Wild Things Work Late

As if it it wasn't enough to do 95 lunch boxes in the morning Bunny, Munsing & I decided to do 16 themed birthday boxes the same evening for a Wild Things birthday party the next afternoon. Are we insane? Maybe...

An image from the book was chosen and discussed. A trip to the grocery store was made. At six that evening we sat down with some wine and dinner and finalized the elements of the box. It took about a half an hour to get the first monster just right, but then it was a breeze to put the remaining 15 together. The final boxes turned out great and were a HUGE hit at the party!

party box: cheese quesadilla monster with sea vegetable "hair" , slivered almond horns & claws, and fruit leather stripes, cheese crown, carrot & red pepper trees, asian pear moon, and edamame. (warning: monster claws hidden under trees)
