It’s beginning to look, feel, sound, taste and smell a lot like Christmas… I love this time of year leading up to the holidays. Let the shopping, eating, baking, drinking, entertaining, celebrating with friends and visiting with family begin.
Tonight I am thrilled to be attending a preview of Martha Stewart’s Holiday Craft Sale. Employees of the company are talented and creative. They are selling handmade items which includes: jewelry, scarves, accessories and home décor items. The sale is open to the public tomorrow from 12-6.
Another unique shopping opportunity is the Brooklyn Flea.
Sunday is Christmas tree time! Trimming the tree is one of my favorite holiday rituals. I traditionally host a party inviting my friends to decorate my tree. This year, I am helping a friend deck his halls.
Another friend hosts a cookie exchange party annually. This year I have been invited to a cookie decorating party and a cooking contest party. Prizes will be awarded for: Best Presentation, Best Taste, Looks Store Bought, and Nice Try…Better Luck Next Year. Love that my friends are getting so creative and what a fun way to entertain in a recession.
