THE MUSE OF MARTHA STRIKES!
Although there is no budget to purchase gifts for everyone attending the 2003 Holiday Party, I don't want anyone to sit there empty-handed while the residents exchange Secret Santa gifts. Thus, the following brainstorm:
Each of these little bundles contains two tealight candles. They are wrapped bon-bon style in tissue paper, and tied with colored raffia. A bundle of kitchen matches is the garnish on the wrapping. I made about fifty of these incendiary party favors for about $12.50. I hope people will light them at the party for dinner-table ambience.
Good thing we're not expecting all those kids, eh?
