Lucky you! You’ve been invited to an autumn dinner party at a friend’s house. Aside from figuring out what to wear, you need to decide what to bring the host or hostess with the mostess!
To me, this is opportunity to express your gratitude in advance, for what is sure to be a memorable evening. If you’ve hosted a party (big or small) yourself, you realize how much thought, planning and last minute scrambling is involved. How fun for the host to blow out the candles at the end of the evening and open a thoughtfully chosen gift form you.
So, what should you take?
Pair this silver tea strainer with the aromatic and beautifully packaged Bellocq Tea – available at And George.
Put together a “breakfast basket” for the morning after…include an earthy wooden cutting board, fresh bread or croissants and your favorite jam or honey.
Know your hosts favorite color?
At $55, these throws from Company C (thanks, Traci!), paired with a hip box of matches ( Iomoi.com) are a lovely way for your host to relax by the fire after the big night.
No matter what you take, like all things, it is the thought the counts. And, it’s always appreciated when you consider the recipient and what they might enjoy!
Here’s to a wonderful weekend and lots of invitations coming your way!
