|Entertaining Made Lovely: Hostess gift ideas|
Everyone loves a good party. And now there is no need to stress out deciding on a gift for your hostess.
Here are some unique, easy and (mostly) DIY hostess gift ideas. A great hostess gift doesn't have to cost a lot of money and is always a very thoughtful gesture.
I hope these ideas give you some inspiration.
1. Color-block terra cotta pots filled with succulents from Suburban Lawn and Garden or Joe's Market and Nursury in Olathe
2. Homemade Lemon loafTutorial here and here
3.DIY wine stoppers (with a bottle of wine from the Cellar Rat)Tutorial here
5. Mrs. Lilien's Cocktail Swatchbook: Classic Cocktails with a Twist, only $10 here
It is always a good idea to attach a note of some kind to any hostess gift you give.
I designed 24 small gift tags in trendy retro, chevron, herringbone and ikat patterns...and I want to share them with you.to download the 2 sets of print ready tags that are pictured below. They will open full size and all you have to do is print them on letter sized white paper (heavier stocks work best), cut out with scissors, punch a hole at the top and attach it to your gift with some ribbon. You can even write a message on the back if you wish.
