Remember this post about the LCBO (the Liquor Control Board of Ontario) hosting a contest for bloggers who love Ontario wine? Well, yours truly won an honourable mention which consists of a $200 gift basket – and it arrived yesterday! I had it shipped to the office to avoid missing the delivery if they passed by the house and no one was there. It was a voluminous gift basket filled with fabulous loot, perfect to enjoy with a bottle of wine. I had to take it apart and bring pieces home separately. 🙂
The base of the gift basket was the bowl, which was seated on a serving tray (still at the office). It came filled with 2 tea towels, a package of cocktail napkins, a really nice glass wine bottle topper, a small olivewood cheese board, a white serving dish for antipasto/spreads, 4 plastic wine glasses (also still at the office), and the following goodies: lemon & fennel olives, mushroom with artichokes antipasto, current in the rye crackers and procini mushroom & white truffle oil bread dipper.
