Fabulous Gift Idea
I was reading some of my old Romantic Homes magazines and I came across an idea to share with you. If you keep your old Romantic Homes, check out the June 2005 issue. I've used this idea a few times and I received accolades for my creativity!
You can create an easy hostess gift with just three items. You will need a tea towel or linen towel, a bouquet of flowers, and some pretty ribbon. Wrap the flowers in the towel and tie it with the ribbon.
Here's another variation. You can use a men's necktie and add pearls for a sophisticated look.
I usually have tea towels on hand to give as gifts. Sometimes I give the tea towel bouquets as hostess gifts. I gave one when I was invited to a BBQ. The hostess always has plenty of food on hand so I thought it would be better to bring flowers
If you use a printed towel, keep the flowers simple.
I think I'll use this one as a hostess gift at Thanksgiving. Some autumnal flowers
will look lovely in this towel.
I also like to use some humorous towels for my bouquets. I think this one might apply to me!
I know this one definitely applies to me!
If any of you make a bouquet, let me know I'd love to see how it turns out.
