Today, we want to give a shout out to Joanna and her site Hostess Jo, a supporter of we heart this. Joanna is a lady after our own heart who turned her love of entertaining (and all the fun of planning events) into her own blog, Let’s Entertain and a retail site, Hostess Jo. Joanna launched Hostess Jo after “planning various get-togethers, parties and events over the years, my friends and I continuously found it difficult to find different and unique items to make our parties more interesting and fun. I wanted to provide items to add something special to our parties without spending a ton of money – hence the development of HostessJo.com!”
Hostess Jo promises “items to make any get together special and one-of-a-kind.” Browse through her inventory to see her hand picked specialty items to add that special touch to your next girls night out or book club. Or find unique and affordable gifts for a hostess, birthdays and more.
My favorites include the Paradise Beverage Glasses (pictured above) for easy glass identification after you and your girls work through that first bottle of bubbly. Or add a twist to the standard yummy candle by gifting one of the Entertaining Candles. Each is cutely titled with scents catering to its theme. My favorite is called Lighten up and it contains “essences of winter mint and crisp woodland pine to counteract obsessing on the unimportant” and includes an inspirational saying etched on the glass holder (Because somebody, somewhere has it far crappier than you). Or, if you’re the type to plan ahead, summer (and all her patriotic holidays) is just around the corner. Show your stars and stripes from Memorial Day through Labor Day with this flag themed Chip and Dip Platter.
If you are looking for some new recipes and fresh ides make sure to check out Let’s Entertain, and if you are in need of some cute hosting accessories, look no further than Hostess Jo! And as Joanna reminds us “most importantly though, we want you have fun hosting!” Cheers!
What a wonderful surprise! I am so flattered by all of the nice, complimentary things Tyna and Stef said about my shop and blog! Thank you so much ladies!
If you haven't been to We Heart This, you really should. I go there to find out about new products, how to's, latest in beauty and fashion, decorating, etc, etc. Here is a bit about the site: We have lots to say and share: from easy ways to eat, drink and be merry, to effortless beauty and fashion tips, to what you’ll be reading, watching and listening to this month, we cover it all! You’ll find WHT is an entertaining support network where women shamelessly rave about the stuff they adore and we want you to join in the discussion and become part of the community. We also offer forums where you will find chicks chatting about just about anything. And members can even have their own blogs within the WHT community.
I heart them!
