29 Gifts, Day Thirteen: An Iced Tea Thermos and Two Pinwheels

May 13th, 2011

Tomorrow is the big annual fundraising gala for the nonprofit I work for.  It’s been my job (with help!) to coordinate the event and it’s going to be awesome.  We’re expecting about 300 people who will mix, mingle, and show their support of my organization while munching on culinary delights from a bunch of local restaurants and enjoying the sights of the funky art gallery venue.

We’re doing a big silent auction and I spent some time today, racing around and picking up a few items to put the finishing touches on several baskets.  As a gift to the event, I bought a few “non-essential but nice additions” for a couple baskets.  One basket is a “Porch Picnic” with some candles, blankets, a ‘smores maker, etc.  I added a bright plastic iced tea thermos, a pair of multi-colored pinwheels, and a huge beach tote to pack it all into.  Perfect.
