I love a gathering. Whether it's an all out cocktail party or an intimate dinner party, It is a time where you can bring on the glitz and just enjoy the company of friends and family. I usually take the opportunity to dress up this time of year. The holidays just make it okay to overdress, especially if you are the host. This past week, my sister in law rocked a tight mini dress and patterned tights as she hosted Christmas eve for our family. In the east and midwest, with all this snow, it might be a good idea to wear snow boots and switch out to heels at the party.
A bottle of wine is an easy, go-to gift for the hostess, but a unique, personalized gift is so much more memorable. Custom napkins, embroidered with their initial or favorite quote would be a gift they could use over and over again, through years of holiday parties and get-togethers.
