I can't tell you how or when I came across Melanie's fantastic blog You Are My Fave but what I do know is the first time I saw it I was hooked. I don't know if it's the sweet bunting, the wonderful party ideas or the posts which are always written with a touch of humor (it's all three!) but I am a loyal follower! You can imagine how thrilled to pieces I am that Melanie agreed to do a guest post for my blog! Seriously jumping for joy! Thank you Melanie!
I'm a believer in the power of re-packaging. While a good quality chocolate bar is always appreciated, it makes an even bigger impact with a quick wrap in a vintage hanky and banded with printed paper and a simple message. The good thing is, you can find great hankies at the thrift store for less than $1/piece and recycle a letterpress card to make it all your own. A simple, pretty gift for under $4 - depending on how good of chocolate bar you go with. Tip: don't go with Hershey.
