Snacks in a Bottle

I have been thinking about these little treat holders for a while now,
and I'm so excited to set them out on Thanksgiving!
* * * * * * *
I can't remember where I saw this idea, so my apologies if I'm not giving credit where credit is due, but I loved this idea for serving snacks in carafes instead of open bowls. The idea is that guests pour some of the treats into their hand, rather than reaching into the bowl. "A bit more sanitary," I thought, "and besides, it's a cute idea."


I bought these little wine carafes at a restaurant supply store for cheap {Local friends, you have to go there!!! It's on Main just west of Alma School in Mesa...} and I think they'll be great to have around for future events at our house. I want to get a few taller versions for varied height next time.



I printed some Thanksgiving words onto cardstock and used a couple of punches to make the tags, and the ribbon is some that I had in my stash.


And with that, I am officially ready for Thanksgiving company.
Wishing my U.S. friends a very safe and happy holiday,
and my International's a very lovely week!

so cute and I love the idea of people puring rather than putting their fingers into the mix. Your 'gobble' labels made me laugh. Have a fabulous time with your family
