For the container, I would use either a rustic looking basket, considering the time St. Joseph lived, or a nice wooden tray to represent his carpentry.
- A loaf of fresh Italian bread
- A decorative container filled with salt
- A bottle of Chianti
Bread - that this house may never know hunger.
Salt - that life may always have flavor.
Wine - that joy and prosperity may reign forever.
I would inscribe this blessing on a nice card added inside the basket.
I would then add a dessert, Italian cookies or cream puffs, to complete the symbol of St. Joseph's table.
Lastly I would add a framed quote or picture with a family theme as St. Joseph is known as the Protector of Family.
The final presentation would be wrapped in cellophane and decorated with red and white ribbon/bow and a white lily.
