Cheap Chic Holiday Gifts >> Cupcakes in a Glass Bell Jar

We recently stumbled upon a DIY gift idea involving baking mini banana breads in  ball mason jars (lightly oil the jars and only fill batter about half way up).  We liked almost everything about the project except the bedraggled cloth tied to the lids – it cheapened the entire look and not surprisingly, we believed we could find a way to make a good idea even better >> hence, Cheap Chic Holiday Gifts – Cupcakes in a Glass Bell Jar !

As usual, however, when we begin obsessing about a project, we never quite know the direction our research will take us.  This time we got sidetracked and quickly became enamored with these featured wonderful Miniature Glass Bell Jars with White Fluted BaseHoliday Cupcake Wrappers, Cheap Chic Holiday Gifts - Cupcakes in a Glass Bell JarHow great would it be to add an adorable holiday cupcake wrapper to create a festive, chic and expensive looking little gift of thanks.  It would be especially cute if you used the Merry & Bright Cupcake KitThe Nutcracker Cupcake Kit, The Twelve Days of Christmas Cupcake Kit, or create more of a non-denominational winter wonderland look using the damask light blue patterned cupcake wrappers (perfect for teacher gifts!)

OMG – now that we are thinking of it these would make fabulous party favors for just about any celebration.  For Thanksgiving make pumpkin cupcakes and decorate them with the Turkey with Hats Cupcake Kit. For baby showers think Peter Rabbit, Animal Parade, and vintage baby cupcake wrappers.  And how perfect are these glass bell jars for a chic Paris Party!

Buy the glass jars in bulk (they are cheaper that way) and store them away for whenever you need a cheap but chic little gift of thanks.

Party Hearty!

OMG – Look what we stumbled  upon – a Jessica Steele apron  with matching recipe book, oven mitts, dish towels and so much more!

We can easily envision this set inspiring an adorable What’s Cooking bridal shower or birthday party. Or  bundle a few cherry goodies together to create the perfect present!

Another option is to work with the Jessie Steele Apron Audrey Cherry Cupcakes pattern.  It too offers coordinating everything and would also make an adorable children’s party theme.
