I am excited to share my first free printables of the holiday season. This year, I decided to design my own. I am starting with a printable project for foodies.
From cookie exchange parties to the office pot luck, the holiday season provides many occasions to share and exchange recipes. This is why it is a good idea to keep a fresh supply of ready-to-fill recipe cards. You will never be short on supply if you print your own. My holiday recipe cards are available in three patterns. Later this week, I will share the matching holiday gift tag printables.
I already found use for my batch. Last Saturday night, I attended a dinner at a friend’s home. She made a delicious squash and pear soup that she served in shooters with bacon chips. This was a hit! Several people asked her the soup recipe. She also made a delicious gremolata that she served with the capons. The next day, I wrote down her recipes into my recipe cards.
Instead of simply printing your menu for your holiday party, why not share all your recipes? The recipe cards can become a part of your tabletop. Tie them with a ribbon or a twine topped with a holiday ornament and display a pack on each guest plate. Your gourmet friends will appreciate this extra step.
If the recipe cards are for a gift, I recommend a cardboard paper because they look the best. You want a paper on which it will be easy to write. For that reason, it is better to select a matte paper.
On the other end, laminated recipe cards are easy to wipe off. Since I prefer to protect my own recipe cards with self-laminating sheets, I print the recipe cards that are for my own use on standard printing paper with a higher brillance level.
Feel free to print my holiday recipe cards. If you like them, share my link with your friends and family. The size of my recipe cards is 3×5 inches.

People love it when you share your recipes. Whether it is for you or to give a friend, it is more personal when you hand write it on recipe cards. I often use the 3.5″ x 5″ or the 4″ x 6″ lined cards from the office supply store but when you want to make it special, I go for nicely designed recipe cards.
I selected six sets that you would be perfect to bring as hostess gift to the cook of the house. Try to find one that matches the personality of the recipient.
+ I bought the PS Kitchen Gadgets Recipe Cards. $6.95 at Paper Source
+ I like the well-organized layout of the Sweet Southern Recipe Card Set. $15 for 10 cards at Dapper Paper on Etsy
+ Fine Stationery proposes two unique recipe cards. The Personalized Grill Master Recipe Card would be a great gift for the grill man of the house. Couple who like to cook together will appreciate the gesture to give them the Personalized Man & Woman Recipe Card. Both models are at $33 for 25 cards and you can select the faces.
+ You will have plenty of space to write every details of the recipes on the (letter size) Jumbo Personalized Recipe Cards. $15 for the PDF or $30 for 25 printed cards by VO Handmade
+ If you are looking for a modern twist, have a look at the Recycled Personalized Recipe Cards in Diner-Inspired Hues. $12.50 for 20 cards at Two Poodle Press on Etsy
If you give home baked goods this Holiday or if you host a Thanksgiving dinner party, why not share your recipes with your friends and family? To help you write your recipes down, you can print these etsy-orange recipe cards designed by Julie Green of Up Up Creative. Keep the comment empty for your friends to fill out once they tried out your recipe.

Handmade party favors trigger a second to none charmed factor. When we are stress on time, the two women of Pear and Peony come to the rescue.
For a dinner party, I am fond of their Wildflower Seeds party favors or their yellow and black Recipe Cards. Their labels are printed with vegetable inks. The packages are made of recycled paper.
What is fun about the wildflower seeds is that they are available in four varieties, each native to a different area of the USA. You can personalize your favor to your guest’s home state or to location of the event. On the back, there is some space for hand write a thank you note.
Recipe cards are a nice gesture. You can share your favorite recipes, the recipes of the menu of the party or leave them blank for your guests to write their own.
Making simple green choices
Instead of buying brand new shipping boxes, their orders are shipped in reused boxes. It is a wise choice economically and ecologically. I reuse shipping boxes since 2002 for my business needs. I encourage you to do that if you have gifts to ship this Christmas.
It is fashionable these days to try to minimize our impact on the environment. You can read on their Web site that Pear and Peony offsets in parts the shipping of their materials and their products by purchasing renewable energy certificates.
As an individual, you can buy high-quality carbon offsets through a non-profit organization like Planetair in Canada.
Buy online: Wildflower Seeds at Pear and Peony – price: $10 USD for a set of 5
Buy online: Black & Yellow Flourish Recipe Cards at Pear and Peony – price: $12.50 USD for 5 sets of 5 recipe cards

I like collecting recipe cards. This is one of the things that you never seem to have enough. I try to find original illustrated models.
I found these on etsy. Stovetopics is the recipe card brand of pinkbathtub. You will get a baker’s dozen, 13 beautiful cards for $11 USD. What is interesting is that each card has its own drawing and short phrase.
You can find other illustrated themes like pasta, blueberry and wine & dine at her etsy shop. These collections start at $4.50 USD for a set of 5.
Like I said, we always need more recipe cards. I still preferred to write down on paper my recipes because I find it is more convenient when I am cooking.
Whether it is for you or to include in a hostess gift, take a look at these recipe cards.
