So, as we a take a break from our regular scheduled programming, take a peak into my first attempt at putting on the “haute hostess” hat 🙂
I have been drooling over this Threshold for Target bar cart for the past several months. When my mom gifted us an early Christmas/housewarming present, I could not wait to style it for our new place, let alone for our first Holiday dinner!
For a classic and festive tablescape, I decided to play up our green accent wall. These placemats from HomeGoods were perfect!
I loved these fresh flowers from Trader Joe’s, adding in some fresh cranberries left over from my Sangria.
I couldn’t resist the gold cardboard trees and napkins from Target. I love the modern twise they add to the table setting.
We have always talked about trying something new and skipping over the heavy and “typical” holiday dinner. I mean, we just stuffed our tummies less than a month ago with turkey, carbs and all the fixings, so why not try something a little different. I love the idea of a simple pasta dish, side salad and yummy desserts.
And you can’t go wrong with a festive Sangria, right?
After we were done filling up on pasta and booze, it only seemed right to serve these mini caramel apple pies and sugar cookies.
