At our recent holiday party, Ziploc saved my sanity in many ways. I did all of the baking the afternoon before the party, and the 9 1/2 cup large rectangle containers from Ziploc, made preparation and transportation a lot easier. As soon as the cupcakes had cooled down, I could easily move them into the large rectangle containers from Ziploc, and there was even plenty of room in the containers for icing as well. The large holiday food containers from Ziploc stored 8 cupcakes perfectly, and because of the size they fit so snugly that the icing remained beautiful despite transport.

At the day of the party, I simply stacked all of the large Ziploc containers in a big plastic bag, and they were easy to transport to the playground down the street.

At the party, the Ziploc containers saved us yet again, as we could keep the food covered and flies away, while still keep the buffet table looking festive in holiday colors. The green and red colors of the Ziploc plastic containers matched our red tablecloths perfectly.

The smaller red Ziploc containers, which come in both round and square containers, were perfect for snacks such as pretzels, chips and cookies. Once again,we could easily have all the snacks readily available while covered.

The limited edition Ziploc holiday themed freezer bags worked great for goody bags, and the kids were eager to uncover what was in their special treat bags after the Santa hat game.


After the party, the holiday themed food storage containers worked perfectly for leftovers.

As an extra bonus, the holiday containers from Ziploc are great for food gifting. The kids and I love baking cookies, brownies and other holiday treats for our friends and neighbors, and Ziploc makes food gifting a lot easier. Simply add a bow, a ribbon and a little note, and you have the perfect homemade holiday gift.
