Ever since I saw the Rootbeer Sampler idea on Homemade by Jill I’ve been wanting to create one. My husband had a birthday, so I declared it a RootBeer Birthday and surprised him with the Rootbeer Sampler. Then we had Rootbeer Cake (stay tuned for that tomorrow…)
I didn’t find enough bottled rootbeer (I drove a looooong ways to a Whole Foods and they only carried one – argh!) so I stuck in a few plastic bottles and cans, just to fill the box. Also, my kids toured a creamery when they were at Grandma Day Camp and came home talking on and on about rootbeer milk – so I thought I’d have to drive up to the dairy to get it, but then found out that my local grocery store carried it – perfect.
I tracked the wooden crate down at JoAnn’s (Michael’s used to carry them but no longer does). I had the bottles prechilled so he could crack one open right away. A fun gift – something different and enjoyed.
Oh, and don’t forget about the Poppy Seed Fabric Giveaway – it ends today!
