No-Calorie Bon Bons

This past weekend, we celebrated my mother's 60th birthday. My Mom, Gwen, is a talented seamstress and costume designer who has worked with area theatres, film production companies and for individual clients. She can (and has) made everything:  pageant gowns, elf costumes, Elvis costumes, clogging costumes, ice-skating outfits, wedding dresses - you name it! Our theme for her birthday party was: "Say It Isn't Sew…Gwen’s Turning 6-0!"  We decorated with more than 150 tape measures, 3500 buttons, 50 skeins of yarn, fabric and other sewing accessories. 

I'll post photos of the party soon, but while I recover from the weekend's festivities, I wanted to share another bon bon idea that is "sew" cute... introducing calorie-free crocheted bon bons. You can find these cute crocheted confections on one of my all-time favorite websites: http://www.etsy.com.  A shopping site that operates much like eBay, etsy specializes in "handmade goods, vintage items & crafting supplies". This site is one my regular go-to sources for unique, thoughtful gifts. I love the idea of wrapping a tin of real South 'n France Bon Bons in a box and then tying the box with a pink tulle bow. One of these keepsake crocheted bon bons nestled in the bow would be the perfect crowning touch for the ultimate birthday (or anytime!) gift.
