Holiday Party Favorites

My favorite thing about the holiday season is holiday parties! I’m a sucker for a good holiday party. I think it really stems from too many old movies growing up. So I have this really fantastic idea of holiday parties that they include champagne, records, big skirts, witty banter, and maybe Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy.

Not that I’ve imagined this scenario a thousand times or anything. I just watched Desk Set this weekend and it may have one of my favorite Christmas party scenes of all time. I’ve also been watching The Holiday a lot lately and just relate a little too well to Rose so I’ve had to give it up and it’s all Doris Day from here on out.

I have a few parties coming up and I’ve had some friends ask for suggestions on fun party supplies. Since I love a good party, it wasn’t that hard to find tons of great stuff. My favorite cups ever are from Sucre Shop, which also happens to be based in Saint Louis. I can’t imagine who wouldn’t want these cups at their party.

If you want amazing invitations to your party, check out these from Cheree Berry Paper, also a Saint Louis company. I spent like a solid two hours on this site going through all of the amazing invitations and notes. I am obsessed with every single thing. I have never felt more motivated to host a party or to start writing letters so I can get some notes. Not only do they make the best invitations, they have these pickup line napkins, these cocktail napkins, and this adorable reindeer game.

Some of my favorite party picks from this roundup include these monogrammed glasses and these Kate Spade wine stops, so adorable! And no holiday bar is complete without the perfect bar cart like this one that also happens to be a serious steal.

What are some of your favorite holiday party traditions you’re looking forward to?

This weekend was spent in a beautiful city high in the snowy mountains of Colorado called Breckenridge. Have you ever heard of it?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It's picturesque and has some of the kindest locals I've ever met.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
For those of you who don't know of it, here are some interesting facts about this small city:
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
▪️Nearly 70 lbs. of gold was said to be mined in Breckenridge during the gold rush.
▪️The Gold Pan Saloon is one of the oldest running pubs in the country. It was founded in 1859 (I was there!).
▪️The town of Breckenridge is 7 miles long and 2 miles wide.
▪️The highest chairlift in North America is Breckenridge’s Imperial Express. At its peak it reaches 12,840 feet.
▪️The entire town has free Wi-Fi for both residents and visitors alike.
▪️More than 3 million people visit Breckenridge each year.
⠀⠀⠀
If you're thinking of taking a winter sports break, Breckenridge is the place to do it. Snowboarding, skiing and tubing are just some of the highlights the city offers! 🏂

  • Saturday afternoon plans I don’t want to cancel.☀️ @garyjanetti is one of the funniest writers and we probably don’t deserve him. Add this to your reading list because it’s fantastic and hilarious. I’m not into audiobooks at all, like please don’t ever recommend them to me because I will report you to the police, but I would listen to Gary read the audiobook of his because he’s so funny and I think it would be an absolute delight. 5 stars. 💛

  • Found my new favorite high-waist jeans 👖❤️ It took me a really long time to find a pair to replace my favorite Gap pair that ripped in the butt while I was leaving a Barnes & Noble months ago. 😐 Lesson learned to not trust $20 jeans. I’m writing a whole post to give you some insight into how I created a more curated closet and some of my standards to be less wasteful in my shopping habits. If you have questions about shopping more thoughtfully, pairing down your closet, etc., feel free to leave them in a comment! 👇🏻⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • The outfit I’ll probably wear all of fall. 🍂 Just insert leather jacket. In other news I’ve given up using my blow dryer on the weekends. Well I do blow dry my bangs because if you don’t blow dry bangs you are living a wild, lawless life I am not prepared to live. 😬 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
