This weekend was a blast! I had so much fun hosting a festive holiday shindig Friday night. It was great having all of our friends over to celebrate the holidays! Here is a little glimpse into the party:
Tonight I am having some friends over for a little holiday celebration! I can't wait! I love Christmas and I love throwing parties and spending time with my lovely friends and when I can do all three of those things together I am like a kid on Christmas morning. I love spending the day decorating and cooking and I can't wait for tonight!
Here are some of my holiday favorites that serve as inspiration for tonight's little shindig:
Favorite Holiday Snack:
"Puppy Chow" aka "Muddy Buddies"
Favorite Food to Decorate:
Favorite Appetizer (for any occasion):
Bacon Wrapped Dates
Favorite Floraly Decor:
Favorite Inspirational Interior:
All White, duh
Rock Candy and Champagne...tip, the rock candy can work in mixed drinks as well. It is a great stirrer!
Favorite Hostess Outfit:
Something I can dance in:)
I hope you all have an amazing weekend! I will be sure to take lots of pictures and update you on Monday.
I have had a lot of changes going on in my life the past few weeks. I am trying to make some decision as to which direction my life is going to go now and at times it's all a little stressful. So today I plan on wrapping myself up in a big blanket, watching some episodes of revenge and drinking some hot cocoa. It is finally feeling a little colder here in Chicago, which hopefully means some snow is soon approaching.
I hope you all had a lovely weekend. No recap here. Just some down town with some special people.
With the holidays right around the corner I have been doing a little gift shopping here and there for everyone special in my life. I have quite a few people in my life that I need to get gifts for this year and most of them are ladies. With five sisters, a mom, stepmom and a few friends it isn't always easy to find individually perfect gifts for everyone.
Here are a few ideas that I have come up with over the past few weeks....
I am sorry for falling off the face of the earth for the past week and a half. I have had a lot going on and had to put the blog on the back burner. Here are some highlights that have been going on in my life the past week or so....
