"Looking for the perfect gift, or just a little indulgence to get you through oh, the next month or so? Then you have to check out these two new LetterBoxes from Sky of Blue Cards!
The second LetterBox is near and dear to me, because I know I’m not the only one who tends to get more run-down with each day of December that passes. The Wellness LetterBox speaks to that need for some much-needed self-care! Karla partnered with Michelle, owner of The Festive Table — a nutrition-focused company coaching clients toward healthy habits — to create this gem."

"Nothing makes me happier than to have my finicky little one come home telling me she ate "Red Chopped Salad" or "Broiled Japanese Eggplants" and LOVED it, and as if that is not enough, she brings home the recipes...WOW! Michelle also understands our allergy and lactose intolerance specifics and puts a lot of effort into making the meals inclusive and yummy for my lactose intolerant child whose favorite meal is macaroni and cheese! Tonight I made Michelle's signature macaroni and cheese lactose-free version and the whole family, including my husband, said thank you for a fabulous dinner. Those of us who have had the privilege of enjoying Michelle's classes, either through a child or adult, know the extraordinary time and care she takes to make recipes easy to replicate and delicious to the finickiest of finicky. I can't thank her enough!!
"I love feeling more in control of my life and where I am going! My goals and everything seem possible and in my near future. Michelle was able to help me work towards my health goals by providing multiple paths to get there, and providing recipes that are easy to make. She gave me homework that helped open my eyes to outside influences and the control I have over them. My whole mindset around habits with food, working out and how I take care of myself is so positive now. All thanks to Michelle."
I was looking for something different and special for my daughter's 9th birthday party. My daughter loves to cook and a friend recommended The Festive Table. My daughter loved her party! Michelle was super easy to work with and took care of all the details (including shopping, hosting the party and clean up). She worked with us to provide a fun menu and she provided chef hats for the girls as well as take home menus. The table was beautifully set. The girls had a fabulous time cooking and eating their brunch. I loved it because my daughter was happy and it was a no stress party for me!
Michelle DeWolf’s aim is to get people to stick to their healthy New Year’s resolutions
For Menlo Park resident Michelle DeWolf, what started as a volunteer project teaching cooking classes at Oak Knoll School morphed first into cooking classes and party planning for kids and parents, and, more recently, health and wellness coaching. And it’s all under the umbrella of The Festive Table.
“This is what I was born to do,” Michelle says enthusiastically. “The health and wellness component adds a structure to what I’ve already been doing for 10 years.
Working with teens
"My daughter has now lost 20+ pounds, her blood sugar levels are back to normal, her complexion is glowing and her confidence is stronger than ever. Michelle is such a positive role model for my teenager and she really walks the walk. She understood the emotional side of these big life changes and works through and encourages gently and never gives up."
