I'm a big fan of hostess gifts, especially because I know that entertaining can be hard at times. I love thinking of original ideas, rather than the predictable bottle of wine (although always appreciated!) These paint dipped wooden utensils would be perfect to bring to a dinner party. Just use masking tape to tape off a straight line, and then paint away! I think painting a pair of salad servers would be my choice. I'd love to hear any hostess gift ides you have!
