For many of us, the holidays are filled with party after party, dinner after dinner. Not that we're complaining. We certainly love a good holiday soiree and are always on the hunt for a sweet little something to say thank you to the hostess with the mostess. With a few pretty items from Pier 1 Imports and some DIY magic, we crafted the perfect hostess gift to bring to your next get together.
