Hostess Gift 2.0

I've already shared my hostess gift revelation for dinner parties—breakfast bread is the new bottle of red—but what to bring for a whole weekend at a friend's gorgeous getaway? 

Stripey candles!

Candles aren't something you're apt to splurge on, but when they're striped? And over a foot tall? To say nothing of the endless color combinations (fern-peacock, sage-linen, wasabi-mint...) We have a set on our kitchen table and they're pure awesome, you can't help but smile at their cheery disposition. Grinning at inanimate objects? I blame the stripes.

All that to say, the stripe, smile, and splurge factors spell perfect hostess gift in my book.

Ribboned, wrapped and monogrammed, we're ready for a weekend in the mountains. To Tahoe!
