Hostess Gifts

Thanks Aunt G (#1 blog post of the year contributor ;)) for this tip for giving a hostess flowers.

"Oh here's a tip.  I think I read it and liked it.  When giving a hostess flowers have them in a vase.  It is so much nicer than the host trying to find a vase and trying to arrange them while you're going crazy getting the dinner together. Its inexpensive too. Vases can be bought for $1.00 each at garage sales.  I always have about 5 or 6 ready to use.  Of course, it's even better if you have a garden of flowers.

One hydrangea is beautiful or sunflower in a bud vase.  Don't be afraid of cutting tall flowers down to the size of your vase.   If you don't like the vase, wrap it in some tissue paper with a ribbon around the neck."

I usually keep vases from flowers that are sent to me and do the same thing. Thanks for sharing this tip!
