Purim Food Gifts

In keeping with my black and white theme this year, my Shalach Manos baskets are black and white as well! 

These gifts of food or drink are sent to friends, relatives, neighbors, teachers, business associates, and any other acquaintances on Purim day. The mitzvah of giving Shalach Manos derives from the Book of Esther. It is meant to ensure that everyone has enough food for the Purim feast held later in the day, and to increase love and friendship among Jews.

It was fun hunting and gathering foods that are black and white.

For the containers, I found these plastic jars on sale at Target. They were filled with chocolate covered pretzels which I couldn't use but I knew that the size and shape of the jars were perfect. The labels were created with black and white patterned paper with the message was printed out from my computer. The lids were spray painted black and I added white sticker dots. A lime green ribbon is my accent color. I always make Moussia and Yosef their very own little basket and these cute polka dot pails are also from Target.

Ready to deliver on Purim day!
