Entertaining essentials at your fingertips ~

Yes! Go ahead, open it…

because I’m excited about this!

You see,  I’ve re-purposed our picnic basket,

turning it into a holiday entertaining kit.

Okay, I know it’s not glitzy  but it

sure is handy,  to have

so many of my holiday entertaining essentials,

 in one place. This mobile kit is great for parties and for

when holiday guests drop in.

The goodies are tucked neatly, into little 

white boxes, which I can easily remove, if we want to

head out for a winter picnic!

(I’ll share a winter picnic soon! It’s so cool!)

  Anyway, these are some of the simple holiday extras, that

take my entertaining from good enough…to glam...I hope :)

 From the

 perforated cloth napkins I love

to use at our holiday parties…

to my collections of festive

holiday picks, striped

straws & twine.

I also gathered inexpensive

tea lights, matches and those little

French vocab cards, I like to use

as fun, cocktail glass-markers.

 I tucked in, an assortment of

glassine  bags…for treat takeaways

place setting goodies, 

pretty…paper, drink coasters

and parchment, for

those fun cones, I love to make.

Here they are,

our Girls Night In  Holiday gathering.

The house is aglow…

and my entertaining is made easier,

thanks to a simple 

holiday entertaining kit. 

I hope you pull one together,
