Hostess Thank You set

I recently attended a party and wanted a hostess thank you gift to take with me. I know that this couple loves to entertain so here is what I came up with - a drink mix and two bottles of seasonings to make dips. Now for all the deets...

I started with a bucket of Chocolatini Mix from Tastefully Simple. I covered the bucket with some SU! Chocolate DP, added a scalloped edge, some ribbon, a flower with button center and a tag. I also decorated the TOP of the bucket with some more DP and a focal image from Vintage Picnic. I then made and decorated (to match) the Pack a Picnic template to hold two bottles of Tastefully Simple dip mixes. I made a card to match and had a wonderful gift set to take to the party.

You can see the tops of the boxes here -->

Here are the sequential project pics.... the bucket ---the bucket covered --- and the contents of Pack-A-Picnic gift box.



And finally, the matching card.


I only wish I had some chocolate pearls instead of white for the card. The gift was a HUGE SUCCESS - everyone loved it. I believe it was because of the way it was all packaged up - not just in a gift bag. THANKS Lauren for the fabulous templates!!!

What an awesome hostess gift. The brown and yellow is so pretty. And as Lauren said, you can get a perfect match using your Copics on the pearls. The white ones look pretty though.
