Best Price for Roses

Last year before Valentines Day we got lucky…..two of our local grocery stores had price wars over Roses.  Two dozen for $15 at one store….1 dozen for $10 at another.  Surprisingly they lasted almost 10 days… please let me know if you live in the San Antonio area and see a “deal” on roses and I’ll be sure and let you know if/when I see the same.  At that price you can afford to even get them for yourself!Roses (2)

First Class Entertaining

th[1]Asking folks to fill their own plates doesn’t have to mean you don’t want them to be impressed.  It’s the little things that can help make a gathering look like you went out of your way to make sure your guests know they are important….I borrowed a flatware caddy to store folks, knives and spoons for a holiday gathering at our home…..and after packing it up to return it to it’s lucky owner I realized I had to own one myself….since using this one was so impressive I didn’t want my family and friends to think I didn’t care as much for them this year as last!  Search the internet for “flatware caddy”….and keep searching.  I found the above in bronze for almost 1/3 of the price of several websites.   $49.99  had the best price I could find.

Happy entertaining!


Christmas Cards….How to Display

I still love sending Christmas Cards....and if you send cards, you typically end up getting cards.  I love going into a home and seeing the cards they have received....and this year found a special spot to diplay them.  If you are lucky enough to get Christmas cards, find a special place to display them.  If someone who gave you one comes helps them appreciate the time they spent writing them and taking the time to send them.  Makes the holidays seem a little more meaningful!  Happy holidays!
