its a beautiful day in the neighborhood

When you were young, did you watch Mr. Rodgers? I did, so I can just hear these lyrics over and over in my head...it’s a beautiful day in a neighborhood, a beautiful day for a neighbor.

My friend and her family just moved into the neighborhood…I’m thrilled and so our my kids. As we all know, moving is so stressful and the last thing we want to do is cook a meal while surrounded by boxes and overwhelmed with exhaustion. With the help of Jenna at Fleur de Lis, my homemade spaghetti sauce and peanut butter and chocolate chip cookies, and a trip to the grocery store, I made a lovely basket to take to my neighbor to welcome her to the neighborhood.

If you have a new neighbor, take the time to welcome them with Fleur de Lis welcome to the neighborhood labels. Yay for you because Jenna is offering them for FREE. Download here.  It doesn’t even have to be gourmet – just a simple meal accompanied with cute printables. A lovely “Martha” touch. :)

For my basket, I included:
homemade pasta sauce in large Mason jar
noodles
parmesan cheese
salad {along with an avocado, carrots, etc for salad}
salad dressing
cookies

Be sure to follow Jenna on Facebook to get dibs on more free printables in the future and follow our inspiration boards on Pinterest too.
