A charming lunch on the go!

At an open house for the bride and groom a couple of days before the wedding, a friend and I realized we better come up with something for lunch the next day as our schedule was packed absolutely back to back! We wouldn't have time to even stop and get something!

When I got home, my Mom came to the rescue with these cute lunch bags! A Coke bottle from her garage and a quick trip to the grocery store florist pulled this all together!

My Mom packed sandwiches, apples and a mini candy bar - and we added a can of Pringles to the basket. She also found some bridal shower napkins that were perfect since we were eating lunch after just leaving a shower tea for the bride.

I loved how this looked all packed together in a basket and made a cute presentation for an on the go lunch which was just what we all needed!

Monica,

That certainly is charming! I love the yellow Ranunculus - so beautiful! Your Mom sure is a sweetheart packing your lunch. She (and you!) sure know how to make things extra special :)

Have a blessed day in the Lord :)

What a neat idea. It is so much fun to make everyday things more special with pretty little details. I am happy for you that you still have your Mom. Enjoy
