Chinese New Year's Dinner Party Etiquette

This is not truly 'Houndish so I hope the Thread Gods will please understand. I didn't know where else to ask and am betting many of you will be able to help me.

I have been honored with an invitation to a small dinner gathering on the 14th, Chinese New Year?s. I did a bit of research and am wondering if the following would be proper w/o being presumptous: a small bouquet of red flowers for the hostess and a red envelope with a piece of chocolate for her and all attending.

Would this show respect for their culture and thank them or would I be being rude?
