If you want a white, you can't go wrong with the 2014 Butternut Chardonnay ($15).

Use a flower delivery service, especially if you are traveling. Once you arrive, cut and arrange some Fall flowers in a vase, tie with a pretty bow, and give the whole thing to the hostess. This way she won't have to find a vase, fill it with water, and cut the flowers in the middle of her party.
