Life is full of milestones; from your baby cutting their first tooth to your “baby” getting married! The moments that matter should be celebrated! Celebrating life’s many “hoo-raws” is one of our many areas of expertise and an area that we pride ourselves in being able to share with so many of our valued customers. The merry-go-round of events goes round-and-round at varying speeds in our lives. While smart phones are truly remarkable at capturing the moments, help savor them a little longer with some of our many offerings.

Here are some of the meaningful milestones that we can help you with!
Marriage – Milestone:
Like it, love it, register for it! We absolutely love working with engaged couples for all of their registry needs – and we do mean all! We have endless grilling and cooler options for him and everything to help make her feel like the hostess she hopes to be in welcoming friends and family to their new home as a couple! Our gift shop is full of exquisite tabletop options, at all price points!
While it is true that our gift shop is hard to trump, the fun doesn’t stop there! Our houseware department is like no other! Bakeware, serveware, cookbooks, small appliances and so many more options abound. Some couples also register for furniture and decorative pieces in our Bering’s at Home department.
Still, others (it is mostly a “guy thing”) create milestones on their grills!
Registering might not technically be categorized as a life “milestone” but for some couples it is a little taste of what converging opinions and tastes has in store! Our staff is sure to help with finding options that are suitable for both parties with quality pieces that will stand the test of time.
If we lost you at the registry, then hopefully we can reel you back in with stationery!! Hello, a milestone isn’t a milestone unless you record it, and what better way to record it than on good looking stationery?! Our Bering’s brides (and grooms) are very important to us and we encourage couples to come in and explore their options from the initial save-the-date cards to their marriage book and thank you cards. We can even help with personalized stamps; Styrofoam cups, coasters – and well, you get the point!
First comes love; then comes marriage; then comes the baby in the baby carriage! Traditional, yes, BUT we embrace tradition however you define it.
Expecting Parents – Milestone: It is so fun when a couple that was registered and/or did their wedding stationery with us, returns to register for their baby shower! The irony is for such a huge milestone of having a baby, the tiny little things on the registry help to make the milestone even bigger and more exciting!
From Feltman Brothers, to Kissy Kissy, to Florence Eiseman and so many more precious brands you really can’t go wrong with our baby registry. In fact, your friends will have a lot of fun shopping in the department. ..Not to mention the convenient parking and friendly customer service! (…A bit of a shameless plug, but it is a nice touch.)
While registering for your impending arrival is a definite rush of excitement, taking a few more minutes to select a personalized baby book from Simple Elegance will serve as a keepsake to pass down to the next generation. All of the milestones your little one(s) experience can be noted in a very beautiful and special way in one of the adorable Simple Elegance baby books.

And since you happen to have made it to the stationery department, then you might need to think about re-ordering personalized stationery to thank friends and family for helping to make the ride so special! There are so many notes of gratitude ahead from your baby shower, to post baby meals. Go ahead and make your life a little easier by restocking your stationery ahead of time!! (Personalized stationery orders generally take 2 weeks – give or take.)
Now life’s milestones have gone from one, to two, to three and more – the fun really begins and the merry-go-round spins even faster!
Religious Ceremonies: Baptism, Communion, Confirmation, Bar Mitzvah and Bat Mitzvah – Milestone: Our baby and children’s department has the best lines of clothing ranging in sizes from newborn to tweens. You are sure to find a frame-worthy baptismal gown or special dress or outfit for that special religious milestone. Be sure to also take note of heirloom quality silver rattles, cups, and more by lines such as Empire Silver, Herend, Reed & Barton and more!

…You guessed what we’ll be talking about next – invitations!! Our esteemed stationers will help you make sure all of your i’s are dotted and your t’s are crossed in a timely manner that even Emily Post would approve of!! Plus, you’ll definitely want to save the invitations in your little one’s baby book!! Just trust us, it will be fun to look back and reminisce.
Birthdays – Milestone: It wasn’t until becoming a mother that I actually considered each and every birthday somewhat of a milestone. Birthdays are sweet and definite milestones!! As previously mentioned, we have your birthday apparel covered! And you already know where to head for party décor and invitations!! Some might even consider their little ones being old enough to write their own thank you cards to be a milestone! …Hmm, things to look forward to!
The children’s and stationery department are the obvious ones you probably think of for birthdays, but let’s not forget housewares!! Serve up tasty treats prepared in some really cool baking options from Nordic Ware to the oh-so functional Tervis Tumblers. (No “ring” on the furniture = yes please!) Yes, our houseware department is a sure bet, but let’s not forget to treat guests to lovely china pieces and serveware from our gift shop! For our Bering’s brides, this simply means to view all of life’s milestones as special and more than worthy of using your pretty china to celebrate!
*Christmas cards are also a fun way to capture year-over-year family pictures, and more importantly to celebrate the season!
Graduation – Milestone: For those of us with tiny babies and tots, graduation might seem like light years away; however, it is imminent and a wonderful milestone to look forward to. (Even though it means they are growing up – sigh!)
From backyard parties to formal sit-down dinners, we are here to assist you with all of your celebratory needs. You might even opt to purchase the special grad a piece of White Wing Label luggage!
If luggage isn’t what you have in mind, then a Herend figurine or Limoges box is sure to make the grad smile!!
As special as milestones are, even life’s biggest milestones are a bit sweeter when you can celebrate it while also saving a little money! Please remember that we offer bridal discounts, all it requires is registering! The same discount applies upon registering for baby. Last but not least, don’t forget your mailer or circulars with your Bering’s coupon(s)!
No matter how big or small life’s milestones might be, we hope to share them with you and your loved ones!
