Be a Good Guest with These Local Treats
The holiday season is always packed with parties and special events. Show your host some appreciation and bring along these local treats.
By Haley Phillips
For Candle Collectors
Who doesn’t love the crackle of a candle? Find a few that smell as good as they look at Baglady Boutique (1111 E. Republic Road, Springfield).
For the Foodie
Anything at Brown Derby Wine Center & Marketplace (2023 S. Glenstone Ave., Springfield) is a safe bet, but create a basket full of cheeses, olive oils and other gourmet goodies and you’re sure to have a happy host.
For the Entertainer
A beautiful serving board or platter is the foundation of every entertainer’s spread. Inspire your host’s next menu with one of these serving staples at Ellecor Interior Design (623 S. Pickwick Ave., Springfield).
For the Decorator
Help feed the habit with a new cute pillow or wooden sign from The Market (2628 S. Glenstone Ave., Springfield).
For the Wine Connoisseur
Before you reach for a boring bottle of Cab, talk to the experts at Macadoodles (455 E. Independence St., Springfield). Find a bottle to match their preferences, then add a note of what foods pair best with the selection to complete the gift.
