I decided to use the weather as my theme, thinking there will be tons of snow so why not work with it. We are very limited as to what we can do in the community room at the apartments where the party is to be held so I decided that everything would be done in white. I'll post some pictures of the tables sometime next week but today I'm showing you the take away gift for those who attend the party. Its just a little something suited for the weather today.
I found this idea on where else... Pinterest and knew it was just what I had been looking for. Hot Chocolate on a stick I had already put the little gift boxes together and knew that eventually I'd find just the right little something to put inside.
I purchased little white boxes at the Dollar store in the wedding stuff. I think they were a dollar a dozen, can't beat that price. Since I was using snow and white as my theme I cut out several different styles of snowflakes on my Cricut to decorate the front of the gift boxes.
On the back I again used the Cricut to cut out the words THANK YOU.
Next came the Hot Chocolate on a stick. The directions to make these cute little gems is on the link above so I won't repeat it but here is what they looked like before going into the little gift box.
Since half of those in attendance today will be in their 80's and 90's I had to print the directions in a larger font that I would have liked so when I attached them to the stick they kind of overwhelmed them. When I put them in the actual box I put the directions facing the back so at least from the front you don't see much of this.
There will be one of these little boxes at each of the place settings today for everyone to take with them. Its snowing outside and this I think will be the perfect gift for everyone to enjoy in remembrance of mom's big day.
Happy 90th. birthday Mom!
