Clever Hostess Summer Gift. The next time you’re invited to a barbecue, cocktail party, or summer home, tote a lantern filled with bar essentials. Include a bottle of the hosts’ favorite tipple, beverage napkins, straws, a bar snack, fresh fruit, a mixer, and a citrus reamer. The lucky recipients will enjoy the instant bar and have gorgeous light for their outdoor soiree.
DIY Magic bottles: a clear, empty bottle (I used one with a cork but lids work as well) • destilled water • glycerin (i bought mine at the pharmacy) • glitter flakes, sequins, light plastic beads - anything that sparkles and is light enough to float around • some pretty twine or lace to wrap around the bottleneck
