5 Lust-Worthy Hostess Gifts to Ensure You Get Invited Back

August is here (can you believe it?!) and it's time to squeeze every last bit of summer left.  Insist that every meal be eat outside, order one more glass (ok, two) of rose, and extend that weekend an extra day.  And while summer may be winding down, giving the perfect hostess gift is always in season.  These gorgeous gifts not only show gratitude but are sure to score you an invite to the next wave of festivities come fall.  

1. Flowers are always a winner and you can never have enough roses.  This Landeau bouquet is available in a variety of hues to match her style.  

2.  What better way to say "Cheers" to summer than these anchor ice trays?!

3. Ideal for the home chef, this recipe journal is as practical as it is beautiful.  

4. The perfect little something to accompany the traditional bottle of bubbly.

5.  Candles can be tricky, but if you know your hostess well enough to be able to sniff out her style, they are a truly thoughtful gift.  Every time she lights it, she'll be reminded of you!  Le Feu De L'eau Candles are shaped by water and couldn't be more decadent.  Extra points if accompanied by these gorgeous Apothecary Matches.  

What's your favorite hostess gift to give or receive?

Weekend Warrior

May is one of my favorite months.  Not only is it my birthday (!), but May represents the kick off to summer AND that means summer Fridays.  Those blissful days of wrapping up at 1pm and getting a jumpstart on the weekend.  And whether catching the cannonball out East or heading upstate, one thing is for sure, you need your bag to travel (and look great while doing so).  Check out the below options to take on the weekend in style.

Spring Showers

Every once in a while I love a nice rainy day.  It forces you inside and under the covers and is the perfect excuse get cozy and lazy.  Today's soft drizzle is effectively removing the last bits of snow and has me dreaming of spring.  Each season Mr. C and I create a list of sights we'd like to see, date spots we'd like to try, and things we'd like to do.  Here are just a few things that I'm looking forward to once spring officially gets going:

- Picnics.  I'm slightly obsessed with picnics, and this past Christmas I got the best picnic basket ever!  (Similar one here)  I'm so excited to head to Central Park or upstate with this beauty in tote.

- Baking inspiration.  I'm always on the hunt for a new recipe, and I try to create a few "Food Goals" for things I might be intimidated to try.  Currently topping the list - croissants,  these biscuits, and soft pretzels.  Bring on the gluten!

- Tennis - I haven't played, or even attempted to play, in years, but I'd love to pick up a racket again.  

-Polo Match - I've been dying to go to the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic forever.  Hopefully we can get tickets this year.  I have my hat all ready to go.

-Spring Sites - Living in an apartment, I'm a bit starved for flowers.  I'd love to get my floral fix at The Orchid Show

What's on your Spring to-do list?
