This past weekend my husband and I hosted a festive Christmas Party at our house! Since we both have our own businesses, and can be a little MIA when it comes to social functions, we decided early in November that we wanted to have a little get together for our family and friends. It is so easy to get caught up in day to day life and we don’t get to see our family and friends nearly enough, so we were both thrilled about the party! We wanted it to be a dressy and festive evening so the first step was designing an invitation that went a long with that theme. I called my friend Danielle Nance, who owns Noteworthy Concepts and has a plethora of amazing invitation lines including Arzberger and Haute Papier. I opted for classic ivory card stock with gold letter pressed foiled and a very fun lime green lining. They arrived packaged so beautifully I almost hated to open the box!
I wanted to keep the decorations for my house simple! I used a lot of smilax on the mantles and had candles everywhere! I love the ambiance a candlelight room creates!
We had a local restaurant, Starfire, cater and they did a fabulous job. Our favorite was the sesame seared tuna. Needless to say, there wasn’t a bit left at the end of the night!
All in all, it was a wonderful evening with the people that mean the most to us! Out sweet pup, Deacon, didn’t get to join in on the fun but once the party was over I brought him out for one last photo opt! Merry Christmas everyone!!
