My husband and I, along with hosting our annual very merry cocktail party, will be hosting our family Christmas for the first time this year. I’m going all out for the holidays this year! I love everything about the winter holiday season—the food, the music, the lights and decor, the cocktails, the energy, time with family and friends and I love wrapping gifts!  

I thought I would share that Mpls.St.Paul Magazine is hosting an event next weekend called Perfect Parties! For all of you foodies, hostesses and aspiring party planners, this is the event to hit up.

At the event, you will learn how to celebrate the holidays in style. There will be:
