It is so nice to be invited to these fun functions but we often stress more after the invitation arrives. Once we figure out what to wear, what do we bring those hostess’ with the mostess’ that are doing all that dirty party work?
Here is a list that might be helpful for you in the next coming months. These are merely suggestions from your local neighborhood Baggin’s as well as local businesses like us in the Old Pueblo. Please remember to support your local mom-and-pop shops this season.
* Baggin’s delicious rum cake or carrot cake We make all of our delicious whole cakes fresh in our kitchen daily. It is wrapped in a box to-go with our signature raffia and chili pepper. $15.00 Call your neighborhood store for details.
* Baggin’s sinful dessert platter All of your favorite desserts from our stores on one sweet platter. Our famous chocolate chip cookies, chocoholic brownies, carrot cake bites and sliced rum cake that will serve 8-10 lucky folks. Call your neighborhood manager for your perfect arrangement.
After you get your fill on all of our Baggin’s treats, these are a few local gifts that all party hostess’ would love.
* Unique Christmas ornaments and decorations from the Seasoned Woman gift store. They have many under $20.00 that are simple and perfect for a hostess gift. And they will wrap it up in their cute whimsical bags ready to go.

* For a traditional idea, how about a champagne stopper or wine accessories at Table Talk. They have everything for that perfect tablescape,too.
We wish all of you a safe and happy holiday season.
“As we struggle with shopping lists and invitations, compounded by December’s bad weather, it is good to be reminded that there are people in our lives who are worth this aggravation, and people to whom we are worth the same.”
