DOLLAR STORE ENTERTAINING TIP #1

Well, here is my latest tip to share with you all. I love the Dollar store! Dollar General usually has these nice little silver looking trays for guess how much.....a $1. I purchase them in quantity and when I head to an event in which I am asked to bring an appetizer, etc., I put our appetizer/dessert, etc. on one of these numbers and it looks beautiful. My girlfriend actually brought chocolate dipped strawberries on these trays around to her friends for New Year's Eve. After loosing a few priceless heirlooms, this is my new plan and I do not have to bring it home with me nor does the hostess have to deliver my platter, etc.

What a great idea for Christmas gift sharing. I started my shopping up north last weekend. These will be perfect for the cookie trays.

Love the dollar store - particularly Dollar Tree. For my daughter's birthday party one year I got all these little velvet purses and filled them with candy and that was the favor. They all loved them!
