Birthday Jam

This summer Sophie celebrated her 100th birthday. Her kids (who, as you can guess, are no spring chickens themselves) threw her a big party at a local restaurant. In addition to the dinner, they wanted to send something home to the guests for them to remember this auspicious day.

Son Bob has an amazing garden which happened to be full of strawberries. He decided to make a small jar of jam for everyone from his own berries. He found the jars, designed the personalized lid, made the jam, and voila - he had an interesting practical gift for everyone. Assembling 75 jars of jam was a labor of love for sure -  unique, appropriate and fun. A great way to mark the moment.
