This is the way you give a loaf of bread!!




When I give a food gift, I want it to not only taste wonderful but I want it to look amazing. You taste with your eyes first. I was going to lunch at a sandwich shop--they sell amazing breads and treats.
 I was taking dinner to anew mother and had made Veggie Lasagna. A loaf of their Asiago Cheese Bread would certainly compliment the meal. I purchased the bread and while we were eating and chatting I happened to have a perfect view of an employee making beautiful gift baskets and gift items. I took the my purchased loaf of bread and this is what she did! The bread is wrapped in a fun kitchen towel, looks like a bandana--perfect for a little boy. The ribbon is bright blue, white on sheer polka dots and a splash of lime green. I love it! Pretty classy, and I think I could recreate too.

Cindy, what a beautifully wrapped loaf of bread - we often use pretty kitchen towels as gift wrap but I have never used a bandana as wrap. I bought a whole pile last week and was planning a sewing project with them but maybe they should be used as gift wraps instead!
Nice post - by the way, I am making your Brownie Pie today, I am sure that the kids will love it!
Have a great Sunday!

Gosh, I would love to get a loaf wrapped up like that. I'm filing your idea away for when I need to give bread as a gift!

Wow! You're right! That look wonderful. SO much fancier than just a loaf of bread. Although Asiago Cheese bread? My fav!!!
