Purim is coming! In two weeks from tomorrow we will be celebrating the Jewish Holiday of Purim which is one of my absolute favorites. On the surface, Purim is a joyous day of parties, costumes and sharing creative food packages with our friends. But there is a much deeper spiritual meaning to the day. It is a day that represents great miracles...just when things seem to have been at their bleakest, Hashem made a huge miracle and the terrible times were reversed to joyous times in the blink of an eye. 

This message of hope and miracles is the reason for all the festivities, and one of the ways that we celebrate is by sharing Shaloch Manos (food packages) with our friends. Well, for those of us that love beautiful party ideas and creative challenges, coming up with a 'theme' or gorgeous package idea can be part of the fun.  

But for those people that are just too busy or need a little help in the area, there's Tassels Home Decor. Esti from Tassel's can create the most beautiful Shaloch Manos packages for you. She has a whole variety of ready made packages, but she can also custom make them to your specification
