Happy Hanukah!!

I love it when Hanukkah and Christmas overlap. It means the Mr. and I get to celebrate our holidays together :) So whether you spell it Channukah, Hanukah or Hanukkah, we hope you have an amazing holiday season! Now go eat some latka’s for me :)

PS Yesterday I had someone ask me if they decided to change the correct pronunciation to Ch- anukah. Dead serious.

Drink of the Week: Eggnog Martini

Drinks No Comments by Nicole

It’s finally time! Hannukah is getting ready to start and Christmas is this weekend! If you are one of the lovely couples who have chosen to get married near the holidays you have so many great drink ideas to use as your signature cocktail but I think this one really sums up the feeling the holidays bring. This might also be a great opportunity to have a pair of signature cocktails since eggnog is one of those things you either love or hate :) I hope everyone enjoys their week and gets to spend time with loved ones.

Things We Heart: December

I’m not sure these amazing cake shooters need much introduction. I mean, look at them. who wouldn’t want to dive head first into these puppies! Plus think of the nostalgia! Growing up, weren’t push up pops like the coolest thing since baked bread? The answer is yes.

So, despite what many people believe, not everyone likes to dance. Sad but true. Why not offer some board games so those guests can have something entertaining to do after dinner while watching you break out on the dance floor. I think this is such a cute idea and can really engage your guests! Choose games that you and your hubby like to play together to make it more personal!

This is an idea that your groom will be ecstatic about. Order some personalized pint glasses (which should be fairly affordable), have your guests use them the night of your wedding and then they get to take them home as a favor! Who doesn’t have a great collection of pint glasses to remind you of where you have drank yourself silly?! I know I do….

I love these bracelets to give to your bridesmaids as a gift! They are nice to wear on almost an occasion and you can personalize them for each of your ladies :) They will run you about $60 a pop but are well worth it!

Set up a Wish Wall. This idea is so cute and simple and looks amazing when it’s finished! Uncommon goods no longer sells this version, but get crafty and design your own. Your guests can leave well wishes inside (use paper in your wedding colors) and skip signing the guest book.
