Housewarming Gift

"Come over to our place on Saturday, we're having a Housewarming Party!"
That was where it all began. Where I had to start thinking of what to get someone that may or may not have everything they need or not. And what do you get someone anyways? When we got married we got 4 toasters, 3 sandwich makers, frying pans up the wazoo and so many plate sets that I could cry. We didn't even register for those things! I didn't want to put them in THAT predicament

So after some time I took to MY kitchen to see what I could find that I never received, and I found it - a pitcher! Now to make it cute...
I tossed some lemons inside (they smelled SO GOOD) and took a recipe card and put down my recipe for "best lemonade", then flipped it and taped our note to the front of it. I LOVE the idea of giving a treat and a gift they can use, and this turned out cute too! YAY! 

BTW, Congrats on your new home Chet!


  1. What a great idea for a housewarming gift! New follower via Naptime Review. Check out my blog and follow me back if you like! Thanks!

    Have a great week! :)

  2. Oh My Gosh! that is so stinking cute! I love this idea. I will probABLY be using it in the near future ;)

  3. Wow - what a wonderful idea! As a realtor, I'm going to use this idea as a "pop by" gift to take to my favorite clients this summer. Looks pretty inexpensive if gotten in bulk and I'll be able to take them around to many clients without having to worry about something melting in the car :)
