We are obsessed with this post on The California Wine Club's blog pairing wine with holiday cookies! From the opening line “Why should milk have all the fun?” to the fact that The California Wine Club actually has sound reasons for their suggested pairings, we were hooked. And then to reel us in, they created this great holiday cookie wine pairing chart. We are almost as impressed with this post as we are with their wine offerings. How fun would it be to gift a plate of yummy homemade cookies with the perfectly paired wine or better yet, 3 months worth of wine (use code QUALITY10 thru the end 12.115.28 to get 10% OFF!)

Every winter party needs a hot cocoa bar and Shindigz has just what you need! Hosting a hot chocolate party not only sounds amazing, but it's also a fun way to treat your guests. Choose personalized hot chocolate packets for each guest or make your own mixture and add it to these beautiful Apothecary Jars. Either way, your guests will be talking about your hot cocoa bar for years to come.
It's that time of year and if you have not already, you will most likely receive at least one invitation to an ugly sweater Christmas party. Since we are pretty sure you don't have anything ugly hanging in your closet we have put together a few inexpensive options for you to look great wearing ugly!
This year our “go to” ugly sweater shop is Ugly Christmas Sweaters !
DIY Ugly Sweaters
The easiest and most inexpensive option is to simply take a sweater you already own and ugly it up. Just pin on goofy holiday related items. You can actually order an Ugly Christmas Sweater Kit on Amazon and on Ugly Christmas Sweaters.
Our second stop is generally Amazon because they have a ridiculously large selection of the ugliest sweaters we have ever seen. Since this is not a sweater you will wear over and over again, at least for us, price trumps quality every time.
Foxy everything is by far the latest and greatest animal obsession to hit the states. It all started with the Ylvis – The Fox (What Does the Fox Say?) Video parody created by a Norwegian comedy duo. In just under a month they have racked up 100 million YouTube views, have the web’s most-streamed song, and have booked guest appearances on Ellen Degeneres and the Today Show. This video has even spawned this year's best group Halloween costume.
Now that we are all hooked on the absolute adorableness of the fox, we can definitely see fox / woodland theme popping up in holiday cards, birthday parties, baby showers and even as nursery wall art. We are at once surprised at just how much fox “stuff” is available and yet how hard it is to find products that work for party decor without having to DIY.
Fox Theme Invitations & Birth Announcements
Let's start with the invitations. Remember invitations and announcements are like the title of a paper – they set the tone for the entire celebration!
