Less Dishes to Do

I have great neighbors and wanted to do a little something to say Merry Christmas. I also like fun useful treats, so I came up with a quick, easy, and useful gift that is also very inexpensive
The first picture is the finished treat, scroll down to see the rest.
Stack paper plates, then napkins, and cups on top of the napkins. I added wooden forks and spoons (found on Etsy). Next I did the dreaded wrap with cellophane. I really do not like cellophane but I thought the presentation would look better this way rather than in a gift bag or basket. I tied the top with fun polka dot ribbon and added a candy cane.
I had bought these invitations after Christmas last year and pulled them out and printed:
Wishing you holiday cheer,
With less dishes to do this year. 
I cut out the plate/cutlery from the invitation and attached to the ribbon.

A few of the finished treats for the neighbors.
