If you're like us, you've been looking forward to the holidays since last New Year's. There simply isn't another time of year that captures that same feeling of hope, camaraderie, and peace. I mean, when else do you get a chance to relive the glory years with your best friends from high school and have meaningful, philosophical discussions about life with your favorite aunt? As many of these happenings occur during holiday gatherings, it was the notion of nostalgia that initially shaped our event. Likewise, it is the small, unexpected details that make a party memorable. Here, captured so beautifully on film by Heidi of White Loft Studio, we think you'll find a little of both! And even more right here in the full gallery.
And if you missed it, catch up on all the recipes and pretty DIY projects folded into the day starting with our Blueprints for crafting just such a shindig.

And followed by...
Dessert Recipes and the Yummiest Mulled Wine
An easy as pie Hanging Wreath
One of our favorites, a DIY Etched Wine Decanter
A Tiered Wreath Centerpiece that will steal the show
and last but certainly not least, printable tags and the perfect wrapping paper for all those holiday gifts

Enjoy crafting loves. We highly recommend doing so with a glass of Mulled Wine in hand. And the Happiest of Holidays from all of us at SMP! xoxo
