My very favorite hostess gift is a big or small cut mixed bouquet of flowers, herbs, and greens from my perennial gardens.  Depending on the season, and the host’s or hostess’s personality, and of course, what’s blooming or thriving determine’s what I put together, and using a simple glass cylinder works for all. Stocking up on inexpensive glass cylinders in a variety of sizes (you can find these at a place like HomeGoods) is a good idea, this way you’ll always be prepared.

This pretty bouquet for my dear friend, Bernadette, is made up of various colored hydrangea (white, pink, lavender, and green), mint, butterfly bush, coneflowers, daisies, aster, zinnia, and Rose of Sharon. This color palette reminds me of her…very pretty and sweet!

This is just another reason why I love growing my gardens.

Happy gardening!

Love, Nora
