New and Improved "Veggie Tray"

Gotta take care of some business first...there are only two more days to enter into the clutch giveaway from MSG FabriCreations! To find out more click here.

Lilly will officially be 11 months tomorrow, which means that her first birthday is quickly approaching! (Too quickly might I add). I'm in the process of planning the menu and wanted to include some veggies somewhere in there. I felt like the tried and true veggie tray has been so overdone so I wanted to class the concept up just a bit.

So, of course this led me to Pinterest, where I found this adorable idea:

Cute Veggie Tray

How fun is that right? It's so cute that I might even be inclined to eat a vegetable or two...

So, with this in mind I went yard sale-ing this past Saturday and spotted these old jars...

They were $.50 each and I thought they definitely had some vegetable potential.

After a good cleaning I removed the orange seal (didn't get rid of it, just removed it for now because it didn't match the color scheme) and added some pink and green washi tape

Don't you think they'll go wonderfully with the 'country' theme once I stick some carrots, tomatoes, and cauliflower in them? And in case you forgot they just so happen to match perfectly with the party invitations I made... (You don't remember? It's ok, You can find those here)

If you're looking for some gingham washi tape, like the kind I used in this post, click on the Amazon link below: There are a number of different styles and colors to choose from.


  1. Yes, that will be cute! I have done a veggie assortment like this and people thought it was so unique and cute!!
