Chances are, you’re attending a dinner party sometime this holiday season. And while it may not be on the level of Thanksgiving, it’s still a gathering in which your host or hostess will be going to some effort to make a nice meal and put out all the decor. In that case, it’s time to think about the thank-you gift you’ll offer in return.
Hostess gifts have been around forever, and while there’s some debate about what’s appropriate to give, one thing is for sure, at least to Billy Heromans Flowers & Gifts: Fall florals are never wrong.
Try to have your floral item delivered the day before or the day after, so as not to put your host or hostess out. The last thing you want to do is to have them searching for a spot to display your gift as they are in the middle of putting the finishing touches on an elaborate dinner. To avoid this, offer a Fall European Garden Basket, which is full of colorful blooms but green, too. This could go indoors or out, giving your host more options as to where to place it for maximum enjoyment. By the same token, our Essence of Autumn design fits in anywhere your host may want a dash of Fall decor.
Our Chinese Evergreen is an equally accommodating gift, hardy enough for outdoors but a cheery reminder of greener days if you keep it in.
Don’t arrive empty-handed to the dinners you’re invited to this season. Instead, send a gift in advance or the day after the event, along with a personal note acknowledging the special occasion and your host’s thoughtfulness in including you. We here at Billy Heromans Flowers & Gifts are happy to help you find just the right gift.
