Tis the season for parties. As a girl who just can’t help but put on parties, I can say they are a ton of fun but a lot of work! Cleaning, cooking, decorating then plus pre-party primping? It’s a lot! While hostess gifts should never be expected, I think a small gift is the sweetest gesture and it will ensure you’re invited back year after year. Here are some things I would be thrilled to receive (that tea towel says it all and is so cheap – I’d buy 10!)
I’m so excited to share our beadboard pantry, built from the ground up! It was a long process – we started the project in March (although it was a brain child for a year before then), and it is done, done, done. Not almost done, or just needs finishing touches. I mean done. And it feels good.
First, the pretty photos:
With so many parties and social engagements during the holidays I think it’s well worth it to buy a special dress to make your feel pretty all holiday long. To feel festive, you should look festive (and I’m not talking about ugly Christmas sweaters…) with a touch a bling, a swatch of red or green or a classic navy blue. Or go the super glitz route and recycle your Christmas look for New Years! With work parties, holiday dinners and events, you’ll get a lot of mileage out of it! Below are my picks for a festive holiday season.
Can you believe Halloween is almost here? You’ve seen my personal preference for black and white Halloween decorations – here’s some of the pictures that inspired my decor and food for the party I threw last year. Unfortnatly I’m terrible at multi-tasking the blogger/photographer/and party planner that I am, so hope these help get your imagination going. Halloween parties are some of the most fun!
