Arriving with a hostess gift is a great way to make a good impression. Whether it is family or friend, my colorful votives make a nice affordable gift. Stop by the Dedham Guild to see the other colors.

If you really had a nice time, wash the bowl and leave it for your host... I'm sure you'll be invited again.
