This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group™ and Soma, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #givesoma  http://cmp.ly/3/8vNxcO.”

We love hosting cocktail parties, dinner parties, casual kid-friendly build-your-own pizza dinners and more. There is nothing better (or easier) than a Saturday night with friends at someone’s home. The kids can run around, make noise, make messes and the adults can talk, eat and enjoy each other’s company. It’s the best.

But, I also love a good adults-only night. I put together this very simple table setting for the holidays. I envision doing something like this with just one other couple and no kids. How often do we get good quality time with our close friends? Not often enough. I like the idea of making time with friends special, but not too fussy.

I used gold chargers we own from last year with our regular white dinner plates. I included ornaments from the Christmas tree like this. Then I simply filled a glass jar with faux snow and a gold candle. Very simple yet beautiful. While wine with dinner is lovely, guests always want water at our parties and it’s embarrassing to have them get it out of the faucet or even the fridge.

I love how stylish Soma is and how it fits in at a beautiful dinner table, a casual buffet or a fancy schmancy water/bubbly bar.

Soma is a beautiful product that uses an innovative water filtration system. And the filter is 100% biodegradable.  Their commitment to creating a sustainable product, that promotes health and wellness, and their desire to provide people in need with clean drinking water is so compelling. I love adding fresh organic fruit to the pitcher for a nice flavor and a beautiful look. I’ve recently heard of people freezing cranberries and using the little red beauties as ice. That would work so well in the Soma.

Soma would make a great gift for the holidays for the hostess in your life, or the hard-to-buy for family member.

When you purchase Soma for $49, you are automatically enrolled in their fresh filter program, which sends replacement filters to your home every two months. The cost is $12.99 (less than $0.25 per day). Shipping is always free. And every filter you buy helps bring clean, safe drinking water to those in need. The video above talks about their water in Ethiopia program.
