Well.. my Valentine's Day was a BLAST!
I had SO much fun making Valentine's boxed lunches.
There were a TOTAL HIT and I can't wait to do it all over again next year!
So... do you want to see how they turned out?
I'll show you! I took a ton of pictures.
It's amazing how something SO simple,
with some small details and lots of LOVE
can turn out SO special!
|Aren't these SO cute?|
I attached an adorable poke-a-dot straw
with some red and white twine, giving them such a nostalgic feel.
|The more... the merrier!|
|I had three types of cakepops:|
Vanilla, Peppermint and Chocolate Truffle.
They matched my "Red, White and Pink" color scheme!
|Here is a view from the top.|
|I placed a menu on the inside cover of the box. |
When they opened the box, they would what was on the inside.
|Here is what it looked like.|
|Here is the top of the box.|
So, on to the BEST part... the food!
|California Salad |
Salted Pecans, Cranrasins and Blue Cheese Crumbles with a Raspberry Vinaigrette
|All packaged up!|
|Don't you just I love 'like items' lined up!|
Yes.. it REALLY makes me happy!
No wonder I love Crate and Barrel's kitchen section.
Everything looks so clean and all the 'like items' so neatly stacked!
|Here is the final package.|
Elegant, simple and perfect in every way!
I tied the box with more red and white twine.
It helped to keep the lid shut and all the goodies inside.
|Off to deliver the packages... all stacked in my Swagger Wagon!|
On a side-note:
I SURPRISED Mr. Giles and show up to his work in THIS!
|Mr. Giles received a box too! |
NO... not every box had LOVER BOY on it.
|Here is the box with food in it!|
|No matter how big or how small we celebrate,|
We love spending it together.
Here's to 40 future Valentine's Days!!!!
Cheers, until we meet again,
