My Sweetie’s birthday is in December…so, it is not easy to be creative for two major events in one month! And, add to that the problem of distance…well…

At the time I did this we were separated by more than sixty miles and we both had jobs, so I could not be with him for the actual day of his birthday. I decided to call a catering shop in his neighborhood, and ask them if they would do a coffee break for him. They agreed and we worked out all the details. We chose the foods and drinks and even the container, which was a beautiful holiday style fabric basket, and they did it all up so special for me.

They delivered right to his desk at work, including a fabric placemat and fabric napkin, and special mug for the coffee! He was thrilled with the thought, and, also the food, since this girl was a gourmet caterer! It was the talk of the office for days.
