Packing Up Leftovers for Your Thanksgiving Guests


This is such a fantastic idea, don’t you think?  What a stylish and simple way to send off your guests!  And the best part is that you won’t have to worry about whether or not you’ll see your dishes again!  Here are some fun products to help you recreate this look.  The only thing I’d like to add is a grosgrain ribbon bow–consider using a different ribbon for each guest so they know whose leftovers are whose.

Affordable sources for all these goodies after the jump…
