Holiday Survival: Ho Ho Ho-stess!
‘Tis the season…..for Holiday Parties, Open Houses & Cookie, and Gift Exchanges!
One of the things I really enjoy is bringing a thoughtful gift to anyone hosting a Holiday Gathering. The gift doesn’t need to be expensive, just thoughtful….and a must for me is to wrap it up really pretty, of course!
Here is a link to a short, quick read from Emily Post on Hostess Gifts that you may find helpful!

My personal philosophy on bringing a hostess gift……
I think about the person that will be receiving the gift & what they would enjoy receiving. I believe that if that person thought enough of me to invite me, prepare food –or whatever- for me and all the other guests and take care of all the details that go along with opening your home to guests, the very least I can do is to bring a beautifully wrapped, thoughtful gift AND send a handwritten Thank You note after the event.
Ok….back to my own Holiday preparations…..still lots to do!
ENJOY these next few weeks of celebrations…..they will pass all too quickly!
Make this your BEST Holiday Season ever!
SPARKLE & SHINE!
