Our 3rd Annual Cheese & Wine Party

Our 3rd Annual Cheese & Wine Party

Holiday break is in full swing for me! Even though it will be a shorter break from work than normal this year, I’ve been trying to pack in as many holiday activities as possible. I sure do miss those days of winter break when I was in school! I’ve been busy baking cookies, wrapping presents, watching Hallmark movies and listening to endless Christmas music. It’s finally given me a chance to recap our annual holiday party that happened earlier this month.

I’m so fortunate to have partnered with Winc for another year to supply our party with the perfect array of wine! After all, wine is an essential part of this party! Winc brings brings bottles straight to your doorstep, making it easy for you to be party-ready at any time.

It’s been about three months since we moved out of our Alki Beach apartment in West Seattle and into our first home in Burien, our new little hood south of Seattle. So far, I have to say it’s a charming little town. One particular shop on the main drag of Olde Burien, named The Shoppe Seahurst, caught my immediate attention on Instagram with their adorable printed art. They were kind enough to supply a few prints for the party! I am seriously in love with the “Merry & Bright in Burien” print. It’s such a welcome addition to our new home. Next time you’re in the area, be sure to stop in. They’re a lifestyle and home goods store with a touch of stunning antique furniture finds, and everything is adorable (don’t say I didn’t warn you). I wandered in the other day and was almost persuaded by a 23-wick candle.

Another brand that I’m so thankful for this year is The Bouqs Co.. They’re been providing me with the most beautiful arrangements and greenery for a few years now, and each time they send me something I can’t help but swoon. All of their arrangements are stunning, and so unique. You can’t find these gatherings in a store. They provided me with quite a few things for the party and it added such fresh life into the space. Plus, all the greenery smelled amazing! I hung their Noel wreath on the front door and wrapped it with dewdrop lights, and placed a couple of their pine and berry centerpieces on tables along with some of their beautiful bouqs.

I was so fortunate to have my dear friend Caitlin helping me out this year! She launched her event planning business, Pacific Event Productions, earlier this year and I loved having her around during the day to help set up before guests arrived! She is such a positive ray of light and provides amazing creativity to all of the events she plans! If you’re in the Seattle area and in need of someone to help plan your next event, be sure to look her up!

Once again, the party was a huge success! I’m so blessed to have such an amazing group of friends in my life who took time out of their busy holiday schedule to spend with Adam and I in our new home.

Cheers to a happy, healthy 2019 filled with lots of love and friendship! A huge thank you to Winc, The Bouqs Co. & The Shoppe Seahurst – you all helped make this party one to remember!

Until next year!

Happy Holidays
