Be a Good Host

I’m nowhere close to being a good host. Don’t get me wrong, I’m very hospitable. Yes, come inside my house! Take a seat! But after that, you’re on your own. You’re lucky if I remember to offer you a drink.

So of course these quick tips for easy entertaining over at quickly caught my eye. The idea of setting out multiple votives sparked my interest the most, especially after hosting a sparkless dinner for my sister-in-law while my brother was out of the country. I vowed to go votive crazy the next chance I got, and I knew just the place.

On my recent thrifting excursion, I noticed miles of shelves exclusively stocked with small glasses, handfuls of which could be used as votives. And handfuls there were. Here is just the beginning of my future collection.

    much love — us two
