Tonight my family and I attended a dinner at one of my dearest friends' homes. She and her husband were gracious enough to host my husband and I as well as our three year old and nine month old. When I asked her what I could bring she replied, "Just yourselves."
Like me, she loves to host so I knew that meant she had everything covered. With nothing to contribute I opted for a hostess gift, but what to bring? Wine? Nope - not big winos. Flowers? A plant? Always lovely, but not appropriate considering we are experiencing freezing weather in our city right now. I decided that if she was providing dinner, I would provide breakfast.
Here's a little home project I whipped up in less than half an hour to express gratitude for our lovely invitation. Thanks for dinner LGB :)
Four mini loaves of orange cranberry loaf baking at 400 degrees. . .and a spare for home snacking ;)
A white treat box (find it at Michael's Crafts) laced with scalloped tissue paper and pink shredded paper.
Four scrumptious mini loaves (one for each member of their family).
A little note to inform our hostess of the gift's purpose doubles as a thank you note :) And a toothpick with my own family initial for some flair.
I added two pink heart-shaped cookie cutters with pink raffia and felt hearts all-knotted up completes our simple presentation.
