Farmers’ Market Party Favor Ideas from Sunday Suppers

brown paper bag menu and packaging for take home fresh peaches :: sunday suppers market class

I featured Sunday Suppers on several quick link posts. From what I have seen this week, I am not going to stop soon. The concept behind their Market class can be resumed in building a seasonal menu based on what is available at the market.

Casey Solomon and Karen Mordechai propose more than cooking classes. They put attention to details of the tablescape. This is how they first grabbed my attention.

For the market class, they came up with a brilliant yet simple idea. They wrote the menu on brown paper bags. At the end of the night, the guests used their paper bag to bring home fresh peaches.

They filled a wood crate with local peaches and put it next to the door. Small details include placing a piece of jute underneath the crate. You could use potato bags. Tea towels were used as napkins and to make a bed for the peaches. I am sure that many of you will recycle their entertaining ideas.

If you are interested in taking their classes, they are held in Brooklyn, New York.

  1. This morning I’m surfing the net looking for ideas for decorating at my scented candle parties, packaging, foods to serve and such. The farmers market will be a great resource! And best of all, I’ll be supporting the local economy while buying supplies for my shows :)
