In My Mailbox: Gingham, Plates and Pie Servers...
In preparation for the pie picnic, there have been a lot of boxes dropped off at my door. I'm trying to save myself the hassle of running all over New York with my granny cart -- plus its much easier to find 5 great picnic baskets online than in any brick and mortar store I know.
Below, some picnic items that arrived in my mailbox this week:
First, lots of plates! (Also, forks!) One in "Kickstarter green"!
Next -- gingham! And lots of it! I'll be covering the tables at the Kickstarter booth in various colors of gingham, and those who pledged to the PICNIC ON THE GRASS level, will get a little gingham blanket in their picnic basket:
Lastly -- 24 pie servers! After holding a pie event for 4 years, I've realized one can't eat a pie correctly if you don't have a good pie server. Sharing knives just doesn't cut it. I'm kind of in love with these servers, especially the meticulous way they are packaged...
Only 3 more days to go to fund the pie picnic project, and there is still lots of pledges open to submit a pie, or to get a pie slice ticket.
