Amidst all of the pretty that we share on SMP is something far more important. It’s sharing that pretty with people that make you smile. That bring you joy. DIT (doing-it-together) moments that really last.  And celebrations like this one – designed by the lovely Kate of Domestikated Life with photos by Bring to Light Photography and flowers by Little Flower Cottage – remind us of just that. Doing it together. And doing it beautifully. Click here to see even more.

From Kate of Domestikate…The holidays can be a crazy busy time of year, so we decided to throw a little party for our best girlfriends that would allow us to celebrate together while being productive and tackling some Christmas projects. We brought together decorative tapes, papers, vintage holiday stamps and ribbons, and let everyone get crafty customizing plain note cards to send as Christmas cards. It was so much fun seeing everyone’s creative creations using all of the different materials.

After we finished card decorating, we hung them all up to dry and admired each other’s work while snacking on cheese and crackers and a tasty cran-bourbon fizz cocktail. The cocktails and snacks were a perfect accompaniment to some Christmas tunes and gift-wrapping! The space was decorated for the holidays with wintry green garlands, festive floral arrangement in rich hues, and a dash of sparkle from some vintage tinsel.

And no party is complete without sweets — we had a sampling of all different types of cookies and confections, and gave everyone little bags to take home to keep them going during the busy holiday season ahead. It was great to take a break from the holiday madness and enjoy time with friends, all while marking items off our Christmas to-do-list!
