living a full, fun, & fabulous life
having fun all summer often requires the obligatory hostess gift. with just a little extra thought you can bring a basket that will both please your host and make all the other guests jealous of your thoughtful ingenuity!
the “little rhody basket”
with presents, I always like to give a little representation of myself or something that speaks to the relationship I have with the person receiving the gift. Sometimes the gift is something that symbolizes a shared hobby, or a favorite treat. In this case I wanted to share something that was special to me, which of course, is my home state. It has a fourth of July theme (as it was presented at a fourth of July party) and is filled with little rhody’s best gems: Newport Vineyards Wine, Catanzaro’s pepper biscuits, and Narragansett Creamery’s award winning cheese spread.
the “never-over-stay-your-welcome basket”
I made this basket for two of may favorite new yorkers that always so willingly allow me to crash at their apartment. filled with all the amenities that I use of their’s the most, I figured they’d appreciate my re-filling of their stock.
