Hostess Gifts on Better KC

Today I was on Better KC sharing homemade hostess gift ideas and demonstrated how to make my rosemary mint sugar scrub.

I also shared my cinnamon bread, which is a favorite because the host or hostess relax and enjoy a homemade breakfast, without the fuss, the day after hosting.  I also love that you can present it in a darling loaf pan they can use again and again.

Hand towels are an inexpensive and easy gift as well as a burlap table runner that can be used year round.  And who does’t love stationery?  Don’t worry, there’s a printable for that!

Don’t miss this winter mint bubble bath – you’ll want to make one for yourself!
A hostess gift doesn’t have to be time consuming or expensive, just thoughtful.  Thank you to Better Kansas City for hosting me!

    Hey Julie!
    Just wanted to say hello from Manhattan, KS….we are practically neighbors. :)
    I ran across your blog the other day…and am enjoying following you. :)
    Are you as excited about having IKEA in KC as I am?…I do love that place.
    Love your decorating style….

      You’re breaking my heart, Linda :) We moved to St. Louis just a couple months prior to their opening. Fortunately, I’m within driving distance of two now & they’re opening one here next year. Thanks so much for taking the time to introduce yourself {and flatter me}!
