May Foodie Pen Pal Box Reveal!

I participated in  my first Foodie Pen Pal in May, it was SO much fun! I had a ton of fun putting my box together to send to Hannah in Troy, NY and then I was SO excited to get my package from Sara! 

She sent me a FABULOUS box of stuff and I just LOVED everything! 
Such adorable packaging!
She sent me a package full of things for entertaining, which is going to be PERFECT for summer entertaining!
I have been wanting pretty decorative ice cube trays, and I just LOVE these! I cannot wait to use them! I think it would be fun to even put raspberries in them!
How FUN are these dips? The bruschetta I really wanted to use and break out last night, but ultimately decided to wait for something special. The honey is awesome, I use honey in so many different things! On a good piece of cheddar with crackers, with salmon or even in a mojito! I cannot wait to try this one made from blueberries!
What an awesome package, I just LOVED everything she put into it! The dishtowels are wonderful, I use them as napkins so much during the summer! Sara, thank you SO much for such a wonderful thoughtful and well thought out package, what a wonderful Foodie Pen Pal!

Check out Sara's Blog The Imperfect Kitchen, she has some great recipes!

If you are interested in becoming a Foodie Pen Pal, here is the information!
-On the 5th of every month, you will receive your penpal pairing via email. It will be your responsibility to contact your penpal and get their mailing address and any other information you might need like allergies or dietary restrictions.
-You will have until the 15th of the month to put your box of goodies in the mail. On the last day of the month, you will post about the goodies you received from your penpal! 
-The boxes are to be filled with fun foodie things, local food items or even homemade treats! The spending limit is $15. The box must also include something written. This can be anything from a note explaining what’s in the box, to a fun recipe…use your imagination!
-You are responsible for figuring out the best way to ship your items depending on their size and how fragile they are. (Don’t forget about flat rate boxes!)
-Foodie Penpals is open to blog readers as well as bloggers. If you’re a reader and you get paired with a blogger, you are to write a short guest post for your penpal to post on their blog about what you received. If two readers are paired together, neither needs to worry about writing a post for that month. 
-Foodie Penplas is open to US & Canadian residents.  Please note, Canadian Residents will be paired with other Canadians only. We've determined things might get too slow and backed up if we're trying to send foods through customs across the border from US to Canada and vice versa. 
If you’re interested in participating for June, please CLICK HERE to fill out the participation form and read the terms and conditions. 
You must submit your information by June 4th as pairings will be emailed on June 5th!

*If you're from somewhere besides the US, Canada or Europe and want to participate, send me an email and I'll see if we get enough interest this month!
