona. We were married on a beautiful historic piece of property that dates back to 1918. Fortunately, Leah’s parents own that property which is located on Tremaine Drive in Chandler. Our company, Tremaine Ranch, was founded in 2013 after we devoted many hours designing and creating for our own special day. We are a staging, design & furniture rental company that specializes in all things unique. Here, you will read what inspires each of us. Throwing parties and events has always played a huge part in Leah’s life. Whether it was planning a circus themed birthday party or just inviting friends over for a Greek themed dinner party, no detail goes unnoticed. Not only does Leah spend time planning inspiration photoshoots or events to throw at their Ranch, she is extremely focused on the business side of things. Matt is proud to design and build custom home furniture as well as custom pieces for any special event. He really puts in the time and effort to build what you want because of our mission statement; 'we believe that each client is worth it'. With a recognizable aesthetic and a keen eye for design, Leah and Matt's creative direction, design and styling has created what Tremaine Ranch is most recognized for today.
One of the many reasons why we started a blog is to keep track of what inspires us. Whether that means our travels, fashion, music, photoshoots or other people we know, this blog will be filled with loads of our favorite things as well as our current projects. We hope that when you visit our blog, you will find inspiration too.
Moving forward to the real reason why you stopped by: The Giveaway Prizes! Below, you will see every item that is going into "Our Favorite Things" giveaway basket. We each hand picked different items that could be gender neutral. We have a hard time sending this basket off, but we hope whoever the winner is will love the items just as much as we do, since they are some of our favorite things.
Hummus & More Cookbookby Christian Mouysset & Ronen Givon
We absolutely love hummus and mediterranean cuisine. This is a great cookbook that features loads of unique hummus recipes, mediterranean soups & salads, sauces and of course, desserts.
Orange Blossom Candle from World Market
Our house is filled with different candles. We love the effect a candle can have on your mood. Whether you're bundled up on the couch watching Netflix all day (yeah, we do that too) or entertaining company, candles are always a great way to make your home more comfortable and welcoming. We loved this Orange Blossom scent from World Market. Its botanically fragranced with orange blossom, clementine, Mexican neroli and patchouli. We might need to go back and buy ourselves one!
Clean hands are very important to us; especially after working on a piece of custom furniture outside all day. Mrs. Meyers hand soap is the absolute best. Not only is this soap tough on dirt and grime, but its gentle on the earth, which is super important to us. We love the Lemon Verbena scent. It has a light citrus scent that doesn't over power. It is great for hard working, busy hands.
There's nothing like a delicious cup of coffee to start your day off right. Matt is the coffee drinker out of the two of us. "The best part of waking up, is coffee in your cup!" A rich, bold, cup of coffee is a necessity to get him going on his various projects.
Inside this adorably wrapped gift package, you'll find the Butterball Bath Bomb and a slice of the Honey I Washed the Kids soap. The irresistible, cocoa-butter flecked bath bomb and the soap are filled with honey, aloe vera and vanilla. This duo smells amazing and is compatible with sensitive skin. The best part about LUSH products is that they use fresh and organic ingredients, do not buy from companies that test on animals and most importantly, don't test on animals themselves.
"Hello" Notecardsfrom World Market
Keeping blank cards around your home is a must. You never know when you need to write someone a Thank You card, a Birthday note, or just to say Hello! We love these adorable fox cards from World Market.
Okay, we are not joking when we say this, but treats and food is our top favorite things. We love most candies, but Hammond's Caramel Marshmallows have something insanely special to them. We feel a little better knowing they are all natural and totally support the fact that they are made in the USA. We also are big advocates for peanut butter, so Justin's Organic Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter cups really hit close to home. Organic, fair trade and delicious - sign us up! We recently realized we spend way too much money at Starbucks. After downloading their app, we started to spend more and more on coffee, teas, breakfast sandwiches and treats without evening knowing. Great marketing, Starbucks! We still love you and are willing to give a $15.00 giftcard to the giveaway winner. And last but certainly not least. A Chipotle $25 giftcard. Say it with me... CHEE-POHT-LAY. Just saying the name makes us happy. Leah actually worked at Chipotle for a few years. You would think working at Chipotle, someone may grow tired of the same food, but nope! We love their belief in pasture raised food, how they are focussing on serving local produce and serving food made only with non-GMO ingredients. That is awesome!
The total value of "Our Favorite Things" Instagram Giveaway basket is worth over $100.00! Good luck to all of those who have entered. We will draw a random winner on May 30, 2015 and announce the winner on all of our social media pages. For information on how to enter, you can visit our Instagram account @TremaineRanch for all the details.
