Hostess Gift Ideas


As a hostess one of the things I have always enjoyed were handmade gifts. Some of my favorites to give and receive is handmade fudge, cookies, or maybe a good bottle of wine!

Is your hostess a coffee lover? What better than a loaf of homemade banana bread with some flavored coffee!

Or for the hostess that loves to spend time in the kitchen, how about some new towels, and new cooking utensils.

Can’t you just imagine to look on your hostess’ face when you put a little thought into a special gift for her!

Have an awesome day!

Simple Décor for the Fireplace Mantel

We are all busy working, taking care of the kids, and we all suddenly realize that the holidays are upon us!

Where did summer, and then November go? Today we have some simple, yet adorable and colorful.

We all have those ugly vases, yes I said ugly vase, but when you fill them full of colorful vintage glass ornaments, and lights they go from ugly drab to FAB!!

Just add a little greenery and you’re ready for holiday entertaining!

 

Until next time!
