Today I was going through all my old magazines and came across one of my all time faves that I thought I would share with you. This is from the Feb/March issue of Home Companion. It's an idea I've wanted to do since I very first saw this article 4 years ago. The invitations are machine embroidered dish towels. You all get together with the theme of My Mom Makes the Best.... You bring your favorite recipe of your mothers printed out for everyone along with a picture of her and a sample to share. Then you spend the evening making little scrapbooks of all the recipes and eating. The party favors are the cookbooks, little woven potholders, a personalized napkin with little mini utensil ornaments on it, plus a dishtowel apron. Can you believe it? Even the little place cards are amazing, standing up in vintage cookie cutters. It's funny, but I would love to do this for my 30 th birthday party this year. If only I had a bigger house and an embroidery machine.....It sounds like the most amazing time! It's on the list of things to do before I turn 30, maybe I'll do a post about that sometime.
