Need a gift in a hurry for the hippest of hostesses? Last week, I blogged about the amazing poolside baby shower my friends threw for me. For their hostess gifts, I wanted something that perfectly complemented my friends' gourmet cooking talents while tipping a hat to the theme of the shower.
The end result? Dainty (but oversized, mugs filled with a lemon thyme plant, and accessorized with a cute little cocktail umbrella. The final product was delightful, and reminded me of a tiny little patio, perfect for fairies and teeny sun-seekers.
I failed to take a picture of the mugs in their final form, but the following is montage of the supplies I used. This is a great summer hostess gift, and the lemon thyme is an unusual but very versatile herb that can happily grow in its mug, while sitting on the windowsill of the recipient's kitchen. Practical and pretty!
Lovely mugs from www.anthropologie.com.
