Give: Gardenias

Rob and I visited friends and their brand new baby in the hospital last night. An adorable almost-nine pound little buddha with a full head of hair. There are few things better than holding a sleeping two day old for an hour!

We brought a little knit bear for the baby and some flowers for the new mom with us. You can get fresh gardenias at the florist for about $1.50 each (or less, especially at the end of the day). Paired with a simple bowl, they're great for bedside fragrance and affordable too.

What a nice idea! (And perhaps a bit of a spin on the corsage, which wouldn't be practical for a new mom?)
