Girlfriend Gifts

My co-leader Pat & I wanted to give something special to the women of our Bible Study Group to celebrate the end of a particularly meaningful study.  Here's what we came up with.  This is easy AND delicious!

Find yourself a few pretty dessert plates.  If you're not trying to match them, your local thrift shop is a good place for these. 

Then find a few candlesticks, small cocktail-type glasses (use your imagination), for the base.  Epoxy the base to the bottom of the plate.  This was Pat's part.

Make a couple dozen Strawberry Cake Ball Truffles, and wrap them up in cellophane & ribbon.  This was my part.

We met at a local restaurant for brunch, where we deocrated the table with them.  Our girlfriends loved them!

Here's the scoop: Total expenditure for 6 gifts - about $30.00!


  1. Hi Chris!!! What a cute idea...really neat idea! I bet you guys had such fun!!! I am gonna keep my eyes open at thrift stores now!!! Might make a few for Christmas gifts this year!!!

  2. Fabulous idea Chris! I've done this with a covered cheese dish to make a small and a stemmed icecream dish and loved the outcome. I'll be on the hunt for a great dish now to make one!! Love what a great gift you girls made... the recipients were certainly blessed!

    Hugs, Sherry

  3. You're the girlfriend to have! Beautiful and so very thoughtful...


I'd love to hear your thoughts...
