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!
