Holiday Tablescape~

I get giddy for an amazing tablescape!  I love hosting family and friends but I don't decorate my dining table nearly as much as I would like.  Love these images of decor inspiration, they may inspire you!
white branches with ornaments LOVE!
Simple & Classic

Red White Perfection
Unique, Earthy, Beautiful
This last image is my favorite, I love the organic style!  In 2013 one of my many goals will be to have more sit down dinners with unique tablescapes! 
I'll keep you posted on how I do!
Happy Entertaining Friends!!

Wednesday Words~


In the wake of such sadness, the kindness we show to each other
will be contagious.
I will show more acts of kindness; such as~ 
smile often,
hug my loved ones tight,
 always hold the door for others,
say "hello" to strangers,
say "thank you",
donate my extra clothes,
let the other car go,
complain less,
be grateful....

Wishing you all a kind and happy day!

A great way to greet your guests and nothing says the Holidays like a good drink to say, Cheers to each other!!  I found delicious cocktails and warm cozy drinks sure to put a smile on every ones face!!
Holiday Hot Chocolate
Festive Green Mojito
Colors of the Season red, Bloody Mary w/ green celery
Christmas Eggnog
Cranberry Cheer Cocktail

White Spiced Coffee

Champagne w/ cranberries~a big hit at my party!
A festive holiday drink is often a family tradition that many ring in the season with! Maybe one of these yummy drinks will be your new tradition!!
I love me some eggnog, even though I drank so much one Christmas when I was little.  I didn't even care about all the gifts Santa sent me :( Don't worry Mom & Dad I know it was not your fault, I snuck it because... I was obsessed !:)
Cheers Everyone!!

I have a heavy heart.  My thoughts and prayers go out to the familys in the Newtown Ct community.  There are no words for the horrific tragedy that occurred Friday but,  immense sadness.
