It’s almost here! My favorite day of the year is just a few sleeps away. As most of my readers know, we’re hosting the big event this year. First on my list of Christmas prep to-do’s was getting the table set and ready to go. We still need to pop in the leaf and set up a few seats at the bar, but other than that we’re pretty much ready to go. I did a little trial run with the place settings yesterday, these photos are the result of that. I’ve also left all glassware off the table because we’ll be setting up a couple drink stations for easy access throughout the day. Let the festivities begin!
Hi, friends! How are you!? I can’t believe Christmas is next week! #Crazytown.
We’ve been two very busy bees prepping for our first holiday season in the new house and first time hosting Christmas. We’re currently expecting a full house of 12 on December 25th but that number may grow a bit so we’re doing everything we can to plan for the unknown. Any and all tips are welcome! I’ve never hosted Christmas before so I’m thrilled to finally have an opportunity to bust out my red and green china, play around with a few fun new recipes, and decorate a little more than we usually would. It really is the most wonderful time of the year. Now if I can just remember to water the tree I think it’ll be a success!
Last month my friend Cinnamon and I hosted a bachelorette weekend for her sister (and one of my sweetest friends), Dentyne! Dentyne and I met our freshman year of college and I couldn’t be more grateful for our relationship. She’s a gem. And she totally deserved a memorable bachelorette weekend with her girls! Throughout the planning process we learned a few things that I think you’ll find especially helpful if you’re throwing a bachelorette weekend yourself!
