From Jenny of At Your Door Events

Luxe and modern with a totally unexpected holiday color palette of pink. Touches of pinks and different types of metals play beautifully with faux furs, velvet and sequins for a perfect holiday celebration. Traditional holiday colors get a modern refresh with a feminine and fun pink wreath surrounded by different sizes of candles.


The splurge on this look was the fabulous modern pink tree silhouettes that gave some height and dimension to the tablescape. At the center of the table, an acrylic tree table number embellished the table. Softer elements of white garden roses with pink anemones and mistletoe greenery on a silver pedestal bowl balanced the modern look. The inspiration for the color selections and different textures came from the idea of a lustrous and timeless night out with your gal pals. The matching color art piece behind the table, the gleaming pink spheres that decorated the tree, the festive but feminine cake was to feel like a large scale but also an intimate full-on glam party for ladies with a lot of style.


What inspired Face It Sugar for this holiday shoot was hair and makeup from the 60s, specifically Twiggy and Brigitte Bardot. Big hair and dramatic liner with a touch of glam! Hunters Moon Jewelry brought in lots of different elements and mixed tones. From the dark black fabric tassel earrings, the cool tones in the silver necklaces and the gaudy large gold lion hoops. Pulling inspiration from vintage glam fashion and the iconic Versace. Handmade with love.

Sugar & Spice

Oftentimes dessert cocktails aren’t considered to be complex, but Mozart Pumpkin Spice Liqueur hits the notes of pumpkin pie, dark chocolate and a little chili. Combine this liqueur with expresso and you have the perfect after-dinner cocktail treat!


Pomegranate Mule

A festive pomegranate mule hits the spot with hints of rosemary! This refreshing libation hits the spot with snappy flavor of ginger smoothed out by the sweet tartness of fresh pomegranate juice! A dash of rose water happily rounds out all the flavors adding a nice floral touch.


Hole Mole Old Fashioned

An old fashioned made with finely aged anejo tequila is a perfect alternative to whiskey with hints of vanilla, caramel, toffee and chocolate from being aged in wooden barrels. A festive flair is brought about by bartlett pear, a dash of maple syrup, and mole bitters to add a complex kick of cinnamon, chocolate, and spice flavors.
