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

DIY make store-bought flowers look like they came from the florist

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!

Fall Wish List

The Perfect Fall Outfit Ideas on CaliCrest.com

Lipstick | Handbag | Coat | Necklace | Faux Fur Stole | Boots

If this wish list doesn’t scream FALL I don’t know what does.  I’m obsessed with all of it!  Confession…. I’ve never tried over the knee boots.  The style I’ve liked are usually flats and I just don’t think my legs are long and lean enough for that but these boots have a wedge which I love (wedges are always comfortable and with the extra height lengthens the leg) so I’m thinking I need to give these a try.  Loving all these warm colors, hoping I can add some of these pieces to my closet!

Thanks so much for stopping by and reading.  Hope you have a great week and don’t forget to check back tomorrow for my hostess gift idea!
