Flowers for the Hostess

Today I’m sharing the perfect gift to take along with you when you’ve been invited for dinner. I don’t drink alcohol so taking wine is not my thing, flowers on the other hand are everyone’s thing!  I picked up these flowers from the grocery store but can’t give them with the bright plastic wrapper on it so here’s what I did….

Start with your flowers, butcher paper, bakers twine, and scissors

Cut a square of butcher paper, place your flowers in, and wrap them up…

Wrap your bakers twine (or ribbon) around a few times and tie in a bow.  And there you have it!  A cute little bunch of flowers that look twice as nice as store-bought!
