We are so excited to host more holiday parties it makes us so happy seeing our house full of family!! I made my favorite Christmas tea and charcuterie boards for Christmas Eve and can’t wait to do it again for New Year’s eve!! I got the Christmas Tea recipe from Lauren Steele–she made it for us last year and omggg it’s amazing! It’s definitely become a holiday staple around here. I’ll share the recipe at the end of this post!!
I picked up these Libbey wine glasses–they are perfect for the Christmas tea. It’s nonalcoholic but the wine glasses make it look fancyyyy. They really are great for any drink! I was so happy that I could find all these kitchen essentials for the holiday parties. The Home Depot had so many great options for items that were so pretty and elegant for the holidays.
