You know how sometimes you just want to put together a sweet little gift thats perfect for a friend, aunt, or party hostess? Quick and easy but pretty, festive, and also useful? Yeah, this is that.
The base for this little package are silver brioche molds I snagged at world market (just $2 a piece!). I was wandering the aisles and couldn’t resist their little fluted edges and satin sheen. Pretttty. So I snagged the 4 for $8 bucks. steal. Since we have a glut of homemade preserves this year (see blueberry madness ’12), I chose to wrap mine up with some blueberry lavender jam as a combo to be served with cheese or on a breakfast buffet. You could also wrap it with fancy mustard, salsa, or a concoction of your own choosing. Really anything that later can be served in a pretty little dish.
I punched out a 2″ circle from an oversized index card and wrote a little handwritten label, stuck to the top with double sided tape. Easy peasy.
Create a little swirl of tinsel, nestle your edibles right into, and if you’re feeling really fancy tuck in a teeny serving spoon. I got these white ceramic ones from CB2. Wrap it up with a bright ribbon and off you go!
PS – I also like this patterned ramekin DIY if you want something a little jazzier.
