Holiday Party | Food + Decorations + Outfit

Last night I hosted my annual Girl's Christmas Party.  I love these ladies so much and feel so grateful to have them in my life.  I wanted to share a few details.
Waiting for my guests to arrive:) I wanted to be festive so I wore a red blouse and statement necklace.

I just love holiday decorations.  They make me so happy and that is why I love entertaining during the holidays.  All the bright lights and colors are so magical.

I love nutcrackers.   I think they are so cute and festive for the holidays and my kids love them.  My brother and sister in law actually gift my nephew a new nutcracker every year and I think that is a sweet tradition.

I love to use wreaths placed around vases or candles for a different look. I found the wreath at World Market, looks like the exact one is not online but I really like this Eucalyptus one.

I also found this adorable antler wreath at World Market as well.

As for cocktails I decided to serve champagne with frozen cranberries for a festive touch.
 If you are looking for champagne glasses, I love these stemless ones.  They are light weight and come in a box of 4 with 4 different patterns from World Market.  Looks like they are sold out online right now, but I also love these too.

How adorable is this Cheers Drink Dispenser.  I thought it would be fun to do lemon water, but next time I may try and make spa water with cucumbers.

The food is always my favorite part of entertaining.

This was my first time making them and they are so good!  You can stick a pretzel in them right before serving to make them easier to pick up.

The ladies loved their wine and ornaments.
Antler Tray is on sale now! I think I mentioned yesterday but I love this Rose and it on sale at World Market right now for $8.  I am very picky about wine and for the price this one is really good.

All in all we had a great time!

Thanks to World Market for partnering on this post.
