First, the good …the box itself is going to be used to pack some beautiful items for the bar as a gift for Christmas, its gorgeous as well as the stuffing.
The tea towel, nice, simple. It will be used for sure, I can always use a new towel for my kitchen! Nice touch.
The pillow cover is adorable and will be a hostess gift to a party I am going to this weekend in a gift bag with a nice candle.
The Laundress soap although VERY nice and I love it, makes no sense to this “brunch” box.
Now the confusing part….ONE place card holder? These are very inexpensive and I get them at Office Depot, or other office outlets. Why only one and not at least 4 if not 5 for brunch?….at least to match the paper thingys?
The paper folder thingys I am going to use for a” Harry Potter trip Agenda ” that I am hosting my immediate family to here in Florida, seems the only thing that makes sense and is kind of cool for these folders, I can include the tickets to get in the park, our plans for the two days there, and the gift cards I got them to buy a wand or something. Am I crazy or is 5 a weird number for these too?
Unfortunately, the cup came in fine condition but was not at all wrapped in side the box, I could hear clinking around even before I opened it and indeed the unwrapped ceramic spoon was broken in two pieces. One was in the cup itself and the other inside the box rolling around.
So….I think value wise, its right on the mark or better, but curation wise….its awkward, not bad, just weird. And really, the video keeps me wishing for the basket the girls got! LOL
Trying out another month before I give up though. The other boxes she has done were knock outs and that is why I tried this one.
