Kat's Bento Love's 1 Year Anniversary

Today marks exactly one year since I started Bento Blogging. My first Blog post was Wednesday, March 9th 2011. This past year has been a wild one, and soooo many things have changed. My bentos have (recently) become a lot healthier as well as much better looking.
I want to thank all my blog readers, and everyone who has commented on my blogs. Without you guys I would never have put so much into this blog. It really means a lot to me when I see that people have been looking at my blog, and I love reading the comments. I have replied back to each and every comment I received because I am so grateful that people take time out to read my blog and comment on it.
Thank you soooo much.
I wanted to make a special bento for my One Year Blogging Anniversary, so here it is. I hope you like it!
  • 100 Calorie Pack Almonds
  • Deli Turkey Flower
  • Pickle Rolls (Sandwich pickle rolled with mustard)
  • Boston Lettuce Leaf
  • Tomato Salad (Hollowed out Tomato, filled with chopped Cucumber, Carrot, Red Pepper)
  • Blueberries
  • Blackberries
  • Strawberry
  • Sandwich (Udi's Multigrain GF Bread, Mustard, Spinach, Red Pepper, Cucumber, Carrot)
  • 1 YEAR (Cut from Strawberry Fruit Leather)
  • Heart Logo (Made from Cheese and foodsafe markers)
I wanted this bento to be quick/easy to make, but I also wanted it to be special, so I planned it out last night and drew it using Microsoft Paint. 
 It looks pretty similar right? I have found that drawing out a bento idea is a great way to plan what you what to make, and how you want it to look, but it rarely ever comes out exactly as planned. But that's half the fun! 

I hope you all had a wonderful Year at Kat's Bento Love! I hope this next year will be more exciting and bento-tastic!


  1. SO CUTE! I particularly love the tomato salad; even though it's not something I'd eat; it's so cute and clever! <3!!!! Love all the flowers lately, too! Awesome awesome awesome! MORE, PLEASE! ^_^
    Congrats on the year mark! Here's to much more!

    1. Thank you Julie. The hollowed out tomato is actually something I did waaaay back when I first started making bentos. I hollowed out a tomato and put ranch dressing in it so I could dip my baby carrots in it. I thought I was being soooo fancy. lol
      Anyway, I thought I'd bring it back for this bento, and I like how this turned out so much more!
      The flowers must be a spring thing, I am subconsciously hoping for spring and flowers! lol
      Thank you so much, I am looking forward to another wonderful year of bentos!

    2. Well, it's awesome! And YAY!

  2. Wow time flys when you're having fun! Happy one year anniversary! Love your sweet and fun really comes across in every post you do! Looking forward to what you make for more years!

    1. Thank you so much. That means a lot to me. Without my followers and all the comments I never would have gotten this far.

  3. Happy 1 Year Anniversary!! I have been loving your blog and looking forward for many more years :)
