The new year will soon be upon us. And with that, the dreaded resolution. So let’s skip that and head right to planning. For some time now I’ve felt like there was a bigger window of expression for me to entertain, my motto has always been that style is not about fashion. It’s how you live your life. Wholly. So that being said, there will be some additions. I’m going to post on fashion, food, decor, arts entertaining and more. So I thought, what the heck, nothing says entertaining more then the holidays, and so I thought I’d share with you my party that I hosted last weekend. 16 people took a bit of planning, a lot of prep and a delicious smelling home
Decor is such a matter of taste, but one thing I know for certain, Christmas does not have to be red and green not even a children’s table. Find a little way to add moments of magic and glitter that offer something unexpected not same old
It might be a bit of a surprise to know, that cooking and baking are a passion of mine. And something that I pride myself on. I’ve always felt like they can provide such crucial moments to create memories. I look forward to sharing more posts with you. But for this first, quite long post, I’ll keep it to the minimum with a few stars of the meal
This asparagus walnut tart is so fulfilling!! And although learning a puff pastry from scratch is daunting. It almost always is so satisfying and if you have the time I highly recommend.
Dining does not have to be fussy to be fine. Some of my favourite foods are those classics that are just made well with good ingredients. So homemade potato chips with lovely dips are totally acceptable at the appy bar. Really just monitor the heat of the oil and adjust. Otherwise the only real helpful tool in this is a mandolin which can be a lifesaver. There’s nothing better then a perfectly seasoned crunch. And if kids are there. Create little cones so they feel like they have there personal bag of chips. They’ll think that’s pretty cool
Desserts are the Crown Jewels and these two did not disappoint. But I would be amiss to not totally fully wholeheartedly endorse how amazing this gingerbread bundt cake was. The most moist cake I have ever had!!And the salted butter apple galette provided a comforting classic. Neither disappointed but I will be making the cake again. Very soon
Happy holidays and I hope that any of these ideas or recipes might provide you with the same enjoyment they did me and my family.
