Do you bring hostess gifts?
I'm a big fan of bringing a little something when invited into a home. If I am bringing part of the meal, I don't typically bring a gift (though do sometimes). But if invited over, I like to take along a little sursey to let the hostess know I appreciate the hospitality.
Candy is not one I usually bring. However, after scoring four free bags of chocolate at Target on Saturday, I decided that I could make them work as a little happy hostess gift.
These bags are pretty small. So just handing them over as is would be rather skimpy. But add cellophane and a bow and you are back in business.
It amazes me how much of a difference a little packaging can make.
All you need is a bag of candy, a clear cellophane bag (available online or at any craft store in the gift wrap section- don't forget your 40% off coupons!), and a length of ribbon.
Candy goes into the bag. I had to fold over the top to get it to fit into this size bag. Then simply tie up with some ribbon.
So crazy simple but doesn't it just make a HUGE difference?! It goes from whatever to something special in a skinny minute.
The difference is in the details!
