If you ever need a lesson on etiquette – don’t come to me. My mom gave me a copy of
Emily Post’s Etiquette…I never read it. I’ll probably pass it down to my daughter one day – maybe she can teach me a thing or two about manners.
I do know how to set a table, though. And, I do know which forks and spoons I’m supposed to use. I also know that you should always bring a small gift when attending a dinner party as someone’s home.
Typically, I’ll bring a bottle of good wine in a nice bag – maybe a cute wine tag if I have time.
With warm weather approaching and countless cookouts and picnics on the horizon, I thought I’d share this project which could be the perfect hostess gift for sunshine filled parties…and a great alternative to the oh-so-common bottle of wine.
This project was inspired by these fabby bottles from the Container Store:
I’m loving the colors in this card – and they coordinate PERFECTLY with the current Play Date Cafe Challnge #80 – so bright and screaming for summer!
