You have a fabulous dinner party invitation, you have a flattering outfit chosen, hair appointment booked ahead but…what gift do you plan to give the hosts?

You can’t arrive empty-handed; it would help if you had a gift that is stylish and beautiful. It should also show the host that you appreciate their efforts in putting together this evening of delight that you will enjoy.

Flowers are always appreciated, impressive and las t as a memory afterwards.


It is best to arrive with the bouquet already styled into a beautiful arrangement or bouquet

There are a variety of florals you can choose from such as a relaxed country bunch, a striking ikebana arrangement, or maybe a monochrome bouquet.

It helps the florist if you can tell them the personality of the person to whom you are presenting the flowers to, and they can design something to suit their personality or their home . Let the professional event florists Gold Coast do what they do best.

What Else

The next popular option is wine, subject to the hostess’ lifestyle. It is appropriate for most dinner parties. It is traditionally appropriate for the bottle to not be opened during the party itself; it should be a keeper.

There are alternatives for wine, i.e. scotch or champagne and nowadays you can get speciality brews for the craft beer fanatic.

Alternative gifts include potted plants, cheeses (you need to know your guest’s preference), savoury nibbles, or other speciality food items.

The “Bring Nothing” Host

So, food and drink gifts are a definite no-no in this instance. This is a good time to bring a pre-arranged bouquet of flowers or a scented candle.
