I am a firm believer in celebrating one holiday at a time. I do not pull out any Christmas decorations or start listening to any holiday music until after Thanksgiving. Quite honestly, I try not to even start until after my birthday, on the 29th, but this year I might start decorating before Tuesday.

Last Friday night, Dr. Ash and I attended Jingle Bells and Cocktails: A Night of Glitz, Glamour, and Gourmet, the preview party for our local holiday house, Mistletoe Fair. Since it didn't start until 7:00 pm, we were starving and made a mad dash to the food line first. Delicious, heavy hors d'ouvres were served, along with wine, beer and cocktails. My plate consisted of a variety of dips--crawfish, spinach and artichoke, and quesadillas from the quesadilla buffet line. Everything was yummy! I tried the pomegranate wine and the green apple wine. I thought both were fun and festive for the holidays. We browsed the booths, making Christmas purchases at a few and stocking up on easy soup mixes. I cannot believe that I did not get one single picture! Bryan snapped this one of us after the party.

Outfit: Fifteen-Twenty blouse, Amrita Singh earrings, Steve Madden leopard heels, Tibi cropped pants, assortment of bracelets and vintage watches


Speaking of mistletoe, do any of you decorate with it? I grew up with there always being mistletoe somewhere in the house during the Christmas holidays. My daddy (now Bryan) would take a gun and shoot it out of a tree. Throughout the years I have used it in many different ways over doorways around the house. Here are some pretty images of it from Pinterest.

Be sure to catch your sweetie underneath it!


  1. Super cute outfit! Hope you had a great Thanksgiving!

  2. I love your outfit! Where did you get that top? It's so elegant!! I am so inspired to get decorating now. I have been looking at ideas for how to decorate the chandelier above our dining table, and photo 2 just might be it. I'm off to tag it on pinterest!

  3. Such fun mistletoe decor! Sounds like y'all had a great time at your Christmas event. :)

  4. I don't like decorating for Christmas until after Thanksgiving. I have never decorated with mistletoe or even kissed under it.
