there's nothing quite like getting a little housewarming basket full of homemade goodness from your neighbors.
that is, unless your neighbors happen to be a bit on the crunchy side. bless 'em.
you see, i've been craving banana bread lately. actually, i've been craving all of the bread things lately.
so in an effort to justify my baking cravings & stick to my paleo eating plan, i made two loaves of refined sugar-free, grain-free bread.
yes, we gave our new neighbors hippie bread.
(i used this recipe from against all grain if you're into that sort of thing)
just in case the hippie bread wasn't their thing, i made it better with a cute basket. i pulled out some of my favorite recipe cards by lesley of recipe for crazy & jotted down the recipe for them, too.
i wrapped the bread in parchment paper & tied it with string. i even got out my little stamps & made them a sweet welcome tag with washi tape & fabric details.
i snatched up these little word cards at the antique mall recently. this "home" card is just perfect for a housewarming gift. you could even make your own with plain card stock & letter stamps.
i also added a card with our contact information. i always include our phone numbers so neighbors can easily get in touch.
paired with a candle & a fresh bouquet of flowers from the garden, this basket came together for less than $10!
how do you love on your new neighbors? i'd love to read your ideas!
