2011 Holiday Event

Greetings from Easton Place Designs' "holiday workshop"! I've been busy planning this year's holiday fun and today the event is revealed. Starting today and for the next three weeks Easton Place Designs shoppers will be receiving extra goodies with their purchases!!! Here is the schedule of giveaways:

Today - December 4:
With a purchase of $50 or more you receive a set of 8 petite cards. You choose the EPD design you want and the wording as well!

December 5 - 11:
With each set of stationery purchased, you get to choose an EPD greeting card to go along with it! ANY Easton Place Designs card is part of the week's giveaway. So feel free to stock up on holiday, birthday, mother's day, teacher gifts etc!!

December 12-18:
A free Staedtler Triplus Fineliner marker pen with EACH set of stationery! I will do my best to color coordinate the inks to match the stationery sets. It's a fun little bonus perhaps for yourself this time... to write your thank you notes for after the holidays!

I hope you all take advantage of the goodies in this year's holiday event! I had fun putting things together. I wish you a very Happy Hanukkah, Merry Christmas, Happy Kwanza and Happy New Year! Whatever holiday you celebrate this month, may it be a joyous event for all!

Thanksgiving's Almost Here!

My family does a great job of splitting up the holiday hosting duties. I happily host Thanksgiving every year. It's my favorite holiday! I've put together a couple of inspiration photos (found on Pinterest) along with the invitation I sent out and this year's menu. I'd love to hear about your Thanksgiving plans. Feel free to share in the comments.
Happy Thanksgiving, friends!

Holiday Gift Guide: Hostess Gifts

Who has started their holiday shopping? I've not, but I have started thinking about it. I received a flurry of invitations last week which made me think about hostess gifts. I do try to keep a few items on hand for hostess gift giving, but I also like to give more personal gifts on occasion. Below is a collection of gift ideas you may want to borrow for your host/hostess gift giving needs.

For these and other gift giving suggestions, you can visit my Pinterest Hostess Gift Giving Board. Feel free to leave a comment telling me your favorite hostess gift to give and receive!

Halloween 2011 Party Recap

We had a small Halloween party this year without children. The party was held on my birthday (Oct. 28) and I felt brave enough to request this year's gathering be for "Grown-up Ghouls only". My boys were disappointed at first, but then realized there was a school dance that same night, so we all had fun! A special thank you to my friend, Cathy, for taxiing to and from the dance that night. She was a designated driver and I was enjoying the homemade Sangria!

Invitation by Easton Place Designs

This year's menu was similar to last year, but we changed it up a bit...

And here are a few photos from the evening...
