As the 4th of July festivities kick into gear and parties/gatherings begin, I thought I would share a few go-to host/hostess ideas starting with a jar of jam. While flowers and wine can be lovely, we try and think a bit out of the box most times when it comes to gift giving. There are so many good jams out in the world and I have yet to meet someone who could not benefit from a good jar of jam. Insert large smile. Then spiff it up. Add a big block of French butter, a fresh baguette and wrap it all in a dish towel. Or go the cheese route, choosing a yummy piece of cheese that you think goes nicely with the jam, then add a horn spoon, presenting the trio on a little cutting board. Let your gift giving imagination run wild!
Have a lovely & safe Independence Day all. From WestWard. X, T2+B
