10 Best & Affordable Hostess Gift Ideas

Hostess gift, host gift, party gift, gifts, eventsojudith

With Summer in official full swing, there might be a few summer party invites - don't break the number 1 rule and show up empty handed - a well wrapped hostess gift is the way to go. So while you're out shopping for that perfect summer dress with wedges, think of your hostess and what he or she would like. I know the norm is a bottle of wine or flowers, but there's so much more you can bring to the party, literally.

Before you swipe your credit card, first thing you have to figure out is? What type of person is your host or hostess? Is he or she an avid reader and collect books? Is she a DIY hostess? A single crafty mom? A home designer and decorator? Would she appreciate the purple orchids as much as a florist would? Is she the go-to baker in the city or a philanthropist housewife?

Once you've figured out those answers, the rest is easy (trust me). And if you're still thinking what to get, don't worry I have you cover.

Life, Journey & Friendship

The other day, I stumbled on this article from The Everygirl. "How to Maintain a Friendship When You’re in Different Life Stages," and it was eye opening and I had to share it with you guys.  This may seem a little off topic from the blog, but it really is not. If you think about entertaining and hosting, family *and* friends are part of the celebration. As I move forward on my blogging journey, be on the look for more of these types of post along with all the pretty parties, DIY and hosting you've come to expect.

First off, we all thought those high school even college friendships would last forever, and well as some does, but a lot don't. When I left Connecticut and moved to Florida, I left all my friends behind. Then came college - made some new friends - and eventually lost touch with those two. and then there was my late 20s and 30s when there wasn't a party I didn't know about. You know those annoying club flyers that promoters would stick under your wipers, well I had dozen of those. But as I moved on moved from that stage and became a mother, even some of those friendships were "left behind," as I've made new ones, (shout to my girls, we may not talk every week, but when we get together we swap kid stories like nobodies business).
