These are the little goodies I came up with for the month of November for the ladies that my friend and I visit each month for church. I found these adorable leaf shaped ramekins at Target (where else?) and then filled them with "blessing mix" and then attached the tag that explains the mix with twine.
Thanksgiving Blessing Mix
BUGLES--Shaped like a cornucopia, a symbol of our nation's abundance.
PRETZELS--Arms folded in prayer, a freedom sought by those who founded our country.
CANDY CORN--The sacrifices of the first winter. Food was so scarce that settlers survived on just a few kernels of corn a day.
NUTS & SEEDS--Promise of a future harvest, one we will reap only if seeds are planted and tended with diligence.
DRIED FRUIT--Harvest gifts from our bountiful land.
M&Ms--Memories of those who came before us to lead us into a blessed future.
CHOCOLATE KISSES--The love of family and friends that sweetens our lives.
