Hostess Gifts

Friday, April 27, 2012

Hello, hello!!

Just wanted to share the gifts I put together for the wonderful friends and co-workers who hosted my showers a few weeks ago. I saw an idea very similar to this on Pinterest, but of course I didn't pin it because many of my hostesses follow me and would have seen it and now of course I can't find it! Typical.

We picked up a few flats of pretty petunias at a garden center and wrapped them in some adorable wrapping paper I got a few months ago.

Add some twine and a little note and wa-la! A cute little gift. After an hour of brainstorming, my mother-in-law and I finally came up with "Thank You, May Your Life Bloom With Blessings!" We thought it was fitting :).

Of course, the flowers can't stay in this type of packaging-- they need to be re-potted or planted in a flower bed, but I think they are a sweet, very afforable warm-weather gift if you have a lot of hostesses to think about!

Anyone seen any other good hostess gifts lately? I LOVE to look at this kind of stuff! Have a wonderful day!
