1. Holiday Happy Hour

    I feel like the next two weeks are just a series of Holiday Happy Hours over and over again, am I right?! Of course there are the big holiday nights, but what about all the ones in between where the in-laws and cousins are still in town so the whole family wants to pop over, or the nights your high school friends want to swing by and finally see your home… in preparation of these little get togethers, I went out and bought a few party props so I am always ready for people to stop in. Festive drink stirrers, gold double old…

  2. Host Hanukkah Dinner

    Isn’t it so nice that Hanukkah and Christmas fall over the same weekend? Compared to previous years where I am rushing to get gifts and decorate, I have had what feels like a full season to get festive and prepare!! We are planning to host an array of Hanukkah celebrations of the course of the eight days, but I wanted to create a pretty dinner for the first night to kick off the celebration. I have to say that in shopping for this Hanukkah tablescape I was incredibly disappointed at all the cheesy decorations out there… the only cute thing I…

  3. Create the Prettiest Dessert Bar and Chilled Affogatos

    I am just loving sharing Holiday Dessert ideas {see more here} so today I created a classic coffee dessert with a Miami twist. I am taking the popular affogato drink – a mixture of ice cream and coffee – and giving it an extra cool new ring. In Miami we want to cool down {even in December} so I took my china tea cups {similar} and filled them with vanilla frozen yogurt to start. Next up, cold Starbucks Double Shot Espresso & Cream on top {the classic recipe calls for hot espresso or a dark brew}. For a little extra, I topped…

  4. Reindeer & Rosé Blogger Party

    Last Thursday night I hosted local bloggers and influencers in my home to celebrate the Holidays with a Reindeer & Rosé Event alongside Event Planner and Blogger The Celebration Stylist. We made wreaths and ornaments, decorated cookies and cupcakes, nibbled on exquisite catering, drank an array of merry cocktails and bubbly, and took in endless Holiday decor and tabletop inspiration. It was my most festive event to date! As guests entered the party they were greeted with a bar cart filled with Le Grand Courtage Bubbly and The Sweet House’s adorable ornament cupcakes. They then headed in for homemade Martinelli’s Apple Cider and Champagne Cocktails and a selection…

  5. Winter White Dinner Party

    I am seriously in love with this Winter White Holiday Table I created for my Holiday Blogger party last week! You guys know I tend to start my tablescapes with a white or ivory tablecloth as my base, but after finding this Mode Living grey floral print, I knew it would be the perfect contrast to arrangements of winter white flowers and white china! I am so excited to share how I put this table together, but even more excited about how versatile this table can be for any upcoming Holidays and well into the New Year. I started by placing this gorgeous table cloth…
