Christmas Soirée

Reflections of a Christmas Soirée

Last year I hosted an intimate family dinner party complete with deep-fried appetizers, sparkling fruit drinks and a white elephant gift exchange.

The highlight of the evening was most definitely the adorable chalkboard wine charms by CharlieChalkDesigns. Selfies taken by glamorous cousins graced Instagram and Pinterest.

A touch of etiquette that I would like to adopt in the coming year is the giving of a gift for the hostess. Knowing how much work goes into making a memorable event for everyone makes even the smallest token of appreciation a generous way of letting those you love know how much they are appreciated. CharlieChalkDesigns graciously gave us this beautiful wooden “joy” ornament that will be treasured throughout the years to come.
