Color palettes and gift ideas on the brain this morning as I gear up for three holiday gatherings over 4 days.
I'm in the mode, not only of preparing to hostess, but of preparing for all the ancillary, last-minute details that come with doing so. Outfit, for example. Not just something that looks good, but that is comfortable in a utilitarian sense. What shoes am I wearing, and will they allow me to spring into action, refill a glass, or clean up a spill without blistering? Speaking of spills, do I mind if I spill on the outfit? Is is irreparably delicate? Do I need an outfit on deck just in case some catastrophic explosion of food does take place? A post exclusively on this coming soon, but in the meantime, know I'm mulling it over, perhaps with more intensity than necessary.
Stay tuned for hostess gifts inspo, party favor ideas, and thank you strategies. That's what the Monday before the holidays are in full swing are for.
