Answer: My hostess gifts for last week!
One of the joys of the holidays is the holiday parties and events. However, this calls for a hostess gift. A bottle of wine is fine or a candle or a book….but I think everyone loves seeing their name (or initials) on something, as it says you chose it just for them.
I wanted to share these with you as they came from a source, La Plates, that you normally associate with….well, plates. But, they do so much more. Look what they cooked up for the blogger gathering, LAVISH, in Atlanta!! (So wish I could have been there!)
Another reason I love these gifts…is that they are so pretty, that with a little cellophane, shred and ribbon, they are “wrapped” and ready to give! There I go, embellishing again!
The acrylic bowl can be used now for popcorn, which is how I packaged it…with popcorn bags from Williams-Sonoma and Orville Redenbacher popcorn. Once the weather warms up, the hostess can use it outside by the pool for chips or salad!
Cocktail napkins give instant panache to a holiday bar. And, it’s always nice to have a crisp new set!
RED is a great color for a gift…as it can used all year long. Think Valentine’s, 4th of July, Labor Day and Christmas.
What are you wrapping up this week?
