birthday centerpiece idea -- tie balloons on top--fill with any candy. let kids guess on paper how many pieces of candy are in the jar. one who is closest gets the jar at the end. Could work as table numbers/center pieces too!
"wine & cheese party- black paper and write on it with white, silver or gold marker to label everything." It would be so cool to do this with chalkboard paint on the table's surface too!use the whole of the island & kitchen table if large party
