Homemade Hostess Gifts

    June 27, 2012

    No guest wants to show up to a party empty handed.  The only issue is finding the perfect gift to show your hostess just how much you appreciate the invitation, whether it's for a cocktail party or an overnight stay. Instead of searching store after store for the perfect gift, add a personal touch by making it yourself!





    Lemonade is the beverage of the season.  Give your hostess her own pitcher, tie on a spoon with a dish cloth, fill it with lemons and slip in your favorite recipe!



    Marmalade is a delicious treat that your hostess is sure to appreciate.  We love Simple Bite's Pink Grapefruit and Pomegranate Marmalade.  After you have prepared the spread, cover the top of the jar with cloth and add a personalized label.


    Say "thank you" for the invitation by allowing your hostess to continue the party long after you've left! Find a recipe for a homemade cocktail mixer, bottle it up and attach a label with a personalized note.




    Pre-measured dry mix in a jar is a big time saver and a great way to share your favorite recipe.  Traditionally this is done with cookie mix, but stand out from the other guests by bringing your hostess a jar of pancake mix!



    Regardless of what you decide to create, remember not to show up empty handed and always send a thank you note to remind your hostess how much you appreciated the invitation!
