I wanted to create a fun, fall centerpiece for the party. I love sunflowers and they are a great transitional flower to decorate with, so I used some of the items I already had on hand to create a pretty floral arrangement.
Wooden tool box (See how I made my own!)
3 Mason jars (without the lids)
Hot glue gun
3 Sunflowers (I am using artificial)
Measure the burlap ribbon around the jar and cut to size. Use the hot glue gun to affix the ends to the jar.
Wrap the twine around the mouth of the jar a few times and tie in a bow. Arrange the jars in the wooden tool box and insert the flowers.
How easy is that??? I arranged leaf garland and a couple of pumpkins (from the Dollar tree) around it for a little extra color.
To prepare for the party, I purchased some small paper cups from Target's dollar spot, to use for the soup. I also found some burlap chalk board tags to use to identify the soup flavors.
I served the following flavors from the Blount Organic line:
Ancient Grains Minestrone
Savory Harvest Bisque
All of the soups are 200 calories or less per serving and have a "cool grip" rim, which is perfect for popping in the microwave at work! The soups are made with the freshest ingredients and offer vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options. They are great by themselves or used as an ingredient in a dish, such as a casserole or pork roast.
The flavors got rave reviews and one of my guests said the Tomato Bisque tasted a lot like the one from a popular restaurant chain! My favorite was the Broccoli Cheddar; it was creamy and tasted homemade, with large pieces of broccoli.
