Start a Healthy Winter Tradition – Host your 1st Annual Soup Swap Party!

Soup Swap Party

Another who woulda thunk it moment! January 18th (the 3rd Saturday of January) is this year's National Annual Soup Swap Day. We originally read about this creative party idea in Sara McColl's Yahoo article entitled “The Only Party Invitation We Want This Time of Year” . I guess it should not surprise anyone that we were intrigued. A winter party theme that is easy to organize, allows you to keep your weight loss / get healthy resolutions, has very little cost associated with it. And best of all you get to go home with one of the best party favors ever –  6 quarts of delicious soups, enough for dinner for a week.

And even if you missed the official soup swap day, no worries. As far as we are concerned any day can be soup swap day.

Soup Swap Party Supplies

What else you and your 5 guests will need:

  • Six (6) Quarts of delicious homemade freezable soup
  • Ball Wide Mouth Quart Jars with Lids and Bands
  • Each invitee should pour the soup into the individual mason jars.
  • Jars should be labeled with the chef's name, the name of the soup and the date prepared (you can even include the mason jar labels with your invitations)

The host should prepare an extra pot of soup to be served with a loaf of warm bread and a bottle or two of fabulous discount wine from The Wine Spies. Or need it quickly, check out Saucey. Continue Reading →

Burlap Silverware Holders

Burlap Silverware Holders

Our close friends and occasional PIP contributors, Vicki and Paige, landed in Waco, Texas for a fun week in search of all things fabulous. It did not take them long to discover a set of wonderful burlap silverware holders. We hate to admit it but this was our first encounter with utensil holders and we are smitten. So of course, we felt compelled to spend a couple of of hours researching burlap utensil pockets and then decided to share a few of our favorites with you. We envision  using cutlery pockets for weddings, bridal & baby showers, and birthday & dinner parties . We also think burlap cutlery holders could really add that sometime elusive but all so important little splash of wow to your Thanksgiving tables! Continue Reading →
