Thanksgiving Bento & Holiday Bento Givaway!

Someone told me the official countdown to Christmas the other day and I almost fell over!  I always feel as though I exist within a pressure cooker from now until the end of the year.  Yet, somehow through the hectic bustle, my husband and I manage to get it all done.  As Turkey Day approaches I thought it would be fun to take another stab at Thanksgiving Bento.  Here's what I came up with this morning...


  • PB&J sandwich cut out with a LunchPunch cutter. www.lunchpunch.com
  • Royal icing Pilgrims & Indians from FancyFlours.   www.fancyflours.com
  • American cheese turkey footprints made with bird footprint cutter.
  • Corn on the Cob slices decorated with provolone cheese circles and faces made from nori punch.
  • Pillsbury Turkey cookies.  (ready to bake in the refrig dough section at grocery store).  In silicon baking cup.
  • Grapes with veggie food picks. In silicon baking cup.
I think it's time for another giveaway!!!  I found these adorable holiday Bento boxes at Borders and I picked up an extra set for my sweet friends on the blog! 

All you need to do to be entered into the drawing for these four adorable nesting boxes is to be a follower of my blog and leave a comment on this post.  I will announce the winner Sunday morning 11/21/2010. 
Good Luck!
