Good Monday Morning! It’s the most wonderful time of the year, but is anyone else as exhausted as I am??   I do really love all the festivities though. I really need to work on my Christmas shopping this week. I procrastinate every year!! One of my favorite spots to find unique ideas is Etsy – here are my latest favorites!

You know those hard to buy for people on your holiday list? The ones who seem to have everything? Well I’m happy to share my partnership with Maille to give you some gifting ideas to cure your gifting woes :)



Maille is the maker of those amazing mustards and vinegars you’ve likely heard about. They’ve been around for 270 years and were the official supplier to the court of Louis XV. Royal gossip – Louis XV’s mistress, Marquise de Pompadour, was a loyal customer (apart from the Queen’s Vinegar…!). I highly recommend you read Maille’s history (complete with photos) right here. Best “about” story I’ve seen in a long time.



Aaaanyway. Whether it’s served in Versailles or in my kitchen, I can assure you it’s good stuff. I use Maille on all sorts of dishes. The mustards are amazing on ham biscuits. The cornichons are awesome toppers for canapés, and the vinegars and dressings are great on salads among other dishes. They’re the perfect addition to your party menu to add a bit of something special.



My personal faves include the black truffle mustard, the mustard with champagne brandy and winter spices, and the mini gherkins! Check out more gifting ideas below, including their Le Creuset partnership.

Ah December… The month of long to do lists and busy schedules! It’s my favorite month of the year, but it definitely comes with it’s share of stress. And so I’m very excited to partner with to share some easy entertaining tips to keep things running smoothy for your next holiday gathering!


Jet’s website is extensive in the very best kind of way. They have everything you could possibly need for a holiday occassion, big or small. Their collection is full of unique items that feel special and give your holiday your special touch. Here are 5 easy entertaining tips to help keep you cool and sane this season.


Set a Warm and Inviting Scene


Pineapples are the very symbol of hospitality and warm welcome, so they make the best decoration! This gold pineapple cocktail shaker is not only really cute, it’s also functional! How fun would it be to mix up your signature holiday cocktail with this?



Get Festive with Interesting Barware


So you have your pineapple shaker, now serve up some holiday spirits in these adorable pineapple shot glasses! They would be so cute as part of a table setting, don’t you think? You can serve larger cocktails in this pineapple tumbler!



Treat Your Guests with Party Favors


Those cute pineapple shot glasses you served? Well they make exceptional party favors! Send your guests home with a memory of the party.



Serve What Suits You


A cake plate can be used for more than just cake! This glass cake plate works perfectly for displaying appetizers. Plus every buffet table looks best when the serving dishes are at varying heights. Thinking more outside the box, use this slate cheeseboard for something other than cheese, like little ham biscuits!



Serve Easy to Grab Finger Foods 


Finger foods are the easiest for your guests to grab and socialize! Stack up your favorites on a this tiered  tray and make the most of your space. And like we already talked about, this will help you vary the height on your buffet table. I also love this 3 tiered serving tray!



If your holiday gathering is just a few days away, no problem – all of these items qualify for 2 day shipping! Check out for more holiday inspiration, big or small!
