We’re headed over to to a BBQ this afternoon at our friends’ place and instead of bringing a bottle of wine or a cute dish towel or one of the usual “thanks for having me over” kinda of gifts you bring when you go to someone’s house, I thought I might try to see what goodies I could bring from my yard.
Not only is it more economical (aka cheaper), it’s more personal and kinda fun — and since it’s the height of harvest season, we have lots to choose from.
I think the basket I put together turned out pretty, cute — don’t you?
We’ve got thyme, oregano, rosemary, basil, broccoli, green beans and lettuce in there. What do you bring when you go over to people’s houses?
Freshness sings ! The hostess will be happy to see this and quick to invite you back!
Beautiful! What a fun gift! Lately my gifts have been zucchini and sage. Soon cherry tomatoes will join that pile along with beets, cucumbers, pickles and jelly.
As the recipient, I can tell you that this gift was wonderfully unexpected! We enjoyed it for days to come and the personalization was too sweet.
Don’t let me forget, I have your basket!
