This past Sunday, we posted one of our favorite parties yet: a Simple Christmas Soiree. Have you had a chance to see it? We’re seriously obsessed! When crafting the event’s initial blueprints, we knew it’d be good. But the final result, which may have had a little something to do with Heidi of White Loft Studio’s gorgeous photos, was nothing short of breathtaking. The treats and delicious mulled wine (for which we have recipes!) looked awesome. And of course, our resident DIY expert truly outdid herself on the easy accompanying DIY projects: a personalized wine decanter, hanging wreath, printable giftwrap and a stunning centerpiece. If you haven’t already, check it out. We promise it won’t disappoint!


If you were with us last Friday, you’ll also remember that we hosted a little Anthropologie giveaway in anticipation of the main event! Well, we’re back today to announce the two lucky ladies who will be receiving those adorable dessert stands. Congratulations, Hillary, winner of the cake stand, and Angie, winner of the cupcake stand!
