Style in Spades :: Holiday Open House

December 4th, 2012

December is upon us, which means it’s time to break out the bubbly, hang copious amounts of paper garlands and swipe on the reddest lipstick you can get your hands on… party season has officially begun! I started the season early (tough job, right?) by partnering with kate spade new york to throw a series of holiday soirées with the festive factor turned way up. I’m beyond giddy to start unveiling the merry, sparkly and fizzy details, with tons of takeaways to inspire your own fête-ing this season. First up? A cozy-by-the-fire “holiday open house,” full of tartan plaid, hot cocoa and yes, the ultimate s’mores. Click through for all the details shot by Buff Strickland, including the kate spade new york pieces that inspired the entire look.

  16. […] Some of my most vivid childhood memories are of Christmas morning: waking up at the crack of dawn, reaching deep into the bottom of my stocking for every last treasure and devouring thick, warm slices of my mom’s famous almond kringle with mugs of hot cocoa. Now that I have a daughter of my own, I’ve been thinking about starting some special traditions for Phoebe’s first holiday, so we’re inviting our families to meet at our house for a Christmas morning brunch and gift exchange. Thought that our collaboration with kate spade new york was the perfect time to give it a test run, so I invited a few of my favorite families to celebrate early – blazing fire, presents under the tree, stacks of pancakes and all.
