parties + party ideas
For a holiday party this year, I thought it would be fun to host a dinner party where all the food was miniature. My friend Andrea came up with the perfect mini menu. I wanted a fun way to present it so I went to the hardware store and bought some thin planks of wood and some bricks to line up all the pretty dishes down the table. It was so easy and looked so pretty. I always shop at Crate and Barrel for mini dishes (I have for years!). They have the best selection of appetizer plates and holiday entertaining supplies.

Find some fun colorful card-stock and assemble these printable boxes in any color palette you desire. Good things definitely come in small packages!
