Ready, Set… Celebrate!


Hosting during the holiday season can be a handful, you need to coordinate, prep, cook and on top of everything: ENJOY! It can be a difficult task, but we are here to give you some tips so you can host with style:

Put it in writing: Make lists for everything you need to do, from grocery shopping to sitting arrangements, everything in writing makes your life easier.

Make it personal: if you’re hosting for the first time make sure to “leave your mark” Use monogrammed napkins, fun trays, mix and match. We love our Typographer’s Linen Dinner Napkins

The Color of 2015 -Meet and Love Marsala



Is that wonderful time of the year when we see all the decorations, the trees changing color and Pantone announces the color of the next year! We are loving this. Marsala it’s a great color for any skin tone and it pairs well with cool and warm shades. It can be an accent or a full impact statement, it has richness and earthiness to it that makes it irresistible, reminds us of an amazing meal or a plush outfit. Marsala is elegant, beautiful and we love it.

Toast To Type: The Gingerbread Martini

toast-to-type-gingerbread While thoughts of Sugar Plums maybe dancing in your head, we have our sights set on something a little sweeter: gingerbread cookies! These tasty little morsels have us antsy for the the annual cookie swap party to roll around every year.

However, this holiday season we decided to put more of a grown up twist on our favorite treat. Served up in a martini glass or in our French Medallion Glass, a Gingerbread Martini is perfect for slowly sipping at your next holiday party! Glassware monogrammed with the flirty and sophisticated Shelley Allegro font makes a sweet and sassy play on the naughty but nice cocktail.

  • The Box…think outside of it! Holiday events, though fun, can become repetitive. So to avoid that usual dinner get together, create a theme for the gathering and allow for some unexpected touches. Just because you’re having a holiday meal does not mean you have to decorate with only red and green (actually please don’t do that).
