I have done my fair share of bringing meals. But my friend Jen showed me something I have never considered when bringing a meal.
She made it pretty.
She paid attention to the details and let me tell you, I am so pumped up and inspired. I can't wait to bring someone a meal! (after people stop bring me meals, that is)
Take a look at her magic.
Cupcake labels. The boys said, "It's like a birthday party!"
We saved them.
Lemonade. In a glass jar. A glass jar that is so cute I want to start putting our milk in it every day. Aaron said the same thing.
Also, a special drink for the kids--genius! They were so excited.
And wine for the grownups. Also genius.
See how she covered the lids of the jars with cute paper and some twine. Way, way cuter than the disposable plastic containers I always use.
And don't say, "I can't do that." You can.
Jen said she saves her applesauce jars, salsa, what have you, and uses them for this stuff.
Put on a piece of pretty paper or fabric, tie with twine, yarn or string and voila!
We had them for breakfast the next morning.
Now I am ready to re use your glass containers and your ideas and Make It Pretty!
It's all in the details, friends. Happy weekend.
