Client Christmas Gifts

Good morning,

It's that time of the year again when I put the finishing touches on the client gifts that our daughter gives to the business clients of her CPA practice.  Catherine does a wonderful job of creating a lovely gift that she has designed herself.
Catherine purchased and assembled the gifts;  my job was to close them up and put a pretty bow on each one.
This year's theme is tea and cookies. 
 Everything is arranged on a very pretty glass serving plate. It's made in the USA, too. 
 
 These pretty gifts seem to go on and on!  They covered the dining room table and every other flat surface in the dining room and living room.
 I went through rolls of ribbon and a good part of the day to make the bows...
 ...but it was worth it!  Catherine's gifts look beautiful this year.  Her thoughtful, personal selections make them so very special.

All the best,
Lois

Well, how pretty is THAT!! Love the blue bows! Very nice of her. I have a CPA friend and she does the same thing. She doesn't do our taxes, but we get one anyway because we've been friends for 27 years! I'm sure your daughter's clients will be in 7th Heaven! Actually they are too pretty to open!! ...debbie

Beautifully put together and a nice selection. Lovely gift to receive! I do cookie trays and nut tins to give to friends and package them in a similar fashion.
