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 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).

Friendsgiving with Claiborne & Lime!

friendsgiving tablescapeHow will you be celebrating Thanksgiving this year? Gathered ’round a large family table? Having a lovely dinner for two? How about with some of your closest friends?

We can’t always make it home for the holidays. With the increasing deadlines, air travel prices, and miles between family, it can prove to be tricky to see them every Thanksgiving. That doesn’t mean you have to forgo the Turkey Dinner and celebrations or resorting to take out {no-way josé!} Instead, why not host a Friendsgiving?!

Terrific Thanksgiving Sides!

terrific thanskgiving sidesAlthough we love Thanksgiving for the excuse to gather all our loved ones together at one table, let’s face it, we look forward to it all year for the food! With the Thanksgiving feast, just around the corner this is the weekend to be in list making and grocery shopping mode! The turkey is a given, but have you finalized all your trimmings and sides yet? Turkey may be the star of the show, but we feel the supporting cast of extras shine just as much and should be just as tasty!
