sweet treats...

Friday, June 4





+ small lemon...
+ 2 1/2 TBSP. of powdered lemonade in an ADORABLE package
+ CUTE basket wrapped in a lovely piece of fabric
= cute...fun...unique...thoughtful...and economical gift for ema's teacher.

you could even add a straw and a spoon if you wanted...

i've been itching to share this adorable idea ever since i thought of it.
(lucky for me the lemonade & sunshine party inspiration has leaked into other practical areas of my life - LOVE it when that happens)...

here's a close-up of the packaging...

for those of you who have multiple teachers and administrators to put gifts together for...
i've got yet ANOTHER even MORE simple idea...

eliminate the basket and you have this....

just put the powdered lemonade in the bottom...
add the lemon on top...
screw on the lid...
attach the cute little tag and you're done!
or AGAIN...you could attach a straw and a spoon if you wanted?

UPDATE: after having the "lemon-in-jar" on the counter for a few days, the powdered lemonade is starting to "crystalize...must be from moisture in the lemon? I'm not sure if leaving the lid off would help alleviate that problem but I would definitely wait to package up the gift until the day of the event/gift giving and encourage the person to enjoy their gift right-away. You could always just slip the packaged envelope of lemonade into the mason jar instead of letting the powder sit at the bottom. Probably a better idea all the way around...*wink*

it can't GET more simple...
or CAN it?
how about you eliminate everything except the cute packaged powdered lemonade. (great idea for BULK gifts).

hope you LOVE the idea as much as i do.
if you don't...
well...
you should probably just skip over the next part because you'll be bored...

how about a FREE download of the lemonade packet?
just print & cut....EASY!

click HERE to download


that's my "sweet treat" for all of my blog readers...
i wanted to be sure to post this before the weekend...
just incase you wanted/needed to gather supplies to take on this creative little project. *wink*

and remember...
even if school is already out in your part of the world...
wouldn't ANY of these ideas make GREAT party favors?

enjoy!

KEEPING IT REAL
If you're going with the lemon-in-the-jar idea...take the jar you are going to use WITH you when picking out the lemons. My first lemons were too big. *wink*

Absolutely A-dorable J!
This theme has *so* many purposes.

Thank you for sharing. I think I just found the boys' teacher's gifts. They will LOVE this and I think I can actually do this one?

Oh, where can I find mason jars - (your probably laughing) but I'm serious.

Angela...mason jars...I picked mine up at the grocery store. (Publix here in Florida)...I know you can find them at WalMart and probably Target too.

And I figured out it takes about 2 and 1/2 TBSP of the powder to make a 16oz. glass of lemonade - if that helps!?

This is one of the most creative things I have seen in a long time. You absolutely rock. LOVE IT. As a former teacher, if one of my students walked in with this, I would have been blown away! Great idea!

Great idea and lovely presentation. Thanks for sharing it. What is in the mason jar? It looks like there are herbs or something in it.

jess @ pen n' paperflowers said...

Laura...there's actually nothing in the mason jar but you could totally add a sprig of fresh lavender, some pretty flowers or slide a spoon and straw inside of it.

Thanks everyone for your sweet feedback...
"Save Me A Seat" - with you being a former teacher, I'm SO glad to know you would've liked receiving this.

Also...I'm getting ready to update the actual post...regarding the lemon-in-a-jar option...so if you are thinking about doing that, be sure to read the update!!

LOVE this! :) Thanks for the download! :) I'm actually planning a lemon party for my mom's 50th birthday this month! :) Her favorite color has always been yellow so we're planning on decorating with lemons. :)
