Fancy Up the Fourth Of July

Friday, June 29th, 2012

Family barbeques and 4th of July parties are usually very casual, consisting of khaki shorts, t-shirts, summer dresses and bathing suits. There are also burgers, hot dogs, corn, watermelon and most importantly, fireworks! But, it doesn’t have to be that way! There are a number of ways to fancy up the 4th of July this year! Whether you are looking for something different this year, or just want a more adult oriented 4th of July, we have some great tips on how to fancy up the 4th!

  • red necktieMenu:
    • Instead of bland burgers and hot dogs, how about some steak and veggie kabobs, fresh corn salad and a red, white and blue trifle. Instead of beer and soda, choose more unique drink options such as various signature mix drinks or fruity water.
  • Decorations:
    • Instead of paper plates and napkins, use some eclectic plates in shades of red, blue and white. There are a number of checkered cloth napkins easily available that are perfect to tie everything together along with some cute American decorations.
  • Attire:
    • Cutoffs and t-shirts aren’t always the most attractive attire to see your family and friends in. Why not make it a special occasion with some nice slacks and ties for the men and dresses or skirts for the women. NeckTieEmporium.com has adorable bow ties for boys that your sons and nephews would look adorable in. For the men, they carry a wide selection of mens silk ties, in every color imaginable. Get a red and blue striped tie that can be worn to the office the next day.

Don’t just have a BBQ this 4th of July, have a lovely soiree with your friends and family. They will be excited to have a reason to dress up and will love the change in menu! Go ahead and give it a try!

Would you ever fancy up your family’s 4th of July party? If so, how?

Father’s Favorite Neck Ties & Gifts

Thursday, June 14th, 2012

Father’s Day is this Sunday, and while our neck ties are all Dad worthy, can any gift measure up to your only Father? 

Necktieemporium dad gift

On top of the stunning necktie you have planned to give Dad, make his day this Sunday or any Sunday of the year by treating him extra special.

Schedule a Day on the Course – Whether it’s an actual course for the golf enthusiast, or on the mini golf for a Dad who just likes to have fun, this gives you a set amount of time that you’ll get to spend together or as a family.

Visit of the Month Club – They say monthly subscription gifts are the gift that gives all year round, but how about the visits that give all lifelong. When you have trouble visiting, or taking time for more than quick swing by, the gift of a monthly occasion goes a long way.    

Shopping Trip - Wait, what? Well Dad needs the accessories to go with his new tie. Spend the afternoon shopping for ties clips, cufflinks to match. Dad will also appreciate a very nice watch that he helps to pick out!

Dads deserve our love, so make sure to give him all of yours this Sunday! What are you giving Dad and Granddad for Father’s Day?

 

Fresh, Fashionable Ties for Summer – Lighten Up While Keeping Your Look Polished!

Wednesday, June 6th, 2012

While most of us wish we could lounge poolside all summer long, with a frosty glass of lemonade by our side and a cool breeze sweeping through, there is still that pesky thing called ‘work’ that needs to be done! Even if you are fortunate enough to work for a company with reliable air conditioning you will still spend at least part of your day soaking up some sun. As for the clear skies, birds chirping and lush green grass? Those are all part of what makes summer so wonderful! But what can be tricky is keeping your wardrobe work-appropriate while also keeping your cool. As comfortable as it might be to don swim trunks and tank tops, chances are good that simply won’t fly.

So what’s a guy to do when summer hits and a shirt and tie are still in order, but his closet is full of darker, heavy patterns, solids and stripes? Fret not, fashionable fellow! NecktieEmporium.com offers a stellar selection of affordable men’s ties that are ideal for summer, in citrusy shades and beyond. You can stay cool while looking cool, and we’re here to help!

A few of our favorite men’s summer ties…

Yellow Dot Patterned Tie

Yellow Dot Patterned Tie: Available in your choice of regular and clip on styles of several lengths, this crisp, clean tie is the perfect example of ‘vintage modern’. Pair it with a short sleeve white button-down and black pants for a classic, ‘can’t go wrong’ look, or find a matching pair of yellow chinos if you’re feeling a bit more daring. There are a lot of fun, outside-the-box colors available in menswear right now, and there’s no time like the present to stake your claim on a whole new look!

Pink and Grey Skinny Tie

Pink and Grey Skinny Tie: One of my personal favorites here at Necktie Emporium, our geometric patterned tie brings shades of pink and grey to life in a vintage-inspired design. Fashioned from 100% woven silk, this striking tie is currently on sale for just $19.99, but looks far more expensive! Effortlessly pair it with white, grey, silver, pink or black and let summer know you’re ready to make some wardrobe waves!

Blue and Orange Striped Tie

Blue and Orange Striped Tie: We think you’ll be pleasantly surprised by how often you reach for this tie! A terrifically trendy tangerine pops against a watery blue aqua that will leave you dreaming of daiquiris in the tropics. Just wait until you get home to fire up the blender – bosses don’t always take too kindly to drinks with umbrellas during meetings!
