A WandafulThing 12 Days of Christmas 2017 – Day 5

                                    A WandafulThing 12 Days of Christmas 2017 

Welcome to Day 5 of my 12 Days of Christmas 2017. I’m honored to say that I’ve had loyal readers who have been with me since the beginning and look forward to what theme and  ideas I come up with year to year.

Day 5 is an interesting and unique twist on a hostess gift. I always make a point to bring a gift to the host/hostess when I am invited into their home. I also try to be creative with my gift and/or presentation of the gift.  I found this gorgeous Mont Royale Cardinal Collection vintage crystal ice bucket at Salvation Army (under $5.00), value $50-85 (win win).

A small poinsettia is also a nice hostess gift.  I don’t usually like the plain green pot they come in, so I wrapped it in a piece of decomesh (yes I love the stuff because it is so versatile) and I used the ice bucket as the way to present it.  I think it looks great and it’s actually two gifts in one.

It’s been a great deal of fun preparing for this event, and I can’t wait to show you what the next Wandaful Thing  is – be sure to come back for Day 6.
