I really enjoy creating the staff/teacher luncheons at Mark Hopkins Elementary.
Its fun to create a nice relaxing lunch to show teachers
how much we love them and appreciate what they do with our students.
For our fall luncheon, I went with an Italiano lunch theme.
I use BRING IT as an online sign up sheet and parents sign up for what they would like to bring. I really like Bring It because you can add what you want others to bring so you can make sure to get just what you need for your event.
World Market had the yummy Italian Torrone candies for favors.
My friend Melody, let me borrow her gorgeous glass drink container- I really want one of these!
I have borrowed it from her for numerous parties and its so pretty.
It always gets lots of compliments:)
I am going to post a recipe tomorrow for this AMAZING dipping oil with the most yummy combination of spices! It goes wonderfully with Panera's baguettes.
(we are so blessed to have a parent who works for Panera's donation/promotion department- they ALWAYS donate so much to our school and we are very grateful!)
I also need to post the recipe for these mini cheesecakes- they were super easy and very tasty!
Overall, it was a great event and went very smoothly.
