So now that you have your Mishloach Manos and Costumes all taken care of (gulp) we can turn our attention towards the seudah.
Purim gives us a unique opportunity to unleash our creativity with a bit of a funky twist. Most of our holiday meals are formal kind of affairs. Purim is just begging for us to have fun and introduce that element of surprise into our table setup.
I know I usually write about craft ideas or party decor - but now that Purim is getting closer and I have my mishloach manos ready to roll, I wanted to write about costumes.
We are what we wear. Dressing in a certain style or mode puts us in that frame of mind.

This week I'm focusing on Mishloach Manos "tags". You can keep your packaging simple and neat, just adding a wow tag takes it up ten notches.
If it somehow co-ordinates with your costumes then it's your lucky day!
If you're looking for a special something to gift to an important person in your life, here are some personal favorites. I have given/received and tasted all of the above items, and have been impressed with the presentation and quality of the foods.
Pick your colors-pick your flavors and have fun with this cheerful Mishloach Manot idea.
This bark is certainly worth the bite! The bark itself is mouthwatering, but take it to the next level by choosing one of the fabulous toppings to fit your color scheme and taste buds!
Here is a cookie cutter idea for those looking for a "non- cookie cutter" idea. For this adorable look, frame your choice of goodies using a standard cookie cutter shape or choose one of the many shapes available to fit your theme. Either way you'll look like "one smart cookie".
Over the years we've had a lot of fun together creating all kinds of Mishloach Manos. We've had the elaborate years, when Purim was a focus and we spent time and money and effort making sure everything was just perfect.
Then we had those other kind of years, when so much was going on that all of a sudden it was Purim and we had to come up with something presentable - and fast!
Over the next few weeks leading up to Purim, I'm going to give you some quick links to Purim ideas. Some concepts I've shared with you in the past, and some are new ones that might be just what you are looking for - to add some pizzazz to your Mishloach Manos or Purim Tablescape.
