I look at everyone’s pictures of celebrating with friends and families and all the pins on Pinterest, so my head is full of fun ideas.
I grew up with my Mom decorating the house for every season and holiday. It’s pretty magical in the Garton house during Christmas and winter, so I have to at least live up to that. Here’s what I’m envisioning for my dream apartment:
*You’d be greeted to the party with a cute felt wreath on the apartment door.
*The entryway would be full of Cotton Ball Snow coming from the ceiling and the wall facing the door. It would feel like you’re walking into a beautiful snow fall.
*There would be mercury glass votives placed throughout the apartment to make it cozy and sparkle.
* Since I will have a wall of chalkboard paint, I will do something like this:
* And then of course there will be a tree! As you know, I love this one from Rockstar Diaries
The main reason to have my party would be a cookie exchange! If you haven’t heard of this, all you do is ask everyone who comes to bring a couple dozen cookies to exchange. Ultimately each person should bring around 2-4 dozen cookies, recipe cards, and a container to bring cookies home. Everyone will leave happy and full.
The Food and Drinks
* We’d serve Christmas mojitos, Hot Cocoa with Kahlua, White Russians, Spike Eggnog, and maybe a non-alcoholic punch.
* I don’t know what else I’d serve since there would be a cookie exchange. What do you think?
The night would be full of sweets and drinks! Oh, and my lovely friends and family.What are you doing for your holiday party?
