It all started last weekend when I was at the cutest kitchen shop in Savannah, GA- Kitchens on the Square.
I spotted a Louisiana shaped cookie cutter and needed it in my life even though I had no idea that I would actually make Louisiana shaped cookies. I mean I like my state and all, but come on.
If you follow me on Instagram, you already saw this photo.
So I had the cute little cutter without any real purpose until……
I learned the new family who moved in two houses down, did so from Texas.
I remember how I felt when entering a new neighborhood, and how much it meant to have fresh bread brought over so I wanted to do something similar for these folks.
So I thought, I’ll make them some Louisiana cookies with my Louisiana cookie cutter !
I added some Tabasco sauce to give the gift some spice.
Did you know that the McIlhenny Co, makers of the renowned Tabasco sauce is located on Avery Island, right here in Louisiana?
I’m an affiliate for them, and will be sharing a tour of how the secret sauce is made in a few weeks.
The tutorial for the lacy burlap runner can be found here: Lacy Burlap Runner How To.
They got one of those too.
I posted a picture of the cookie yesterday, and within 10 minutes I received the most fabulous file in my inbox from Magnolia Creative Co.
It is EXACTLY what my gift needed to tie it all together.
Add some cellophane and raffia, tie it all together and voila!
A sweet little Welcome to Louisiana gift for the new neighbor’s door step.
Do you gift your new neighbors? If so, what do you give?
