The wedding season is coming up and if you are hosting an event for the bride-to-be, here's a fun idea. Host a Stock the Pantry shower and ask your guests to bring things for the pantry and kitchen. Include a blank recipe card with the invitations so that your guests can bring their favorite recipe for the new bride. For my Stock the Pantry shower, I have a party set that includes a banner, a recipe box and invitations.
To make the recipe box, I first covered it with our DIY craft paper. That's such great paper for these kind of projects.
Then I added decorative paper layers and borders from my hoarded French Country stash. (You know that was hard to do 'cause I just don't ever want to see the end of that collection!)
The banner is made with red ATC Alpha tags. I backed the tags with scraps from French Country and added some small cut-aparts, as well as a couple of mason jar die-cuts decorated with my favorite French Country border, the rooster and chickens.
Decorating tips: Use painted mason jars in different sizes filled with wildflowers as a centerpiece. Delight your guests with a really great jam as a party favor; even better gift small jars of homemade jam. Pinterest has so many great ideas for mason jars, be sure to peruse all those ideas.
