“I was invited to a graduation party!” the girl announced.
“Great,” I replied. “Is she going away to college?”
“Yes”, she answered, “she will be living in a dorm.”
Whether venturing off to college, moving into a first apartment, or purchasing your first home, you’re about to find yourself testing the kitchen skills your mother attempted to instill in you. You’re going to need supplies!
Off to the store!! The girl enjoyed gathering the items and became even more excited when I suggested we could fill a bowl. “Like a gift basket?” she smiled. There were some kitchen basics featuring bright colors. The girl challenged herself to select complementary elements. The resulting kitchen gift bowl presents some basic utensils, coordinating linens, dish soap, and the all important pizza wheel.
The Shopping List:
- Dish Towel
- Dish Cloth
- Hot Pads
- Hot Mitt
- Dish Soap
- Measuring Spoons
- Measuring Cups
- Chip Clips
- Salad Tongs
- Pizza Wheel
- Spaghetti Server
- Silicone Scraper
The girl assembled her chosen items into the bowl and created a beautifully coordinated gift. We’re ready for the party!!
