Thank you so much for helping me with my hostess gift emergency! All of you had such wonderful ideas that I started a file with all of your suggestions so the next time I have a hostess gift to buy I will be more than prepared!
After reading all of your suggestions, I visited my favorite local gift shop, Plain Jane Designs, to pick up a wine stopper. My plan was to pair it with cute napkins or cute wine charms. However, the beautiful wine stoppers they once had were sold out. I had no idea what to do because I didn't have time to visit another store looking for wine stoppers. I wandered around the store aimlessly not knowing where to turn next when the owner, Jane, stepped in to help. I told her my situation, and she put together the cutest hostess gift for me!
The gift included a small pewter platter, a matching pewter spreader, and a jar of specialty jam. Attached to the gift was a recipe to make with the jam. Here are a few pictures! Sorry for the poor quality. I was snapping pictures of the gift as my husband was dragging me out the door to leave for the party.
The party was so much fun! We drank wine, sampled cheeses, and even made some new friends!
By the way, sorry for missing my Monday post. I got home late Monday night. I had a fun girl's night out! I will tell you all about it tomorrow! It involved trying on expensive jewelry! What a way to spend an evening!!!!
