Bar in a box

This is one hostess gift I'd love to get. And if I gave it, then I think I would be the most amazing guest anyone has ever welcomed into their home. And tis the season for cocktail parties and open houses, which makes this the perfect gift to bring along. Designer Kevin Sharkey gives you all the delicious steps to put this together over on Martha Stewart Living.

If you feel a bit overwhelmed about the cost of putting one of these together for each party you're attending this holiday season, make a mini version.  Trade the tray for a simple brown paper bag with handles and create a bar in a bag, adding a bottle of Prosecco (you can find some very tasty varieties for $15 or less), some festive napkins, peppermint bark, a couple of taper candles tied with pretty ribbon, and matches. You can still use an attention grabbing ribbon to tie everything together by tying the bag handles together and making a large bow.

Have any hostess gifts ideas that you'll be giving this season?
