Style in Spades :: Holiday Open House

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.

Well played.

A little friendly competition in the form of scrabble and trivial pursuit makes the perfect fireside activity. Guests who just met will be laughing together like old pals in no time flat.

      Trust me when I say: eggnog is not the time to count calories. Just enjoy it. ;)

    I’ve been telling my boyfriend for the last few days that I want to host a small holiday party for a few friends. He was a little nervous because I live in a studio, but this post has given me all the inspiration I need. I have so many fabulous ideas now!
