A Rustic Chic Hostess Gift (Thank You, House Beautiful!)

Everyone knows it’s just plain good manners to never arrive at a party empty-handed.  Your host and hostess have gone to great lengths to make your visit a special and unforgettable event.  And I was very appreciative and honored when I was asked by Shax Riegler, who writes “The Last Word” and “Send Us a Picture Of . . .” columns for House Beautiful magazine, to comment for the November issue on what I believe is the perfect hostess gift.  I really love the pamplemousse (grapefruit) scented potpourri from Cote Bastide.  It’s like bringing a chic little box of jewels to the party.  Be sure to pick up a copy of HB’s November issue which is entitled “The Ultimate Entertaining Issue.”  It’s full of wonderful entertaining ideas just in time for the holidays.  Thanks to Shax and editor-in-chief, Newell Turner!
