Thursday, Holiday Cocktails, and Etsy

It is the season for making merry and with that comes a string of parties. If I decided to have a holiday gathering this season I would definitely go with this invitation, in addition to being beautiful and unique, it uses the word soirée - that clinches it for me!
I think this silver origami garland could be used in so many ways- to decorate a tree, mantle, or doorway.

As an individual who usually eats dinner next to a tiny someone who only appreciates construction truck place mats, I would love to give this organza table runner and these taffeta napkins a whirl. What a lovely, wintry beginning to a table.
