Vanilla Simple Syrup Hostess Gift

I don’t know about you, but I often find myself visiting friends or neighbours’ homes and wishing that I had something a little more interesting than wine to offer as a hostess gift. Don’t get me wrong – wine is a wonderful gift. But it’s sometimes nice to show up with something a little different.  And who doesn’t love receiving something sweet (and oh so pretty)?

Although it’s great in cocktails, over ice cream, and with summer berries, vanilla-infused simple syrup also pairs nicely with hot cocoa, coffee and pancakes so this is also a lovely gift leading into Fall and the holidays beyond. Just change up your labels to something festive and you’re set!

Cupcake Toppers & Gift Tags | Pumpkin Birthday Party

Robin’s birthday is in October, so when we celebrated her first birthday (2 years ago!) I loved the idea of a pumpkin-themed party. Once I got going, it ended up being SO easy to make decorations inspired by autumn and pumpkins and to tie everything together using various shades of orange, brown, yellow and green. Although I had to spend a little money for some essential items (colourful paper, pumpkin press, etc.), I’ve been able to re-use these supplies each year.
