As much as I love hosting a party, there’s something undeniably relaxing about being someone else’s guest. Letting someone else plan, decorate, cook, entertain, and clean up (always offer to help!) is a treat, am I right? I learned early that you always bring the host a gift, so over the years, I’ve gotten creative about what I bring. If you want to skip the standard vase of flowers, I’ve got a pretty and simple DIY hostess gift alternative that would be perfect to bring to an Independence Day party or backyard BBQ. I’ve combined a simple dip dye technique with a little fast hand stamping to create a red, white, and blue kitchen towels that are sure to please.
