Guest Post: Quiet Like Horses

I’m so excited to start the week of with a delightful guest post from my sweet bloggin’ buddy, Sobrina. She has a lovely blog, Quiet Like Horses. We first connected through blog post comments and I’ve been a fan of hers ever since. She’s super talented and adorable too, I mean who throws cute blog re-launch party like this? Take it away Sobrina!

Spring is one of my favorite seasons. For one thing, the colors this time of year are so fresh and lively. If I could choose one cookie to represent all that I love about spring, it would be a macaron. It’s wonderfully delicate and comes in a myriad of Easter-basket-worthy colors, from pistachio greens to petal pinks to lovely lavenders. I wanted to surprise friends with something sweet to celebrate the season and decided these would be perfect.

The key was to find really great macarons which can be easier said than done. Luckily for me, Nicole Lee Fine Chocolates makes some of the best macarons I’ve ever had, and they offer free local delivery if you live in San Jose.

I created these simple cards, printed them out on cardstock, and cut them out with craft scissors.

I filled treat boxes with matching crinkle cut paper shred to make sure the entire package would brighten even the roughest Monday morning.

Tied up with a purple ribbon, the packages were really pretty and even my macaron-skeptic cousin loved them.

Thank you, Krista, for having me on your lovely blog! Happy spring everyone!
