I am sure so many of you are hosting parties or gatherings this season, so here are some fun things I love you can pick up to help make your them festive and fun!

1. Spoonflower has a HUGE selection of unique prints you can have made into wrapping paper!

2. & 3. Black and white or even leopard ribbon dresses up even the simplest paper.

4. HILARIOUS ugly Christmas sweaters dress up a bottle of wine.

5. Equally hilarious is this wine tote.

6. My favorite champagne coupes (I treated myself to a set this fall!)

7. A set of these stag print cocktail glasses would look great on a bar (and totally affordable too at under $4 a glass!).

8. A slate cheeseboard lets you mark which cheese is what- and also is a KILLER gift for a hostess.

9. Love these string light pillars!

10. Peppermint Bark is my major holiday weakness. I cannot say no.

11. Oh, and it comes in hot chocolate form too??? I’m in trouble.

12. Malachite print paper cocktail napkins are glam.

13. ADORE these antler stocking hangers. Andrew says I can;t have any more antlers but…..

14. A fux fur tree skirt- my dogs would prbably think this was their new dog bed!

15. A sweet little gold dish!

16. Faux mistletoe (because real mistletoe is DEADLY to pets and children- do not hang it in your house! I learned the hard way with a $1,200 vet bill!)

17. These otomi print stockings are so great!

18. These Nest holiday candles are a fantastic scent to fill the house with!

19. You can’t have a holiday party without a cozy fire- this log holder is chic an anything!

20. A square boxwood wreath looks great on your door or inside the house!

Three New Boston Shops of Note

December 3rd, 2013

I’ve been so busy finishing up the book that I feel I’ve not had a second to just take time to explore what’s happening in the city these days. I think next weekend I’ll spend a day wandering downtown and seeing what’s up.  What reminded me of this was the discovery of two new South End boutiques, Evolve Residential and Farm & Fable and one new bridal boutique on Beacon Hill, Ceremony.

Evolve’s retail shop is drop dead gorgeous and I cannot wait to pop in and see it soon- the grey walls and trim make me swoon pretty hard.

Farm & Fable is a vintage cookbook and kitchenwares shop with such a great look, no? Plus, check out the space they’ll be using for cooking classes! How fun!

Ceremony in Beacon Hill looks like the best place to spend a day trying on gorgeous gowns, no? And now there will be someone carrying my favorite bridal designer, Lela Rose, in our fair city! (Where were these guys 8 years ago when I was getting married?)
