Birthday Treats

Yesterday we went to dinner to celebrate John and Matt's birthdays.  I wanted to use the clear tiny treat boxes (pg. 176) in the Annual Catalog to fill with a little treat.  While I was in Walmart the other day, I saw these Hershey Kisses and I was sure
they would be perfect in the boxes.  Couldn't be much easier to make:  put some kisses and raffia in the box; wrap the box with a 1-1/2" wide strip of paper and wrap ribbon over the paper.  That was for John's birthday.  For Matthew's birthday I made a favor equally simple:  little bags from Amuse Studio with Sixlets little sleeves; orange DSP wrapped around each bag; and all wrapped up with white ribbon and a "cheers" tag.  We went to Chandlers Steakhouse in Schaumburg and had a good food and great evening.  We always have a good time when we are together.  Last night we had the pleasure of having our son's girlfriend and her nine year-old son with us, too. That made the evening even more enjoyable.  Kira and Vinny fit right in with our family.  Have a great day!
