I have my first spouses coffee next week hosted by the Colonel's wife. I have read the protocol for these before, but I have a feeling this will be slightly more casual than some of the coffees I have read about. For instance, I strongly doubt the other women will be wearing gloves. 

I still plan to dress up and bring a hostess gift. This is what I am planning on wearing. I purchased this gorgeous lace dress from Ann Taylor for my bridal shower last summer. I know it is a little summery, but I am going to wear a sweater and belt it. 


In terms of the hostess gift; I haven't quite figured out what I want to bring yet. Pinterest has, of course, given me loads of ideas. I would bring a plant, but it is about to get really cold here. All the plants are going to die. 

Coffee / Hot Chocolate Gift Basket
Couldn't Find Actual Source- This is the Pinterest Page
I really like the idea of something like this. A little coffee/ hot chocolate gift set. I might just get a mug, a small tin of tea and a small jar of honey. 

tea gift
I love those little rock sugar sticks for tea. There is a wonderful tea shop in Sackets Harbor and I hope they have some. 
If anyone has any suggestions for hostess gifts I would love to hear them. 


  1. Ooh that sounds so fun! Can't wait to see what those are like. Love your Ann Taylor dress.

  2. Yesssss... a lovely tea/cocoa basket is adorbs! and really useful!! those are the types of goodies that make me swoon when I receive them!

    xo, Bev

  3. I found these super cute honey spoons (literally spoons with honey on them) at the commissary. I have been loving them and they would probably be a great addition.

  4. Cute ensemble! You can't go wrong with Ann Taylor! I can't wait to hear about the event!*
