The Hostess was originally a patrol badge which a certain proportion of the patrol had to pass for the patrol to display the badge on their flag.  It had to be retaken biennially as a patrol badge.  In 1943, it was available as a patrol badge or an individual badge.  By the late 1940s it was just an individual badge.

The design was always a cup and saucer:

1943 - 1967

1968 - 1994

1995 - 1999

In 1999, the badge was discontinued.  It has since been replaced by the Party Planner badge.
